Ag in the Classroom

The Agriculture Business Management class has been working on Ag in the Classroom lessons for Armstrong-Ellis Grade School and Potomac Grade School. So far the class has taught the 7th & 8th graders about FFA and leadership. Thank you to the grade schools for allowing the students to come and teach their classes!

Section 18 Dodgeball Tournament

On October 30th, the Armstrong FFA hosted the Section 18 Dodgeball Tournament for the 2nd year in a row! Teams from Rantoul and BHRA joined the Armstrong FFA in eating pizza and competing in the dodgeball tournament. All the chapters had a great time! Thank you to those who came out!

Special thank you to Johnathan Lyon’s Photography for capturing the night!

Ag Sales CDE 2018

Last night, 3 students traveled to Paris, IL to compete in the Section 18 Ag Sales CDE. Unfortunately, we did not have a 4th person so our team was not complete, but that did not stop these kids from placing 6th out of 8 teams! I can only imagine how well they would have done if they had that last team member. Special congratulations to Makayla Learned for placing in the top 10 students (8th) out of the 24 that competed.

Great job Armstrong FFA!

FFA Bonfire 2018

The students enjoyed a great bonfire and snacks for the annual FFA bonfire. They had a great night!

National Convention 2018

The Armstrong FFA attended the 91st National FFA Convention. There, the students attended sessions, listened to motivational speakers, heard from industry leaders, learned about different successful chapters from across the country, met FFA members from all over the country, see Garth Brooks live, attended a rodeo and worked together as a team to escape from a room! The students and Miss Foran had a blast and learned a lot.

Chapter Meeting 11/17

The Armstrong FFA had a chapter meeting at the high school where the officer team discussed upcoming events and competitions. The students enjoyed pizza and games!
