What's new With Elk Grove FFA?
Welcome back Elk Grove FFA!!!
While school was out, FFA was in making wedding flowers, training and raising animals and canning food to exhibit at the California State Fair, training the new officer team, having farm clean-ups, and scrapbooking to prepare for the new year.
Congratulations to sophomore Andrew Feist for his Grand Champion market turkey which sold in the Sale of Champions at the California State Fair. Congratulations also to Janae Hadden for her Best of Show win in the California Kidz Kitchen for her Tomato Basil Jam (yum).
The year was kicked off with our annual Greenhand Gateway which featured over 50 of our greenhands getting to the agriculture department. That event was followed by the summer BBQ at the farm where we were able to re-connect after summer and enjoy some good food.
Parents, please go to back to school night on your students' behalf, your attendance gets them an activity point in their agriculture class. Speaking of activity points, earn one by going and helping at volunteer farm clean up on August 29th from 3:30-5:00 pm.
Coming up will be the first FFA meeting of the year at 6 pm in the cafteria on September 10th! Hope to see you there!
Till next time...................
