What’s News at ADAT This Week: 1.5.18
Welcome back to school and Happy New Year! I hope you all had a restful and restorative Winter Break with your families.
2018 is in full swing at ADAT! We have loved having our students back on campus and jumped right back into our busy routine of learning, collaborating, thinking, and creating. We have so much planned for 2018 – from our grade level parlor meetings in January, IGD and Purim in February, our Shabbaton in March, to our Annual Celebration in April, and so much more! We cannot wait to share the rest of this school year with you and to plan together for next year.
Please note that we have some important deadlines fast approaching in regards to the 2018-2019 school year!
- Monday, January 8: Financial Aid forms due for returning families
- Friday, February 9: Re-enrollment contracts distributed
- Friday, March 2: Re-enrollment contracts due
Your adherence to these deadlines ensures that we can properly plan for a strong school in the coming year. Thank you in advance for complying with our timeline.
Cheers to a full 2018 filled with good health, meaningful experiences, and building community – together!

How long have you been at ADAT?
I have been here since Mommy and Me.
What do you do for fun outside of school?
I play soccer, basketball, baseball, and video games. Right now, I really like soccer the best.
What do you like best about ADAT or makes ADAT so special?
The way they teach. The teachers have a sense of humor and make us laugh. It makes it easier to learn everything they’re trying to teach us.
What was your favorite grade at ADAT and why?
Probably 6th grade. We get a lot of privileges because we’re the oldest in the school and we are role models. We get to go to San Francisco, Pali Camp, and we get to go together on different trips and adventures.
What will you miss most about ADAT when you move on to Middle School?
I will miss the teachers.
What is something you learned at ADAT that you think will stay with you in the future?
What I learned that will stay with me is how to be kind. I learned how to share when I was little, and I think it helped me be a better big brother.
What is it about Design Thinking that has helped you learn differently?
Being in that environment has helped because there are a lot of materials to use for our work, and it’s a lot more fun. I pay better attention when I’m having more fun!
