Preschool Latke Making 
On Thursday, the 2s through Junior Kindergarten students had the opportunity to try latkes. Students joined members of our PTO in the dining commons where Ms. Miri inspired everyone with her latke making skills. They also had fun working on Hanukkah coloring sheets and spinning Dreidels. Thank you to the wonderful PTO volunteers and Ms. Miri for helping with this holiday experience for the children. 
 
4th Grade Wax Museum 
For the past month in fourth grade, students learned about reading and writing informational texts.  Students read biographies and researched famous people throughout history. As part of the project, students created timelines of their lives, made displays of important events, and wrote essays about their famous figures.  Today, the fourth graders dressed up to become their favorite famous person for a living Wax Museum. Each student created an “exhibit” and gave their presentations from a first person perspective. They did an outstanding job! View photos
 
4th grade 3D printing 
Throughout the last few weeks, fourth graders have been working hard designing Hanukkah cookie cutters in Tinkercad. Students took their time to make sure that the dimensions were correct, added customizations, and some even add in a press element to their cutter! This week students learned how to transform their 3D print files into files that can be read by the 3D printer. When all of the cookie cutters are finished printing, the fourth graders will work with kindergarten students to make Hanukkah cookies!

T-Shirt Design Contest 
Congratulations to 5th Grader Samy Hahamy for winning the annual Lower School T-shirt design contest. Students had to design a T-shirt based on this year’s yearbook theme “Endless Possibilities.” There were over 60 submissions this year and it was very difficult finding a winner with all of the wonderful designs. Congrats Samy! 
 
Book Fair 
Our annual Scholastic Book Fair is currently taking place. Each class has the opportunity to visit the fair and students are able to make a wish list of books that they would like to have. Please check your child’s list to see what they “wished” for. Additionally, parents can buy wish list books for their child’s classroom too. Proceeds from book fair purchases will come back to our school.  The book fair will be open until Tuesday, December 10th at 3:30pm, so please stop by as we continue to promote a love for reading in the Lower School.  
 
Globes
In Social Studies, Second Grade began an exciting new project! Furthering our studies on the continents and oceans, each student is creating their own personal globe! Working in the art room and their classrooms, the Second Grade began to paper mâché a balloon, which will serve as a model of the earth. Each student will then paint and label the five oceans as well as cut, label, and paste the seven continents onto their very own globe! 
 
Project Beyond Junior

What a fantastic first month we had in Project Beyond Junior, the Lower School’s gifted and talented program. The first step in problem-solving is effective COMMUNICATION.  Through an array of challenges and activities, students learned that effective communication includes precision of language, the strategic use of nonverbal language, and engaged listening.

Thanksgiving Shabbat/shows
We had a heartwarming and enriching week in Lower School! Today we enjoyed wonderful Thanksgiving celebrations with our students and their families. Our students celebrated the holiday through dancing, singing, and eating traditional foods. It is a culmination of the fall and Thanksgiving unit and we are thankful that we get to celebrate with our families. We are very excited to continue with our Thanksgiving celebrations with our JK Thanksgiving show on Tuesday 11/26 at 8:30am in the Theater.  VIEW PHOTOS
 
K- 5 Giving Thanks 
Third grade will make cranberry bread for all staff members in the Lower School on Monday 11/25. They will learn about the ingredients and measurements that go into this large baking project along with showing their appreciation and giving thanks to our school staff. They learn about all of the different people it takes to help run our school and  they show their appreciation by baking them an individual loaf of bread. There is also a story that teaches about morals and not making judgements about people. Additionally, the entire K- 5th grade student body will participate in our Rosh Chodesh challah bake for the month of November. Each child will make additional Challot that will be donated to Aishel Avraham (A local food pantry). We would like to thank our Challah Bake sponsors for the month of November.

2nd - 5th Grade  Cultural Field Trip:
On Monday, our 2nd through 5th grade students had the opportunity to attend Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium at The Smith Center. This immersive show allowed the students to explore the ocean depths where prehistoric marine reptiles existed eons ago. The show used a combination of puppets, animation, actors, technology, science, and imagination to connect our students to marine science and paleontology.

Veterans Day
We honored our Veterans this past Monday by holding a special Veterans Day program and invited 14 Veterans and active duty service men and women to our campus. We started the program with the entire school huddled around the flagpole participating in the traditional raising of the American flag followed by Tapps and a rendition of the Star Spangled Banner, which was performed by our Upper School band. Each military guest then proceeded to an assigned classroom and gave a presentation about their military service. Our guest speakers included veterans and active duty members from the Air Force, Army, and Marines, some of whom are parents of AEC students. Many of the guests brought in special artifacts to pass around and explained the meaning and significance to the children. They also answered many questions from our students. After our guests left, our students wrote thank you cards to their guest speakers and then participated in the Jewish Soldiers Project. Through the Jewish Soldiers Project, students make Hanukkah cards for Jewish military men and women serving in the United States armed forces. During Hanukkah this year, members of our military who are stationed in America and abroad will receive these Hanukkah letters. View Photos
 
4th Grade Field Trip to Hoover Dam 
Fourth grade students visited the Hoover Dam this week.  Throughout the school year, students learn about Nevada state history in Social Studies and energy in Science.  The Hoover Dam was an exciting destination to see both topics of study come to life. Students were amazed by the turbines powering California, Nevada, and Arizona on the Power Plant Tour, and everyone enjoyed walking across the dam into Arizona. Students also spent time in the museum and scenic overlooks learning about the sheer size and scope of this magnificent feat of engineering. View photos
 
Legacy Heritage Professional Development 
Preschool teachers continued their professional development with the Legacy Heritage Foundation. They participated in two days of intensive workshops.  The workshops focused on developing units that align with our standards and benchmarks. Teachers are very excited to apply their learning by implementing the material into their lesson plans. 
 
