Child Development addresses knowledge and skills related to child growth and development from prenatal through school age children. Students have the opportunity to take home the “computer baby” to discover what parenting is all about. The observation field trips to child care centers allow the students to discover their inner child while reflecting on children’s behavior.
Family, Career and Community Leaders of America – FCCLA
The students participate in projects and activities dealing with a variety of youth concerns, including relationships, substance abuse, peer pressure, and self esteem. Community service based projects are encouraged and profits from fund raisers are used to benefit a community organization.
Competition events are available to those members who are interested. Our Students have a long standing tradition of advancing to the National Competition held in various cities across the United States.
FCCLA offers members the opportunity to expand their leadership potential and develop skills for life. These skills include planning, goal setting, problem solving, decision making and communication. A student must be taking or have taken a Family & Consumer Sciences course. They can be active members even if they are not currently enrolled in a course.
