Warrior Life

Volume 3, Issue 18

Staff Spotlight: Jade Jones (Science Teacher)

"I’m originally from Philadelphia but moved to Indiana in 2008 to pursue a Master of Science degree in Chemistry from Purdue University (Boiler Up!). I also hold a Master of Arts degree in Secondary Education from Ball State University. Aside from helping students discover their love of Chemistry, my true passion lies in developing ways to cultivate equity in an academic setting through exploring Indiana’s testing practices and the achievement gap. I’m currently back at Purdue, working on my Master of Science in Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction and at Butler University working on my certification in Applied Educational Neuroscience. I spend my free time with friends, baking (baking challenge anyone?!), going to [solidcore]/Orangetheory, or just relaxing at home with my pets (dog and cat). I’m excited to have joined the Warren Central team and look forward to working with you all. Go Warriors!" - Ms. Jones

Welcome to Warren!

The registration to enroll for the Purdue Gifted Education Research and Resource Institute’s (GER2I) Spring Super Saturday program held in February 2021 is now open! At these GER2I camps, students take challenging classes related to their area(s) of interest. We offer hands-on classes in a wide range of subjects, including STEM and the humanities, all designed to be one to two grade levels above traditional classroom content. These classes are taught by esteemed professors, graduate students, and teachers from Lafayette and surrounding areas.

We offer a caregiver-child format for children in PreK - 5th grades so caregivers can spend quality time and gain experience working with their children. This is required. The participation of caregivers of students in 6th - 12th grades is not required, but parents are invited to our parent interest sessions.
