Cloverland Students Enjoy Hands-On Ag Learning

It may have been a rainy day on Friday, but that didn't stop the presenters from turning out and the kids from taking it all in as Cloverland Elementary hosted its Ag Day. Kids got to meet and greet some animals, learn about horseshoeing, try their hand at dummy roping and more. Plenty of pop-ups were in evidence, as the students and presenters tried to stay dry. Here are a few photos from the soggy, yet successful, event.

Things may seem a little fishy with Oakdale Joint Unified fourth graders these days, as teacher Krista Smith has begun making her migration to the varying school sites. Smith's migration, however, doesn't come by way of a fish snack cracker or a classroom pet, the salmon teacher spends two days of lecture time teaching the students about Chinook Salmon.
