Welcome Back BBQ Karla Soto Cuevas




Thanks to all the new and old members and parents that attended the 2018 annual Welcome Back BBQ. In this meeting, we had the chance to meet our 2018-2019 chapter officers. To all the new members, this was an opportunity to explore what FFA has done in the past and how you can become more involved. After a brief meeting from the officers, everyone gathered by the grill to socialize with other members over hot dogs and lemonade.

FFA Officer Retreat Alyza Montes



This year's officer retreat was from June 2nd-3rd. The officers and ag advisors went up to Moncrief cabin in Twain Harte. While we were up there we planed the FFA meetings for the year and set goals that we all wanted to accomplish as a team by the end of the year. We also did fun leadership activities like taking long walks in the forest and playing Traini’s crucible. We all had an amazing time bonding as a team.

FFA Ice Cream Social Priscilla Flores


On Friday the 17th of August, students all came to the ag department to enjoy a multitude of many different flavors of ice cream on a hot day. They not only got to eat ice cream, but also had the chance to meet with new FFA members, along with old friends. Overall, there was a great turn out for the first FFA meetup of the year, and a great way to start the 2018 school year.