Chef Aubree’s Cooking Class
Chef Aubree teaches an after school cooking class as part of the Lower School enrichment program. Students learn about ingredients, different foods, meal preparation, kitchen equipment, and  kitchen safety. This week, her class prepared delicious BBQ beef, which ended up being an item on Tuesday’s lunch menu. Many of the students and staff enjoyed the tasty meal.

Startup Incubator In Action

News Type:  Lower School News Upper School News Startup Incubator News Date:  Friday, November 8, 2019 Byline:  Ben Koch, Upper School Assistant Principal
 
AEC students have a tremendous advantage with access to a best in class 5000 sqft technology lab called the Startup Incubator. Digital media, robotics, 3D printing are signature features, and this year, our 7th graders are engaged in a yearlong series of 3D printing projects connected to their Judaics curriculum. Their current project is to create Shabbat sets for each Preschool classroom.  
 
At their first meeting in August, Mr. Mayron and Ms. Ziter led students to draft logos for each preschool class both digitally and freehand.  Then students learned how to move those designs onto 3D printed objects. Since then, they’ve problem solved how to design candlesticks to fit a specifically sized candle, and a cup that holds a specific amount of liquid.  These embedded math lessons have added an additional layer to this cross-curricular project.  
 
Each week, students are given thinking questions to expand their learning about 3D printing and how it interacts with the real world.  They’ve had to consider questions such as “Are 3D printed sets kosher?” (They are.), and what process must 3D printed objects go through to be considered food safe.   Today, in preparation for gifting each Preschool classroom these Shabbat sets, the 7th graders visited the preschool classrooms this morning to read the students books about Shabbat!
 
As this is a yearlong initiative, the seventh graders will soon draft and 3D print projects related to Hannukah, Purim, and be responsible for designing the awards for the Middle School Awards program which will happen in conjunction with Yom Haatzmaut in April.
 

AEC Partners with Lauder Javne School, Budapest, Hungary

AEC high school students and faculty partners with the Lauder Javne School, an independent Jewish Day School in Budapest, Hungary. VIEW PHOTOS
 
The High School Morim Limmud, sponsored by SOS International Enriching Jewish Identity, is a five-year international educational exchange and professional development opportunity for American and European Jewish day schools. Each U.S. school partners with a Central or Eastern European school for the duration of the program, which includes a series of travel exchanges for participating teachers and students.  The teams establish personal and professional relationships both for students and teachers and proactively participate in Jewish Community Renewal.
 
Our students and faculty have experienced the Lauder Javne School and Hungarian education and have been able to engage in week-long joined group activities, including home hospitality and personal connection with Lauder students and their families with AEC students; visit sites of Jewish importance;  visit other touristic sites, and teaching. AEC teachers and students led activities and lessons to Lauder students and teachers. Upon returning to AEC, these cohorts of students and faculty will continue to work together to perfect the art of teaching and to share best practices in general studies education and Jewish education.
 
A special opportunity afforded to our AEC Budapest team was to meet the founder of the Javne Lauder School, Ms. Anna. Not only was Ms. Anna the founder, but she also served as Head of School for 30 years. Since her retirement, she has been instrumental in the rebuilding of the synagogue at Balatonfured Village, and the museum of Jewish Excellence. Ms. Anna is an inspiring educator and community leader who spoke about her journey to keep Jewish heritage alive and celebrated instead of a sole focus on the tragedy. Inspired by their interaction with Ms. Anna,  our AEC BUdapest team discussed how we can emphasize the importance of leadership in our school’s community, the Jewish community, and the wider community in general.
 
Other experiences on the educational trip included visiting  the House of Jewish Excellence where researched Jewish scientists works and contributions to mathematics, science, and technology have been felt worldwide.  The Dohaney Street Synagogue provided both experiential learning and breathtaking views. It is the third largest synagogue in the world and its attached museum helped to bring perspective to the learning students have done in preparation for the trip. 
 
We are excited for the opportunity to host our new friends and colleagues from the Lauder Javne School in Las Vegas in February.  We plan to show them our strong Las Vegas Jewish community and keep this living bridge alive.

