FISD students join forces for middle school campus cleanup
Vest-clad and ready to work, students from Floresville Middle School and members of Floresville High School Family, Career Community Leaders of America and Air Force Junior ROTC take time out for a group photo before tackling the trash.
Recently, Floresville Middle School students joined Family, Career Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) and Floresville High School Air Force Junior ROTC cadets to clean up the middle school campus. The ROTC-sponsored event is a community-service cleanup effort that focuses on all FISD campuses.
The purpose is to create a more professional, cleaner campus environment to encourage and support an improved academic learning environment for all students. Because there were so many volunteers, the group was also able to give the high school campus a cleanup.
After the cleanup, ROTC hosted a pizza and beverages lunch and movie, “Star Wars V, The Empire Strikes Back.” They also conducted drill team demonstrations and gave their FMS and FCCLA student guests a chance to fly the classroom flight simulator and try out the one-rope bridge team-building exercise. The event also provided a unique opportunity for the high school students to mentor the middle school students. Everyone had fun!
Student organization leaders planning and completing the project together included Harlea Shultz and Abigail Martinez with FMS; Charley Clark, president of FCCLA; and Cadet Col. Jeremy Sanders, fall semester Air Force Junior ROTC corps commander.
