    Agriculture

    Last school year, HJH saw the addition of a new elective teacher, Mrs. Taylor Davis. Last year students were able to study embryology in the classroom, hatch 18 chicks, raise them in the classroom, and now have them outside in a chicken coop. Around the chicken coops, there is a garden where sunflowers and corn are grown. The eggs are donated to the culinary department at HJH. Students also learn about hydroponics in the classroom with a Vertical Hydroponic System, as well as in the Vertical Hydroponic System, as well as in the greenhouse. Harvests from these projects are also donated to culinary. Donations include lettuce (butterhead, romaine, swiss chard, kale, etc.). We are looking to expand the garden this year with various other crops. There are several judging teams including Citrus, Vegetable, Tool, Livestock, Horse, Dairy, and LDE's (public speaking, creed speaking, extemporaneous public speaking, opening & closing ceremonies, & prepared public speaking). Mrs. Davis is currently coaching the Tool, Livestock, and Prepared Public speaking teams. This year is the first year for program certifications with 6th graders. Certifications include Elanco Fundamentals of Animal Science Certification through iCEV. The students will take their certification tests this spring. The goal of the agriculture programs is to prepare students for careers and jobs within all aspects of the agriculture industry. Not only do they discuss careers that require a college degree, but also trades that many can become certified in before graduating high school. ​
