On Monday, in honor of our 100th day of school, Meyer Prep students celebrated in various ways. Lower school students collected 100 items of their choice, fantasized about what they would do if they had 100 dollars and wrote about what they thought life would be like in 100 years.
Middle school students worked together on a shopping activity that involved converting money. Students were given 100 shekels to spend and were shown how to convert money by applying their understanding of proportions. Students shopped on-line at various Judaic sites. After doing all the necessary conversions, students totaled their purchases to be sure they did not spend more than their 100 shekels. It was interesting to see the students determine how much they can buy with a 100 shekels. Students enjoyed shopping and learning an important real-world concept of converting money.
Happy 100th day of school!
Meyer Preparatory School will celebrate the Class of 2020 8th Grade Graduation ceremony on Wednesday, May 27. Mazel tov to our graduates and their families.
Meyer Prep Lower and Middle Schools will be holding their first-ever March Book Madness series this March! It is similar to the basketball March Madness, but this time books will be battling it out to see which is the most popular book in each grade level.
We are participating in the national March Book Madness campaign with preselected titles for each grade level. The theme this year is characters that are "Brave and Bold." The idea is for students to read as many books on the list (as desired) in order to vote to make sure that their favorite book wins all of the brackets.
A suggested reading list will be sent home from your child's Language Arts teacher.
This March is sure to be a slam dunk!
We are thrilled to announce that Meyer Preparatory School is expanding! Beginning in the 2020-2021 school year, Meyer Prep is pleased to launch a Junior Kindergarten program.
Students who are developmentally ready for a more advanced learning environment, and are younger than traditional kindergarten age, will now have the opportunity to be part of our outstanding JK - 8 Jewish day school. The focus of our Junior Kindergarten is to cultivate socio-emotional and academic growth through discovery and wonderment, while remaining anchored in Jewish values and tradition.
Meyer Prep’s Junior Kindergarten program will feature foundations for the emergent reader, age-appropriate techniques to build number sense and mathematical thinking, and hands-on innovation and STEAM activities. Meyer Prep’s teaching principles of inquiry-based learning through creativity and discovery will permeate all aspects of learning. Play is an essential part of a Meyer Prep Junior Kindergartener’s experience. Students will experiment, create, negotiate, develop friendships and collaborate throughout the school day while learning in an all-new ergonomically designed classroom environment. Meyer Prep’s Jr. K program will be taught by teachers with advanced college degrees who are certified in elementary education.
This is a major step forward for our school whose benefits will resonate out into the greater Palm Beach Jewish community. Meyer Prep extends gratitude to our School Board, professional leadership, and community partners for their efforts to bring the new Junior Kindergarten to fruition.

Sixth graders became detectives in math class. Students were tasked with using their new skills for finding the GCF and LCM of number sets to solve a mysterious theft of artifacts from Brazil. The quest took the young detectives from Iguaza Falls to the Sambadrome. All our detectives earned their nicknames: Holmes, Watson, and Drew!
