Psych Club Kick-Off Meeting THIS Friday!

Psych Club will host its kick-off meeting for the 2016-17 school year on Friday, Sept 2! Psych Club meets monthly on the 1st Friday of each month, and anyone with an interest in psychology is welcome to join.

One of our first tasks will be to vote on a club t-shirt design for the year so we can place the order as soon as possible (and get our shirts by the time of the October monthly meeting). You can preview the design options below. Votes will be cast electronically, so please have your Chromebook or device with you during the meeting if you wish to vote. 

Because of the size of our group, I am hosting meetings during BOTH Lunch A and Lunch B. I'll set things up for a "drop in" style meeting where you arrive, complete the tasks you need to (e.g., signing in, getting info about upcoming events, voting on t-shirt designs, etc.), and then you can be on your way. I'm hoping that will ease congestion and allow everyone to participate!

There will also be door prize drawings held at 12:30 and 12:45, so plan to be present during at least one of those times if you want a chance to win fabulous psych stuff!

Strive for a 5's Have Arrived!

Workbooks are here!
If you ordered your own (personal) copy of the Strive for a 5 workbook during textbook pick-up, it has now arrived at school! You are welcome to come pick it up (see note on available times below) before the start of classes, OR I can get it to you on Sept 1.

I will be available Thursday, Aug 25 from 9 AM to 3:30 PM to hand out materials, as I will be working in my room during that time. After that, I will post available hours on the course blog (daily) since meetings will mean my availability will be hit or miss.

Friday, August 26: 1 PM to 4:30 PM
Monday, August 29: 3 PM to 5 PM

When picking up your purchased copy, please kindly keep the following in mind:

  • If you were issued a rental (school) copy of the Strive for a 5 workbook, please bring it with you so we can swap it out. That way I can remove the item from your list of issued class materials and you won't end up having to locate it again at the end of the year. That would be no fun.
  • If you have not yet paid for the copy you ordered, please bring payment with you. Cash or checks (made payable to Chippewa Falls Senior HS) are accepted, and the cost is $30.
