Greek Mythology (Ella)

Note: This class was added after the blog was initially published.

In this Greek Mythology class, we will dive into some of the most fascinating stories of Classic Greek Mythology while asking philosophical questions and analyzing whether or not a story has a moral or modern significance.  Along with that, we will be learning about the history of Greece and Rome from the Trojan War to the Roman Empire.

We will watch movies that relate to mythology and judge them on their accuracy and relevance.

Please note that this class is open to middle and high school students.  You do not need to have taken my previous mythology class to participate.

There will be a small to moderate amount of homework.

Writing Group (Sadie)

Do you like writing but don’t have the time? Have you wanted to create a writing piece but procrastinate? This is the class for you! This class will be fairly simple; we will gather synchronously to share what we are working on and write in class together, with optional sharing at the end. I will bring in writing prompts and games, but for the most part you will be setting and accomplishing your own writing goals while checking in with everyone on your progress and giving each other feedback! It’ll be a lot of fun, and a great opportunity to hold yourself accountable for your creativity. Come write with me!

Homework: No outside work.

 

Baking with Mara and Zoe!! (Mara)

Do you miss Mara bringing in treats at the start of the day and then not getting to have any because they were all gone before the first slot?  And do you miss Zoe blocking the pathway at dismissal because she wanted hugs? If the answer to both of those is yes, then this is the class for you. Every day we will bake a new treat including Mara’s chocolate chip coconut cake, Amy’s vegan chocolate chip cookies, and much more. We will have lots of fun sharing pictures of baked goods and music  If you are interested but have dietary restrictions let me know.

 Materials: Electric handheld mixer or stand mixer, cookie cutters, rolling pin, piping tips and bags, and baking ingredients (list provided a week ahead of time).

 

 

Required texts/materials: Students will be responsible for obtaining their own texts/materials. Materials should be procured by: The day of class each week.

Power to the People (Anya)

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

This class is going to be a mix of protest history, and learning about what’s going on right now both locally and on a larger scale in terms of demonstrations and protests. We will cover some BLM, LGBTQ+, Women’s rights, and Indigenous celebration/rights focused protests through things like YouTube vids, podcasts, guests, etc… I (Anya) acknowledge that I am a white/able-bodied/cisgendered person who cannot speak to the experiences of people in communities I do not fit into in the US. That’s why it’s really important to me to have POC, LGBTQ+, Indigenous, female identified, etc.. guest speakers who can speak to those perspectives. Our hope is that this will be a chill space where people feel comfortable enough to ask questions and learn through mistakes. If you’re open to come and join us, we’d love to have you!

The class will be tailored to your level and interests. You will learn basic spanish conversation skills while exploring a new culture, through hands-on activities, games, music and more….

 

Los esperamos!

 

Music Show and Tell (Oscar)

Endorsed by the great Liana Green I bring you the classic PSCS Music Show & Tell experience. For veteran students this will be the same class you know and love. For new students or those of you who just need a reminder, this class is very much as the name describes. Each week everyone will bring in a song based on a prompt (a song you find moving, a song without lyrics, etc).  We’ll spend the entirety of class time listening to everyone’s music; thus, Music Show and Tell.
