Life and Career Planning

I am so excited to welcome our eighth graders into the world of FACS (Family and Consumer Sciences)! Each quarter will be split between Mrs. Harkins and myself in order to provide your student with the best experience in this course. In this portion of the course, students will gain and demonstrate an understanding of the correlation between education and careers and the effects they have may have on individuals throughout their lives. Students will learn to better understand their roles as a family and community member on a local and global scale while gaining an understanding of finances and budgeting. Students will also participate in a community service activity. I encourage you to explore this site and familiarize yourself and your student with this class and the expectations. Please feel free to contact me with any questions/concerns. Again, welcome!
