Each year, FFA chapters around the country celebrate National FFA Week. The week-long tradition 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. 

The first National FFA Week was held in 1948. This year, FFA Week always runs Saturday, February 20 to Saturday, February 27 which encompasses Washington's birthday February 22 birthday.

The Garden Spot chapter will be having different themes for each day. All students and staff are invited to participate. Those themed days are:

Monday, February 22: Chapter T-Shirt and Boots Day
Tuesday, February 23: Camo Day
Wednesday, February 24: Flannel Day and an Ice Cream Social for staff after school
Thursday, February 25: Official Dress Day
Friday, February 26: Tractor Day

The FFA is advised by Mr. Steve Smith and Mrs. Holly Oberholtzer,
