FCCLA students present Super Hero capes to help sick children

MARCH 29, 2017

Sick children in hospitals up and down the Hudson Valley will benefit from the efforts of Scotia-Glenville’s FCCLA chapter and S-G middle school and high school students.

The students in FCCLA, short for Family, Career and Community Leaders of America, and students in the high school child development class, members of the middle school Makerspace club and members of the Scoville Home Bureau designed and created 19 super hero capes for sick children.

Scotia-Glenville’s super hero capes were among the 93 delivered to the FCCLA state Leadership Meeting in Owego last week (March 22-24) for the hospital program.

Teachers Cheryl Miller and Cheryl Ferraro are the FCCLA advisors.

Four FCCLA members – juniors Hannah Kunze, Marina Onderdonk-Milne and Matthew Miller and grade 7 student Grace Beauchamp – represented Scotia-Glenville at the conference. They participated in competitive events at the state event.

Hannah, Marina and Matthew received silver medals during their participation in the National Programs in Action STAR event and were chosen to represent NYS at the National Leadership Conference in Nashville this summer; Grace placed first in the Thematic Table Setting Skills Demonstration Event competition at the conference.

The S-G chapter was also recognized for completing a “Teen Crashes Got to Go” project and for completing a “Families Acting for Community Traffic Safety” (FACTS) project.

These child development students were involved in making the capes Caitlyn Burns, Kali Carlisle, Emily Clark, Shereena Clow, Jack Cooke, Kacey Cummiskey, Quynh Duong, Nichole Forstell, Scarlet Hudman, Madyson Hunt, Rosa Introne, Mackenzie Kennedy, Ava Maddalla, Brianna McGlauflin, Kaitlyn Murtagh, Taylor Nicklas, Rianna Passino, Brittney Rust, Aleena Sammons, TaVonna Sammons, Reegan Sheehy, Shannon Sill and Ekirra Taylor.

In addition, middle school students Anna Muscatiello and Jacquelyn Durant worked on the cape project.

Supplies for the capes were provided by members of Scoville Home Bureau (led by retired Scotia-Glenville teacher Evelyn O’Malley) and Miller supplied the materials made by the high school and middle school groups.
