Enriching the Lives of our FACS students


on December 7, 2010

The 7th graders have been requested to make some holiday treats for the staff to judge.  The rules are simple…

1. Students must make the treats themselves (sorry mom and dad, grandma and grandpa, aunts and uncles) – This is not for you to complete…  The kiddos may ask for some assistance, but you cannot make them for them…

2. Students must provide a recipe of the treats (candies or cookies).  They cannot be store bought, or come from a box – They must be a homemade recipe.

3.  Treats must be bite sized (no larger than a silver dollar)  There will be lots of treats to be judged and we do not want the staff to get too full…

4. Treats will be judged on appearance, taste and texture.

5.  The top three students willbe awarded with small prizes for their efforts and all students who participate will receive extra credit.  Judging will take place on December 13th and winners will be announced on December 15th on the morning and afternoon announcements.

6.  Treats are due at the beginning of the day on MONDAY December 13, 2010 so that they can be displayed for the teachers.  Please have your name labeled on any containers that need to be returned to your home – We don’t want to lose them.

Directions and information are being sent home with students and a form will need to be filled out by the parents to let us know that the students completed the assignment on their own and washed all of the dishes that were created from the activity.

We look forward to their participation!
