News & Announcements
The Jersey City Public Schools has partnered with the Jersey City Public Library to create an outreach program to provide students the opportunity to either obtain a library card or renew their library card. Please give this google form link to parents/ guardians, so parents can decide if they would like to give their permission and the information needed for their child to either update or receive a card. Library cards are renewed every three years to remain activated. In addition, if a student has had a fine in the past or did not return a book, those fines and book returns will be waived. The google form will populate the information that the Public Library needs to issue the card. Then, the Public Library will distribute students’ cards to the students in your school during June. A library card can also give students access to the online ebook and audiobook app, HOOPLA, where students can check out books and read them on their phone or electronic device. In addition, there will be some novel choices on the High School Summer reading list that can be obtained at a library location in Jersey City or on Hoopla.
The students in the 21st Century CCLC Program received dance lessons from instructors of the Nimbus Dance School in preparation for an energetic, Hip Hop inspired dance performance. Students learned a fast-paced dance routine and were able to add their own "flava" to the choreography. Thank you Nimbus!
