This Way to Forms

Forms is the Microsoft program that we will be using to take all our class questionnaires, to complete our preparedness rubric and to take our unit tests.  You can access forms by locating the section on my web page that corresponds to what you need to accomplish and there will always be a link that will take you directly to the Forms program.
Once there, you will need to log on with your Microsoft log in which is:
The first initial of your first name followed by your last name and then @commack.k12.ny.us
Remember, you must include the number with your name if you were assigned one.  A number means that someone else in the school district has exactly the same name as you....so one or both of you has been assigned a number so that the system can tell you apart.  
Then you will need to imput your network password which really isn't a password but a number.  
If you forget your password, you can ask a parent to look it up for you by going to your student profile on the Parent Portal.
If you are having difficulty with gaining access to Forms....try back at a later time, as it sometimes is not working properly.

Food Labels and Ingredients

chef's hat Prior to each scheduled lab, all ingredients that will be used in the lab will be made available for the student to examine.  Students with food or ingredient sensitivities and allergies or special dietary needs are encouraged to use a cell phone to take pictures of the food labels prior to the lab.  Parents are asked to review the label contents and contact Miss Sigloch should you have any questions or concerns.  It should be noted that while it is "fun" for a student to taste what is prepared, many students take home what is made and the learning is in the experience and cooperative nature of the lab activities.

FACS in the MYP

The FACS curriculum here at CMS fits perfectily into the Middle Years Program, MYP.  Our hands on, cooperative activities, allow for creative freedom and student immersion into the Design Cycle. Student  learning potential expands and successes multiply as the student gains experience in using the  Learner Profile Traits to complete design challenges.  Many CMS students are very familiar with the MYP essential "concepts-words-techniques,"  like; Statement of Inquiry, conceptual question, or reflection.  These and others are always reinforced and reviewed as units progress.
Four critical  parts of the MYP framework are the 
Statement of Inquiry and its surrounding framework, 
the Learner Profile Traits or attributes,
the Approaches to Learning Skills,  
and of course,
the Design Cycle.

Technology and FACS

 Family and Consumer Sciences students will be immersed in a technology based Career Exploration experience, using a program called Naviance.  At each grade level, the FACS teachers, together with the Guidance teachers, will lead students though age appropriate career interest investigations so that early career awareness can be ignited.
