On Friday, February 14, Winnett was presented with the Academic Excellence Award from MHSA/Northwestern Energy. Winnett high school students who participated in sports, music, and/or cheerleading had their GPA calculated. Their cumulative GPA of 3.755 was the highest among Class C schools, and second in all class rankings. We were also one of the only schools who had 100% of our students participate in at least one MHSA activity. Congratulations Winnett School. We are all proud of you!

Flatwillow Homemakers will be meeting on March 10. Linda Gershmel is hosting, but it will be held in the apartments’ rec room. Everything else will remain the same, just the location.

High school basketball has finished up their season. Congratulations to our teams and pep band for a successful winter sports season. High school track will be starting up March 9.

March seems to be coming in like a lion with all the high winds we’ve had and then snow this morning. Hopefully, that means it will go out like a lamb. Calving and spring work are moving forward. We just worked our cows yesterday in preparation for calving. We had 60 degrees and a wind, but it wasn’t bad. This morning it was 40 and snowing. Springtime in Montana can be a challenge. Our fist calf this calving season was born this morning, so I guess we are now calving. Hope everyone has a successful calving/lambing season and still manages to get in irrigating, farming, planting, and everything else that goes along with spring work.

See you next time.
