Mrs. Young's 1st Quarter Family and Consumer Science Class Donate Quilt 
Each 8th grade student constructed a 9 square quilt block, then cast a vote for where they wanted the quilt top donated upon it's completion.  They majority of the votes went to the Mother of Mercy Axillary.  Four students pictured represent the 8th grade classes.

Dine in Day
Family and Consumer Science Dine In Day was Saturday December 3rd. Mrs. Young's FACS students were asked to eat a meal at home with those they loved and email a picture to her.  Here are a few pictures she received.  Last year Governor Mark Dayton proclaimed every December 3rd Family and Consumer Science Day as a way to honor the birthday of Ellen Swallow Richards, the founder of the home economics movement.  Remember meal time is the most important part of a child's day; eat together as a family and enjoy the conversation!
