MS Mythology (Ella Muelen)

Note: This class is open to middle school students only.

If you love stories, you will enjoy my class.  When I’m talking about stories, I’m not only talking about reading a book.  I’m talking about watching a movie, watching a TV show, listening to an audiobook, listening to a podcast and even good old fashioned human to human conversations.  These are all wonderful ways to enjoy a good story.  In my mythology class, we will explore stories from the ancient Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, and Norse people.  We will watch movies that tie into these myths.  We will then critique the story for accuracy.  We will research ancient myths and explore questions like: What makes a character a hero?  How is God defined in mythology?  The class will have a moderate amount of homework, but all of it will be manageable.  Please come and enjoy some fun myths with me.

Student Leadership Class (Amy and TSam)

Do you want to learn about who you are and how that impacts you as a leader in our community? Do you want to explore various leadership styles? Do you want to be a part of understanding how to create and support a culture of belonging at PSCS? Do you want to work on projects like creating a student government at PSCS and other community building activities? Then this is the place for you.

This class focuses on who you are as a leader, different strategies for leadership, different styles of leadership, working on various projects that are student driven, and really digging deep into what it means to be a school that cares about everyone feeling like they belong. Join us as we continue our journey in exploring all of these topics.
