Wayne students celebrate FCCLA Week


National Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) Week was the week of Feb.13 - 17. The Wayne Junior/Senior High FCCLA chapter celebrated FCCLA and showed gratitude to the school and community by planning activities for each day.

Monday was for recognizing FCCLA members and the chapter celebrated its 58 members by hosting a Movie Night in the Family & Consumer Sciences room. 

Tuesday was "Service" Day. Members prepared cookie plates and delivered plates to 20 area organizations and businesses to show gratitude to the community for their ongoing support of FCCLA in the community.

Wednesday was Teacher Appreciation Day. Members dressed like their favorite teacher and prepared a staff appreciation breakfast for all Wayne Jr./Sr. High staff members.

Thursday was "Skills" Day. Students posted skills they have learned through FCCLA and Family & Consumer Sciences classes on a poster in the hallway.

Through FCS education and FCCLA, students develop skills for life through character development, creative and critical thinking, interpersonal communication, practical knowledge and career preparation. 

"Family is the focus of FCCLA. Strong families build strong communities and are the foundation of our future. Wayne FCCLA members should be proud of the work they do to support this in and out of the classroom! Great job, all!" said Alina Surber, advisor for the group.
