The Mark Twain FFA Chapter will celebrate National FFA Week, Feb. 18-25,
2017. This year’s theme is Transform Purpose to Action, and it embraces
more than 89 years of FFA traditions while looking forward to the
organization’s future. Nearly 650,000 members will participate in National
FFA Week activities at local, state and national levels. These members
have a passion for agriculture.
Designated a national week in 1947, the week of George Washington’s
birthday, National FFA Week runs from Saturday to Saturday and gives FFA
members an opportunity to educate the public about agriculture. During the
week, chapters conduct a variety of activities to help others in their
school and community learn about FFA and agricultural education.
The Mark Twain FFA members will be providing a token of appreciation each
day to the faculty and staff so check your mailing boxes and dream about
the wonderful breakfast that will be provided on Friday morning in the
teacher work room
