     FCCLA State Leadership Conference

    Last week six students from NAI and NASH traveled to the Pocono Mountains to compete against 400 other students at the 2018 Pennsylvania Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) State Leadership Conference.  North Allegheny has had at least one first place winner every year since 2015, and this year our students achieved once again. 

    Deitra Harnish, senior at NASH, placed first in the state with a silver medal in her event Fashion Construction.  In this event Deitra created a design inspired by the Met Gala.  She made a sketch and then constructed a full length sequin dress.  She began working on this project in the fall, and you can see her work on the runway at our upcoming fashion show “Met Gala” on Saturday, April 21st.fccls

    Parastoo Aramesh, sophomore at NAI received a near perfect score and gold medal for her project in Recycle, Redesign.  Parastoo also began work on her project in the fall, and her dress, which was showcased at the 2017 Salvation Army Garbage Bag Gala in November, was made of recycled Macy’s bags and tissue paper flowers.  It was stunning.  

    Their top score qualifies them to compete on the Pennsylvania team at the national FCCLA conference this summer in Atlanta, GA.  

    Sophomores Jillian Senrud and Isabella Narduzzi received silver medals in Chapter in Review Display; sophomore Hannah Lelis received a bronze medal in Illustrated Talk and sophomore Christina Zhou received a bronze medal in Life Event Planning.

    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!

    The NA FCCLA Fashion Club is holding its 2nd annual fundraiser next Friday October 20, 2017 in the FCS wing at NASH (Room 197, Door 17).  This fundraiser directly benefits our club and helps provide FCCLA leadership opportunities to our members.  The money we raise from the fundraiser will help support the club as we attend regional, state, and national conferences and competitions.  The funds will also help support our annual spring fashion show that benefits Miss 22 Quties. Please consider stopping by next week to help support our club.


    HEADS UP! SAVE THE DATE! The annual fashion show is:      Saturday April 21, 2017 at 7pm


    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.


                      FCS STUDENTS



    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.
