Wheat Week is brought to us by Franklin Conservation District and is for 4th & 5th grade students. During this one week course, students are educated about water, soil, plant breeding, energy, systems, and wheat and how they impact our lives. The teachers are asked to plan together so each day for five days, 3-4 classrooms come can together to receive one hour lessons.
For the school year September 2017 – June 2018, 859 students and 28 teachers participated in the Wheat Week educational program. Students from Outlook Elementary; Chief Kamiakin Elementary, Pioneer Elementary, and Sunnyside Elementary in Sunnyside; Kirkwood Elementary, Lincoln Elementary and Valley View Elementary in Toppenish; Adams Elementary and Satus Elementary in Wapato; and Zillah Intermediate.
