Garden County School Song
Cheer Cheer for Garden County High,
Wake up the echoes don't let them die.
Send our cheers both far and wide,
We've got the best players on our side.
We're never down, we never say die
Send our colors way up on high
As our loyal team goes marching
Onward to Victory!

STEM Club Families,

Students can launch their rockets this Thursday, December 1st if they are able to stay after.  Otherwise, we hope to do a final launch on December 6th, our next STEM Club meeting.  If you have any questions, please call Sarah or Shelly at the extension office at 772-3311.

We also want to let you know that we will be displaying the rockets at the Music Program being held on Tuesday, December 13th.  Please come a little early to watch their videos and see what they have been working on all semester.. We understand if they need to go home to get ready for the program so there will be no formal meeting that night.  Students can stay after for 20-30 minutes to make sure their rocket is ready to show off but are not required to be there. We will be there getting ready regardless. 

Finally, after the Music Program on the 13th, we will be taking our winter break from STEM Club.  We will start back up on January 10th with our robotics unit! 

If you have any questions, please contact us directly at the Extension Office at 308-772-3311. 

Happy Holidays,

Sarah Paisley and Shelly Altena

American History Class
Posted on 11/07/2016
The Garden County American History class recently took a field trip in order to explore the Museum of the Fur Trade and Fort Robinson State Park. Both locations are great resources when learning about the settlement of The West. The Museum of the Fur Trade is deemed the world's leading museum in regards to the fur trade of the mountain man era. The museum's historian James Hanson is deemed an authority on the subject and was the historical consultant for the Hollywood picture The Revenant. Fort Robinson was the sight of numerous events regarding Native American history as well as World War events. Head custodian Rick Reece offered the students a great deal of information on the fort. Rick grew up near the fort and knows it well. All in all the day was enjoyable, educational, and a great way to learn about history!  more
