Coffee, nosh, and juice will be served. For more information, contact Nancy Davis by clicking here.
Registration is now open for the 2012-2013 School Year. Forms will be sent home shortly and are immediately accessible via the sidebar to the right of this blog post (or by clicking here). As you fill out the form (there are parts for both parents and students), I’d like to take a moment to highlight some new features of our school.
Going the extra yard– MAKOM Honors
For students who go above and beyond, MAKOM offers the MAKOM Honors Program. How does one go that extra mile? There’s online learning (see below), a new Madrichim program (see below). Students who take adult education courses or are involved with any Jewish activities within the larger Jacksonville Jewish community are also eligible. Students who sign up for MAKOM Honors automatically receive summer scholarship at the conclusion of the school year. An Honors certificate will be awarded alongside special recognition at our Siyyum Graduation. Perk points are also in the works to incentify the program. For more information, contact Hazzan Holzer.
MAKOM Partnership with JOLT: Jewish Online Learning for Teens
Gratz College is a pioneer in online Jewish education, and the Jewish Community High School of Gratz is proud to offer a variety of outstanding and challenging courses for teens, grades 8-12, through this innovative platform. Students from anywhere in the world with internet connection are able to enroll! Most courses are asynchronous, which means that you don’t have to be on line at a particular time. (Hebrew courses are the exception- see below). You do, however, have to participate at some point each week.
Certain courses are designated as college credit courses, and carry additional tuition. Only juniors and seniors may receive college credits. As with all such credits, acceptance of transfer credits is subject to each college’s or university’s own requirements. In order to receive college credits, additional information and requirements will be mailed upon registration.
Please visit www.gratz.edu/jchsonline for a full program guide, course descriptions, faculty bios, and more. Our website, makomhebrewhigh.wordpress.com, has all the information you will need. Scholarships are available to subsidize this amazing opportunity.
Madrichim Teachers Institute
The Bernard & Alice Selevan Religious School and MAKOM have teamed up to offer a new 8th grade Madrichim program at the Center, open to any student registered for the JJC’s Hebrew High program who is seriously interested in learning a variety of teaching skills. The year-long course will provide experiential, on-the-job training during Religious School hours. Students will receive credit for MAKOM and may be eligible to also receive community service hours. Looks great on a resume for college, or future job interviews! Please contact Lois Tompkins or Hazzan Holzer for more information.
