Senior Tables

This year all seniors are invited to create a "Senior Table" in the entryway of the auditorium . Each senior will be assigned to 1/2 of a 6 foot table with a black vinyl table cloth. Students can decorate as much or as little as they. We encourage students to bring all their FFA awards to display. Students should also get a mason jar from Mrs. Graf to decorate and the end of the year awards students/parents/teachers will be able to write words of encouragement! Below are few inspirations. Seniors/Parents can set up their tables starting at 3:00pm on Wednesday May 19th.

Funding for CDE Contest-Bring your donations NOW!!!

Traditionally the Plano West FFA Chapter and Plano West FFA Booster Club host an invitational contest at Plano West at the end of March. This is a huge fundraiser for the chapter due to covid we have not been able to host this contest in 2020 or 2021 so the overall income of the Plano West FFA Booster Club is significantly lower than years past. Also, the expenses are now lower due to no overnight travel and less contest overall.


We still need funds to help offset the the entry fees($8-$15 per contest per student), fuel, polos, scantrons, meals, and other supplies for CDE Contest. If you did not sell a minimum of 5 ButtterBraid, then FFA member should consider on a $50-$75 donation to the Plano West FFA Booster Club. These can be put in the booster club boxes in the ag classrooms. Students can drop these off anytime! The sooner the better so we can budget properly.


Thank you for supporting Plano West FFA!!!
