    For this competition, student designers were challenged to create a wearable design using only recycled materials.  North Allegheny entered two designs.  The first design, created by Parastoo Aramesh (10th grade, NAI) was modeled by Leela Pinnamaraju (10th grade NAI).  This was a garbage bag sheath dress adorned with delicate tissue paper flowers.  The second design, created by the North Allegheny Fashion Class at NASH, was inspired by the "elements of design" and features garbage bags, gold duct tape, and the showstopping paint chip skirt.  Kaleigh Flavin (11th grade, NASH) was our model.  The paint chip dress won first place in the student design category!

    NASH FCS STUDENTS

    NASH’s foods class enjoyed a visit from Ron Trout, owner/operator of the new Chick-fil-a coming to Wexford.  Ron discussed the business aspects of owning multiple franchises, the food safety and sanitation rules needed to operate, and how Chick-fil-a’s personable customer service keeps them an active competitor in the fast food industry despite being closed on Sundays.

     PROJECT BASED SERVICE LEARNING

    cms  

    Over 200 North Allegheny FCS students participated in a community service project early this fall. The project involved designing and constructing mats for homeless individuals to sit/sleep on. The fabric textile pieces for the project would have been designated as "trash" by Levin's Furniture store. One store associate, Isabella Love, reached out to the FCS department when she came up with the idea to construct something useful out of these discontinued fabric samples. Students in 8th grade FCS classes across the district and those in NAI's Independent Living class, participated in the project. Students learned sewing basics and worked in groups designing and constructing the mats. Now many Levin's stores are on board and sending their swatches for the project to continue with more student involvement throughout the year. So far, thirty seven mats have been completed and will be distributed by Wexford Community Presbyterian Church.
