Today students wore Camouflage & Chapter T-Shrits.
Starting off the school day was an all school announcement that read:
Did you know that...The FFA is the largest youth organization with a membership comprised of more than 550,000 student members in grades 7 through 12 who belong to one of 7,500 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands? Support Agriculture and the National FFA Organization by participating in the dress up days this week. Wear your craziest tie tomorrow, and wear Blue & Gold, the colors of the FFA, on Friday in support of AG awareness and student leadership.
Today the chapter hosted its annual petting zoo. Elementary students came on over to meet & greet with a wide variety of animals. Before the students headed out to the petting area, they where given animal fact sheets and needed to go on a "scavenger hunt" of sorts. The students enjoyed petting the animals, as well as learning about them. After students visited the petting zoo, they where brought over to the tractor safety section. At the safety section, students learned the dangers of equipment and most importantly, how they can be safe around it. Overall the day was a huge success for the chapter! Students learned about various animals, the agriculture industry, and how to be safe around farm machinery. The day was full of nothing but smiles and enjoyment!
