Mrs. Hammerly visited Sophie and Elizabeth V. last Saturday on their 1000+ acre farm. Their family raises beef and dairy cattle, sheep, chickens, ducks, a donkey, and a horse, along with several cats and dogs. The girls love taking care of the animals on their farm especially when they are young and need the extra attention and care. This summer they are busy raising the 15 chickens that will be brought to school and put in the Iowa-Grant FFA Chicken Coop. Keep up the great work, ladies!

Lara Hammerly, the agricultural educator at Iowa-Grant High School, has been honored with the Section 4 Teacher Turn the Key Award from the Wisconsin Association of Agricultural Educators (WAAE). Hammerly was presented this honor at the WAAE Professional Development Conference held in La Crosse, Wis. from June 27-30, 2021. The Teacher Turn the Key Award is given to an agricultural educator in their first years of teaching. Its goal is to encourage early-career agricultural educators to become involved with their professional association on a national level. WAAE is the professional association for agricultural educators in Wisconsin. Members include 410 middle school, high school, technical college and university educators. The focus of the association is to provide professional development, legislative support and educational resources for teachers to enhance their local agriculture education programs.

This week Mrs. Hammerly visited the 2021-2022 Iowa-Grant FFA Chapter President, Bekka S., on her farm. Bekka lives on a 10 acre farm which is filled with mostly horses and cattle. She is very active on her family farm by helping with chores morning and night. Her family feeds and cares for 250 head of cattle during the fall, winter, and spring months. They also have horses that they use for rodeo along with puppies, goats, ponies, and donkeys.
Mrs. Hammerly got to meet Charles S. during his farm visit. Charles will be a Freshman in the Fall and is looking forward to Ag Classes and joining the Iowa-Grant FFA Chapter. The Straka Family Farm raises hens, meat chickens (summer only) and beef. They are licensed to sell their eggs and beef off the farm and their chickens on the farm. They process their own chickens each summer for their own needs and sell to selected buyers. Their laying hens are pasture raised, and the meat chickens are raised in open air. Their beef are born and raised on the farm without any use of hormone implants, antibiotics or medicated feed. They also have two large gardens for their fresh and preservation needs. They sell extra produce at the farmers market in Platteville!

Let's go camping and have s'more fun! This week during summer school we did just that. We pitched a tent (without the teachers help!), made smores, made a tent out of food, read camping stories, painted with mud, and went on a nature scavenger hunt. It was fun week!
