FCCLA, once known as FHA, was founded on June 11th, 1945.

Last week, students watched a video from a few members of the Superintendent Advisory Council.  These students would like further input from the student body in the form of a survey to be delivered tomorrow.  We asked a few questions of some of the members….

As the video said, be on the lookout for the survey tomorrow.  You will have a chance to voice your opinions in a respectful manner.
