LEARNING TO DO, DOING TO LEARN. "Agriculture is our wisest pursuit, because it will in the end contribute most to real wealth, good morals and happiness."  This was said by Thomas Jefferson, Founding Father and third President of the United States. An entire week was devoted to supporting agricultural education and the role the National FFA Organization plays in the development of agriculture’s future leaders. FFA Week was celebrated from February 18th through the 25th.

The Valley Heights High School hosted the annual pancake feed in the Ag building on Thursday, February 23rd. FFA also participated where all the greenhands, freshmans, dye their hands green to represent their rank on Wednesday. They read books to the elementary kids on Thursday.

Every student could participate in FFA Spirit Week! The following dress up days were; Monday: No School! Tuesday: Chore Clothes. Wednesday: Anything But a Backpack. Thursday: FFA Shirts! Friday: Drive your tractor to school! When asked what she was most excited about for FFA week Josie Parker, Freshman, replied, “I couldn't wait to drive my pretty tractor to school.”
