Booster Club General Information


Please Consider Joining Tompkins FFA Booster Club
For The 2019-2020 School Year!

The Tompkins FFA Booster Club is made up of parents and extended family members
of Tompkins FFA students, Tompkins families and staff, members of the community,
business leaders, and former FFA students. 

The purpose of the Booster Club is to support the Tompkins FFA program and its members.
Money raised from fundraisers is used to support the FFA chapter with (including, but not limited to) travel expenses, equipment needed for chapter operations, and assistance with FFA
events and activities as needed. 

There are also many volunteer opportunities, including the support of students at the KISD progress show, KISD livestock show, community events, FFA banquet, and more. Booster club meetings are held each month on the same dates and at the same time as student chapter meetings. 

This is our fifth year as a new school, so this is a great time to help build a booster club that can
support and provide for the rapid growth and success of the Tompkins FFA program.

Your participation allows families and community members to work together to ensure the
success of our Tompkins FFA students!

Volunteer Hours

Volunteer hours can be submitted on the PTSA Web site
Both parents and students can submit volunteer hours.   

At Katy ISD, the raptor check-in system is used to log your volunteer hours spent at the 
school if you indicate that you are volunteering when you check in at the front office. 
However, the raptor system does not track your off-campus volunteer hours. 

Volunteers are asked to report any volunteer time spent outside of school hours or away from the school. The PTSA asks that these off-campus volunteer hours be reported every month.
You can submit them on the OTHS PTSA Web site under the "get involved" tab.
Here is the link:
http://www.tompkinshsptsa.org.
Or you can e-mail your hours to volunteers@tompkinshsptsa.org.
If you forget one month, you can include those hours the following month.  
If you have any questions or problems with this form, please contact the PTSA at volunteers@tompkinshsptsa.org.

Anything you do for ANY group in the school is counted.
For FFA families, off-campus volunteer hours can include any time you've spent driving your child
to and from the barn, as well as time spent at the barn, helping with the animals, booster club meetings,
and of course, at any FFA-related activity or event (or even preparing for an
FFA-related activity or event - i.e. shopping, cooking, painting, gathering auction items, etc.).
Again, this must be time spent outside of regular school hours.
These hours can be for any family member, including the students.
