FCCLA - FCS Student Organization
FCCLA (Family Career Community Leaders of America) is a co-curricular organization that offers students leadership training and opportunities for competition and community service. It is the largest student lead organization with family as its focus.
Students enrolled or that have been enrolled in a Family & Consumer Sciences (FCS) Class at Byron P. Steele II High School are highly encouraged to join the FCCLA student organization. There are 5 teachers at Steele that offer FCS classes: Mr. D’Alessio, Ms. Friesenhahn, Ms. Kowalik, Mrs. Mahoney, or Chef Slight. These 5 teachers all serve as advisors for FCCLA.
- As a co-curricular organization, FCCLA meetings are held during FCS class time monthly. Each FCS class has a representative that attends a monthly meeting held before school. These class representatives report back to their class.
- Every other Wednesday after school a Bake Sale is held to raise funds to support organization activities, community service projects, and students participating in regional, state, and national FCCLA STAR (Students Taking Action with Recognition) competitions.
