On Thursday, October 5th, our 2nd Grade traveled to the Farm Show Building in Harrisburg to attend the annual Farm City Day. While there, our students had the opportunity to meet our very own 2017 Gratz Fair Queen, Khristyn Maurer.
"Farm City Day is a unique event focused on improving the agricultural literacy of almost 1,200 students in grades two through five. Held at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, Farm City Day features hands-on events, engaging displays and lots of fun. It has has become increasingly popular and has proven to be a great opportunity to educate young minds on the importance of agriculture. Held in conjunction with the Keystone International Livestock Exposition, it is a great learning experience for students and teachers alike. Farm City Day lets the agriculture industry tell our story to the next generation of consumers and leaders."-PA Dept of Agriculture
