Shinshinim Shabbat
What an amazing Kabbalat Shabbat this week featuring our Shinishim! The Shinshinim reviewed the poll results from each grade discussing their favorite part from the school year.  The 3rd grade also presented their Israel projects using one of their favorite songs “Eretz Israel sheli yafa”. We also watched a video from the past featuring the 5th grade perform our school's fight song. Watch the videos: Shinshinim Shabbat | 3rd Grade Presentation | 5th Grade Fight Song
Teacher Appreciation 
Thank you to our amazing teachers and students for another successful week in remote learning. This week was teacher appreciation week, and many parents as well as PTO volunteers made it a memorable week for our excellent teachers. Volunteers went the extra mile (literally) and delivered gifts to the homes of many of our teachers. We want to take a moment and thank our teachers for the fantastic work that they have done in restructuring their teaching practices and continuing to engage our young learners during this unprecedented time. We are proud and grateful to have such stellar and committed teachers at the Adelson Educational Campus. 
Fitness Bingo
Twelve students in our Lower School completed the Fitness Bingo Challenge. Fitness Bingo was designed as a year-long challenge aimed to promote staying active with your family. The challenges included running a 5k, walking/running a mile, family swim, bike riding, family hikes, climbing wall, winter activities like skiing or ice skating, playing at a park, eating a healthy dinner, outdoor activities, and jump rope. Coach Lamph hand-delivered fitness swag baskets for the students who completed it. The students who completed the challenge were:
Owen Atlas, Myra Ravizza , Ambra Ravizza, Elliot Zargari, Talia Zargari, Ido Goren, Lior Goren, Zenn Danner, Rafi Meyers, Jasmine Meyers, Leo Potashnick, Gita Erlichman, Hanna Erlichman 
Junior Kindergarten to Outer Space!
The JK students embarked on a journey to outer space! Our students learned about space and astronauts through many fun books and activities. Each student made their very own space helmets.
