High School Celebrates FFA Week

The FFA members and advisors across the country celebrated FFA Week on February 18-22. At the Leigh and Clarkson schools, each day of the week had a different theme or event.

 

“FFA Week is a great opportunity for all, members and non-members, to get involved with the organization. All the activities are aimed toward a positive and fun experience for students and to hopefully get kids more involved. Overall, FFA week was a big success!” says Leigh-Clarkson Chapter Vice President Logan Beecher.

 

To start off the week, little pieces of paper with FFA logos were hidden around the entire school for all students to find and give to Mrs. Brandy Held for a prize.

 

On Tuesday, the FFA members all were their FFA t-shirt to show their FFA spirit.

 

School was cancelled on Wednesday, but planned for that day, students would have been able to drive an alternate vehicle like a four-wheeler to school.

 

Thursday was everybody’s favorite day, Donut Day. In the morning before school, students gathered in the cafeteria and enjoyed some juice or a donut or two form the Clarkson Bakery.

 

To test everyone’s knowledge about FFA and agriculture, the entire school gathered in the gym after lunch and played a Kahoot game. Students split up into their teams to earn points for the team competition that is participated in throughout the school year.

 

The FFA also sponsored a food drive throughout the week to support the Columbus Food Pantry.  Over 100 non-perishable food items were collected.

 

FFA Week was a very fun-filled week that gives the entire school a chance to learn about FFA.

 

FFA Week is a week I look forward to each year,” FFA Advisor Mrs. Brandy Held said.  “This year was a little more challenging than others since we had a snow day in the middle of the week.  I was excited to see so many students look for FFA logos on Monday and get excited for the Ag Kahoot on Friday.  We rounded out the week’s activities with a food drive at school for the Columbus Food Pantry.  I would like to thank all the individuals and businesses who support our organization throughout the year.  Without you we wouldn't be a success.”
