A spotlight on FCCLA

posted Feb 12, 2015, 11:17 AM by stu.michellewillson@usd356.org

FCCLA week will be Feb. 17-20. FCCLA week is a time to put a spotlight on the group and what they do. FCCLA stands for Family, Career and Community Leaders of America.

“I love being in FCCLA and knowing that what I do makes a difference,” senior Garrett Hartman said.

At the home basketball game on Feb. 20, there will be a box for pillowcases and T-Shirts. FCCLA will use the pillowcases to make dresses for little girls in Africa, which will be given to the Little Dresses for Africa foundation. The foundation will pay to have the dresses sent to Africa and passed out to girls that need them.

FCCLA week is also for shining a light on its members. There are 20 members this year. They will all receive a gold star with their name on it, a sign that says #CSHSFCCLAUnited on their locker and a dirt cup at lunch on Friday.

According to FCCLA sponsor Ms. Julius, #CSHSFCCLAUnited connects to the theme on Monday, “Media Blitz”. It’s a way to tell everyone about FCCLA by posting on social media to inform the world of what the group does.

“FCCLA is a great opportunity to be able to help people who need it,” sophomore Tabitha Stuhlsatz said.
