Current seventh and eighth graders are being invited to join the national student organization Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA). FCCLA is a student led organization with the family as the central focus. This organization is one that will be taught in class as well as out of class. It encourages the student to develop leadership skills in many various areas that will benefit them throughout their school career. Students will need to have taken at least 1 semester of FACS previously or be currently enrolled in FACS.
We will be having meetings on Thursdays twice a month before and/or at lunch. Breakfast will be served at most of the morning meetings. We will also have days for service learning projects around the community. Students will be involved in working concessions at sporting events, participating in bake sales and other fundraising opportunities throughout the year.
Students will work on community-service based projects including: baking pumpkin pies to donate to shelters for Thanksgiving and Christmas, sewing blankets to donate to hospitals and nursing homes, and working with preschool students.
The fee for joining is only $9 for the year. This includes state and national dues. Chapter t-shirts will also available at a later date for an additional fee.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Well, the journalism class is off and running, already interviewing each other, and hosting a guest speaker. They are excited and ready to be reporting the news, sports and special interest items for our Pride Page. The journalism staff is made up of 20 Eighth Graders. Many of the students joined the journalism staff so they could work on their writing skills, while others wanted to hone their photography talents. Last spring the middle school received a PadCaster to help with live journalism and recording our stories. If you have something you would like us to cover, contact Shelly Ryan at email@example.com. This group is eager to get the story.
Parents, please contact your building secretary and let her know if your child is going to be out of school for any reason. Thank you.
