Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA)
Students that have had courses in CCO/Preschool, Fashion, Professional or Gourmet Foods, and FCS careers are registered as members of FCCLA. These students attend leadership conferences and workshops. They also compete in Family and Consumer Sciences’ areas for Sectionals (February) and at the State level (April in Springfield, IL). These areas include culinary demonstration, pastry arts, entrepreneurship, professional career image, fashion apparel, apparel construction, preschool lesson plans, preschool storytelling, and job interview (to name a few).
This club has three officers, with meetings during class time and before/after school on scheduled days. We also have a fundraiser in October to help pay for the conferences and competitions. Fun, educational, and career related activies are planned by the student members and officers who develop leardership skills as a result of participation.
