National Program Breakout Box Activity
This activity is similar to an escape room where a team of people solve clues to unlock multiple locks on a box in order to “Break out of the Box”. In this scenario, you are preparing for the new school year in FCCLA by deciding to do the National Programs in Action STAR Event. As you are researching the national programs, you notice 1 of the 8 programs are missing! Your job is to figure out each program and which one is missing!
For more information contact Washington State Vice-President of Programs – Christine Grant firstname.lastname@example.org or her adviser Rachel Aszklar email@example.com for this activity.
- Instructions: including details on where to find the most cost friendly materials, and how to set up the boxes
- A Slideshow Presentation: Used for explaining the activity to students in an FCCLA meeting or Family and Consumer Science class explaining the activity and national programs
- An after-activity survey: fill this out after your chapter or FCS class completes the activity! I want to know how the activity went, and how your chapter will write their story with a national program. This is also documentation showing that your chapter completed the activity!
- An information sheet: details about each national program and outreach program and ways students/chapters are able to get involved and achieve nationwide awards!
My hope is that chapters and FCS classes will be able to have lots of fun with this activity! Make sure to take pictures too! Post them on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook with the hashtag #wafcclanp and tag us @WashingtonFCCLA. Chapters that complete this activity will be highlighted at State Leadership Conference in March.

This year, Washington FCCLA’s community service organization is The Soup Ladies, an non-profit that quickly provide fresh cooked meals to support first responders such as police and fire departments, search and rescue teams and military personnel in times of emergencies and disasters.
To participate in the community service project, each chapter should contribute an item that represents their region for both an adult themed basket and a student themed basket. Each region will make two baskets that will hence represent the regions from which they come. These baskets shall then be auctioned off at the State Leadership Conference in March.
Have questions? Contact Caden Doggett, Washington State Vice President of Community Service at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Financial Fitness Challenge
Financial Fitness engages members in teaching one another how to earn, spend, save, and protect money wisely. Through FCCLA’s Financial Fitness program, members plan and carry out projects that help them and their peers learn to become wise financial managers and smart consumers. FCCLA members can build their peers’ financial literacy and teach them skills for managing their finances.
Financial Fitness Units
- Earning – sharpen on-the-job financial fitness
- Spending – track and plan personal spending
- Saving – conquer bank accounts, credit, and investments
- Protecting – keep financial and personal interests safe
Spending: Track and Plan Personal Spending
The second key component of Financial Fitness is spending. Once you have found a continuous income stream it can be easy to spend quickly and without much thought. However, it is critical that you form a clear plan to best fit your chapter needs. If your chapter income reaches $200 a month, plan to put at least $40 in savings. This will help to limit you from spending too much on unnecessary items and will also help to protect you in the future. Even if your monthly income appears to be on track to rise, refrain from spending money that you do not yet have. Once you have formatted a clear spending plan fill out the quick survey below for a chance to be recognized.
Have a wonderful December,
WA-FCCLA VP of Parli Law and Finance
