The Sleepy Eye FFA Chapter has completed another year of its Junior High Pen Pal Program. This program involved junior high FFA members of Sleepy Eye writing to and being pen pals with members of the Mountain Lake FFA. The Sleepy Eye members traveled to Mountain Lake on May 9.

The end of the year is a time to wrap up the Wee Deliver Program for FFA members with get-together events with third graders at both schools. (Pictured are St. Mary's students) The purpose of the program is to connect high school students with elementary students, by writing letters back and forth over the school year, in order to get to know each other better and to practice writing skills for the students.
