Time of Opportunity!
For many in educational settings, fall is the start of a new year. After, hopefully, some time of reflection during the summer, fall presents a time of opportunity to start with a clean slate and to implement new ideas with new and returning faces.
Now we find ourselves on the brink of winter and seek to examine whether great opportunities have been embraced with emerging evidence of movement toward accomplishment. The CA-AFCS Leadership collectively wish you much success in your endeavors and look forward to hearing about them as the year continues to unfold. Speaking of opportunity…..
SPREAD THE WORD!
Let everyone in your community know that Wednesday, December 3rd is designated as National Family and Consumer Sciences Day. Families across the United States are encouraged to prepare and eat a healthy meal together on this day. For more information, see http://www.aafcs.org/FCSday/.
To become involved yourself, see http://www.aafcs.org/FCSday/commitment.html.
And then, complete the online sign-up form. It takes a minute or less.
Next check out the great interactive U.S. map to see who else will be “dining in” across the country.
From now until then, look for ways you can promote FCS Day and “Dining In” in some capacity (classes, social media, written articles, etc.).
Finally, plan…prepare….and eat a healthy meal with those closest to you on 12/3. The Twitter hashtag #FCSDAY has some great ideas, such as a yummy vegetable lasagna recipe.
Let’s all get involved in the FCS Day. Together, we will make a statement about the relevance of the FCS profession and its impact on families!
