Students from Trinity High Schools vocational-agricultural program pick pumpkins on a farm owned by Donald Snoke, assistant to the superintendent.
Were bringing it back because our kids have a great need for it, said Donald Snoke, assistant to the superintendent.
The school board recently approved the construction and placement of a 20-foot by 30-foot greenhouse on the high school campus, which Snoke
believes will be a key component of the program, enabling it to become self-sufficient.
said students can grow and sell plants like poinsettias and pumpkins seasonally, raising money for other projects.
It will be horticulture in its truest sense, said Snoke
In the summer, Snoke
planted between 4,000 and 5,000 pumpkin seeds on his
West Middletown farm, and in October, vo-ag students, along with students from the high school life skills class picked and sold the pumpkins.
Because of a blight, however, only about 400 to 500 pumpkins grew.
Next year, Snoke
said the vo-ag class will plant pumpkins and sunflowers.

is "agreeable," Snoke
"We are examining as many options as we can," he
...Tentatively, Snoke will return to the high school principal's position, while Trinity East Elementary School Principal Yvonne Beverina Weaver is interviewing for the assistant superintendent position.

In another matter, Donald Snoke, assistant to the superintendent, told the board the district is exploring a partnership agreement with Washington & Jefferson College to broadcast district events on the college's radio station.
Under the agreement, the college would provide Trinity with its state-of-the-art broadcasting equipment, which would be housed in the school district, for a one-time fee of $1,500.
The school district could then air scholastic and athletic events, using students as broadcasters. Snoke
said the agreement would give Trinity the opportunity to develop a media program for students interested in communications.
