^ DEPARTMENT HIGHLIGHTS


MATH FACTS


The Math Club has had a great start, with guest speakers including Dr. Sean Hoynes showing students how mathematics is used in calculating air flow in the lungs, blood pressure, and oxygen content on the blood among many topics and Mr. Fred Russo, who gave a brief history of computers and discussed the uses of mathematics in technology and computer based fields.

^ FOREIGN LANGUAGE NOTES


The Foreign Language Department welcomed Mrs. Hsiupei Wang as our Chinese teacher this year. Mrs. Wang is teaching Chinese III, and also teaches Chinese at North Olmsted High School. We also welcome back Class of 2005 graduate and new French teacher, Miss Alana Caraboolad. Miss Caraboolad is currently teaching French II and serving as co-advisor of the French Club. Miss Caraboolad is a graduate of the University of Akron, and spent last fall teaching English in France. We are incredibly excited to welcome her to the “other side!”

Spanish and French students are looking ahead to the summer when they will be traveling abroad on two separate trips. Miss Vicki Kellar will lead a group of Spanish students to Spain in June, and Mrs. Kelli Izzo will lead a group of French students to France, Monaco, and Italy in June as well. Bon voyage and buena suerte!

German teacher Mrs. Christina Potter led a group of German students on a trip through Germany and Austria that past summer. The students were able to use their language skills in a real life context and experience German culture in the most authentic settings. Joined by German teachers Mrs. Luci Jordan and Mrs. Barbra Spasic, the group truly enjoyed their time among the castles and mountains of Germany and Austria!


^ SCIENCE SPECTRUM



  • The Honors Physics students read the national best seller A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson. The AP students explored a number of computer-aided labs, designed their own experiments, and designed myth buster style lab investigations. In November the Physics classes explored the science of a bed-of-nails. The culminating activity was a “smashing” demonstration. During the second semester, the physics students will design and build balsam wood structures and egg drop devices.




  • The physics students welcomed John Agostinelli (University of Toledo) to the physics lab during 1st semester. He introduced the students to the various fields of engineering. Physics students also made mousetrap powered cars.




  • Forensic students studied decomposition rates with a chicken carcass, analysed blood spatter patterns and determined age, race and gender based on skeletal remains.




  • Some CPE Science students created element baby books.




  • Chemistry students made crystal holiday ornaments as one of the labs they participated in this year.




  • Biology II used classic conditioning to train their classroom animals to respond in a certain way to a stimulus. They received excellent advice from Mel McGrath, Animal Behaviorist/Trainer in how to improve their animals’ behavior.




  • Some Biology students created self-sustaining ecosystems and vertebrate/invertebrate collections.




  • Anatomy students finished the quarter by dissecting fetal pigs.




  • Biotech students created a living machine which, after 5 months, is still a self-sustaining ecosystem.



^ MARKETING EDUCATION &

DECA, an Association for Marketing Students


Welcome to Marketing Education! This course will prepare you for a career in marketing or business. Students are required to participate in all aspects of the Marketing Education Program. The program includes class instruction and DECA activities for junior students; and class instruction, DECA activities, and the addition of supervised on-the-job training for senior students. Currently, over half of our nation’s workers are employed under the broad scope of the marketing umbrella. Projections for future employment see the number of positions rising and employment needs for our graduates at the premium.


Congratulations to Mikaila Keaton for being elected DECA class president!


We are looking forward to District Competition February 3rd and State Competition March 18th and 19th. Continue checking our class website for updated information.

ENGLISH


This April and May English 9 and 10 students from Lyssa Stonitsch, Alisa Bartel, Kelly Smalley, Kelly Rose, Kim Craigs, and Meghann Redds classes will participate in week-long Shakespearean workshops with the Great Lakes Theater Festival. After reading Romeo and Juliet and Othello, students will perform the play under the direction of a team of professional actors. In October, English 11 students from Mrs. McKnight and Mr. Lackeys classes participated in a similar program after reading Arthur Millers “The Crucible”. This is Strongsvilles 16th year of participation in the Great Lakes Theater Festival residency program.


^ SOCIAL STUDIES


The Social Studies Department is proud to announce that for the first time, SHS participated in the American Legion’s Americanism and Government Test. This was administered as a pilot program to students in Mrs. Wakefield’s and Mrs. Papish’s government classes and Mr. Tumino’s senior-level social studies classes participated. Five students were awarded U.S. Savings Bonds from the Berea Unit 91. They were Eric Bode, Kay-Lee Cangelosi, Mike Kline, Michael Meldon, and Hannah Smith. Meldon’s score was high enough to move on to the district level. We will keep you posted on his progress!


The Social Studies Department is once again proud to announce it is advising the Academic Challenge and Brain Game Teams, under the direction of Mrs. Wakefield and Mr. Tumino. The Brain Game competition was taped on Saturday, January 22, 2011 in Columbus. The Academic Challenge Team will do battle with Brunswick and Riverside on Saturday, February 26, 2011 at WEWS News Channel 5 in Cleveland. This year’s Academic Challenge Team includes: Seniors Sam Blankenship, Divya Raj, and Shriya Srinvasan. The Brain Game team consists of Seniors Brian Cook, Mudd Hussain, Junior Bristee Das, and Sophomore Carter Frazee. Come root for our students!


