FCS: More Than a Class
Family Consumer Science (FCS) class is an elective that high school students can take. Students learn the basics of cooking, nutrition, sewing, design, child development, and home management. This semester FCS has six students.
One of the fun aspects of FCS is making things to give to others. Before Christmas, the class made non-sew quilted ornaments that will be available for purchase at the Benefit Auction in March. The students recently made pillowcases for Royal Family Kids’ Camp.
Mrs. Janice Stuhmer, the FCS teacher, said, “We will also be working on some small charity quilts and some simple clothing items for Mission Heart.”
Senior Janie Mousel said, “FCS has been a really fun class and has taught me a lot of everyday skills. And sewing a straight line is a lot harder than it looks!”
FCS class not only about acquiring skills and knowledge, but it’s about helping others with those skills, and that makes it special.
