Baldwinsville The Baker High School Family, Career, Community Leaders of America collected approximately 200 pounds of food with a food drive at the school in conjunction with the St. Patrick Hunger Project Food Drive. This collection runs in the Syracuse area from the beginning of March until its grand finish at the city’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Barrels filled with collected food to feed Central New York families line the parade route.
The Baker FCCLA chapter, started this year with the help of Family & Consumer Science teacher Christina Rode, is a student organization that promotes personal growth and leadership development through family and consumer sciences education. The organization focuses on the multiple roles of family members, wage earners and community leaders. Members develop skills for life through character development, creative and critical thinking, interpersonal communications, practical knowledge and career preparation.
