Practicum in Ag Mechanics is also referred to as the "Block" or the "Pre-Lab". This class meets everyday for 2 class periods back to back. This year the class will be during 2nd and 3rd periods. Students will stay in the class for the duration and not leave the ag building once class has begun. This class is "hands on" with the majority of our time being spent working in the shop or in other parts of the building. It will require a strong work ethic and cooperative attitude to succeed in this class.
