Whole Hog

The Grassland FFA did the annual Whole Hog fundraiser this year to help support a local Garden Spot High School student who was diagnosed with Cancer this past year. He had no affiliation with the FFA. Yet, the students thought it would be a great way to give back. The Whole Hog fundraiser always helps and support places/ or people in our community. We try and do our best to keep the community better.

This year, the Whole Hog was on Feb. 26th in our Ag. Department. We do this every year for National FFA week. National FFA Week is when FFA chapters around the country celebrate a week-long tradition that began in 1947 when the National FFA Board of Directors designated the week of George Washington’s birthday as National FFA Week in recognition of his legacy as an agriculturist and farmer. We served meals and had a dine-in opportunity for students and staff. The meal consisted of a Pulled Pork sandwich, Baked Beans, Cole Slaw, and a Cookie. The FFA was greatly represented by members from grades 9-12th who some helped since 7 A.M! We started 6 weeks of planning and sent out letters to local businesses for delivery opportunities. We had support all over our community and it was great! Having great teamwork has gotten us through this Fundraiser.

We are thankful to all who helped and supported this student in a great time of need. We had a great outcome and great time.

Summer Officer Retreat 2014

We had a fun and productive day during the Officer Retreat on Saturday, August 3rd. We had a great learning experience with Miss. Pray and Mr. Wright, as this was their first summer Officer Retreat. In the morning, we all got to know each other and did some team building activities. We worked on planning our Program of Activities (POA) for the year and worked on forming individual officer, officer team and chapter goals for the upcoming year. We then treated ourselves to a fun afternoon of team building at SkyZone in Lancaster.  Even Miss. Pray and Mr. Wright had a great time jumping with us. Overall, the day treated us well and we had an amazing time. We are super excited for all of the awesome activities that we will be holding this school year!
