You CAN do chemistry! Whether it comes easily to you or not, don't ever give
up! For those of you who "aren't science or math people," those days are over!
Come talk to me whenever necessary - and don't let yourself fall behind! I'm
in school by 7 am daily so come on in for extra help! (an ounce of
prevention is always worth more than a pound of cure) I am looking forward to
a great year with YOU!
I serve as the adviser for Bible Club, which will meet on Wednesdays after school
in my room (Room 141) beginning on Wednesday, Sept 14. Our first event will be
See You At The Pole, which is a national event where students, staff, and community
members join together at their school's flagpole to pray. See You At The Pole at 7 am
or at 2:30 pm on Wed., Sept 28th! Bible Club also sponsors other events throughout
the year so stay tuned - all are welcome to attend - we would love to see you!
I serve as the adviser for Science League (Chemistry II), which is a competition among
over 120 high schools in NJ. Once a month from January - April, we send 4 students
to compete in Chemistry II by taking a 25 question Multiple Choice test covering various
topics each month. The top 2 scores serve as our team score, and students can also be
ranked in the state individually. Before each exam I hold practices after school each week starting
around November and all AP Chemistry competitors take a qualifying test. The top 4 scores
qualify to represent our school at the Science League competition that month. Each month
there us a new qualifying test, so it may not be the same 4 students who go to the competition
each month. Schools receive a plaque for placing in the top 10 in the state, and all of our plaques
over the years are hanging in the chemistry hallway. Students individually receive a plaque if they
place in the top 10% in NJ, and almost each year we have had at least 1 student receive an individual
plaque. Our school also sponsors Science League Teams for Biology I (Mrs. Pfirrmann),
Biology II (Ms. Lockwood), Chemistry I (Mr. Krip), HS Physics (Mr. Quakenbush), and
Physics C (Mrs. Casazza).
