The National FFA Organization was founded in 1928. Lodi FFA was established in 1928 as the first Chapter in the State of California, thus being named Lodi No. 1. In 1933, members across the country celebrated the first national FFA Day. In 1948, this would be changed to FFA Week and celebrated during George Washington’s birthday to recognize his pioneering contributions to American agriculture.
National FFA Week runs from Feb. 20-24 – The most spirited 3rd period class with the most student participation will win cookies for their class! Dress-up days and activities are as follows:
Wednesday – Wicked Sports Wednesday | Hay bucking Contest
Thursday – Flannel Enthusiasts Thursday | Musical Chairs
Friday – FFA Friday (Blue and Gold) | Kiss the Goat
