National Agriculture Day 2019!
03/14/2019
In honor of National Agriculture Day, we're highlighting some of the agriculture programs in District 192. Although Farmington is growing into a sizable suburb, we have strong roots in agriculture and believe it's important to offer agriculture related learning opportunities to our students. While not every student, or even most students, will have spent time on a farm, teachers in District 192 want them to know that agriculture is an important part of their lives. “Agriculture is a part of everyday life whether you think about it or not, everything is produced through agriculture,” said Karli Savaloja who teaches Animal Science at Farmington High School.
