For Adat students, Tikkun Olam—repairing the world—is not just a beautiful idea, it’s an initiative for action, woven into the fabric of daily life.
Adat kids don’t just talk about how they can help those less fortunate and make the world a better place, they go out there and do it.
Our goal is for our students to internalize and implement Jewish values in all aspects of their lives. Every other month, a new value is presented by the Director of Judaic Studies for the entire school to explore.
Our anti-bullying strategies put the adults in the lead, to support children as they learn how to treat others and understand their right to be treated with respect. Our “Beat the Odds” drumming program for fifth graders helps students learn social and emotional development delivered in a framework of drumming. Students are put in a situation where everyone is on equal footing–no child has more or less power than anyone else—and they learn the essentials of mutual respect. Our entire staff also studies Caltha Crowe’s How To Bullyproof Your Classroom and implements strategies to create classrooms in which bullying and meanness diminishes and kindness flourishes.
