For a project in Ms. McMillan's Digital Information Technology class, students were asked to follow the steps of development and marketing to create a product or service to be sold to the public. Students had no limits on what their product or service could be and were to work under the idea that they had unlimited resources. For his project, Blaise Cottle (9th grade), developed the 27th letter. He explained that the point of his letter (pronounced "ei-SSSS") was to replace the "es" and "ies" at the end of plural words. Blaise shared his creative idea with the rest of his class and the seniors in Mrs. Hall's AP Literature class, giving them examples of how the new letter works and providing them with a visual aide of what the letter looks like. We are proud of Blaise and his excellence in innovation.

Since January of this year, three Paxton students have been working towards the Hog and Ham Competition in Gainesville (Hydie Varnum, Cassie Varnum, and Jeffrey Wilson). Students from all over the state participate in this event. Paxton students traveled to Gainesville three times this year. The first visit was the introduction of the program for students who had been selected to participate. The second visit was to butcher the hog and prepare it to be taken home. During their last visit a few weeks ago, the students presented their presentations on a subject related to the swine industry. Paxton's own, Jeffrey Wilson, placed 5th place overall in the competition. The entire Paxton family is very proud of these students. (Pictured: Hydie Varnum, Cassie Varnum, and Jeffrey Wilson).
