Stock Market Game Nevada
The Stock Market Game is a 7 month, nationwide competition where students are given a fictitious $100,000 and are able to invest in the Stock Market in real time.  Students learn about stocks, bonds, markets, and are able to develop their own trading strategy. High School student Brent W. finished second in the high-school division of the state with a final portfolio value of just over $101,200. What was Brent’s strategy?  Brent states that he “invested in Walmart, Take-Two Interactive, Best Buy, and invested in a few commodities like gold.  I got lucky in that I was not too heavily invested in December when the stock market tanked. I played the game conservatively and was able to do well based on the market’s performance these last few months.”  Mazel Tov to Brent and his math instructor Mr. Hemsworth for placing second in the State of Nevada.

From the Upper School Leadership Team:
As we head into exam week, we reflect on the achievements of our students this year.  Together, we have grown a great deal from engaging, independently and collaboratively, in challenging content and learning experiences in and out of the classroom.  We have also participated in the life of our school through dances, tikkun olam, arts, and sports. Important to us are our Jewish values and traditions. We are grateful to work and learn in a place where we observe and honor our traditions and celebrate Shabbat as a community.  
 
We wish you a safe, happy, and restful summer!  Know that we will be working and planning for a wonderful 2019-2020 school year.

Yom Ha’Zikaron
Yom Ha’Zikaron is the national day of remembrance observed in Israel, honoring Israeli military personnel who lost their lives in the struggle that led to the establishment of the State of Israel, and for those who have subsequently been killed while on active duty in the Israeli armed forces or victims of terror. To honor this day, the upper school community gathered together to participate in a beautiful ceremony memorializing the fallen soldiers and the sacrifices they made defending Israel.  The community stood quietly during the one minute siren and students and teachers took part in the ceremony laying wreaths and reading letters from soldiers.
 
Yom Ha'atzmaut
As solemn a day as Yom Ha’Zikaron was, Yom Ha’atzmaut was as joyous of a celebration.  The festivities kicked off with a flag ceremony in the theater followed by an Israeli outdoor lunch.  Upper school students participated in many Israeli sports. Students played catchball with members of the JCC women’s catchball team. They learned Israeli army exercises as well as engaging in a number of Israeli board games.  It was a wonderful way for the AEC community to celebrate Israel. VIEW PHOTOS

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!”

Students then broke off into small groups for a time of mourning, reflection, and learning. VIEW PHOTOS
 
Project Chessed collaboration with our sister school in Hungary
Ms. Toomey’s 10th grade Project Chessed class decided to send their favorite American Kosher snacks to a class of students at the Lauder Javne School in Budapest, Hungary.  The students from Lauder Javne School were introduced via video to Project Chessed Students during the visit in February by some of the teachers from the Lauder Javne School.  In response, our friends from Hungary decided to send their favorite Hungarian Kosher snacks. Both sets of students included notes to their new friends. We hope the collaboration will continue when some of our students from Adelson visit Hungary next school year as part of the exchange program.
 
Of special note for next week:
On Wednesday, May 8th, in observance of Yom HaZikaron, everyone should wear a white shirt with uniform bottoms.  We will NOT have spirit wear on this day.

Project Chesed Intergenerational Lunch with the JCC

6th Grade Class uses Graphing Calculators to Code
This week, the 6th grade Coding class co-taught by Ms. Toomey experienced a new type of coding.  They coded on the TI-Nspire graphing calculators to make a rover move and create shapes. These 6th graders showed perseverance, grit and critical thinking skills as they moved through the coding process in order to program the rover to follow specific instructions.
 
5th/6th grade Seder
5th and 6th grade participated in a joint student-led Seder. In the learning process, the students each researched one part of the Haggadah. They found multiple commentaries on why and how we do each part of the Seder and brought their creativity to the forefront in presenting their parts to their fellow peers. VIEW PHOTOS
 
On Monday, April 9th, 7th and 8th graders and 9th-11th graders enjoyed respective seders on the patio.  Jackie Edery, who will be joining our Judaics faculty in the Upper School next year, came from LA to lead our students in a fun and educational but shortened seder.  The kitchen prepared seder plates with traditional foods, and each student ate matzah with chocolate spread. Ms. Boatnik led us in traditional songs accompanied by Mr. Philippus and the band while students took part in the seder by leading prayers and reading texts.  Mr. Edery even had students learn about the ten plagues by playing a bowling game to "knock" down each plague. The seders were a great way to learn more about Pesach and celebrate together!

 
ERB Testing
Our 6th grade students begin ERB testing on Tuesday, April 30th!
For parent tips on helping your student prepare for testing, please CLICK HERE for information presented from the Student Service Team.
 
A special message from the Student Service Team:
When we return from Pesach break, our middle school students begin taking the ERB standardized tests.  Our teachers and students have worked hard all year and are well prepared for these test. We know that standardized testing is taxing on our students and we want to continually encourage them during this week.  The Student Services Team is asking that you partner with us to help keep the students' spirits high during their week of testing. We are making an individual flag for each student with a positive message. We would love for you to send in a positive quote, mantra or maybe even song lyrics personalized for your child that we can place on an additional flag that they will be able to see during testing week.  Please send in your message of encouragement with your students' full name to Maria.paxinos@adelsoncampus.org.

Students spent time catching up with the new friends they bonded with in December during their first field trip to Silver Sky. Our students entertained the Silver Sky residents by hosting a talent show. Students told jokes, played the guitar, salsa danced and sang songs! One of the residents even joined the students on stage and decided to sing two songs as well! Both the students and residents had a lot of fun and we look forward to spending more time at Silver Sky in the future.
 
Thursday night the 9th and 10th grade students along with their Humanities teachers, Ms. Moyal, Ms. Levi-Agami and Mr. Naftly participated in a Lock-In-Overnight.  These brave souls were locked in the school overnight and engaged in games, team building activities, and a service project. They watched a movie and enjoyed popcorn. A fun time was had by all!
 
Our 9th-12th grade students participated in a special Pride Period seminar where Mr. Girard, our college counselor, led a discussion with students on the latest college admission scandal.  The students were so well informed and had thoughtful comments and insightful questions. Many students look forward to continuing this discussion.

Darby Kankoski -  Darby is always pleasant and helpful to her peers and teachers.  She is a great teammate in both volleyball and basketball.

This past week, the Shinshiniot have been working with some of our 7th grade students to produce a short video to be entered into a contest sponsored by the Embassy of Israel and SpaceIL, celebrating Israel's advancements and achievements in space.  The premise of the video is that Beresheet, the first Israeli spacecraft to touch down on the moon, meets an alien there named Bork.  Bork is curious to learn about Judaism and Israel.
