Family and Consumer Science
Family and Consumer Sciences used to be known asHome Economics. Today, the standards are bit different. There are a variety of classes that a district may operate from grades 7-12. Each district makes its own choices on what classes to offer. Students and parents should contact the counselor at the home school to learn more. Students are not permitted to enroll in FCS classes in other districts.
Norton High School’s FCCLA (Family, Career, Community Leaders of America) members cooked a pancake breakfast for the Schools’ 9th annual Veterans’ Day Program. This year we made over 250 pancakes, and served over 400 links of sausage. The breakfast also included fruit, coffee, tea, juice and milk.
Members arrived bright and early and began work at 7a.m. in our school’s cooking lab. Fourteen members volunteered their time to help with the breakfast. Breakfast was served at 8:30 followed by an assembly to honor our service men and women.
Angie Barnhart is the group’s advisor and a Family and Consumer Sciences Teacher at Norton. The group has Co-Presidents this year, Breanna Hlas and Lexi Combs.
