There are now new classes available to Panther Creek students. During the weeks of February 20 – March 1, PCHS counselors conducted a Curriculum  Fair in which the new courses were explained. The Class registration form details new classes and old classes that have new levels of rigor. In the last year or so classes such as Lessons of Vietnam/ Recent International Affairs have been added. This year classes such as African American history, Health Honors, and more are now available.

Many students were intrigued by the new classes. Teachers who are expected to teach the new courses were asked for a brief description. The African American History course will cover, “colonialism all up until present day African-American history…” There are no prerequisites necessary considering that it is an honors level elective class. The instructor, Mrs. Reid, shared her excitement in teaching about black inventors. The Cyber Security course will cover, “…basic information…we’re going to start with stuff that is readily available and people really don’t have to know much about [cyber security]  to secure their internet presence.” Cyber Security Instructor, Mr. Letts, uses the analogy of “locking doors” to describe the basic security measures that will be taught. The Vietnam teacher, Mr. Thorpe, explained that the thing that interested him most about the class was how the war intersects with the changing of society in the 1960s and 70s. The impact of the war reaches far into many different areas and the class covers these impacts. 

Course registration is available March 4 -28.
