The Paxton School seventh- and eighth-graders recently held an “I mustache you a question” day.

Hydie Varnum, Cassie Varnum and Jeffrey Wilson participated in Florida’s 4-H Hog and Ham Program in Gainesville. The program began in January, and takes the students through the entire pork production process.
