You may have seen a merry band of kids marching between Valley View Elementary and Bonners Ferry High School Wednesday morning, and if so, that was Mrs. Drea Leach’s fourth grade class, taking advantage of an invitation from high schoolers to celebrate National Ag Day.

The fourth graders helped students in Mrs. Julie Smith’s ag class plant flowers in the high school greenhouse, they also got a close up look at a few tractors driven to school just for the occasion!

The fourth graders enjoyed their visit, learned a bit about agriculture as well as got a little fresh air, sunshine and exercise on the walk while the high school students enjoyed exposing the next generation to the importance of agriculture in celebration of National Agriculture Week!
