Castleford FFA members recently won the South Magic Valley FFA District Livestock Evaluation Career Development Event (CDE). Students had to evaluate beef cattle, meat goats, sheep, and swine. After placing these animals, the students provided judges with a set of oral reasons to defend their placing. Team members (back row, left to right) were Evan Fontes, Dacian Nunes, Travis Wells, Oree Reynolds, Nicholas Aguirre, Nathan Aguirre, Makaela Scott, and Charlie Cornie. Front row team members from left to right are Lilly Eldredge, Alexia Machado, Aubrey Mahannah, Hailey Kaster, and Abby Blick.
Makaela Scott placed 8th, Travis Wells placed 6th, Charlie Cornie placed 5th, and Abby Blick place 2nd overall in the district. These individuals who placed will compete at the state level this coming June.
Reminder: Student-led conferences are scheduled for this Wednesday, October 11th, from 3:30-7:00 p.m. Student-led conferences are different from regular parent-teacher conferences, in that students lead the conference: they have the opportunity to show their parents some of their best work and some work that could be improved. Students can also show their parents around the school. We hope you take this opportunity to learn more about your children’s progress and performance.
Free chili and cinnamon rolls will be provided!
