Promising Practices

Totally Acceptable...
  1. To be getting excited about National FFA Convention next week,
  2. To plan ahead to make a stop at the Teach Ag booth (#2455) and NAAE booth (#2172) during your time at National FFA Convention,
  3. To channel your inner Santa Claus by making your National FFA Convention packing list & checking it twice,
  4. To be totally excited and yet totally scared about taking students to National FFA Convention,
  5. To relax and enjoy the weekend because tomorrow is FRIDAY and next week is National FFA Convention!!!
