FFA

Advisors:  Stacy Fritz and Tim Willette 

The Chatfield FFA is an intra-curricular student organization for those interested in agriculture and leadership. It is one of the three components of agricultural education.  Our focus is on leadership, community service and the personal development of all students going through the program. 

The Chatfield FFA has been a Top 10 Chapter in Minnesota for the past five years and was announced the Top Chapter (Premiere FFA Chapter of MN) in 2018.  the Advisors and Supporters of our program are committed to providing top quality opportunities for our students that are relevant to what they need as individuals.  

The Chatfield FFA has Affiliated Membership meaning ALL students enrolled in an agriculture course automatically have their membership paid to the local, state and national FFA Organizations.  This is one of the many ways that the Chatfield FFA provides equal opportunities for all students who may have an interest in the organization

 

The letters “FFA” stand for Future Farmers of America. These letters are a part of our history and our heritage that will never change. But FFA is not just for students who want to be production farmers; FFA also welcomes members who aspire to careers as teachers, doctors, scientists, business owners and more. In fact, most of our members do not live on a farm.  Each student who goes through our program has a personalized experience based upon their interest and needs.  The greatest thing about FFA is that it can benefit ANYONE who chooses to participate no matter their career path.

Chatfield FFA has launched a Virtual Fun Run/Walk to help #BreaktheStigma on Mental Health.  This event runs until Friday Nov 5 and we will have a Celebration/Memorial on Saturday Nov 6 with a meal and a display where you can artistically memorialize a loved one or yourself  - people who battle or have lost the battle to mental health need to be recognized.  Every participant who signs up receives a medallion and there is an option to purchase a t-shirt if you wish.  Teams can be formed and signed up together.  Adults and Community members are encouraged to sponsor students to help increase participation.  Sign up at the website below

The FFA will be continuing their efforts to promote talking about the struggle and encouraging positive mental health habits in the high school between now and Nov 5.   If you would like to be a part of this planning please let Ms. Fritz know.  Anyone can help - we are all in this together.
