Congrats to our High School One Act Play Company! They competed at district in Post, TX yesterday and came back with several awards!
Our technical award went to Geneva Natal. Honorable mention all-star cast awards went to Kaden Lance and Brandon Ureste. All-star cast went to Cade Simmons (Josh Bates accepting on his behalf), and Abernathy High School is now home to the best actress in the district: Samantha Richerson! We also received alternate play! All the schools competing performed extremely well, and this is something we are very proud of!
Thanks for the support from our staff and community this year! It was a successful one act play season!
The softball JV game vs Slaton that was originally scheduled for March 6th has been cancelled.
Abernathy Elementary robotics competed at the Texas Tech Trial Run practice competition on Saturday. Abernathy teams placed 10th, 19th, 24th and 43rd out of sixty five teams. Abernathy is looking forward to the final competition on April 7th.
The Abernathy High School One Act Play will be performing their play, Violet Sharp at the Abernathy Auditorium on Sunday, March 4th. Please come support these students before they compete at district on March 7th! While you're there, stop by the casserole and dessert sale directly after the play at the cafeteria. Each casserole will be $15 and the desserts will be $10! All proceeds will benefit the Abernathy Academic UIL program. Hope to see you there!
The Abernathy High School National Honor Society visited the elementary students to read to them this afternoon! This was a great example of going the Antelope Way!
The students construct an Ag Mechanics project and then try to sell it. Only the top twenty teams get to go to the auction. The competition is broken up in to several categories. First the project is judged for quality and safety which makes up 50% of the final score. Then the Ag sales team takes a written examination and tries to sell the product.
This year Abernathy FFA constructed a large hay bale and ring feeder mover. 63 projects were entered into the completion, with only 30 getting through the sift. Of those 30 only 20 made it to the sale. We were very excited to be the 11th consignment. The project was constructed by Jonah Lopez, Jayton Grisham, Parker Redwine, Gus Diver (Gus was unable to attend because of an Area Championship basketball game). These four outstanding young men are exceptionally good welders.
The Ag Sales team is made up of Kalli DuBose, Khakhi Dubose, Kodi Dubose, and Michaela Taylor. The team was coached by Bill DuBose. The team chaperone, fashion coordinator, encourager, chauffeur, and basically every other activity you can think of was Jarah DuBose. We were extremely excited that all three sisters could be on one team before Kalli graduated. And to top it all off, placing 3rd at a state level contest was icing on the cake.
Also showing at San Antonio was Brett Barton, Noah Hernandez, Arty Lopez and Braden Kitchens. Abernathy FFA would like to thank everyone who had a part in our success – Wylie Manufacturing for donating the plates for the 3 point hitch and all the parents for their help
