Preschool Back to School Night 
We had a wonderful showing of parents at back to school night on Wednesday. The leadership team opened the evening in the Beit Midrash, as they gave an overview of key characteristics that define our excellent preschool. Following the brief introduction, parents had the opportunity to spend time in their children’s classrooms, as they listened to the teachers share the many exciting learning opportunities that are planned for the school year. We are thrilled and honored for the opportunity to educate and care for your children this year. View Preschool Back to School Photos

Our school garden is producing some great harvest as of late. The gardening club gathered tomatoes, okra, chili peppers, and eggplant. The eggplant harvested by our garden club on Wednesday was used in the eggplant parmesan that was served at lunch on Thursday. It was a neat opportunity for our students to see the food go from “garden to table.” We look forward to trying many more veggies that our garden club students harvest during the school year.

Welcome 2019-2020 Shinshinim!

The Adelson Educational Campus welcomes our 2019-2020 Shinshinim, Inbar Hannes and Noam Chaouat.  Inbar is from Ramat Gan, which is close to Tel Aviv, and Noam is from a small village called Shimshit, in the northern part of Israel. The AEC shinshinim are ambassadors who will provide students and members of our community a living bridge and personal connection to Israel, through informal and experiential educational activities.
