Welcome to Agriscience!
The Villages Charter Middle School is excited to be able to offer you this amazing opportunity. I hope that you will find this class challenging yet satisfying. We will work in the classroom, outside on campus and at the off campus ag farm.
You will also have the opportunity to become members of the VCMS FFA. We will have a fantistic year learning and growing together. We will participate in career development events, leadership events, community service opportunities and many other fun things together.
Supplies are similar for each grade level but additional supplies will be asked for at different parts of the year. Each student should have a 1" binder. 5 dividers, colored pencils, ruler, scissors and a glue stick. These supplies will be kept in the classroom in a storage container that I will supply. 8th grade students only: will need a pair of shoes to wear to the farm. These shoes should be marked with their name in some way and will be stored at the farm as well. These will be needed by September 3 .
