  1. Most High school seniors here have the opportunity to do a two week internship in a field they are interested in pursuing, towards the end of the school year. The schools have lists of individuals and firms willing to work with the students in a large variety of fields. Perhaps your local high school can put you in touch with someone that would be more willing to answer questions from a student. They may even be able to provide internship opportunities.
  2. The real problem is that if it weren't for their need to throw a fit, they wouldn't normally know what books were on their child's classroom curriculum or even that a list existed at all.
  3. I think this post and Ordinary Shoes post is combining denominations in a way. Reform Jews are usually not observant meaning that they do not literally follow the 613 commandments and usually are not kosher. Yes, literal interpretations of the Torah are not necessary or common but that it because they are being seen as a guide to teach moral lessons on how to be a better person. I think this point is important to me because I often see posts here with people saying that they know someone Jewish but they are not very religious because they aren't kosher or don't appear to observant.

  4. I'm curious what movement (denomination) of Judaism you were looking at? In Reform Judaism there are no literal interpretations unless you want to look at them that way. There is no reason to actually believe in the Exodus, Mt Sinai, etc. This is a good summary: https://reformjudaism.org/learning/answers-jewish-questions/can-reform-jew-believe-torah-word-god
  5. In middle school when I was about 12 early 80's. I volunteered at a summer stock theatre and most people that worked there were gay. I started officially working there in high school and continued to work there on and off seasons through college. there were times that I was one of the few straight people working there. I didn't know any peers that were gay until high school. There were a few that came out during that time and others that didn't some out until years later.
  6. Yes - In 9th grade in the 80's I had a class called American Studies. It was a double period that combined History and English. We briefly touched on it though.
  7. Taking a civics class is a requirement for graduation here. there isn't specifically a test to pass, just that the class be completed with a passing grade. In our local high school the classes that satisfy this requirement across the levels are Civics, Honors Civics, and AP Government. They are normally offered in 10th grade.
  8. Sorry just saw the dairy allergy!!
  9. How about a lasagna with zucchini in place of the pasta. That with a side salad might work.
  10. When My kids were in middle school they activities almost every day. For my daughter Spanish and band were part of her school day and she had them every day M-F after school she had whichever sport/season she was in for practice or a game. soccer/basketball/track every day M-F sometimes Sat in the evenings she had Girl scouts once a week and rec soccer, off soccer season, twice a week with games on the weekend. On some Sundays she volunteered with a TOPS soccer program She is an active kid and could have done even more if there were more hours in the day.
  11. My son has gone back to full in person, but when they were hybrid he had to log in every period for attendance when it was his cohort's virtual day. He still had to participate in each class just like the students there in person. He had to take notes on the lessons, take quizzes and test, participate in discussions, etc. If you aren't actually in those classes on those virtual days aren't you missing half of what is being taught? And daily attendance has nothing to do with public school funding in many places.
  12. Does your daughter have health insurance? If she's not interested in testing via that program, can't she get tested at Rite Aid using her insurance instead. Most people I know that have been tested paid nothing out of pocket through their insurance. This includes clinics, urgent care facilities hospitals and even pharmacies.
  13. I would answer yes to all of these things and I would let the person with a few items ahead of me on line. I also am often reaching items on high shelves for people because I am fairly tall. But, if some one said "watch yourself" to me I would probably be annoyed. To me that is rude. It would be one thing if I was about to step in a puddle I didn't see and could slip(where people here would say "watch out") But you are both headed towards each other. You can control your actions but are telling her to control hers. People don't like to be told what to do by strangers.
  14. Aside from this there is sometimes also an accounting or business track with a variety of accounting classes after Geometry.
