Jade's Jottings  – Jerry Thomas School

October 19th, 2014

Dear Parents,

If you have recently moved and you are wondering what elementary school you want to send your child to I recommend Jerry Thomas.This school is a part of Palm Beach County and is located at Jupiter FL on the corner of Tony Penna. It goes through grades k-5.It is a public school and it has excellent teachers! For kindergarten ALL of the teachers are nice. The same for first grade. For second grade there are many wonderful teachers in second grade. This is the last year before FCAT. Your children will learn to regroup. The next grade is third grade, it is very different from second grade.Your children that are in third grade NEED to learn their times tables! Do not wait for your children to learn their times tables! It will catch up to your children in everyday! This should be the year where they learn their times tables 1-11 you can do flash cards, tests, or writing over and over. Your children will most likely be stressed out about FCAT but it is incredibly easy! A passing score is 3.5. Then comes fourth grade. Mr.Seal is the best teacher you can get, fourth grade is similar to third except for a little bit more homework and the FCAT writes. The FCAT writes is in February, around that time your children will be very stressed out! I had to write a timed writing every day before the FCAT. Only the last 2weeks. Moving on to fifth grade, it is a VERY hard grade! There is much more homework, harder work, and more demanding teachers. Your children will probably be feeling a lot a stress at this time. There is also safety patrol. During fourth grade your children need to be on their best behavior and turn in their homework.Your children need to get A,B,C the moment they get a D they are off safety patrol.

(Report Card) make sure that your children make every terrific tiger time if a safety patrol misses 2 they are off safety patrol.We have a trip to Washington every year but only for safety patrols.There are also different clubs like chorus (only for fifth graders), teachers of tomorrow (fourth and fifth grade only), Student council, recyclable club, and much more! We also have specials which is: physical education (P.E), art, music, computer lab, media, and guide. Our principal Ms. Work is understanding and I am positive she would love to talk to you. Jerry Thomas also has speech. If you end up choosing Jerry Thomas I bet you will be very impressed!

High Schools in the Area

October 19th, 2014

Hey, Sam Lichtenstein here at Sam’s Corner, here with another blog! This time I am going to talk about the high schools in the area. So, if you just moved down here and you’re nervous that your teen won’t be able to find a good school to go to or won’t fit in, you’ve got another thing coming for the better!

First off, we’ve got your basic home schools, Jupiter High and Dwyer High. These may be just your simple friendly neighborhood high schools at first glance, but actually, they offer a lot of wonderful courses such as robotics, art, music, computer programming, communications, and many more! Also, if your teen is into sports, Jupiter High or Dwyer High is an excellent school for sports, such as basketball, soccer, football, and more!

Now, it gets even better from here! If your teen wants to attend a specialty school, such as a performing arts school or a boating school, then you’re in luck! There are many schools offering many specialty classes, such as, Dreyfoos School of the Arts, Maritime Academy, Suncoast and my personal favorite as it is the school I attend, G-Star School of the Arts. Dreyfoos specializes heavily on acting and dance, and Maritime is more about boating, the environment, and the ocean. Suncoast specializes in math and computer science, and last but certainly not least, G-Star is all about film, acting and animation.

Basically, no matter what you are looking for in Palm Beach County, you’re bound to find it! All you have to do is ask around, whether it’s by Internet, phone, or simply by showing up in person on campus. Don’t worry, because, no matter what your teen is interested in, you’re bound to find it!
