The Blue Apron is a student-run full-service restaurant, open Tuesday & Wednesday from 11:00 – 1:00 pm.
In the French cuisine, the color of an apron worn by the staff denotes the level of mastery. The Blue Apron is known for “student in training.” Our students are receiving both high school and college credit while enrolled in the program.
It's beginning to look a lot like the end of the semester!!! Fashion and Textile students are beginning to finish their PJ pants and are ready to stay cozy and warm this winter. Mrs. Carmichael's students have learned so many valuable skills this semester. One student said the skill she has had to practice the most is patience!!! Something we can all use a bit more of. What a wonderful "sewmester" it has been!
Fashion & Textiles have been learning about the difference between woven and knit fabrics. They have learned to knit and weave and the projects they have produced are as individual as the students. It has been a fun way to express creativity while learning new skills.
Kierra, who is taking Fashion & Textiles this semester, saw a need, had an idea and enriched our school community this week. After a recent visit to the nurse, Kierra found that there were no heating pads available to students. She decided to create reusable bags that can be heated and used to reduce pain. Nurse Megan was thankful for this generous donation. Thanks, Kierra, for enriching the lives of others at WACC/WCHS!!!
The Family & Consumer Sciences Advisory Council composed of many community members & WACC staff, met this week for a fall planning discussion session. Students in current FACS classes were also able to attend and showcased projects they are currently working on.
