FFA Students at ROP Youth Ag. Summit
Our Calexico High School, Future Farmers of America (FFA) students had an excellent experience at the ROP Youth Agricultural Summit, where they were exposed to different aspects of agriculture by visiting Schaffner's Dairy, Keithly-Williams Seeds Nursery, and Ronnie Leimgruber Farms. The field-trip brought hidden gems to light for the students that attended the trip and are interested in pursuing a career in Agriculture.
FAFSA State Award
Thank you to our Counselors, Teachers, CARPE, District Office Team, and everyone who helped with the phone-a-thon to encourage our CHS students to apply for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)!! Calexico High School placed first in the state for the number of students who applied for FAFSA and was recognized by the California Department of Education and the California State Financial Aid Commission for this great effort!!
Have a great weekend!
