  • This week is National FCCLA Week.  As part of this celebration the local chapter has various activities planned for you.  This morning you may have seen some FCCLA emblems around the school.  There are 16 of them found in the middle school area and 16 found in the high school area.  If you have seen one, please take it, hold on to it until (MS) your noon hour break, bring the of MS office, (HS) your noon hour break and bring it to Ms. Rieck’s room.  On the back of the emblem you will find a question.  There will be a board with the answers to the question on the back of emblem.  Check to see if you are correct and if you are, you will be able to claim a prize.  We are asking that each student only take one emblem, so that more students will be able to receive a prize.
  • On Wednesday and Thursday of this week the FCCLA chapter is asking you to help fulfill some needs of the local food pantry.  Right now, the only items needed are personal care items, cleaning items for the home, and the only food items needed are canned chicken and canned ham.  Bring your items to your first hour class of the day.  One middle school classroom and one high school classroom will receive a small prize for your efforts.  Check the posters that are hanging around the school for more details regarding the items needed.
  • On Thursday if you wear red, we will be taking some group pictures of those wearing red that will posted around school to help celebrate FCCLA Week.  Thank you in advance for your participation.
    Since we did not have school yesterday, we are extending the deadline until next Tuesday when we come back from break.
