National FFA Week

The Garden County FFA Chapter will celebrate National FFA Week, Feb. 19-22, 2019. This FFA Week embraces more than 91 years of FFA traditions while looking forward to the organization’s future. Nearly 670,000 members will participate in National FFA Week activities at local, state and national levels. These members have a passion for agriculture.

Designated a national week in 1947, the week of George Washington’s birthday, National FFA Week runs from Saturday to Saturday and gives FFA members an opportunity to educate the public about agriculture. During the week, chapters conduct a variety of activities to help others in their school and community learn about FFA and agricultural education.

Today’s FFA members are the innovators and leaders of tomorrow. Through agricultural and hands-on learning, they are preparing for more than 250 unique career opportunities in the food, fiber, and natural resources industry.

 

The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 669,989 student members who belong to one of 8,630 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The organization is also supported by 459,514 alumni members in 2,236 alumni chapters throughout the U.S.

The Garden County FFA Chapter invites you to join us during National FFA Week to celebrate FFA and show your support of agricultural education and the future of agriculture. This week—and every week—we recognize the impact our members and supporters have on our chapters, communities, and agriculture. By doing just one positive thing, each and every one of us can make a difference.

Off The Page with Mr. Assmann

This week the Garden County 8th grade participated in their 3rd Off-the-Page lesson of the year. In order to stay in track with the class's theme of "Agriculture on the Great Plains", the lesson was titled "Cowboy Culture". We were extremely fortunate to have Mr. Timothy Nolting come and present a lesson on the history of cowboys in America. Mr. Nolting has published several books on the history of our region and is a well-read historian. During the lesson, students learned about how the first cowboys got started down in Texas, the Longhorns they roped and trailed, and they got the chance to see many primary sources from the time period.
After the presentation, students broke into 3 groups and everyone got a chance to try their hand at some cowboy skills. Students rotated between stations of leatherworking, roping, and cowboy poetry. In addition to poet Tim Nolting, students benefited from the help of roper Terrel Vineyard, and leatherworker Doug Leopold who coached kids in their sessions. Each station provided its own challenges, and hopefully gave students a better feel for these aspects of traditional cowboy culture. All in all, it was a great morning and with any luck, students should have a better appreciation for our unique local history.

On Friday, September 14th, all 8th graders were trained in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). According to the American Heart Association, "CPR, if administered immediately after cardiac arrest can double or triple a person's chance of survival. About 90 percent of people who experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest die." 8th Civics students are participating in activities throughout the year that encourages engagement with the community and to become more involved citizens.
