Pride in Excellence and Community:
 
Arts Celebration- This week we celebrated the Arts at Adelson with a virtual concert full of live performances, visual art, photography and video projects.  We also had a special thank you to the seniors for their huge influence on the success of the Arts thriving here on campus.  The content was beautiful and showed a diverse set of talents with student photography accompanied with music from the Digital music class, and live performances accompanying the Visual Art segment, cooking segments, documentaries, and the Jazz band got to share their music by recording individually and then assembling their recordings into videos so you could still have that ensemble sound! The tribute to the seniors also brought out a lot of smiles and of course some tears were shed.  It has been a wild year, and what better way to celebrate and come together in these trying times then sharing Art.  Art inspires, motivates, and it also heals. The Arts remind us of what is important, and we are very lucky to have such talented students and teachers to help keep the Arts thriving and growing here at Adelson.

This week in 7th grade Life Science, Donovan Guzman of the Get Outdoors Nevada foundation came to talk to our classes about desert tortoises and the Mojave Max program. We learned about their special adaptations for living in the desert, where they go when it gets too hot or too cold and how we can best protect them.
