As many of you are aware, vehicles are becoming less and less aware of the expectations while driving in the presence of a school bus, which has led to several accidents across the nation. With Illinois Central’s assistance, the district has added stop arm cameras and updated some of the fleet with dual stop arm features. Beginning this year, students who are being dropped and picked up on Route 116 will only be allowed to enter and exit the bus on the side of the road the door is facing. This means that students will no longer be crossing Route 116 in order to enter or exit the bus. While this may cause some minor adjustments and possibly some inconveniences it will improve the safety for everyone. As has been previously communicated, bus routes with drop off and pick up will be available Monday August 12th at the Back to School Open House and on skyward. Thank you for your understanding and support in keeping students safe on their route to and from school.

Harvest Team Member Sydney Ossman: "I chose to make made a Memory/ Sensory box, for people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and Dementia, to be donated to the “Forget Me Not” collection in the Farmington Area Public Library. This collection was started in memory of Harry Richard Vawter, who recently passed. Richard was the grandfather of my brother and sisters and ultimately was like a grandfather to me. He cared for his wife Patricia Vawter, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2008. The family has welcomed me, and three other care givers, into their home to take over the responsibility of caring for their loved one. This particular box is inspired by sewing with the hopes that for someone like Patricia, who was a seamstress, will stimulate memories by touching an item like a thimble or a spool thread." 2018-19 Harvest Team is sponsored by: Lozier Oil, Bank of Farmington, Joe and Emily Webel, Chad Johnson-Jim Maloof Realtor, Farmington Community Bank and Marilyn & Larry Gibbs.

October Staff Member of the Month is Mr. Bradley "Whit" Whitcomb. He received his Bachelor's Degree from Monmouth College and is currently working toward his Master's Degree in Mathematics from Illinois State University. He is currently in his 5th year of teaching math in Farmington. In addition to teaching, he has coached football and girls basketball for five years, and JH track for four years. He's really enjoyed my time here at Farmington, in the future would like to finish my Master's degree and begin offering dual-credit courses. If he hadn't become a teacher, he probably would have become a Country music singer. His favorite part about my time at Farmington is the relationships he's built with the students. "I'm very blessed to have found this place and call it home". Congratulations Mr. Whitcomb!
Hayden Bradt was selected as Farmington Central High School’s October Senior of the Month. Hayden is the son of Rhonda and David Bradt. He has one sister, Kynzie.

In addition to his extensive involvement in school, Hayden finds time to give back as he volunteers within the community. He worked with children at Camp Invention and the Special Olympics while assisting at the Scholastic Bowl and Biddy-Ball Tournaments. He will attend college in the fall and is planning to study Pre-med. Congratulations, Hayden!
