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.

Aron G. threw four touchdowns and also scored one himself. The defense was led by Alex S. with 12 sacks. Elías M. had eight sacks to help stop the defending team. All the players played very well on the defensive end of the field. A big shout-out to 4th Grader Avi K. Avi had an ankle breaker highlight and scored a two-point conversion. The Meyer Prep football team is off to an amazing start to our 2021- 2022 football season!
This week students had so much fun learning about Rosh Hashanah! The students learned about the special food, the brachot, the meaning of Teshuvah, Tefillah, and Tzedakah. They also participated in baking round challah, honey cake, and special art and crafts for the holiday. Rabbi Eli led Kindergarten through Second Grade in a special Shofar workshop. We wish all our families Shana Tova Umetuka! (have a good and sweet year). Click here to see the pictures from this week’s celebration.
Each month, the Middle School team nominates students who demonstrate the characteristics of our IB Learner Profile for that month. For August, the IB Faculty has selected Ariel K. This month focused on being a communicator within the middle school community. As a communicator, students understand and express ideas and information confidently and creatively in more than one language and in a variety of modes of communication. Students work effectively and willingly in collaboration with others. Congratulations to Ariel K. on receiving this special recognition.
Girls’ Volleyball played in their first game of the season on Tuesday! The girls came together and played well as a team in the away game versus Trinity Christian. In the first round, the girls fell to Trinity 5-25. The Lady Eagles fought back in the second round with a close loss, 20-25. In the final game, the girls came away with a 15-11 victory! Congratulations to our girls on an amazing set of games! Come out to support our Eagles’ Volleyball team! Click here for the volleyball schedule.
In First Grade Social Studies this week, the students drew pictures to show ways in which they can be kind to others! Some examples of their drawings were: helping someone up, holding the door open for someone, helping their parents clean, and giving a hurt child a bandaid!
Thank you to our amazing PTO!! Our stop and shop was a huge success and everyone appreciated it! We are so excited for the 2021-2022 school year.
Starting each morning with Tefillah (prayer) helps our students to feel connected to their feelings and to Hashem. During the month of the Elul, the last month of the Jewish calendar, it is a mitzvah to blow the shofar every morning to waking up spiritually as part of the preparations for Rosh Hashanah. Lower School has been participating in Tefillah with Rabbi Elli and Cantor Yakov every day this week, while the middle school continues their morning Tefillah together with Rabbi Rice.
