Sheridan FCCLA Members Celebrate National FCCLA Week
Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) and its 200,000 members are celebrating 2018 National FCCLA week, Feb. 11-17. The theme of this year’s celebration is “United in Red,” in recognition of the many things FCCLA members and their advisers represent – both as individuals and as members of their chapters, state associations and the national FCCLA organization – in their families, schools and communities. During National FCCLA Week, members plan and carry out activities, and encourage others to do the same, to affect positive change and demonstrate how Family and Consumer Sciences education can help them achieve the “Ultimate Leadership Experience.”
Following the United in Red theme, Sheridan members are carrying out several projects during this week. These include: posting information about FCCLA around the school, recognizing chapter members with signs on their lockers, showing appreciation to staff, administration and school board members, wearing red and white on Wednesday to show support of FCCLA, placemats in local restaurants and window displays in local businesses.
The Sheridan FCCLA members have had a busy year with many activities like: a leadership rally held at Montana State University on Oct. 1-3, a traffic safety project, Caroling for Cans, a senior citizens' harvest dinner, cookie donations for the blood drive, and serving a county school board dinner.
Sheridan FCCLA members are currently very busy working on their projects for the state competition in March. Projects include the topics of: traffic safety, leadership, career investigation, recycle/redesign, self-esteem, fitness and nutrition, and suicide prevention.
