FCS News is general information that is important for all FCS students to know.
Students in FCS 1 and FCS 2 will be required to provide sewing supplies for projects. If a student wants to purchase an extra project or a paid for hand sewing project instead of doing one of the provided handsewing projects they must have orders into Mrs. Stucker by September 30, 2011.
Please click the links below for the appropriate supply lists for your student. The supply's will be due on November 2, 2011.
FCS 1 Sewing Supply List
FCS 2 Sewing Supply List
Students were given the lists at the beginning of September.
Students will be allowed to use iPod touch, iPad's, SmartPhones, etc. in class periodically. I will not be allowing earbuds to be used in class except for specificed activites, which I will notify students of in advance. Also students are to keep their devices out of site in the hallways (i.e. in pockets or binders) so their devices will be safe. Please review the new information on Electronic Devices in the student handbook
(page 24) or see below.
Students will use electronic communication or data devices only in a manner consistent with instructional and testing activities in the classroom. These devices include, but are not limited to, handheld calculators, PDA's, pagers, cell phones, music playing devices, cameras, and laptop computers. Use of these devices must not violate any district policy or cause classroom disruption nor may they be used in the access, creation, or possession of inappropriate materials (i.e. pornography). Use of electronic devices in the classroom is at the discretion of the teacher. Students who bring any electronic device do so at their own risk - Joint School District No.2 and its schools assume no liability for damage, theft, etc. Videotaping or taking pictures is prohibited on campus unless approved by building administration. If the policies are violated, administrators will determine consequences based on the severity of the incident. Additionally, on the first offense the device may be confiscated until a parent picks it up.
Apps that I plan on using with students will be listed on the bottom of assignments blogs and I'll let students know ahead of time what apps we will use. (All apps will be free.) We will use a lot of QR codes in our assignments so a QR code reader would be the first app students will need in class.
If a student does not have access to their own Electronic Device there will be other means of getting information they will need for their classwork or Mrs. Stucker will provide a device to be used in class.
This is the first assignment for all FCS students.

Students and parents will work together to complete the Welcome to FCS Survey to submit their assignment.
All parents and students have access to PowerSchool, an online system that tracks grades. Please check your PowerSchool account to see you or your student's grade in Mrs.Stucker's class.
There will be hyperlinks on assignments so the worksheets, resources, and other information for assignments can be accessed for make-up or late-work.
(Note: Anything in blue on PowerSchool is a hyperlink with more information about an assignment or a grade. For more information on viewing details through PowerSchool view this PDF file.)
Here is a quick tutorial on how to use PowerSchool to get the maximum information and benefit from it.
