Parent Letter

February 9, 2018

Dear Parents and Students:

It is such a pleasure to welcome each of you to Family and Consumer Science. My name is Mrs. S. Collins and I will be your Family and Consumer Science teacher for the coming school year.  We are looking forward to a year of great progress here at Blackville-Hilda High School.

This is my thirty-second year of teaching and I absolutely love what I do.  These are the subjects that I teach, Family and Consumer Science I, Food and Nutrition I and II, Family Living I and II, and Fashion, Fabric, and Design I and II. All of the classes I teach are electives and will count as a full credit course. I am looking forward to helping my students acquire skills that they will be able to use throughout their life-time.

It will take students, parents and teacher working together in order for our students to have a successful year. Please take a few minutes to review the procedures, expectations, rules, and general course information that will be necessary for each student and parent to be familiar with in order for us to have a successful semester.

 I am available after school on Tuesdays from 3:30 – 4:30 pm for academic assistant. Please feel free to call our office to set up an appointment to meet with me if you have any questions or concerns. You may reach me by calling our school secretary to set up a meet. The telephone number is 803.284.5700. I can be reached by email at
