The Carver Middle School FFA chapter celebrated National FFA Week Feb. 24-28, 2020. Throughout the week, students participated in dress-up days, including Camo Day, Hat Day, and Western Wednesday. FFA members held an appreciation breakfast on Tuesday for Carver faculty and staff as well as a daily “Are You Smarter than an FFA Member” challenge.
On Wednesday, FFA officers traveled to Harmony, Monroe, and Walker Park Elementary Schools to conduct an “Ag-tivity” with Pre-K students. Officers read a children’s book and planted seeds with the students. During the week, all students were able to participate in an FFA Trivia Challenge where the daily winner earned an awesome prize.
National FFA Week is celebrated around George Washington’s birthday, Feb. 22, because of Washington’s legacy as an agriculturist and farmer. Each year, FFA chapters around the United States celebrate National FFA Week. It is a time for chapter members to host group activities, conduct service projects, recruit new members, share agricultural information with others, advocate for agriculture, and show off their FFA pride.
