The business department has been playing around with our new CTE department vinyl cutter. This flag was made by the agriculture department and sold at the craft fair to Superintendent Fox...but, she requested we add the school song to it. Business student Sarah Winter designed, cut, and placed the vinyl on it. Look for more fun projects like this in the future!
