April 6 @ 10Am Brought to the children by Vonderlieth Living Center & Mt Pulaski Jaycees FCCLA Members and Mr. Waterkotte dressed up for Pajama Day FCCLA Members who attended Section 12 Conference February 10-16 marked National FCCLA Week this year and the Mount Pulaski Chapter celebrated in usual style. The week began early, with a group of students going to Vonderlieth Living Center to Celebrate Valentine's Day Feb- ruary 9 by delivering cards and cooldes and visiting with the residents. The rest of the week, hhestudents relied on plans that a committee had made closer to the beginning of the year. As, they do every year, the FCCLA sponsored'dress- up days for the students of Mount Pulaski High School. Monday was Pajama Day, Wednesday Was Twin Day, Thursday was Red and White Day and Friday was Fash- ion Disaster day. Many of the students and staff of the school got into the spirit by dressing up. The chapter sold Crushes for Crushes again this year. For the last three years, the FCCLA has sponsored Crushes for Crushes as a Valentine's Day activity for the students of MPHS. The students are able to purchase a Crush soda to be deliv- ered to a person of their choosing with a personalized note from the'sender. These sodas are available in three different fla- vors: orange, representing friendship; grape, representing aving a crush; and strawberry, representing love. The stu- dents really enjoy the exchange.and this year they purchased a schoolrecord of just over 400 Crushes tO share with their friends and significant others. Valentine's Day, sixteen of the FCCLA members and Mr. Waterkotte were not at school so they could attend the FCCLA Section 12 Conference and Competition in Athens. These students spent the day attending workshops on a variety of sub- jects including preventing bullying, col- lege preparedness, knife skills, and Zumba fitness. They were also able to attend a keynote presentation by Topper Steinman that encouraged the students to remember who they are as a person and to represent themselves well. Many students were able to compete in a variety of events that they have been preparing for throughout the year. This year, twelve MountPulaski FCCLA members who competed at the Section Competition qualified to advance to the state level competition in April in Springfield.
