Family & Consumer Sciences
FACS is a one-semester course in sixth and eighth grade. Each course has a different curriculum that provides students with the knowledge to make positive choices, the opportunities to work with others and develop teamwork, the know-how to manage personal resources, and current information regarding safety and good health.
Major topics in sixth grade include interpersonal relationships, environmental issues, child development, clothing and sustainability, and foods and nutrition.
Major topics in eighth grade include financial literacy, interpersonal relationships, college and career planning, clothing and sustainability, and foods and nutrition. This course follows the high school's PCC curriculum and counts as early high school credit for students who complete the course successfully.
Finally, all students, regardless of whether or not they are currently enrolled in a FACS class, are encouraged to join the FACS Club at East Tipp. Throughout the school year, the club will take several opportunities to serve the community and school with babysitting and volunteering for special events. More information about the club is available on the FACS Club page.
