Our Platte-Geddes Varsity Volleyball water girls. They were fortunate to be the water girls at State Volleyball this weekend! We are proud of our AWESOME water girls!
On Wednesday, a group of Platte-Geddes High School students attended a Scrubs Camp in Chamberlain. Scrubs Camp is destined to give hands on experience to students contemplating a career in healthcare. Students heard from a variety to healthcare professionals who discussed what they do and how they get into their professions. Students also had the chance to experience many hands-on activities throughout the day… all in an effort to build and sustain South Dakota’s future healthcare workforce!

Sweet Khloe DeGroot made a "Good News Call" this week for assisting one of our young students. Khloe noticed that one of our ½ Kindergarten students was feeling nervous about coming to school in his Halloween costume. She walked over to him and encouraged him to enter the playground with her. His Mom nominated Khloe for the "Good News Call" for the kindness she showed him in helping him have the courage to walk into school all dressed up for Halloween. Khloe, we appreciate the kindness you show to others, and we appreciate that you noticed someone who needed help and you helped him. We truly have the BEST kiddos! ❤️
The students in both Shop 1 and 2 have been working on their welding skills out at Trail-Eze Manufacturing. I would like to thank Trail-Eze for their partnership with the school, and for providing this fantastic opportunity and training for our students. The students have worked on welding butt joints, lap joints and tee joints. They have also learned the fine art of doing a triple weld. The students have been performing so well that Trail-Eze had them weld a storage rack for steel plate materials. Their weld beads are very good. This is what they are doing in the photos. Welding is something the students enjoy very much. -Mr. Daum
