Welcome to the Family and Consumer Sciences Department at Smart’s Mill Middle School. I am excited that you will be part of our learning experiences this semester. Family and Consumer Sciences Exploratory II emphasizes personal responsiblity for the demands of multiple life roles through hands-on, project-based instruction. Students focus on individual development, maintain their personal environments, apply nutrition and wellness practices, manage consumer and family resources, create textile, fashion, and apparel products, and explore careers related to Family and Consumer Sciences such as child care. Instruction in this course emphasizes science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) concepts, where appropriate.
I look forward to working with you and your child this semester 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 at 571-252-2030 or firstname.lastname@example.org
