The 5th grade students joined the 6th grade for a day on Mt. Potosi. The day started with a morning hike at Calico Basin where Mr. Koch spoke about TuB’Shvat and had the students draw metaphorical connections about the seeds that their parents and grandparents have planted for them. The trip continued on to Mt. Potosi where students participated in a plethora of activities that included TuB’Shvat tree building, improv, archery, origami, and a growth mindset activity. Students also had free time to explore the surrounding wilderness, play Gaga ball, and play in the snow. Students enjoyed lunch and dinner in the dining hall where the 5th and 6th grade students had quality time to interact. The 5th graders had to say good bye to the 6th graders and returned back to campus safely at 8pm. It was a very fun and exciting trip for our 5th graders. Our 5th graders are looking forward to more activities throughout the second semester. 
 
To honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday this Monday, we watched a video during Shabbat and the 5th grade and read a poem through the perspective of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.. Given that their driving question for their study of American History is: “When should one question authority”, students made poignant connections between the injustices citizens experienced during both the  Revolutionary War and the Civil Rights Movement. Great job to the 5th grade with their presentation. 
 
100th Day of School Canned Food Drive. To continue with our school-wide efforts in promoting Tikkun Olam, we are challenging each class in the entire Lower School to collect at least 100 cans to be donated to local food pantries. The final day of the drive is January 29th. 
 
Summer Camp at Adelson Campus registration has launched.  We are excited to  continue to offer the same excellent summer day camp experience, while enriching our existing programs and introducing even more thoughtful programming. Our talented staff is already planning for what will be another exciting and memorable summer at the Adelson campus. Registration is already filling up so please claim your spot today. Our early signup discount will end on January 31st and AEC students can use code “adelsonstudent” for an additional 5% off.

Attorney General Visit
This week, our 5th grade students had two very special visitors. As part of their unit on government, Nevada Attorney General and former Nevada State Senator Aaron Ford and his First Assistant Kyle George (father of 5th Grade student Mackenzie) spent time with our 5th graders. They spent an hour discussing the U.S. Constitution and the branches of power that make up our government. 
 
Preschool Igloo
In Preschool, our classes are learning about the Winter season. The Green Frogs set up a life-size igloo made out of recycled plastic bottles to simulate the snow huts that served as shelters for the Inuit people of Canada during cold winters. All of the preschool classes were invited to visit the shelter this week. 
 
Cooking Class 
Chef Aubrey’s cooking class has been working up some wonderful creations on Monday afternoons. This after school enrichment program gives students the opportunity to experience hands-on cooking led by our very own Chef Aubrey.

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.

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.

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.
