FCCLA Week Promotes Positive Program

Chase Merrill - Staff Reporter

     On February 12, the local FCCLA chapter kicked off an exciting FCCLA week filled with fun. The goal of the week was to promote FCCLA and explain what it stands for to the students. The week consisted of different dress up days, activities, and contests. 

     On Monday, it was “mismatch day” giving students and the staff a chance to show off wacky hair dos and funky clothes. Also on Monday, students performed random acts of kindness, and FCCLA held a coloring contest for the elementary students. On Tuesday, the theme was teacher-student swap day, where students got to dress up in teachers apparel and vice versa. Wednesday was red and white day to show support to FCCLA as it is the organization’s colors. 

     On Thursday, teachers and students were encouraged to wear their favorite hat. Starting at 7:30 am on Thursday, the group held a FCCLA appreciation breakfast with all staff, school board, adopted grandparents, and FCCLA member parents in attendance. 

     Finally, on Friday it was pajama day and throughout the school there were FCCLA logos hidden. Anyone who found a logo could turn it in for a prize. The chapter also had valentines hearts and candy for sale, that would be delivered to the student/teacher of the buyer’s choosing. The money accumulated went towards the FCCLA member’s state projects.
