Ansonia FFA Celebrates FFA Week

The National FFA Week was February 19th through 23rd. This week is a very busy time for all FFA members. During this week the officers had many different activities planned that all members could participate in. Each day of the week there was a specified dress up day to show their support of the chapter. The dress up days were as follows: Monday- none (no school), Tuesday- camo day, Wednesday- hat day, Thursday- flannel day, Friday FFA t-shirt day. Throughout the week, students showed their FFA pride by dressing up.

To kick off FFA week on Monday, any member who sold over $300 in the Winter fruit sale got the opportunity to get a free breakfast at Bob Evans with the officer team. This was a great way to reward the active members for their hard work and dedication in FFA.

Starting on Tuesday, the students were able to stall their classes in the ever famous “penny stall”. The kids would buy pennies in the ag shop or bring them in for their teachers to count out and stall their class time.

On Thursday, all of the FFA officers made their annual staff breakfast meal. They worked for hours preparing the delicious food for all of the dedicated staff members at the school. The officers made pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage patties and links, fruit salad, and hashbrown casserole. The staff always looks forward to this event every year during FFA week.

Another activity that the officer team had planned was the anual Jr. High AG Olympics. Each grade elected 6 representatives to participate in the competitive relay race. The participants would each have a specified event they would complete before tapping the hand of the next person. All of the kids had to work together as a team to finish the entire relay race and beat the other teams they were competing against. Some of the activities they were asked to do were shucking corn, pedal tractor races, putting a drill together, and untangling and wrapping an extension cord. As another part of AG olympics, the kids elect 1 boy and 1 girl from each grade and also 1 female and male teacher to kiss the pig. A pig is brought in from a farm and each elected person would have the chance to kiss it.

On Friday, we held the “Tractor Cade”. Some of the FFA members were able to drive their tractors to school and display them for the duration of the school day.

FFA week this year was a big success and all of the officer’s hard work paid off! Thank you to everyone who participated in dress up days and events.
