At Adelson we believe in the power of an integrated curriculum. Our 2nd graders had a Symbols Fair this week to culminate their social studies unit.

Math, social studies, science, technology, writing, reading, Hebrew, music, and art were all incorporated... Read More

Was it playing a part in a class play, singing in the choir, playing an instrument or having your work of art exhibited at school? The arts experiences are often the fondest and most vivid memories of our school days.   We are so fortunate to benefit from the mission of the Smith Center to build similar lifetime memories by offering high-quality arts...
