Lone Oak FCCLA Creates a Mentoring Program
Lone Oak FCCLA created a mentoring program for elementary students called Buffalo Buddies. It is held in the evening once each 6 weeks. Students rotate through 3 stations, games, crafts, and a lesson over a character trait. Our first program was held September 26 and we focused on trustworthiness. Members read a book about trustworthiness to the students, led a discussion, and created several skits to show examples of what it means to be trustworthy. Buffalo Buddies gives a chance for high school students to be positive examples for younger students.
Clifton FCCLA has been focusing on multiple school and community projects such as:
* Collaborating with Interact, another student organization, to collect food for their local food bank
* Educating and promoting a safe and drug-free community with outside resources, such as VOICE, Inc. and their local Sheriff's Department
* Organizing a "Coats and Warm Clothes" donation for the county Families First program
* Spreading Christmas cheer by caroling at the local nursing home
