This blog is coming to you live from the O'Leary Cubs Family and Consumer Sciences classroom. It will give parents and students an idea of what is going on in FACS class, post links to cool information, and be a place to comment and ask questions.

This blog will also give out information about Mrs. Hubbard's 7th Grade Prime Time. Look for Prime Time just below and to the left to see what is going on there.

6th grade Super Heros

The 6th graders have finished their locker caddies which have been turning out GREAT!  After finished, students move into creative sewing.  It is amazing what a bit of fabric can be made into.

Note Chicken-Man...  the mask and the cocks comb (the red thing on the top of a rooster) is the remnants of an old jacket that has been cut up a million different times... and still it had a use. He added a beak and the wattle (the red dangly thing on the chin). Brilliant!

I love seeing the creativity of the OMS students come out.  So cool!

Where is the throat plate???? 

This week, students in all 3 grades are learning or reviewing the parts of the sewing machine, sewing machine safety, and then will begin sewing on the machine.  It is an exctiting week!

Sunday, September 16, 2012

Well.. we have started another year. The 6th graders are setteling in and enjoying middle school (mostly) and I think most of them are even getting to all their classes on time! wa-hoo! 

We have been learning about personal development in 6th grade & 7th grade, and learning about STRESS! in 8th grade.

Stress is a matter of perspective... change your perspective and reduce your stress!  Ask your 8th grader about stress relief techniques and how to live a stress free lifestyle.

6th - Supply List

Hey 6th graders!  News about your $6.75...

Your student has started a new Exploratory Elective this week!  His/her group has left Drama and is now in Family and Consumer Sciences.  The 6th graders this year will be making a Locker Caddy to hang in their lockers to use for organization. 

The cost is $6.75 and should be paid by Thursday, Feb 9, 2012.  It is preferable students pay in cash, but checks will be accepted.    

Students should take the cash or check for $6.75 to Mrs. Anderson in the front office.  She will accept money before and after school and during lunch, she will not accept payments in between classes. Mrs. Anderson will give your student a receipt which will need to be turned into me.  No receipt = not paid.  Students will not be able to do sewing project until payment is made. 

We have some students who cannot afford the cost of the project; if your family is interested in donating to a supplies scholarship fund, please let me know. 

Please, if the cost of this project is cannot be provided by our family, please contact me so I can make other arrangements.
