FAMILY AND CONSUMER SCIENCE
This year our school wide emphasis is on improving reading and math skills, and attendance of students. Working toward this goal, eighth grade students will spend the first six weeks studying life skills that will benefit them in developing positive relationships at home, at school, in the workplace and in the community.
students in the twelve week Family and Consumer Science exploratory are learning basic nutrition and food preparation skills. Reading and following recipe directions, accurate measuring and healthy food and lifestyle choices will be emphasized. Students will demonstrate and apply the skills learned in group situations as they prepare simple food products.
Sixth grade students in the six weeks Family and Consumer Science exploratory will learn basic hand sewing stitches, mending, and they will make two simple sewing projects using the hand sewing skills they have learned. They will also study personal safety and emergency preparedness. Finally, they will learn about table manners, kitchen safety and sanitation, kitchen math and measuring. They will then put these skills into practice to prepare some simple snack foods.
Other events will be added from time to time as students develop their project plans for the year
