FCCLA Kickoff Aug. 21
FCCLA Kickoff will be held August 21st at 6:15 in the FCS Room. “No Telling How Far I’ll Go with FCCLA” is this year’s theme selected by the officers. Walking tacos and desserts will be served and those attending are asked to bring his or her own beverage. Information about this year’s events, dues, and fundraisers will be provided along with a viewing of last year’s slide show. Rounding out the night will be activities to get everyone moving.
Any interested students in grades 7-12 are encouraged to attend and are eligible to be a member. Students do NOT have to be in a current FCS class to join. FCCLA is the only student-led organization with family as its central focus. Students interested in becoming involved in community service, enhancing their communication and leadership skills, and learning about career opportunities are encouraged to attend. Members have the opportunity to attend district conference, compete in individual and team competitions, and participate in local community service projects. Additionally, the national cluster meeting will be held in Louisville, KY this year. “Please come and check out FCCLA, even if you are a “busy” person. In FCCLA you can participate in as many activities as you can manage. What you do is up to you. Learn about the opportunities available and participate in those that interest and benefit you!” said FCCLA President Jesica Schaefer.
