Ag Olympics on schedule Friday

The agriculture department is celebrating National FFA week.  To help celebrate, the department is having dress up days for each day of the week and having Agriculture Olympics event on Friday, February 24.  

Amy Tuell, a seventh grade teacher, is using her class time to take her class to participate in this.  

”The main purpose of the AG Olympics is to get students interested in the agriculture department,” said Tuell.  

At the event on Friday  students will be participating in five different events. Ag students will be on hand to help students play tag find, lasso, pie eating, egg race and nail drive.  After the events, they will have professionals come in and speak to the students about the different parts of agriculture and the different types of jobs they can do.  

Anyone who is interested in FFA should go see the guidance counselor and see if they can get these classes into their schedule for next school year.
