Mr. Barry Honeycutt
I am a retired Agriculutre Teacher with 29 years of experience in the school system. I have taught high school for 21 years and I have worked in School Adminsitration for 8 years. I have grown up and still live in Johnston County on our family farm. We grow almost 30 acres of coastal burmuda hay, own 9 horses, have 50 chickens in egg production, and we are also managing our forest for growth of Loblolly pines that we planted in January. We have about 5 acres of produce that my daughters have used as a community supported agriculture program as a means of income while students in high school and at NCSU. I have raised swine and Angus cattle as a youth, and worked with goats, lambs and turkeys in the Johnston County 4-H program as well as FFA programs. I hope that my experience as a teacher and Agriculturalist will be a positive influence on the lives of our students at Meadow.
I am a big supporter of FFA and what it means to the lives of young people through the FFA. I always say if it wasnt good I would not encourage my own two daughters to be in it. They are on the verge of completing a span of very successful FFA participation in their careers. My oldest Carmen is already an Agriculture teacher that is excelling in her program at East Wake High School. The youngest Katelyn is making a run at National FFA Office this year October 2017. I hope to see our Meadow students share in great successes as well.
I have two class on my schedule for the Fall.
1st elective period - 7th grade - Modern Agricultural Practices for Safe Food and Fiber.
4th elective period - 8th grade - Understanding current issues impacting the agricultural industry.
My daily schedule is that I will be at the school until the end of 4th period each day.
I am also coaching Football and Track. Football practice will beging immediately after school and run for two hours. We should be done by 6pm each day.
The FFA will go along with both of my classes and will also include Spring Semester students.
The 1st week I will be gathering from our students some background information and Agriculture interest. I have also shared with them a page of Agriculture Webpages we will uise and FFA web sources. I hope they will be informative for our students.
I will be posting upcoming FFA events throughout the year. All Agriculture enrolled students 7th and 8th grade can participate in Fall and Spring FFA activities as well as 6th grade students will be allowed to be in FFA for the entire year. We will begin holding FFA meetings during the Tribe Time so students should be expecting that this Fall. We do know Middle School FFA Duses for state and national are $8 total. We will be working on getting members signed up soon. Thank you and I look forward to great school year and a very busy FFA group. Go Indian Blue and Gold FFA

The packets will remain outside of the building by the cafeteria at all times. Packets can be picked up at anytime from the container after Friday at 11:30am. For those who have digital access at home, please visit our school website on Thursday and a link will be provided for you to access this information.

The instructional packet includes material that has been previously taught and serves as review. These materials are not intended to be core instruction.
