Welcome to the Family and Consumer Sciences Department at Harper Park Middle School. I am excited that you will be part of our learning experiences this semester. This course is designed to develop responsible and positive attitudes relative to the students’ role in society. Students will explore concepts and practice skills which focus on citizenship, personal development, clothing, and food management.
Family and Consumer Sciences support the related Virginia Standards of Learning (SOLs) for English, social studies, mathematics, science and technology. Through lab experiences and simulated activities, your child will have a unique opportunity to achieve and learn using higher order thinking. Emphasis on writing skills and reading strategies will be incorporated to meet the course objectives.
There is an $20.00 per year lab fee to cover supplies for projects done in class. Payment may be made by cash or check in exact amounts. Please note that change may not be availavble. Checks should be made payable to Harper Park Middle School. Please send cash or check in an envelope labeled with your child’s name and class block.
I look forward to working with you and your child this year as we meet life’s challenges in school, work and at home. Your support and encouragement are greatly appreciated. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I can be reached by phone at 571-252-2820 or by e-mail.
