The PHS Theatre Department is presenting the always fun children's play, Doctor Dolittle, this weekend in the PHS Auditorium. Shows are Friday, November 2nd, at 6:30 p.m., Saturday, November 3rd, at 2:00 p.m. and at 6:30 p.m., and Sunday, November 4th, at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $3.00 for anyone 12 and under and $4.00 for everyone else.

The children's show is a highlight of the theatre program at PHS and is an annual event that was started back in 1979. Over 130 students are involved in the show and so there are actually two casts. The Red cast and crew will perform on Friday night and Saturday afternoon and the White cast and crew will perform on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. Also, don't forget that Daylight Savings Time ends early Sunday so be sure to set your clocks when you go to bed on Saturday night.

An elite group of Plymouth FFA members recently attended the 85th National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana held October 24-27, 2012. Earlier this summer, Plymouth FFA was named a “Big 10 Chapter” in Indiana and a Model of Innovation Winner for their community service efforts. This honor advanced the Plymouth FFA on to compete at the national level where they were recently named a 3-Star Chapter - the highest rank/honor an FFA chapter can receive. There are over 7,400 FFA Chapters across the United States. 660 chapters were selected to compete on the national level, 314 were named 3-Star Chapters.
The Plymouth FFA was recognized for their significant accomplishments at the 85th National FFA Convention. Members representing the chapter at National Convention were: Makayla Depoy, Sarah Lindvall, Lilly Bottorff, Katelyn Hollar, Lauren Goddard, Kara Gustafson, Taylor Shively, and Megan Snyder. While attending convention, chapter president, Makayla Depoy and chapter advisor, Kelli Kreider attended an invitation only dinner held in honor of National 3-Star Chapters. Along with Depoy and Kreider, chapter officers, Sarah Lindvall (Vice president), Katelyn Hollar (Secretary), and Lilly Bottorff (Treasurer) were photographed for an official National Chapter photo. Televised live on RFD-TV, Depoy and Lindvall accepted the national award on stage at convention on Thursday October 25th.
PHS FFA members were able to take advantage of meeting with multiple agricultural business leaders and visit with potential colleges. Members also heard from Olympic Gold Medalist, Scott Hamilton as he shared his inspiring life story. After returning to Plymouth late Thursday, October 25th, FFA sponsor, Kreider , went back to convention October 26th and 27th with PHS FFA alumni, Katelynn Penny. Katelynn received her American FFA Degree Saturday October 27th.
“The Plymouth FFA Chapter was honored to bring home two of the most highly respected and sought after awards- A National 3-Star Award and an “American Degree,” says Kreider. “I could not be more proud of our chapter accomplishments this past year. The members traveling to convention have served as true examples of premier leadership and personal growth.”
