Cedar Key FFA put on their 2011-2012 awards banquet, with help of all of the officers of advisor Denny Voyles. The evening began with dinner in the Cafeteria, catered by Ada Blue Cafe. The menu consisted of baked beans, coleslaw, pork sandwiches, and a series of deserts. After dinner, everyone ventured to the auditorium for the awards ceremony.
The members were awarded for their accomplishments and the guests thanked for all of their help. Next, Mikayla Pope and Sarah Bartholemy performed their FFA rap that was "full of spunk and creativity" as Taryn Epperson said. The banquet proceeded with officer speeches, a slideshow of the year`s memories, and then concluded with closing ceremonies.

It`s finally the end of the year and students are ready to forget about school for the next few months.
However, the only thing in their way is final exams. As students cram, teachers pack up their belongings and put finishing touches on the big tests.
Monday and Tuesday will be the last full days before testing begins.
The last period on Tuesday will hold the 7th period exam, then on Wednesday the 1st and 2nd period exams will be held, on Thursday 3rd and 4th period exams will be held, then on Friday 5th and 6th period exams will be taken.
Students who are exempt from their final exams do not have to come in for that period or that day.
Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday students will be getting out of class at 12:00.
