In many classrooms at The Jones-Gordon School you will find project-based learning. Eighth grader, Noah Forman, is a fan of this method of learning and takes pride in his recent Baseball project for the Spring JGS Talent Showcase and Poetry Reading.
Noah is one of the hardest working students you will know. He is eager to learn, kind, and very very funny. He has a profound interest in sports and personal health, and works out. He loves to be around his friends and can be found laughing and joking with his buddies.
Q: You’ve been at JGS for a long time. What do you like about it?
A: I have been here since the 6th grade. This is my 2nd anniversary here. I was 12 years old when I started. The people are nice to me. They give me respect.
My best moment so far was showing everyone my project for the Talent Showcase. It was a baseball project, and I got nice comments from people on it.
Q: You played on the JGS Flag Football Team. Tell me more about that…
A: I did great this year. I pulled 4 flags; one in the 2nd game, three in our 5th game! I’m now playing on the JGS softball team. I have fun. I like throwing the ball from the outfield to the base-men.
Q: What does JGS mean to you?
A: Friendships, strength, sports, intelligence.
Q: What do you do outside of school?
A: I play football at my friend’s house.
Q: What do you want to be when you grow up?
A: I don’t know yet, maybe something with sports.
