This course was created for students who are interested in exploring areas of Family and Consumer Science.
Classroom activities and lab experiments will be based on the following topics:
Home Care and Safety
Food Preparation and Healthy Living
Clothing Care and Sewing
Minor Repairs and Wood Shop
Home Economics offers students the opportunity to develop practical life skills while exploring individual interests and different career possibilities.
This course also fosters academic achievement as students will apply reading, writing, mathematics, scientific reasoning, problem solving, and communications skills towards each activity.
This course is for students who are interested in developing healthy financial habits at a young age.
Using principles from Dave Ramsey's Foundations in Personal Finance, students will learn how to avoid debt, budget with intention, invest early, and build personal wealth so they can live generously.
With Dave Ramsey's guidebook, the curriculum provides the resources to facilitate students' learning and set strong, life-long budgeting habits.
Students will learn and practice activities that promote physical, mental, and social growth.
For example, students might play soccer, pickle ball, tennis, frisbee golf, and corn hole during one session.
They will be challenged mentally and physically to develop strategies and techniques that will enable them to better compete in worthwhile recreational sports and activities.
With limited athletic opportunities offered to our 5th and 6th grade students on campus, this is a great way for Middle School students to be physically active after school.
