Kayla Kutzke, a junior at ACGC was part of the St. Paul Minnesota FFA Agricultural Policy Experience this January. This was where students were expected to go beyond their agricultural knowledge and strive to be a leader in their school and the surrounding community. Kayla also also had the chance to hear from leaders in the agricultural field. These people included Commissioner of Agriculture Dave Frederickson, Minnesota House members, and Senate members.

The Wrestling team had their Conference tournament this past weekend. It was an individual wrestling tournament, which means you wrestle for the team but at the same time you wrestle for yourself. The ACGC team took 2nd, but since we beat all of the teams in the conference in dual meets we won our conference!
Dance Team WCC Conference Meet
The dance team had their conference meet on Thursday, January 22nd, 2015. There were a total of four jazz teams and six high kick teams. All of the teams are scored on different areas of their routine. Each judge scores each team on a scale of 1 to 10. The judges then place all of the teams in order of what they believe they placed. Once the ranking scores are all figured out the dancers then line up in alphabetical order on the gym floor.
Awards are then given out to the conference champs. The 2015 Conference Champions in Jazz was BOLD. The Jazz runner-up was YME. In the High Kick division YME was the 2015 Conference Champions. The runner-up in High Kick was Montevideo.

Today was boring I have all new classes and none of the teachers assigned any homework. I have some of my friends in some of my classes but not all of them and it gets boring without them. It is stressful because I don’t have an ipad and some of my classes need technology to do the work and I can’t do the work unless they print off the work for me. I have some classes that I know are going to be hard and some I know will be easy but I just need to keep my head up and think positive.
Well the second semester has just started, so everyone is getting into the rhythm of going to new classes. Some classes are good and some are bad. With the second semester just starting it means that half the year is over and for the seniors it means one more semester and then we are out of here!
The ACGC Senior Class Field trip started on a cold Wednesday, November 19th. They were headed for Minneapolis to explore downtown Minneapolis, Macy’s and the Guthrie Theatre. It was a great day with many wonderful, new sights and experiences. Here are some of their comments and photos.
The best part of my day was being able to explore a new part of life and of the city. I met some new people who were very friendly, ate beautiful food and I was well entertained by the play at the Guthrie. The performers in the play did a wonderful job and I enjoyed all of the detailed features, background music, the lighting and all the work involved was definitely appreciated. The best senior field trip ever! – Cassie Augustin
