During COVID-19 Paulding FFA Members are “Living to Serve”

Since school has not been in session since mid- March that hasn’t stopped the Paulding FFA Chapter from helping to serve our members and help our community by focusing on the FFA Motto: Learning to Do, Do to Learn, Earning to Live and Living to Serve.  Our members decided to start the hygiene closet in March when school was shutdown. Through collaboration with the Paulding staff and administration, the Paulding FFA started its hygiene bags to help the many families in Paulding struggling due to COVID-19. Each week at Paulding and Oakwood a five day supply of meals is handed out to children age 1-18. In conjunction with the meals, the Panther’s care closet established by the Paulding FFA is having the Paulding Staff hand out hygiene kits to families who would like to receive them.



Living to ServePictured here are various Paulding staff members who are helping to sort the hygiene items to be disbursed. Everyone is helping to provide all we can for our students!


Living to ServePictured here are FFA members Hailey and Kyle Harris after they had assembled the hygiene kits for their mom Nicole, who works in the school cafeteria to take them to the school for the weekly distribution of meals and hygiene kits.

Thank you Class of 2020

FFA Week

 Last week, the Paulding FFA celebrated FFA week by having many events around the school. During this week, every day was a dress-up day. The Paulding FFA hosted their annual Country Olympics with the entire high school in attendance. The students competed in a wide variety of games and competitions with their house in order to be crowned the winning house. These games consisted of straw stacking, stick horse races, tug of war, cattle roping, musical chairs, and a milking contest. Finally, each house made their own line dance to perform at the end of all the other contests.

The house, Stupendum, ended up as the winner of the competition. Overall the students had a very fun day at the country Olympics and are very excited for next year!

During FFA week and the week before, students and staff brought in supplies for the Paulding FFA’s hygiene closet. This hygiene closet will be for elementary, middle and high school students who are not able to afford their own hygiene items, so will be able to get them from the hygiene closet whenever they are needed. The hygiene drive during the last two weeks provided a good jump start for the project, with students and staff donating more than 1,600 items total.

stresses all around them learn how to channel that stress so they can still be the teachers their students
need them to be. Using humor and life experiences, Mrs. Estle let more than sixty attendees know they
are not alone when they feel overwhelmed by life and there are things they can do to decompress. Mrs.
Estle has been an educator for thirty-five years. She will be greatly missed by Paulding Middle School

PHS Community Service Day at Black Swamp Nature Center


Paulding High School and Paulding Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) once again collaborated to hold a Community Service Workday at the Black Swamp Nature Center. Over 350 students in grades 9-12 from Paulding High School and their teachers braved the cool fall weather to make a big difference in their local community. This is the second community service day that has been done by the students.

No task was too big or small for the students as they completed many projects that they and their fellow community members can enjoy for many years to come. One of the most notable projects is the installation of a three-hole disc golf course throughout the grounds of the Black Swamp Nature Center. Students helped to prep everything for the installation of the disc golf holes from prepping holes for the bases to painting signs to mark the holes. This project was funded thanks to donations to the Friends of the Black Swamp Nature Center through the Paulding County Area Foundation.

Grant for Paulding 1 st Grade Agriculture Adventures Program

The Paulding Agriculture Education program receives a grant from the Paulding Area
Foundation for their new 1 st Grade Agriculture Adventures Program. High School students in the
livestock class are partnering with the 1 st grade students at Paulding Elementary to teach the
youth about livestock. This new program is called Ag Adventures and will focus on teaching the
students about livestock raised in Paulding County. This program will begin by talking to 1 st
graders about swine. The high school students would go down to the 1st-grade classrooms and
do a presentation, a fun activity and read the students a book about swine. This will allow our
high school students to interact with younger students and share their knowledge learned in
the classroom with them through hands-on activities. This program will align with the 1st-grade
science standards that focus on mammals, animal needs and their habitats. After the fun
activities and reading each 1st-grade student would receive their very own copy of the book to
take home and share their livestock knowledge with their families. The goal of this project is for
the elementary students to learn more about Paulding County’s agriculture and livestock industry
while enhancing their literacy through the gift of a book. Paulding Ag department is very
excited about this program and appreciate the support of the Paulding Area Foundation to help
our student advocate for agriculture and teach younger generations about the importance of

FFA Officers Attend Leadership Conference

On Thursday, January 23rd, 9 members of the Paulding FFA officer team attended the
annual FFA Leadership Summit at Huntington University. When they arrived they took a tour of
Huntington’s campus. Then they were first greeted by Mr. Nate Perry, coordinator of Ag
Operations at Huntington, who discussed his hopes for the future of agriculture and then the
schedule for the day. He then he pulled a current student and alumni member onto the stage
and they told of all the Huntington agriculture had done for them. Then two faculty members
came to the stage and talked about the new things that will be added to the agriculture program.
3 Indiana state officers then took all students to do leadership exercises. The leadership
exercises taught chapter officers to develop a stronger team working together to lead. Lastly,
they were spoken to by keynote speaker, Mrs. Beth Archer, Executive Director at Agri Institute.
She spoke about “Leading in an Age of Opportunity.” The officers learned a lot at the
Leadership Summit and are excited to attend again next year!

FFA Feeding Farmers Program

Throughout the month of October and the first half of November, the Paulding FFA chapter has
been feeding the farmers around Paulding county. The chapter first started doing this last year
and found that it was a good way to support local farmers and thank them for their countless
hours of work to feed our world. The students prepared meals in brown bags to give to the
farmers while they are working in the field and may not have time to run home to eat. These bags
contain items such as cookies, chips, applesauce, a water bottle, and pop. A note written by
students in the chapter was also included in the bag, thanking farmers for all they do. The FFA
members delivered over one hundred meals to farmers in Paulding County. Feeding our farmers
is one way we try and thank our farmers for feeding all of America. The Paulding FFA is very
excited to continue this project in the upcoming years and hopes that it can become bigger and
better each year!

    District Science Olympiad Competition

  Paulding Middle School brings home 1st Place! 

  Paulding High School brings home 3rd Place!


On Thursday, December 20th, a staff member received an email that was concerning. There was no threat to any student or staff member, but in these days of heightened awareness, we decided to lock outside doors to the building as a precaution as we called law enforcement to help evaluate the situation.   We did not expect anything to happen, but the safety of students and staff is always a priority. No student or staff member was in danger at any time yesterday. We are always looking for ways to improve safety and have already evaluated our procedures implemented yesterday. Drills are conducted throughout the school year to improve procedures. There is a fine line between under reacting and over reacting, but we will always take precautionary measures to protect the safety of students and staff.

Randall is survived by his mother and father, his wife Angie, and three young daughters. Please keep the Smith Family in your thoughts and prayers along with the four families of the marines who were also killed. God's grace to all of them for their service for our freedom!
