FFA Livestock Show

The Aldine ISD Livestock Show has been one of the district’s largest annual events since 1959. Students involved in our Agriculture Science and Technology Education programs use this opportunity to showcase their abilities in animal, plant, soil, horticulture sciences, as well as welding, fabrication skills and management.

All proceeds from the livestock show go directly back to the students to help further their educations at a University, College or Trade school. These same students are also provided leadership opportunities through the FFA organization, to become tomorrow’s leaders.

The Aldine ISD FFA Livestock Show is providing the opportunity for the Aldine ISD Elementary schools to tour the livestock show. This tour will allow students, to have a real life experience with animals that the high school students have spent months raising. We will have the milking parlor exhibit by the Southwest Dairy Association. The FFA members are looking forward to educating the elementary students about the importance of Agriculture. The schools that participated last year found it very rewarding for their students.

The livestock show tour is designed to be an hour long. The tour dates are Thursday January 31st and Friday February 1st. The tour hours will be from 9:30 am – 11:30 am both days. This year we are opening registration to any elementary schools that would like to attend. The deadline for registration is January 21, 2019 for all tours. If the demand is greater we will possibly add additional slots.

Tours will run in 30 minute increments until 11:30 am. The tour is approximately and hour long.

All requests will be directed to your Schools Assistant Superintendent for Elementary Schools so that they may schedule a time for your elementary school. All Area Superintendent’s please contact Andra Collins-Johnson at [email protected] to sign your schools up for Educational Tours.

Transportation will be provided; when using FieldTripRequest.com please select CATE in the drop down box as the form of funding/payment.

We hope to see you there!

The five high schools that have agriculture programs would like to invite all middle schools to “The Middle School Experience”. This opportunity is available to students who are taking College and Career Readiness and students who have selected or are considering Agriculture as their career pathway. We would like to have a focus group of eighth-grade students to expose them to Agriculture Education and the FFA. We know that the FFA helps students to plan and implement lifelong goals. This experience could be used as an incentive for those students who have excellent attendance, appropriate STARR scores, and good behavior.

Schools can spark interest in many ways for this event. One is to look at those students who have already chosen Agriculture as a Career Pathway and the other is for those students who may be undecided about their career pathway choice. Students that went to the 8th Grade Expo and chose agriculture as their future career pathway would further benefit from this opportunity by getting a more intimate experience with FFA members. From these activities I am asking you to create a list-serve of all possible attendees. Schools can use these criteria and add their own to choose which students they would like to attend the experience.

The students will experience is an interactive presentation, attendees will see students actually showing their livestock, get a tour of the livestock show, meet FFA officers, experience phenomenal leadership training and enjoy refreshments.

The students will come to the M.O. Campbell Center on Thursday January 30, 2019 from 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. We hope to have 15-20 students from each middle school campus to come and learn about the leadership and scholarship opportunities available through the FFA.

Please register for your bus through the FieldTripRequest.com. All travel will be paid by CTE. Once you have selected your students please send a list of the students, teachers, and any other special request to [email protected]. If you need the CTE budget code for transportation, contact the CTE office. Please arrange for students to receive a sack lunch from the cafeteria or students can bring funds to buy items from the concession stand.

See you soon,
