Today students wore plaid and concert T-Shirts.
Starting off the school day was an all school announcement that read:
This week is National FFA Week. The FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of the members by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. Today’s FFA members are tomorrow’s leaders of America’s number-one industry, agriculture. Help celebrate this week by participating in the fun and crazy dress up days. Wednesday is Camouflage, Thursday is insane crazy tie day, and Friday are the colors of the FFA. National Blue, and Corn Gold. Did you also know that an acre of land is roughly the size of a football field? On that one acre, a farmer can produce 24,000 heads of lettuce, 45,000 pounds of strawberries, 36,000 pounds of potatoes,14,000 pounds of sweetcorn, and 1,239 pounds of cotton? Thank a farmer!
Also held today was an all school assembly for Somonauk High school during their advisory period. The assembly consisted of multipal videos about agriculture, and FFA legacies. There was also a video shown show casing CDE results in the past year. Austin Granby, Section 7 President, gave a keynote about the importance of taking the opportunites you get. Don't let them slide on by, take them on and grow their potential. Soon after, students and teachers where invited to come on down to the gym floor and participate in various games and activities. Overall the assembly was a huge success to the chapter. Agricultural and FFA Awareness was spread, and it seemed that everyone took away a better understanding for the Agricultural Industry, and the National FFA Organization.
