Tractor Day

Due to snow moving in last week the final day of FFA week was Wednesday. Wednesday was voted on to be tractor day. Rich Hill FFA Chapter members were to drive their tractors to school if their family owned one. If the students didn’t have one then they could wear a tractor shirt as an alternative.

Snow Days!

What do you do on snow days? Sleep till noon? Playing video games all day, eat, watch tv? Jackson Duncan was asked what he does on a snow day. He replied with a very interesting answer. He said, “I sometimes run outside and play in the snow unless it is ice, like it was this last time. I did not realize and I slipped and fell right on my side. Also, I make videos for myYoutube Channel the “PublicSeaLion”.”

Want to see one of the videos he made? Click on the link below, it is pretty funny!

Mr. Rotert the Principal of the High School was also asked what he does on a snow day. He said he plays in the snow with his boys. One is 6 and the other one is 2, he said it is always fun to play in the snow with them. They build little snow men and the boys run them over with their Tonka trucks. They also ride on the four wheeler and go sledding. Also, they have a an ocassional snow ball fight. Then they all come in and have hot chocolate with marshmellows!

FFA Sunday

FFA week started Sunday February 17th with the Rich Hill FFA having their FFA Sunday. Every year the chapter votes on a church to attend, a place to eat, and a movie to go see afterwards. This year the chapter voted to go to the Rich Hill First Baptist Church. The chapter arrived for church at 10:45 a.m. The service ended around 12.

After the service Trent Nelson had agreed to open up his BBQ restaurant just for the FFA to eat. The movie the chapter voted to see was Safe Haven. The movie however didn’t start until 4 p.m. so the students had some time to waste until the bus left at 3:45. The boys were not too excited to see the movie but afterwards they all agreed the movie wasn’t that bad. All in all the chapter had a good time and will hope to have an even better FFA Sunday next year.

*Special thanks to the Rich Hill First Baptist Church and Trent Nelson.
