Remote Learning Message:
Hello Parents, Students, and Former Students!
I just want to share a few quick announcements for our Remote Learning time.
1. All students (including 4th Marking Period students) have been added to the appropriate Google Classrooms. Some still need to accept the invitations. Please check your Google Classroom for more details. Email me at email@example.com with any and all questions. All assignments will be assigned on Monday morning and due that Friday, to allow you to plan accordingly. Everyone's situation at home is different and these assignments should allow for easy integration into your daily schedule. They may be turned in earlier if you choose to do so.
2. If you are a former student from earlier this year, please know that I miss your visits and check-ins! If you want some fun recipes or want to share what you've been working on at home, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Always remember that cooking and baking are great stress relievers, especially at times like this. It's also a great activity to bond with your siblings and family.
3. All of the recipes that we make during the time we are in school, are located in the appropriate tabs for each class. If there is somethig you're looking for that you can't find, please send me an email and I will share it with you.
I hope to see you all soon!!
My name is Mrs. Muniz-Fay and I'm your Family and Consumer Sciences teacher here at Christa McAuliffe Middle School. My classes are open to all 8th graders and consist of Foods Fitness and Nutrition and Wellness. I also run the Sewing Club and the Eco-Action Club with Mr. Gliatta, and I help out with various other clubs throughout the year.
During your marking period in Foods Fitness, you will explore life in the kitchen! You will learn how to work safely and cleanly in the kitchen, how to measure, read a recipe, identify and use kitchen equipment, and we will begin to delve into nutrition throughout the marking period.
Nutrition and Wellness
During the next semester, our class will explore the foundations of nutrition, self-care, and how movement benefits the body and mind. We will also delve into food preparation, food and kitchen safety, measuring skills, culinary math, abbreviations, reading a recipe, and making appropriate food choices. Students will learn the importance of cooperation, flexibility, and teamwork.
I've wanted to teach FCS since I was a 7th grader. The day I started 7th grade, I came home from school having decided that I really wanted to teach Family and Consumer Sciences when I grew up. It was a field that I knew all of my students would use on a daily basis for the rest of their lives. I was on a mission to change people's lives for the better. I went to Indiana University of Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh, graduated with high honors, and started my teaching career in North Jersey. I have since moved to Jackson and I am so happy to be here at McAuliffe for my 8th year, changing and inspiring lives everyday. I hope you'll find my classes as valuable as I think you will.
I'm very excited to spend this school year with all of you!
~ Mrs. Muniz-Fay
