On Sunday February 19, 2017, the Cashton FFA held its annual Pancake Breakfast to kick-off FFA Week. Serving started at 7:00 a.m. and continued until 11:30 a.m. Overall, more than 200 people were served. The Cashton FFA would like to thank all of the community members who came out to support them. They would also like to thank Pasture Pride and Von Ruden’s Meats for donating parts of the meal.
FFA week was capped off this year with a visit from the National FFA President Taylor McNeel. Check out the story on WKBT.
The Cashton FFA hosted its annual FFA week Brat Sale on Thursday of FFA week. FFA members grilled hamburgers and bratwurst for middle school and high school lunches. The Brat Sale is a fundraiser for the week’s activities and is the end result of the Food Products and Processing class’s brat processing unit. During the sale the student body was given tickets to vote for teachers to kiss the mystery animal, a middle school student to wear a pig costume, and two high school students to be the farmer and cow of FFA Week. This year’s nominees for the kiss the mystery animal were Mr. Hanley, Mr. Kohl, Mr. Jackson, Mr. Zellner, and Mrs. VonRuden. Middle school student nominees for the pig costume were Paige H., Logan P., Phillip B., Bonita H., Kenny L., and Alannah K. The high school student nominees for farmer and cow of FFA Week were Kiana E., Nick L., Taylor F., Ben W., Bre H., Brandon K., Alyssa V., and Donnivan H.
The winner of the pig costume is Phillip B.
The winners of the FFA Week Farmer and Cow are Ben W. (farmer) and Nick L. (Cow).
The teacher selected to kiss the mystery animal will be revealed at the FFA assembly on Friday.
On Wednesday, the third day of FFA week, students at Cashton High School were hidden in plain sight. They dressed up in camouflage, blaze orange, and blaze pink. They also participated in the lunch time activity, which was inflation toss. A boy and girl representative from each class had a chance to try to get 5 milking inflations into a milk crate. During the middle school lunch, the 8th grade students won. In the high school contest, the Freshmen won after tying with the sophomores. Thursday’s dress up day is favorite tractor day. There is no lunch time activity; however, there will be a brat and burger sale. When students purchase a meal, they will get tickets to vote for kiss the mystery animal (teachers), cow and farmer costume (High School), and the pig costume (Middle School).
To add to the celebration of FFA week, the third graders participating in the PALS program learned about FFA Official Dress, some FFA trivia, and colored in the FFA emblem. Students were asked to assemble a paper doll with FFA Official Dress. Students learned about the significance of the FFA jacket as well as the rules that are followed when an FFA member wears an FFA jacket proudly. Third graders answered a few questions about how they can live out the FFA mission and participate in future local FFA activities by playing an FFA trivia game. These future members were excited to learn about the FFA organization.
On the second day of FFA week in 2016 students were seeing double. Students dressed up as twins to celebrate the week. During lunch, students in middle school and high school competed in a cheese tasting contest. Middle school students identified five different cheeses, muenster, mozzarella, cheddar, colby, and swiss. Meanwhile, high school students had to identify seven cheeses muenster, mozzarella, cheddar, colby, swiss, cream and provolone. Students that successfully identified the most cheeses were awarded FFA bucks to use at the Cashton FFA Casino night held at the end of FFA Week.
