Every year, the National FFA Organization celebrates agriculture & it has done for towns & communities through FFA week. It's a time to share what FFA is & the impact it has on members every day. FFA week was held on February 18 through February 21. This week gives students in all grades the chance to show their FFA pride.
Drive your tractor to school day is part of the nationwide FFA week. This year, six tractors were parked in Berthoud High School’s west parking lot in support of FFA & Drive your Tractor to school day.
“ I really enjoyed seeing all the Tractors in the parking lot. This town has such a strong farming community & I love that the school lets the students take part in agriculture-related events,” said a high school student, who wished to keep their name anonymous.
Overall, FFA week was a success. Many students participated in the events throughout the week & were able to inform other students as well as staff, about agriculture & the impact it has on Berthoud’s community.
