Please join us in the auditorium on Monday, December 4th from 12:30-1:10, as Tal Derei, class of 2018, presents his documentary, "Halt the Salt" about the effects of salt on the vegetation of Mt. Charleston. Tal, along with his guest panel of researchers, will answer questions after the viewing.  With the use of drones built in the Incubator and the mentoring of Mr. Herringshaw and Mr. Wilde, Tal was able to complete his ambitious research project and documentary.  
Wednesday, December 6th is the Winter Revelry-join us from 3:30-5:00 for a celebration of the arts!  This year's Winter Revelry we celebrate student life, focusing on the influences of bullying and social media.  Social media, and the way we consume information has changed. These outside forces manipulate how we perceive things and influence our choices.  We acknowledge the importance of being aware of how we relate to the influences of social media, and celebrate this through Art, Music, Theater, and Dance.  Please join us on Wednesday December 6th in front of the Adelson Theater to "refresh" and "log in" to what is happening in the Adelson Arts!
The Ugly Holiday Sweater Slamapalooza is coming!  Don your ugliest holiday sweater, bring your kosher food items or $ donation, and get ready to be entertained by spoken word, dance, and music performances from Adelson, Faith, and Meadows high school students!  See YOU on Wednesday, December 13th from 6:00-7:30.  All 8th-12th graders and above are welcome!
After School Study Hall operates Monday through Thursday from 3:15 to 4:30 in room 302.  Get a jump on exams and study smarter not harder!
