EM FCCLA sponsored a "5th Quarter" activity following the EM vs. Tri-County football game. All 7-12 graders were invited to view a movie outdoors and enjoy some light snacks for FREE. 32 students attended the event and enjoyed the movie - Napoleon Dynamite. It was a nice evening to enjoy an outdoor movie.
EM FCCLA members had the opportunity to attend the Virtual Fall Leadership Workshop on Monday, Sept. 21st. Over 1,000 FCCLA members and advisers from across Nebraska attended. This workshop was attended by all District #4 FCCLA Chapters in lieu of the District Leadership Conference. EM FCCLA chose to participate as a group for the breakout sessions and to hold their monthly meeting and complete a chapter service project. Sessions included: Opening and Closing ceremony by the FCCLA State Officers, view the keynote presentations of the District #4 Chapters and District #4 Officer Introductions. Members were able to understand the History of FCCLA through the 75th anniversary presentation. We took time out to do team building activities and take in sessions by MADD, Yoga, AmeriCorps, and community service projects. In our chapter meeting we discussed PTC bake sale, roadside cleanup and Trick or Treat so Others May Eat- food drive. We were able to complete our "Notes for the Nursing Home". Members wrote notes to residents of Tabitha-Crete to introduce themselves and share a little bit themselves as related to the writing prompts provided. EM FCCLA Chapter also completed a school project of providing totes with personal hygiene items for the girl's restrooms. These items will be refilled and tended to by the EM Officers.
