This is National FFA Week.
FFA Chapters in Mulberry Grove and Greenville kicked off the week Sunday by attending the Greenville First Christian Church as a group. Sunday afternoon some members of the Greenville FFA Chapter attended the U of I basketball game.
There was no school Monday due to the President’s Day holiday, but students have a full slate of activities for the rest of the week.

Thursday is Blue & Gold Day and students will serve teachers their annual appreciation meal. Friday is Flannel Dress Day and students will host a petting zoo.
