Onesies, Tractors, and Ice Cream Sundaes — just the annual FFA week

Cow and skunk onesies filled the halls of Scribner Snyder Community Schools during the yearly FFA week.

Many activities were held throughout the week, which was held between Feb. 18 – 23. Every day of the week was a different day. The first two days involved students dressing up.  Monday was “Merica” Monday, and the halls were filled with red, white and Blue. Tuesday was Tired Tuesday so many students came to school in their pajamas.

“I enjoy watching FFA members participate because the FFA chapter goes all out,” sophomore Emily Lewin said.

Wednesday was “Red vs. Green support your favorite tractor”. Though no one drove a tractor to school, students had a guessing activity called where they had to guess how many red and green skittles were in the jar?

“Evan Noel was the winner of the skittles,” FFA sponsor Mrs. Michelle Ryun said. “The actual number of skittles in the jar was 457.”

Students donned their “thinking hats” on Thursday for Thinking Thursday. In order to wear a hat without breaking school rules, students had to pay $1. All proceeds went to the Dominguez/Lass family. To end the day, the FFA members sponsored a snack attack, which consisted of brownie sundaes during 8th hour.

“Snack Attack,” Lewin said. “I’m going to attack the snack attack.”

Finally Friday was Freaky Friday and the FFA members overloaded the halls with Corn Gold and National Blue. The members were required to wear official dress to be able to participate in 8th period activity. During that time is when the members will play games and have a fun time.

“The days were decided by a committee who meets together to go through idea and it is difficult to work around everyone’s schedule to make meetings work” Ryun said.

On average 15 FFA students participated throughout the week, but many students and staff took part in the FFA activities.
