Students have just presented their visuals for their

Foods and Nutrition-

Students have provided a meal for the Becker family and will
providing a meal for the Stride family as well. Students had
during the Halloween season with each carving their own
pumpkins using
detailed carving. The students than displayed their pumpkins
the lunch time for all the student body to view. They than
creative recipes for the roasting of their seeds and each
class shared
with each other.

Students enjoyed a unit of "Fair Foods". They were able to
make deep
fat fried dill pickles, snickers, cookies, mozzarella cheese
corn dogs, corn nuggets and funnel cakes. Good thing this is
the only
time we use the deep fat fryer. Now that we have that fun
lab done,
on to healthier cooking. The Thanksgiving season has both
planning a huge meal. The classes will be preparing a noon
meal where
all 17 students will be able to enjoy the great traditional

Medical Leave
Act, and ART(assisted reproductive technologies

FCS 7-

Students have just finished up on their "Egg Baby"
projects, where
they were responsible for taking care of an egg or eggs for
a 4 day
period. Let's just say some were not cut out for
parenthood quite
yet. Some students left their eggs at the daycare after PE
class and
that meant an overnight stay in the FCS room, some forgot to
them back to school. Good thing they didn't have a real
baby! We are
now focusing on toddlers and preschoolers. Students just had
a little
golden book book review and presentations. We will focus on
activities and characteristics of each of these age groups.

Pictured is the 7th grade class with their "kids".
