The Midvale FCCLA Chapter proudly honors the high school teachers at Midvale on May 11, 2017. This is a little tradition that started to thank the teachers at the end of the school year for supporting Midvale FCCLA members as they’re working hard to complete projects for FCCLA Leadership Conferences. The teachers have helped by looking over projects, checking for grammatical and other errors that need fixed and letting FCCLA members present their projects in class. FCCLA members are truly grateful for the support of their teachers. Pictured in the photo are some of the Midvale FCCLA members presenting Midvale English Teacher, Mr. Shaber, with a little appreciation gift. Thank you teachers for all that you do for your students!

Congratulations to Midvale FCCLA Poster Contest Winners!
Congratulations to the winners of 4th and 5th grade poster contest, “The Happier You Are The Healthier You Are,” put on by Abigale Atnip through the Midvale FCCLA Chapter. First place winner was Stella Warren, Second place was Tyler Boyle, and third place was Clayton Harper. Abigale put together a rubric for the poster contest, which held the rules on which the students were judged by, as part of her FCCLA project. For her project, she has been going into the 4th and 5th grade classroom to teach the students that being happy helps you to be healthier. As Abigale is preparing her project on Focus On Children for FCCLA National Leadership Conference in Nashville, Tennessee, she wanted to do one final activity for the students. The poster contest was a big hit for the 4th and 5th graders at Midvale. Congratulations again to the winners, and good luck at Nationals Abigale!
