FACS Course Descriptions
Advanced FACS -
This is a one semester course where students will increase their knowledge of basic life-skills that will prepare them for life on their own. The 8th grade course contains advanced FACS curriculum. The five units of study that students will explore in this course are financial literacy, foods and nutrition, sewing 101, interior design 2.0, and life management. This curriculum will give students an idea of the FACS courses offered in the high schools. I look forward to meeting all of you soon!

FACS Weekly Message
**Please either check my website or the Infinite Campus Message Center for our FACS weekly email! The purpose of this message is to inform students and parents on what unit we will be studying for that week and what projects or assignments we will be completing.
Advanced FACS - Week of August 26th
This week in Advanced FACS, we will be continuing on in the Financial Literacy Unit. Students have completed the Banzai program and we are now learning about debit/credit/prepaid cards. Later this week we will be learning about how to write a check and balance a checkbook. Students will complete practice assignments this week for these learning targets. I am looking forward to teaching these concepts to students because these are necessary skills that students will use for the rest of their life! I hope everyone has a great week and please let me know if you have any questions. You may reply to this message or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Intro. to FACS - Week of August 26th
This week in Intro. to FACS, we will be continuing on in the Green Living Unit. Students have completed the introduction assignments and have learned about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. We will be learning about what a carbon footprint is this week and how all of our "stuff" we use and consume is drastically affecting our environment. We will begin our green home project later this week where students will explain ways of how to make their home more earth friendly. I hope everyone has a great week and please let me know if you have any questions. You may reply to this message or email me at email@example.com.
