Family, Career & Community Leaders of America

FCCLA is an integral part of the family and consumer education program. In the local school, this means chapter projects and activities stem from and enhance family and consumer sciences programs of study. FCCLA chapters give students expanded opportunities for knowledge application, leadership training, community involvement and personal growth. many of these experiences occur during class time, while others may occur out of class. At the heart of FCCLA is involvement in projects and activities, student plan, carry out and evaluate themselves. Through FCCLA involvement, students sort out thoughts, analyze situations, set goals, interact with others, apply classroom knowledge, and become leaders in today's and tomorrow's families, careers, and communities. The Morris Local FCCLA Chapter sponsers a We Care Family with an annual donation, helps Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts earn badges by teaching, cooking and sewing lessons. FCCLA sponsors a game during homecoming week for students, sponsors FCCLA Week, provides a faculty appreciation gift during the year and does fundraising for State Competitions.
