FBLA Week - February 13 - 19, 2022

During FBLA Week, members provided various services as requested by teachers of all grade levels. These services included: grading papers, sweeping and mopping, reading to and with students, practicing math fluency with students, organizing book shelves and Chromebook charging stations, and filing papers.

 

This yearly activity is so very appreciated by our teachers and staff.

2020-2021 School Year


This year's FBLA activities have been heavily affected by COVID restrictions. We were unable to have district workshops this year. We postponed until May our yearly FBLA Service Day which normally takes place during FBLA week in February.  The students provided services to several teachers and elementary students. It was a great activity!

Our hope is that the education world will normalize this next school year and that regular activities can begin again!
