    Welcome Letter

    Parent/Guardian, Welcome to Mr. Yarbrough’s class

     

    Dear Parent/Guardian,

    I am so excited to have your child in class this year. This is my 17th year at Aubrey High School and I have a lot of plans to have the best year yet for your student. Each student will be given a class Syllabus (also posted on my teacher page) to take home and share with you. I would ask that you read and sign the syllabus and send back to school with any questions that you may have. My Class Schedule is also posted on my web page and I will be happy to help you with any questions.

    Thank you for trusting me with your child and I cannot wait to get to know you and your child.

    Sincerely

    Tracy Yarbrough

    Course Description: Ag Equipment and Design/Ag Structures will provide an introduction to welding technology with an emphasis on basic welding laboratory principles and operating procedures.

    Welcome to the Agriculture Department and Aubrey FFA. I would like to tell you a little about myself. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree from Texas A&M University Commerce. I also have an Associate of Applied Science Degree from North Central Texas College along with a Certificate in Agriculture Management. I am a certified Welder myself as well as a Certified Welding Examiner which means I am able to certify my students in welding and I look forward to doing that his year for the students enrolled in my shop classes. 2020/2021 will be my 17th year at Aubrey High School and I am very excited about all of the Agriculture class and FFA Activities that we have planned for  this year.

    School Supplies: You will need a 3 subject spiral  notebook for all Ag Science classes. In addition, If you are in one of my shop classes, you will also need a pair of Z87 OSHA approved safety glasses. I will have some available for $3 or you may purchase your own. They should be clear, yellow or blue lenses. (no dark glasses please). Everyone is required to wear safety glasses at all times in the shop, no exceptions.
     
     
    This summer we had a virtual Texas FFA State Convention for the first time in history. During this virtual convention the students who attended learned a more significant meaning behind the FFA, as well as attended many general sessions, and voted on the new State Officer Team. We had several members attending the convention and 9 students receiving their Lone Star Degrees as well as a state proficiency winner. We also had our first State FFA ambassador who will be serving the state FFA this year.
