Mixer For Young Families This Friday

Hi, everyone. My name is Michael Kraver, I grew up in WP (White Plains High School Class of '95), and am now raising my family here. I'm working on a project with the Mayor's office to help WP do a better job recruiting and retaining young families. One of the ways we're doing that is by focusing on...

Re: Kids eat free!

That's a great list. I only knew about Atlanta Bread in WP on Wednesday nights. We were just there yesterday. There's a great balloon artist - my daughter loves him.

Jazz Fest in WP?

Anyone planning to go to Jazz Fest in WP? Looks like fun! (Info here, for those who haven't seen: https://www.artswestchester.org/things- ... jazz-fest/ )
My family will be there on Sunday the 8th, for the International Food and Jazz Fest.

Energy Kitchen?

Has anyone been to the new Energy Kitchen restaurant across the street from the City Center? It looks nice, and I'd be happy to have a quality option for good, fast, healthy food.

Re: Daycare Recommendations?

We did, yes. A Bright Horizons daycare in New Rochelle, that is run out of Temple Israel there. My wife works in that area, and there was a waiting list at the one in White Plains, so we were lucky to find this one. It's been great so far! I presume that the Bright Horizons one in White Plains meets...

Re: WP Playgrounds

My daughter loves Gillie Park, but she's only 16 months old, so I don't know whether your child will enjoy it as much. There's also a great park at the Kensico Dam, if you feel like taking the trip.

Impulse Hibachi

My wife and I have been waiting for Impulse Hibachi (by the City Center) to open for a looong time -- seems like years! We'd drive by, and the sign would say "Coming Soon," but there were no signs of progress for months. Well, it finally opened, and we went. Two thumbs up!

Re: Daycare Recommendations?

I can't recommend one personally because my daughter isn't yet in daycare. But, we have started to look, and heard good things about Bright Horizons on Corporate Drive.

Re: From Brooklyn to White Plains

Great posting! I'm often amazed at people who want to move to Westchester but won't look at WP, "because of the schools," they say. Admittedly, it has been a long time since I was in WP schools (attended them from the first day of kindergarten through the last day of high school), but, still, I thin...

Re: NY State School Report Cards

Thank you, Jennifer, for that information. When I used to attend WP schools, the students got "tracked" at some point. I don't remember exactly when, but I seem to recall there being an "accelerated math" program starting around 5th grade, different groups that had all classes together in 7th grade,...
