Rogers Elementary spotlights agriculture for Family Learning Center


Jean Klosterman of the Marshall County Farm Bureau talks to families at Rogers Elementary School’s Family Learning Center October 23. The night focused on farm to table activities.

Rogers Elementary School held its first Family Learning Center of the school year the night of October 23, this time with a focus on agriculture.

The school partnered with the Marshall County Farm Bureau and invited students and families to experience a  “Passport to Agriculture” through farm to table learning stations and activities.

Stations focused on soil and food with a goal to explain how food gets from the farm to the tables of local families.

“What better way to celebrate Farm to School month than to educate our families about what our local farms do for us?” said Rogers teacher librarian Erin Faas.
