CROCKETT –   February is an important month in the FFA community, as several events and activities take place at this time including FFA week. Crockett FFA has been on an expeditious journey within the school community and across Texas. The chapter enjoys interacting with Crockett Elementary and Junior High students to share and spread the influence of FFA. 

This year, FFA week was held from February 21 to February 24. During this special week, the agricultural literacy committee assembled a coloring page contest for the elementary kids to take part in and interact with the true colors of FFA. 

Students were also able to participate in “Agventure” day. “Agventure” day is a yearly event where officers and chapter members put together stations on various agriculture topics. Crockett FFA enjoyed exploring the plant, poultry, beef cattle, lamb and goat, ag mechanics and basic FFA stations. 

Our duty in Crockett FFA is to ensure that kids learn every day, even outside the classroom. Crockett students were just some of the ones to participate in FFA week celebrations. Teachers also participated in an online contest that challenged their knowledge of Crockett FFA and general FFA history. During FFA week, we truly expressed the honor of “learning to do, doing to learn, earning to live, living to serve.”
