'Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America'

ADVISOR: Mrs. Straw

Family, Career and Community Leaders of America is a national Career and Technical Student Organization that provides personal growth, leadership development, and career preparation opportunities for students in Family and Consumer Sciences education. FCCLA is the Ultimate Leadership Experience. We will be holding community events and fundraisers this year. We will also be competing in STAR Events in February. Looking forward to a productive year with leadership opportunities for everyone. I have three officers attending the Fall Leadership Conference to develop leadership skills and guide our chapter in the ultimate leadership experience.

Career Connections:

   Obstacle courses, presentations, and activities were set up to increase 7th graders interpersonal communication skills.


Families First: 

Each chapter officer chose two minute to win it games for our family game night. We then brought in all the items needed and tried out the games to Make sure we knew the rules and could demonstrate if need be. We then set the date and created flyers to post in the community. We also advertised our event in the local paper, on our school FB page, our chapter FB page and our school website. We then set up our gymnasium at school for the game night. We had a great turn out. We even partnered with NHS to host a canned food drive as a donation for the evenings activities. We had many families attend and over 50 donated food items. 

Financial Fitness & Leadership Service in Action:

FCCLA Officers came in and spoke to 8th graders in FACS class about the importance of managing finances. The students were broken up into pairs, given a budget and used the Life Event Planning STAR  event to plan a vacation. They then presented them to the class. 

 Community Service:

Our local shelter is over run with puppies, kittens, dogs, cats, and even a pig. Each of these animals has either been abandoned, surrendered, or dumped around our rural area. Our shelter is out of the way and does not get any foot traffic. We knew they needed help, so we decided to step in and lend a hand.  We held an adoption booth at Rodeo Days and adopted out two dogs 8 kittens and 1 cat! 

Student Body 2018-2018: 

Our goal is to educate our 9-12 grade students on the dangers of vaping and e-cigarettes. Our objectives are to demonstrate the dangers through presentations with Kara Colby. We will partner with Golden Valley Medical Clinic to host two presentations with demonstrations of the dangers of vaping and e-cigarettes.

Leadership Service in Action FCCLA:

Over the summer FCCLA members came together to paint positive messages in the boys and girls bathrooms in the high school. Students have enjoyed the change of scenery and the positive messages. 


We began our project by collaborating with our school bus drivers to develop a few key bus safety rules they felt needed to be addressed with Kindergarten students. Next we went to the Kindergarten class and read the book "Pete the cat, the wheels on the bus". This book demonstrated several safety issues that Pete encounters and how he changes his behavior to be safe on the bus. We also had a fun printable workbook that the students colored that was based on the book. The workbook covered highway signs and bus safety. Finally we walked all the students out to an actual school bus and had them demonstrate all the safety procedures we just learned about. 

STOP the Violence:

We thought what better way to give each student some good vibes then to put some positive messages a in place everyone would see them, in the bathroom! With the help of the Osceola Optimist Club several chapter members painted positive messages on the boys and girls bathroom stalls this summer
