Kasperson Week 15!

 In Forensics, Psychology, Science - 7th Grade, Science - 8th Grade

Good afternoon,

Happy early Thanksgiving! I hope everyone has a wonderful few days off and you’re able to create some fun memories! I am thankful to have the job that I have to teach such an amazing group of students this year. I feel very blessed to have the students I have this year! 


Science Fair/ Stem-fest Updates:


Students will work on their background research for their projects when they return from the short break this weekend. 


Here is a link to the website that gives all necessary information for the Stem-fest/ Science fair. 


A helpful note: Most of these projects will be completed outside of class. They are not designed to be time-consuming or expensive. There will be a few days closer to the deadline in which students can wrap up their projects during class. For any questions, feel free to contact Michelle Tischer at mtischer@santancs.com

Psychology: Students have been learning about various drugs that can alter states of consciousness. Next week they will move on to the next unit!
