Welcome to Mr. Turgeon's Class...

Hello Team Clemson!

Here is hoping the 2017-18 school year is going well for you and your families. We have been quite busy this quarter, and the students have been challenged to step up and take more ownership of their learning through an intensive in-class research project based on our reading of "The Diary of Anne Frank". Students have investigated the history and implications of genocide, propaganda, global politics, and the universal them of "coming of age." I have been impressed by their enthusiasm and effort, as well as the maturity in which they approached these difficult and challenging topics.

Additionally, we have also recently completed high school registration and course selection, so the end of their middle school years is coming fast. We have spent a lot of time talking about appropriate class and level selection, study skills, and the general mindset of high school,in comparison to their three years here at Southside. There is definitely a nervous enthusiasm bubbling in our classes.

We are always here to assist in any way we can. Please feel free to contact me or the team with any questions or concerns.

Mr. T
