Middle school FCCLA students participate in state leadership conference

Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) students from Roxboro Road Middle School and Gillette Road Middle School recently attended the  New York State FCCLA Leadership Conference.  The conference provided students with the opportunity to interact with, and learn from other FCCLA students from around the state. 

During the March 22 event held at the Double Tree Conference Center in East Syracuse, students engaged in various workshops such as: Your Digital Tattoo & Online ImageTraffic SafetyDress for Success and a culinary demonstration. This was an outstanding experience for our FCCLA students and gave them the opportunity to showcase their leadership skills.

Valley Central Student Reveal Fashion Flair

On May 9 the Valley Central High School Family and Consumer Science Department put on their first ever Fashion Show and International Foods Night along with the Foreign Language Department to raise funds for FACS scholarships. The fashion show has been led by Rebekah Stoll for the past 3 years though this was the first time having the FACS department showcase their culinary skills as well. The evening started with a professional photographer coming in to take photos of the models in their student made clothes around the school. The photographer, Andrew Stoll Photography, continued to take pictures of the students on the runway. The show begin with a Trashion portion which included 4 outfits made entirely from recycled materials. In total, 26 students participated as either models or designers. The show was a success!

Literature in the Classroom

This is a project that I do with my Chef's workshop class at the high school level. 

I show them the powerpoint and have them pick a rule. I do not eleaborate on the rules as that is what they are supposed to do in the assignment. They may pick any of the ways to do the project they wish powerpoint, newspaper, comic strip etc... I also add a time management element and give them a calendar to plan when they will get it done. I will often give them two days in the library. I don't schedule them together in order for them to do some research on their own.  I don't really like the rubric that I have at the moment so if anyone develops a better one please share.
