Items Needed For FACS I Class
The FACS I Class is looking for items to alter and make into new items. We are in need of used sweatshirts any size and men's button down shirts size medium and larger. Check your closets and see if you have some that you no longer wear. We will be creating mittens and aprons from these items. If you have any, you can drop them off at the high school office, or call Carmen Thompson FACS teacher at the school and leave a message. We are also always in need of fabric scraps, thread and notions. Thank You!
"The Southland School District strives to prepare its students to lead fulfilling lives as responsible citizens in today’s society. The learning environment will be inviting, respectful, supportive, inclusive, and flexible for student success. We believe that all learners must become: Inspired learners who are accountable for demonstrating, assessing and directing their present and life-long intellectual growth; Effective communicators who will use verbal, written, artistic and technological forms of communication to give, send and receive information; Productive workers who perform collaboratively and independently to create quality products and services that reflect personal pride and responsibility; Responsible citizens who have a global and multicultural perspective, and who take the initiative for improving the quality of life for self and others; Resourceful thinkers who independently and creatively strive to solve complex problems through reflection, appropriate risk taking, and critical evaluation."
