OMAK - Omak High School FFA members Kacie Vejraska and Corbin Hale designed and made “Boredom Books” for some elementary students.
The contents emphasize agricultural literacy by including a matching game with agriculture commodities, coloring and more. Helping the students print and package 420 booklets were Wendy Hensarling, Bob Crossland and FFA adviser Elaine Lewis.
Booklets were given to students on the district’s meal delivery buses.
Before the school closure, FFA students were scheduled to help North Omak Elementary School students plant sunflowers to learn about seed growth.
Despite the school closure changing their initial plan, the FFA students were determined to carry out their goal of providing elementary-level agriculture education in a creative new way, according to the district.
