Logan Elm FFA Visits Local Elementary Schools For Education


ROSS – One of the main goals of the Logan Elm agricultural leadership class is the understanding of community service. Community service is an essential aspect of the well being of all towns, cities, and counties. So one place to start is the local elementary schools. These schools contain the next generation of leaders and volunteers to help strengthen our community.
The Leadership class took a day to visit Salt Creek Intermediate School and Laurelville Elementary. At Salt Creek, the class helped Mr. VanDette and his students better understand why birds migrate to the south every winter, and also got the chance to learn about FFA and what our goals are for students in the local community. Not only did the students learn about bird migration, but were able to build bird feeders out of pine cones and peanut butter, then roll it in bird seed to help fatten the birds up during their trip down south.
We also did similar activities at Laurelville, but this time the students were able to decorate their bird feeders using paint and bottles instead of the peanut butter because there was just not enough for 100+ students. We want to thank both the administration at Salt Creek and Laurelville for their wonderful hospitality and the chance to meet some very wonderful kids!
