Jamerson Elementary magnet application figures

editor's note

Figures given for Jamerson magnet requests

Last year the Center for Mathematics and Engineering at Douglas L. Jamerson Elementary drew 130 applications from students who ranked the school as their first choice. The St. Petersburg magnet school invited 101 of those students into its program and there were 26 students on the waiting list. Because of an omission by the Pinellas County School District, Jamerson did not appear in a St. Pete Times chart last week showing 2012-13 application figures for magnet, fundamental and career programs. Jamerson is one of numerous schools highlighted in School Search, a special section published today.

School lunch menu

Elementary schools have a choice of one entree or cold sandwich and two fruits or vegetables, or salad plate meal and one fruit or vegetable. Meatless entree, chef salad and cold sandwich selection available daily. Both include choice of milk: low-fat, skim or skim chocolate, and bread or crackers and dessert when available.

Middle and high school menus rotate every two weeks and are different for each individual school.

Monday: Breaded chicken, cheese quesadilla with Santa Fe rice, chef salad, seasoned black beans and romaine or tossed salad.

Tuesday: Student Involvement Day.

Wednesday: Chili, cheese and chips, teriyaki chicken with rice, yogurt parfait, steamed fresh green beans and romaine salad.

Thursday: Breaded or spicy chicken sandwich, sloppy joe bowl, farmers salad, broccoli, and veggie dippers.

Friday: Professional Development Day — no school.

  3. Trigaux: Closing Iron Yard coding school hits area tech hard but leaders talk of options

    Business

    The coming shutdown this fall of the Iron Yard software coding school in downtown St. Petersburg — announced this month as part of a national closing of all 15 Iron Yard locations — remains a shocking event to a Tampa Bay technology community that dreams big of becoming a major player in the Southeast if not …

    In better days last fall, friends and family of graduates at The Iron Yard, based in the Station House in downtown St. Petersburg, applaud during "Demo Day" when grads of the coding school show off their skills. Despite the local success and strong job placement by the coding school, The Iron Yard is closing all of its 15 locations across the country this summer. [LARA CERRI   |   Times]
