Best Part-Time Jobs For High School Students BY DAVID QUILTY SpecialSectionS@antonmediagroup.com
Finding and keeping a part-time job while attending high school can be a daunting task. Balancing work with classes, homework, extracurricular activities, and just hanging out with friends can be tough, but millions of teens are able to manage part-time work along with their other responsibilities. During my first two years of high school I was a paper delivery boy, leaving at 4 am every morning to deliver newspapers. I also went out once or twice a week in the evening to collect money from my customers. For the last two years of school I had a retail job, behind the counter at a mom and pop drugstore. These jobs taught me how to manage money, how to handle responsibility, and how to deal with the general public. They were invaluable experiences and provided me with some much-needed autonomy and spending money, too.

Part-Time Jobs for High School Students Some students work in traditional part-time jobs, but many students take a more entrepreneurial approach to earning money. There are a number of side business ideas
you can begin that take advantage of your unique skills and abilities. Starting a business appeals to many students because the hours are flexible, the pay is as good as or better than a “real” job, and you’re the boss. Some of the most popular parttime jobs and small business opportunities for high school students include being an animal shelter worker, working in arts and crafts

There are different schools of thought on whether teenagers should have part-time jobs, but I find that the pros easily outweigh any cons. A teenager who works long hours every day after school could see his or her schoolwork suffer, but a less-intensive part-time job can be a wonderful learning experience. If kids can get to school on time, maintain solid grades, and participate in school activities, part-time jobs in high school can be beneficial to their success. Solid GPA and SAT test scores are important to gain entrance to college, but schools look for more than just good test scores. Universities also look for well-rounded students. An application from a high school student who holds a part-time job demonstrates determination, drive, and perseverance. Before applying for any part-time job, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the child labor laws in your state. Some states require that minors have work permits in order to apply for jobs. In some areas, minors are not permitted to work in certain types of occupations, or cannot work during school hours. Some states

End Of School Year Tips The days are getting longer and the weather is becoming warmer. The promise of a relaxing summer is within our grasp. At the same time, students need to complete projects, prepare for final exams and experience emotions about the transition into a new grade. Focus and motivation can begin to dwindle while at the same time, stress and anxiety rise. Here are some tips to help your scholar make it through the end of the school year on a positive note:
PARENTING MATTERS Graziella Simonetti
Create A Visual
Hang a large calendar somewhere in the home where it is easy to see. Routines Fill it with important dates, deadlines This is not the time to switch the routines you have had in place all year. and activities such as end of the year parties, field days and recitals. Children Although it stays lighter later, mainare more likely to be motivated to work tain routines around mealtime and bedtime. Children of all ages thrive on through deadlines when they see that there are relaxed and fun activities in routines and will have better school the mix. This will also help you stay performance if they follow them. Remind yourself and your children that organized during a hectic time of year, and if you feel organized and calm, summer break is very close and when your children feel anchored. it starts, routines can be modified.
Point Out Progress
Children’s concentration improves if they spend more time outdoors. Letting your children have time to play outside for an hour or so after school will positively impact their focus. Even consider having some parts of their routine such as mealtime or reading take place outside.
Reflect with your children about the school year that is ending. Discuss what they learned and how they faced challenges. Look back on projects and assignments collected throughout the year. Decide together which items you want to save. Celebrate the progress they made throughout the year.
As much as possible, maintain your level of enthusiasm and engagement in the school process. Your children will feed off this energy. If they see that you are losing interest or motivation, it will be hard for them to maintain theirs. While this time of year can be exciting, it can also feel unpredictable and disorderly. For some children, the anticipation of change and the unfamiliarity of what lies ahead can feel sad and scary. Validate your children’s feelings. Encourage them to speak or draw about what they are feeling. Help keep
things as structured and predictable as possible for them. Problem solve with your children and role play with them to help them with the anticipatory anxiety they are experiencing.

On Tuesday, May 9, Friends Academy junior Max Miller was one of the main presenters at PIVOTAL—an unprecedented event by EisnerAmper, a premier corporate accounting firm. PIVOTAL brought together technology leaders and corporate venture capitalists to discuss trends, innovations and investment criteria that will shape the landscape for decades to come. When EisnerAmper heard of Miller’s venture to build a S.T.E.A.M. shack at Sunrise Day Camp-Long, the world’s first day camp for children with cancer and their siblings offered free of charge, they invited him to be part of this amazing day. In addition to an interactive booth, complete with a pancake bot, Kano computer building kits, Makerbot 3D printers and tons of information, Miller presented his vision for the S.T.E.A.M. shack accompanied by his Sunrise camper, Lane, who inspired Miller to create this innovative program. But, Miller didn’t stop there. Miller contacted International Robotics, who provided a life-size interactive robot that not only entertained the event’s attendees but in the morning visited the Sunrise on Wheels program at

Billions To Be Invested In State Education Governor Andrew Cuomo recently signed legislation investing a record $25.8 billion in high-quality education across New York State. The new legislation boosts education aid by $1.1 billion, including a $700 million increase in Foundation Aid. The bold investment builds on the governor’s commitment to strengthening educational outcomes, including an increase in education aid of $6.2 billion, or 32 percent, over the last six years. The governor also announced the second round of the Empire State Excellence in Teaching Program, which recognizes 60 teachers across New York who are successfully preparing a new generation of learners for the future. Winners will receive an award from the governor, the opportunity to advise education policy makers, and a stipend of $5,000. The funds can be used for continued learning and professional development.
The state budget makes historic investments at every level of the educational landscape in order to improve student success. Regionally, the 2018 budget increases school aid on Long Island by $129.0 million, including a $78.9 million increase in Foundation Aid. Visit www.ny.gov/NYSTeachingExcellence for more information about the Empire State Excellence in Teaching Program.

Holy Cross Receives Million-Dollar Gift With deep gratitude, Holy Cross High School acknowledged a transformative gift of $1 million from a very successful and forward-thinking alumnus in support of the school’s STREAM curriculum, an acronym which stands for Science, Theology, Robotics, Engineering, Art and Mathematics. The most generous donor wishes to remain anonymous. In recognition of its Catholic identity as an academic institution sponsored by the congregation of Holy Cross, and building on the concepts of a growing methodology of education that encourages students to pursue inquiries and solve problems that are relevant to their world, Holy Cross High School is enhancing its STREAM curriculum. As espoused by the New York City Department of Education,
Holy Cross students are using the engineering design process to identify problems, design possible solutions and test and evaluate the outcomes. “In keeping with the founder of the congregation of Holy Cross, Blessed Basil Moreau, ‘How we educate the mind will change with the times; how we cultivate the heart is and will remain timeless.’ The STREAM Curriculum at Holy Cross is part of the school’s ever-changing effort to best prepare young people to contribute to the global economy,” said Mike Truesdell, president of Holy Cross. “As a result of this inspirational and aspirational gift from an anonymous alumnus, Holy Cross graduates will continue to excel as they take their next academic and career steps.”
