two sweing machines and sewing supplies

The CMS family and consumer science program got two new sewing machines and much-needed sewing materials thanks to a grant provided by the Chatham Education Foundation of the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation. FaCS teacher Patricia Velez says that in their upcoming sewing unit, sixth graders will create felt animals, seventh graders will sew pillows, and eighth graders will make cold/hot packs filled with rice, among other activities!
