An Important Time of Year! Career and Technical Education Week and Celebrating FCCLA


What did you do during FCCLA Week?Osakis1-State Advancers


Yes, it’s one of my favorite times of the year!  The second week in February means National FCCLA Week and here’s what one chapter did. The week for the chapter was packed full of activities. The entire student body got involved with dress up days that we had each day corresponding with different FCCLA events:

Monday: Winter Survival Day- Remember FACTS (Families Acting for Community and Traffic Safety) and drive safe

Tuesday: Dress for Success

Wednesday: Hawaiian Day- Don’t Lei Around… Get Active in FCCLA

Thursday: Fandom/Movie Star Day- Make a difference with STAR Events

Friday: Red Day- #SpreadTheRed

At the mid winter meeting, students handed out mint themed bags to all the staff because they have all “mint” a lot to us.

A Promote and Publicize team hung up FCCLA banners around town and asked the bank and Cenex to advertise the event on their scrolls.  Members handed out leis on Wednesday to fellow students.  The week was finished off with an FCCLA Dance with the proceeds going to help a charity.

Phew!!!  A busy week but it was awesome to see everyone in school so involved and excited about FCCLA!

It is also Career and Technical Education Month. 

During these modern times, the pursuit of a good education is more necessary than ever. One of the most important fac


tors in having a good education is Career and Technical student organizations. These organizations really do provide the United States with a strong foundation. While being enrolled in a math class may teach you how to do the Pythagorean Theorem, FCS classes teach you skills that will help you survive in the jungle of life. These are the organizations, and classes, that help kids become more confident in their speaking, or even teach members how to make, save and spend money wisely. I can honestly say that Career and Technical Education classes have helped me become the person that I am today and will always be with me for the rest of my life.’
