Celebrating Farm Week, a couple of baby pigs, also called piglets, were brought to South Point Elementary School for students in the life skills program to play with in a fenced area outside of the school.

Drew Roehrig from Riverview Farms in Augusta brought in the baby pigs for the students to touch, hold, play with and get their pictures taken with.

The life skills program teaches the skills students will need to be as independent as possible in everyday life.  

Photos of the students in the life skills program at South Point Elementary with the baby pigs are below.