Mr. Stanley’s Honors Psychology class had several real-life psychologists speak to their class. SheaLynne Bause, spoke to the class in October regarding clinical psychology and Sandra McPherson spoke to the group in September on the area of forensic psychology. Mr. Sack and Mr. Slovick had a guest speaker from Bryant and Stratton College to speak to their economics students about financial independence. Law Enforcement Officer, Kevin Piazza, again returned to SHS to address the government students from Mr. Cook’s, Mrs. Papish’s, Mrs. Wakefield’s, and Mr. Davenport’s classes about aspects of Ohio law.


All sophomore students were engaged this semester in the Pro-Ohio program to measure their readiness for the OGT exam to be proctored in the spring. This computer based program provides enrichment and intervention where appropriate and provides classroom teachers with feedback about their students’ progress. Mr. Genther’s Sociology classes were able to apply what they have learned in class through their involvement in a community service project to help the needy. Mr. Tumino’s Psychology classes were again involved in several simulations that involved using chocolate chip cookies to figure out mean, median, and mode and oranges to simulate brain surgery. Mr. Sack and Mr. Stanley had their economic students involved in a stock market simulation where students “bought” and “sold” stocks to learn about the volatility of the stock market, while Mrs. Jordan’s U.S. History students were busy creating original editorial and political cartoons.


This school year all juniors will have the opportunity to hear speakers from the Ohio Bureau of Investigation. The agents are going over the laws and making good choices in life.


Many of our Government students also are having the opportutnity to hear members of the United States Marshal Service. This is a practical application of the academic opportunity in their Government classes.


Economics classes will be having speakers from local banks on the loan process and how that has changed in recent years.

^ Art Ambassadors

The excellent reputation of the SHS Art Department made it possible for our art students to participate in an influential program at the Cleveland Museum of Art for the eighth year. The Program called the Art Ambassadors helps our students participate in philanthropic work in our community along with other school districts from a variety of different locations. The Art Department would like to thank the Strongsville Chamber of Commerce, Strongsville Arts, Strongsville Gifted and Talented, along with the funding of the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Women League who provided grants to fund this program. The purpose of the Art Ambassador program is to involve high school students in the events and the day to day operation of an internationally known art museum. Students in return, think of their own ways to give back to the community. Strongsville Art Ambassadors worked at “Day at the Chalet” and will again work at the Cleveland Museum of Art Community Day held on Sunday April 30, 2011. As Ambassadors, students learn how to give tours at the museum, improve their knowledge of art history and artistic techniques, learn public speaking techniques, work together in groups, appreciation diversity and design philanthropic events. The following students represent SHS as Master Art Ambassadors this year: Gloria Collins, Michelle Janosky, Danielle Keating, Alex Long, Maia Maytas, Kaylee McClure, Alison McGhee, Amy Monnius, Jessica Reese, Emily Specht, Christina Thomas, Alicia Weninger and Emily Williams.

^ INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC DEPARTMENT


The Music Department at SHS has been very busy so far this year!


Our bands are now in concert mode after a very successful marching season. The marching band was very fortunate to have donations made so we could travel to our away games this year. Our season was a huge success! We topped off 2010 with a trip to Florida (funded by students and parents) a parade in the Magic Kingdom and a halftime performance at the Outback Bowl in Tampa Florida. We are now working toward our performances at OMEA large group contest which will be held at Strongsville High School on March 18 & 19.

^ SHS CLUBS


DRAMA CLUB NEWS


The Thespian season began this year with a challenging production of the Shakespeare classic, Romeo and Juliet. This version was set in San Francisco in 1967 in an effort to highlight the universality of the themes. The students worked incredibly hard to create a theatrical experience for the audience and did an outstanding job. Juliet was played by senior and seasoned actress, Mallory King, while Romeo was played by newcomer and freshman, Spencer Kilgore. Additional strong performances were contributed by seniors Ryan Gates, Brian Capuder and Sarah Evans. Strongsville is also thrilled to announce the coming of state competition, where three of Strongsville’s finest performers, senior Scott Miese, and juniors Lauren Macatangay and Terry Hugo, have been invited to participate in the All Ohio State Play. Break a Leg to all!!


S.A.D.D.


The local SADD chapter of Strongsville High School has been busy. Like past years, we started the school year with our typical business agenda to attend to, the planning of upcoming events and a social calendar that is now underway. To start the year off, SADD took on the task of making sure Homecoming would be a safe, fun-filled event. We once again made our anti-drunk driving campaign with posters and announcements to increase awareness. Next on the agenda was Red Ribbon Week. Posters, red ribbons, and wristbands filled the hallways, delivering the friendly message; “Drug free is the way to be”. During the month of December, SADD constructed and strung up the ‘Chain of Life’, which was made up with a link from each student. This symbolized that one person’s destructive decision could result in a break in the chain. In the months to come we will be preparing for fundraisers, our anti-smoking month, the Spring Fling dance, and our annual Prom festivities. SADD will continue to do everything in their power to keep the inner walls at Strongsville positive, safe, and drug free.
