SUMMER ADVENTURE - Middle School style at JAMS

Posted By Administration, Saturday, May 6, 2017
Does your middle school student have summer plans? Do you want them to stay engaged during the summer? Sign up for Summer Adventure, taking place at JAMS this year from June 19 through July 21!

Students can enroll on a weekly basis, from one to five weeks. The program, taught mostly by SMMUSD teachers, lets students choose classes covering a wide range of topics such as building websites, creating edible science, getting physical in a variety of sports classes, and so much more. Incoming sixth graders can take advantage of a "Middle School Masters" class, preparing them for their transition to middle school. And incoming ninth graders can “Get Set for Samohi,” a new class that helps students make the transition to high school. 

Summer Adventure lets students enjoy an enriching summer camp experience in a relaxed school setting. Learn more and register at!  

Summer Adventure is co-sponsored by the Santa Monica-Malibu Council of PTAs and the Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation.

Los estudiantes pueden inscribirse semanalmente, de una a cinco semanas. El programa, enseñado principalmente por maestros de SMMUSD, le permite a los estudiantes elegir clases que abarcan una amplia gama de temas tales como la construcción de sitios web, la creación de ciencia comestible, mantenerse activo en una variedad de clases de deportes, y mucho más. Los estudiantes que ingresan al sexto grado pueden aprovechar una clase de “Maestría de la Escuela Intermedia,” una clase que los prepara para su transición a la escuela intermedia. Y los estudiantes que entran al noveno grado pueden tomar “Prepárate para Samohi” (“Get Set for Samohi”), una nueva clase que ayuda a los estudiantes en la transición a la escuela preparatoria.

La Aventura de Escuela de Verano (Summer Adventure) le permite a los estudiantes a que disfruten de una enriquecedora experiencia de campamento de verano en un ambiente escolar relajado. ¡Infórmese más e inscríbase en!

Aloha Oahu Summer Camp

Posted By Administration, Sunday, March 12, 2017
We are very excited to be able to have this amazing camp on the North Shore of Oahu this year.  I can either escort kids over there, or a parent can bring them, drop them off and have a holiday themselves for a week before picking them up again. 

All the best,

SCREENAGERS - Documentary (Paul Revere Middle School)

Posted By Administration, Thursday, September 8, 2016
"Screenagers" is a must-see documentary for the entire family if you have a teen who:

1. Has a smartphone 
2. Goes on social media
3. Plays video games

I'm assuming that the teen in your family falls into at least one of these categories!

SCREENAGERS probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including the director's own, and depicts messy struggles, over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through surprising insights from authors and brain scientists, solutions emerge on how we can empower kids to best navigate the digital world. 

What: Screenagers film
When: Tuesday, Sept. 13th, 2016
Time: 7:00pm-9:00pm
Where: Paul Revere Middle School, 1450 Allenford Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90049
Cost: FREE (although there is a $10 suggested donation that goes to the Booster Club)

RSVP HERE. Copy and paste this link into your browser --->

Watch the trailer here. Copy and paste this link into your browser --->
I will be facilitating an insightful and interactive discussion afterward. Bring the whole family! I hope to see you there.
