Family & Consumer Sciences (FCS) Day, “Dining In” for Healthy Families, in Toledo, Washington, is going to be a community event.
At a recent City Council Meeting, our amazing Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) members from the middle and high School presented our request for a proclamation to celebrate FCS Day on December 3rd. The proclamation was received and approved!
Tomorrow, December 1st, Toledo FCCLA and our district Superintendent, are hosting a “Dining In” event at the high school. FCCLA delivered invitations to the city council, local business owners, police and fire departments, and the senior center. Also invited are all district staff, students, and families.
Special VIP invites were sent to the governor, legislative representatives, and the FCS state supervisor and staff.
FCSfit, the newest AAFCS Signature Initiative, will be introduced by having FCCLA members learn the “Boot-Scootin’ Boogie” line dance to demonstrate the importance of health and wellness. Music is being provided by local musicians who are donating their time to this event.
Family and community will come together to visit our school, be served a free dinner, and be introduced to VIPs who support our city. We have other student groups collaborating to help us with our efforts: FFA, Skills USA, and the Toledo Honor Society. Watch for Twitter and Instagram posts!
