LATEST UPDATES AND CURRENT BUSINESS:

Goodbye message from Mr. DiLuzio:

To my PHS FFA Family,

  My family and I will be moving back to Pennsylvania at the end of the month. This was a tough decision, but the right decision so that we can be closer to family. I have absolutely enjoyed that past four years that I have been an Ag teacher at Pflugerville and I will miss it very much. I am very grateful that I was given a chance to teach here and be part of the FFA. 

  The relationships that I have had with the students and families in the FFA are what I will miss most about Texas. Being a transferring teacher from a different state four years had many challenges, but the transition was easy because of all of the great people in the FFA and at PHS. Mr. Beeler has been the best teaching partner that I could have asked for and I appreciate all of the knowledge that he has passed on to me. 

  I will miss you all very much and being a PHS FFA Advisor will always be a highlight of my career. If you'd like to stay in contact, I know many of you have my phone number so feel free to text or call! You can also reach me at brian.diluzio@gmail.com. Best of luck to all of you in everything that you do!!!

  Sincerely,

  Mr. Brian DiLuzio

FFA Boosters Need Volunteers- If you are interested in taking on a leadership position with the FFA Boosters for next school year, please reach out them for more information. We are in need of a few open positions to ensure the organization can support the hard working students!

 

New Agriculture Facility Update: Since we have been in a semi-virtual environment, some of you may have not been able to keep an eye on the construction of PHS' new agriculture facility. The new agriculture facility is being constructed in the old wrestling room/weight room which is located behind the current Agriculture portables. This new facility will have 2 classrooms, 2 restrooms, a storage room, a large shop area that will be used by the agriculture classes, and a covered outside area for animal demonstrations and care. We are very excited to have a dedicated area for agriculture education on campus and we are very grateful for the voters and supporters that helped make this a reality from the bond that was passed a few years ago. 

2021 Rabbit Alternative Show- CONGRATULATIONS TO CADEN CRANE, D'MARION SPELLER, AND SAMANTHA DEZEEUW!!! Caden won GRAND CHAMPION!!! D'Marion was 3rd place and Samantha was 8th place!!! Great job to everyone involved! A huge shoutout to Tracey Cortez who is an Ag teacher at Juan Navarro High School in Austin for his efforts and coordination to make this event possible.

borrowed from the PHS FFA Booster Club:
How much do parents pay for show animals?

One of my friends asked, "Why do you pay so much money for your kids to show animals?" Well I have a confession to make, I don't pay for my kids to show animals

So, if I am not paying for them to show, what am I paying for?

- I pay for those moments when my kids become so tired they want to quit but don't.

- I pay for those days when my kids come home from school and are "too tired" to go the barn but go anyway.

- I pay for my kids to learn to be disciplined.

- I pay for my kids to learn to take care of their body.

- I pay for my kids to learn to work with others and to be good team mates.

- I pay for my kids to learn to deal with disappointment, when they don't win what they'd hoped for, but still have to work hard in the grading.

- I pay for my kids to learn to make and accomplish goals.

- I pay for my kids to learn that it takes hours and hours and hours and hours of hard work and practice to create a champion, and that success does not happen overnight.

- I pay for the opportunity my kids have and will have to make life-long friendships.

- I pay so that my kids can be in the ring instead of in front of a screen...

...I could go on but, to be short, I don't pay for show animals, I pay for the opportunities that showing provides my kids with to develop attributes that will serve them well throughout their lives and give them the opportunity to bless the lives of others. From what I have seen so far, there is no greater investment out there.
