4th Grade
Adelson Educational Campus
Ethan Cohen is a 4th grader at Adelson Educational Campus. He currently has a 4.0 GPA and is in numerous activities. Ethan recently spoke at a school gathering where he declared, “Everyone is a legend in their own way, especially if you believe you can make another person smile”. Kim Cooper said “Recognizing the part of himself that can be quite introverted, he actively seeks out ways to force himself to grow. Whether it’s participating in early morning math and coding classes at school, campaigning for a role on student council, or auditioning for the school musical. Ethan is continually pushing himself far out of his comfort zone; in doing so he has discovered so much about himself and his own potential!”
 5th Grade

Rachel Super is a 5th grader at Adelson Educational Campus. She currently has a 4.0 GPA and has received several achievement awards for science. She is on the school’s swim and cross country team.

She is extremely dependable and others know they can depend on her for group projects” said Jill Super.
