Ellen Norman Know Your Teacher Ellen Norman first came to P-T School as a student teacher in the Social Science department in the spring of 1977. "I was amazed and pleased that this very spirited school was quite like Granite High School where I attended school." We are glad Miss Norman felt at home here, because she came back this fall as a regular faculty member. Miss Norman, an honor graduate of OSU, has a varied schedule, teaching American History, Psychol- ogy, seventh grade Civics, and Year Book. "I chose the Social Science area because I felt that these subjects encourage students to think for themselves more so than most other disciplines," stated Miss Norman. She added, "The most rewarding aspect of teaching is helping students realize their own potential." Many hobbies fill Miss Norman's spare time. She likes swimming, rappelling, water skiing, reading, sew- ing and racquet ball. She is a member of Kappa Delta Pi, Phi Kappa Phi, and was on the President's and Dean's Honor Rolls. Miss Norman is a member of the Church of Christ. On one subject we could not pin Miss Norman down. She pleaded the fifth amendment when we asked her how she felt about paddlings.

Spacemen visit 5th by Mrs. Janice DeMoss Two spacemen, calling themselves Hertron and Kronaton, appeared in Mrs. DeMoss' Social Studies class last week to help the class complete their study of American culture. Each class member was to bring one thing to show the visitors which represents our cul- ture. Items brought included an iron, footballs, radios, spoons and forks, model cars and planes, jewelry, American flags, the Bible, clothes and many others. Each classmate then explain- ed to the visitors how this item is used and how it represents our culture. The items so baffled the visitors that they asked, "What is a football? Is it something to eat? How does it show American culture? Please demonstrate." The spacemen were quite friendly though and later themselves as our own Scott Irwin from Mrs. DeMoss' class and Cody Cundiff from Mrs. Kastl's class. Both classes had a good time and learned much i : i : about what is W( culture, not to they learned aboUt communicate with men. P.T Juniors place for their new class The day for which many juniors had been waiting for 11 years arrived last Thursday when Mr. and Mrs. John Gorton came to P-T High to sell class rings to the juniors. work for JostenS Company. The juniors are midst of a campaign. We encourage wishes to magazine or subscription to junior before Money made on will be used "The rings are in the price range of $56 to $80, but they can run slightly higher if the student wants extras add- ed," stated the couple who Okla. and re
