BRANCH AREA CAREERS CENTER EARLY EDUCATION AND EDUCATION ACADEMY JOINS “Level Up” DURING NATIONAL FCCLA WEEK
Coldwater, Michigan – Members of the Branch Area Careers Center of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) will join more than 200,000 members in celebrating National FCCLA Week February 12-16, 2018. This year’s theme is “Level Up With FCCA” 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 address teen and societal concerns and show how the Early Education and Education Academy Programs can help them achieve the Ultimate Leadership Experience.
FCCLA members were busy during the week with a variety of activities including FCCLA Promo Day, Careers in Action, Say Thanks, and Unite in Red. Students will continue to support many community service projects for the remainder of the school year as well as prepare for the FCCLA State Leadership Conference being held on March 21-23,2018 in Midland, Michigan.
