The week of February 18-24 was National FFA Week.
The Pea Ridge FFA Chapter spent the week showing the school what FFA is and how much fun you can have in it! As we didn't have school on Monday, we decided to start on Tuesday. On that day, the FFA officers made cherry pies and passed them out to all of the high school faculty. The cherry pies are in remembrance of Presidents day and how George Washington cut down the cherry tree in his backyard. We passed out the pies as a thank you to the teachers for everything they have done.
Wednesday, we had hat day. Any one who paid a dollar to support the Pea Ridge FFA in our upcoming trip to State Convention, would get to wear their hat all day at school.
For Thursday, the officer team took a trip to the Middle School where we talked to the seventh- and eighth-grade students about how they can join our Agriculture classes along with FFA. We discussed the two different pathways they can take in Ag, and also all the fun things from building in the shop to out-of-state trips.
On Friday, the officer team went out with a bang! Starting bright and early at 5:30 a.m., the team met at the school to cook breakfast for the faculty. We had eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, and much more. The faculty was welcome to a hot and fresh all you can eat breakfast before they started their Friday morning, as a thank you from the Pea Ridge FFA Chapter.Editorial on 02/28/2018
