Hello and welcome to 8th grade Life and Career Planning page.
  Before we left, we were working on the textiles/sewing unit.  We worked on learning the parts of the sewing machine, how to sew straight lines and turn corners, and create a bowl cozy.  I will continue to provide resources to keep your mind growing.  Please remember that all resources and materials provided are OPTIONAL.  If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at schooltm@pwcs.edu.  Thanks!
