During the week of February 21st- 24th the FFA club and Agricultural classes at Lathrop High school planned a week of AG festivities for students and staff members on campus.LHS FFA 2

Beginning with Tuesday, the FFA students hid pieces of the national FFA emblem all around the campus in order for students to scavenger hunt around campus, piecing the emblem together. On Wednesday, the teachers battled against each other in a Corn Hole competition which brought many teachers and students together during both lunches. On Thursday, the club set up an inflatable obstacle course for students to run through and on Friday, FFA coordinated a live petting zoo filled with various farm animals.

LHS FFA 3“Kiss the Pig” also took place all week. The club distributed piggy banks to all staff members, in efforts to see which piggy bank could collect the most money, all donated by students. At the end of the week, the staff member who collected the most money had to kiss a live pig.

Fact posters had been placed all over campus, informing students about the agricultural life style.LHS FFA 4
