    Welcome to the world of Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS), I am looking forward to a wonderful 2019-2020 school year.   In the FACS classes, Students will learn many life skills they will use their entire life. I can't wait for them to jump in and explore all of the opportunities FACS has to offer.
     
    What is FACS?
     
    Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS) is the comprehensive body of skills, research, and knowledge that helps people make informed decisions about their well being, relationships, and resources to achieve optimal quality of life. The field represents many areas, including human development, personal and family finance, housing and interior design, food science, nutrition, and wellness, textiles and apparel, and consumer issues.

    Today’s FCS professionals practice in multiple settings. They are early childhood, elementary, secondary, university/college, and Extension educators, administrators and managers, human service professionals, researchers, community volunteers, business people, and consultants who address the issues most important to our quality of life.
