PSYCHOLOGY CLUB MEETS
Psi Mu Sigma, CHS’s psychology club, held its first meeting of the school year this week. Psi Mu Sigma, which is open only to present and former psychology students, began planning elections of club officers and scheduling events for the year ahead.
One of the interesting activities the club did last year involved raising awareness of neuroscience by making “brain hats,” which club members wore during lunch as they handed out information about brain health, concussions and other facts about how our brains function.
Also, club members watched and discussed several psychology-based videos — such as “Happy,” “Temple Grandin” and “The Three Faces of Eve” — and researched areas of interest. Always welcoming new members, Psi Mu Sigma meets Wednesdays during lunch in Mr. Steinle’s classroom, Room 250.
TRAVEL TO EUROPE
Students (and their parents) have an opportunity to visit Austria, Germany and Switzerland during the summer of 2016! Please attend a meeting at 6 p.m. in room 126 at the high school on Tuesday to receive more information. If you have any questions, call Lynette Gardner at 283-1658.
TRAVEL TO ENGLAND
Stonehenge, Buckingham Palace, and professional shows in the original Globe Theatre: All this on the London trip led by Ms. Fleming and Mrs. Koop this June. For more information about this trip, there will be a meeting in Ms. Fleming’s room, 169, on Tuesday at lunch.
Lip Sync auditions will be 2 p.m. Sept. 29 in the upstairs cafeteria. Make sure you get your groups of no more than six people together. Your acts can be up to four minutes long, and don’t forget to bring a copy of your music to auditions. Make sure your group’s routine is poppin’ because we are only going to be accepting 10-12 groups this year. We look forward to seeing what you guys have to offer this year.
The monthly SkillsUSA meeting has been moved to Wednesday at lunch in the Culinary Restaurant upstairs. Membership deadlines and fundraising projects will be discussed. All members need to attend.