Student council elections took place on Tuesday, November 5th. 16 nominees from grades 3rd - 5th ran amazing campaigns over the past month  in hopes of being elected to Student Council. Nominees were required to write an essay outlining why they felt they are a good fit for student council and what their vision is for representing the Lower School. From there, nominees learned about the different facets of running a campaign, which included marketing, creating a vision, and  ultimately an election day speech to the entire 3rd - 5th grade. Student council nominees did a wonderful job running a fair and honest campaign, while sharing a mutual respect for one another. Congratulations to all of the nominees for their hard work and bravery to run for a student council position. Congratulations to the following candidates who were elected to represent the Lower School in student council. 
 
3rd Grade - Liv Abrahamson, Lilah Cohen, and Sabrina Harouni.
4th Grade - Noam Fuss and Addie Kelly 
5th Grade - Armineh McTarian and Ginger Gore. 
 

This week at Shabbat, we welcomed local Veterans from the Kline Veterans Organization. We are honored that we had three Veterans from the Kline Fund to visit with our students during Shabbat. They enjoyed the performances and led us with the Shabbat blessings and gave a short explanation of the important work the Kline Fund is doing for our Veterans. (Veterans: Jerry Bootzin, Stephanie Helms, and Les Sherman). Our 3rd grade students performed “Grand Ol’ Flag” and read the poem “My Grandfather’s Wall. WATCH VIDEO 

On Monday morning, we will observe Veterans Day by participating in a flag raising ceremony at our flag poles and our Kindergarten - 5th grade will have the opportunity to listen to current members and veterans of our armed forces. All of our guest speakers are affiliated with our school in some capacity and we look forward to honoring them on this special day. 

The 7th grade Judaics classes are designing and 3D printing Kiddush cups and candles sticks for the preschool, as they will have it as a provocation for their Shabbat learning. This Friday, the 7th grade Judaics class read Shabbat stories for our Preschool classes, as an introduction to the partnership between the 7th grade Judaics and the Preschool. Both the 7th grade and Preschool students were very excited to interact with each other.

On Wednesday, Second graders went on their first field trip to The Clark County Wetlands Park. The students experienced an immersive, hands on learning experience as they were introduced to the wildlife of the wetlands. They each participated in a scavenger hunt in which they found plants such as the cottonwood tree and desert mistletoe, animals such as a dragonfly and a beaver, and even evidence of animal life such as burrows and coyote scat! One highlight of the Field Trip was traipsing through the brush in order to view The Wetland’s Little Canyon. After studying landforms these past two months, the students were excited to have firsthand experience viewing a river running through a canyon. After exploring the Wetlands themselves, the students were able to visit The Clark County Wetlands Museum. The interactive atmosphere led to some exciting learning experiences that utilized all of the students senses. They were able to use video surveillance to observe the Wetlands landscape, listen to the sounds of different animals in that environment, and even smell different scents found in the Wetlands. The students had an amazing experience visiting The Wetlands Park! 

Fifth grade students journeyed to the Writer’s Block Book Store this past Tuesday where they were tasked with publishing a book in order to help keep the store open. During their role play, students were guided through the writing process where they brainstormed silly and wacky characters including a protagonist by the name of Fishstick (who happens to be a fishstick) who teamed up with a pug named Doug to battle and escape the hungry, evil, purple llamas. Each student had to complete the story the class had started, and students left with their own published books. Luckily, the owner approved all of their stories, and our talented and creative writers saved the day!
 
Our fourth grade performed the state song “Home Means Nevada” at Shabbat this week. The performance included xylophones, ukuleles, and singing from our vibrant 4th graders. They also led us in our Shabbat songs and blessings. The Upper School band accompanied us, which always adds excitement to our Shabbat celebrations.

This week, our Kindergarten classes continued their study of community with a field trip to Spring Mtn. Ranch. With this experiential learning opportunity our students were able to explore some of the oldest buildings in Nevada, which included a sandstone cabin, blacksmith shop, and the historic ranch house. They also learned about the early pioneers who developed the area and the celebrities who used it as a retreat. With the ranger guided tour, our students also learned about the local terrain and some of the wildlife that inhabits the area. Our students finished their wonderful field trip with a nice picnic lunch with the adjacent Red Rock Canyon as the scenic backdrop.

Sukkot Experience
Many of our Preschool families enjoyed a wonderful Sukkot Experience on Thursday night. Each grade level had the opportunity to sing Sukkot themed songs and dance with their teachers in front of friends and family. We said the blessing and shook the 4 species (Lulav, Etrog, arava, hadas) together as a community. Additionally, there were interactive stations that included arts and crafts, story time, building blocks, and planting in the garden. The stations were led by our teachers and Shinshinim. Families also enjoyed pizza and cookies, while we listened to Sukkot themed music. Our Sukkah was wonderfully decorated with paper chains made during our Tashlich event and included decorations made by our Preschool classes. Thank you to all of the families and staff members who attended this great event! 
 
 
Hakafot Ceremony  
This Friday we celebrated Simchat Torah. This holiday marks the completion of the 5 books of the Torah and starting over again with a joyful Hakafot ceremony. Our students, teachers, and parents danced with the Torah after hearing some of our 8th grade students explain the Simchat Torah celebration. They chanted the last verses of the last portion of the Torah, as well as the first verses from the first Torah portion. Our Shabbat celebration was enhanced with the AEC band and older members of our student body from the Middle School.
