On Thursday September 19th, FFA members helped the ISU Extension with Farm Safety Day which was held at the ISU Allee Farm for area third graders. Newell Fonda FFA members assisted with teaching three sessions. Animal Safety was taught by Lexi Roberts and Paige Roberts. No Horsing Around was taught by Beth Greenfield and Kylie Robinson. Chemical Safety was taught by Camie Clark and Kylee Kennedy. All of these sessions were interactive allowing students to relate new safety knowledge to things they have seen or done. FFA members also assisted the the days activities by being guides for classes and monitoring lunch activities.
