The Miles Career and Technical Education (CTE) Project of the Week is “Donut Bully.” Members of the Family and Community Services class, Josy Mata and Mckynzie Steward, wanted to raise awareness about cyberbullying. They made a large donut shaped poster for students to pledge to refrain from being a cyber bully and to get help for victims of cyber bullies. They also helped make students aware of the problem by playing Kahoot, an online quiz game where students use their phones to answer questions about cyber bullying. Projects in the Family and Consumer Science class are designed and carried out by the students.
As members of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America, FCCLA, Josy and Mckynzie entered their project in the Spotlight on Projects event at the region meeting in February. They placed second and the project will be entered in the state meeting in April.
