Welcome!

You have reached the website for the Family & Consumer Sciences (FCS) Classroom with Mrs. Moshier.
"What is Family & Consumer Sciences," you say?...

It was previously known as Home Economics, but not anymore!  The field of FCS has evolved over time and has been in existence for more than 100 years.

According to the American Association of Family & Consumer Sciences, it is "the comprehensive body of skills, research, and knowledge that helps people make informed decisions about their well being, relationships, and resources to achieve optimal quality of life. The field represents many areas, including human development, personal and family finance, housing and interior design, food science, nutrition, and wellness, textiles and apparel, and consumer issues."

In the state of Pennsylvania and at Oswayo Valley School District, FCS focuses on all areas specified in the state standards.  We spend the most time studying nutrition, food science, personal and family finance, and human development.  We also spend time studying consumer issues and interior design.
