Members of the Elgin Public Chapter of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) will join more than 200,000 members in celebrating National FCCLA Week February 8-14, 2015.
This year’s theme is “Together We Are…” in recognition of the many things FCCLA students and 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 to highlight FCCLA. This week the Elgin chapter will be doing the following activities: Monday (today) – Media Blitz
Tuesday – Member Recognition
Wednesday – Red Out With FCCLA Thursday – Throw Back Thursday to celebrate FCCLA’s 70th birthday
Friday – Celebrate with Candy Grams and FCCLA at the table
FCCLA members are encouraged to prepare and eat a meal with their families.
FCCLA also joined the first grade class and the FFA chapter in a canned food drive during the month of January.
