Ag Day 2018, the sequel to last year's first-ever event, was once again well-received by a school community eager to learn more about the area's rich agricultural heritage. Ag Day is organized by High School Ecology students, under the direction of teacher Ms. Kristen Vitkauskas, and provides K-4 students a walking tour of agriculture-themed learning stations positioned throughout the campus. This year's stations included tours of the aquaponics and raised bed garden projects underway in the High School Ecology classes, petting zoos, facepainting, and ag art displays, Community members also lent a hand with Justin Sivak showing students how to milk a cow, the Vastine’s of Spruce Run Farms who taught students about plowing with draft horses, Gibs Farm operated by Dave and Gibby Knoebel teaching lessons about nature and agriculture, and Mark Rohrbach adding his corn planter to the popular farm equipment display. The students were also treated to hayrides by Seidel’s Hay Rides, fresh popcorn from Knoebels, cookies baked by Family and Consumer Science students, and Angus beef sliders prepared by Big Dan’s Barbeque (Dan and Denise Bosworth) of Rohrbach's.  Ealier in the day the beef sliders were served to all District students as part of Southern Columbia Area's Fresh Food of the Month initiative. Rohrbach's beef is Beef Quality Assurance Certified and is all natural, grain and grass fed, with no hormones.
