Call To Action

In order to increase awareness and gather support for CTE/FACS education, we are embarking on a Career and Technical Education Supporters letter-writing campaign. In the few meetings I have had with Commissioner King he has stated that the future of CTE is in our hands; if we want it to succeed and continue to move forward we must be more vocal and gather support for CTE

It has arrived. Thanks to you and your contributions, we have created the "Student Tested, Teacher Approved" cookbook for the FCS Classroom.  Your copy of the book can be purchased either on a flashdrive (which includes a PDF version as well as editable documents), as a paperback, or both. Click here for a sample. Pre-orders only by using the paypal button below. Includes shipping and handling.

Through a service learning project, the students in the Spring 2014 Apparel Science II (FNES 226) course in the Family, Nutrition, and Exercise Sciences Department at Queens College, CUNY, designed and created 19 handmade children’s dresses. In this course, students learned how to hand sew and machine sew different types of garments as they prepared for a career in fashion, textiles, or teacher education. Under the direction of Professor Jill Mayer, the students decorated the dresses with colorful ribbon and personally tagged each one with a special message. The beautiful dresses were donated to children in need at the Children’s Aid Society in Manhattan.  The Society helps children in poverty to succeed and thrive.
