03 AprMy School’s 50th Anniversary

Fifty years ago things were very different here at the Solomon Schechter Day School. Some people called it The Foundation School. We are now the Martin J. Gottlieb Day School, but that is a completely different story. The students were probably similar to the ones today. Like all schools in time there were bullies and friends. The students most likely were good or badly behaved depending on the situation they were in. They teachers were more strict and had more rules to be followed. If you “got in trouble” you would get detention.

The Center would have no IPads or SmartBoards and instead of typing there would be writing. The Solomon Schechter Day School was located in downtown Jacksonville. There would have been less homework then today and there would be more work in class then homework.

School now is better then fifty years ago because now there is 21st century learning and better technology. I don’t know what I would do without my blog! Fifty years ago technolagy would have one use, unlike now because all the technolagy has many different uses. For example, now we have phones that can text, call, play games, and so much more. Back then phones had one use: to call. I hope you like my tale of what it was like fifty years ago, so stay tuned for the story of how the Martin J. Gottlieb got its name.

I made this post because it was a class assignment, but I also made it because my school is important to me. I think this post really shows my perspective of what things were really like. This post is very special  to me because I worked really hard on it. I tagged this under portfolio because I think that it stands out compared to the rest of my posts.
