This Week in Lower School 8/14-8/18, 2017

Friday, August 18, 2017
It’s finally the start of the school year and we couldn’t be happier to welcome all our students. The lower school and preschool have been abuzz with students getting to know their new teachers, reuniting with old friends, and making new ones. Students have had big smiles as they worked through an exciting, rewarding, first week. But why take our word for it? Here’s what our scholars are saying:

Preschoolers, on what the best part of their week was:

“I ran on the track, that was really fun.”

“We made a lot of noise in music.”

“I wrote my name!”

Lower Schoolers, on their favorite activities:

“This is my favorite thing, STEM teams. We’re stacking cardboard in different ways for STEM. That’s science, and this is architecture.”

“I like learning Hebrew because my parents don’t speak Hebrew. I get to teach them.”

“I love PE games!”

“We’re writing Hebrew in cursive!”

Our students are being challenged and invigorated by their amazing teachers. We asked our newest educators about their first week as an Adelson teacher:

“This is going to sound corny and campy- but I’ve died and gone to heaven. The kids are wonderful. The sensibility of small classes, it’s fantastic.”

“Exciting. Definitely exciting!”
Exciting is a perfect way to sum up this week, and we’ve got a whole year of fun and new experiences ahead of us!
As a quick reminder, parents in carline need to stay in their vehicles when picking up their children; if you wish to stop and rebuckle your child, please do so out of the line. Parents who come into the school to pick up their children need to wait in the lobby, or outside of the preschool doors. Please do not go to your child’s class as this may interrupt precious learning time.
Please join us for Shabbat every Friday.
