FFA Week

This past week the Hay Springs FFA Chapter celebrated National FFA week. Throughout the week, students dressed up, played games, and learned about FFA. This is a great chance for the younger kids to learn about FFA and the opportunities it provides. On Tuesday, students dressed up in their Hawaiian gear, on Wednesday students wore their blue and gold clothes and the high schoolers drove anything but their normal vehicles to school and finally on Thursday students wore the color that corresponded with their favorite truck(Ford-Red, Chevy-Blue, Dodge-Black) and the elementary got to participate in an agricultural Kahoot. During the week the elementary held a coloring contest and the winners will be announced next week and earn a king size candy bar. This was a great week for all the students to learn more about agriculture and see the opportunities provided.
