What’s News at ADAT This Week: 10.11.17
Leadership Blog: Be Our “Street Team”
- One of the newest opportunities is our Parent Ambassador Program. This new program was created to engage parents in our effort to grow our Day School community. We are looking for parents who are passionate about Adat Ari El and want to share that passion with prospective families, as well as the greater community. This is an excellent opportunity to get involved with the marketing and admissions effort. Parent Ambassadors will attend Prospective Parent Open Houses, give school tours, and help spread the word about ADAT throughout the community. Training will be provided.
- Word of mouth is the number one reason people choose to attend (and stay at) a school. Talk to your friends, family, and neighbors … people want to hear the authenticity of our families! You never know who may be looking for a Jewish Day School or realize after speaking with you that they want to be a part of our community! (We’re happy to provide you with postcards to distribute to anyone to whom you are speaking.)
- Social Media is such an important way of communicating in today’s world. Post ADAT happenings on Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter, or share other people’s posts about our School. We want to share with anyone and everyone all about what we are doing here, so post, tag, and hashtag your images that exemplify the beauty of our school, whether it is a buddy playdate, a social action activity, or a picture of your family in a Sukkah.
- Get involved and volunteer! When others see your involvement, they will follow. And, an involved, active community only adds to our strength.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time. If you or someone you know is interested in attending our upcoming Prospective Parent Open House, click here to RSVP.
School News & Updates
Added Security to ADAT Campus
We wanted to give you some fabulous news! Thanks to a Homeland Security Grant, we were able to update our security cameras around the entire campus. The grant allowed us to install cameras around all outdoor spaces, which allows us to see what is happening outside at ALL TIMES and can be easily monitored from the Day School office. Over the year, you will continue to see many improvements in emergency protocols, as we continue to prioritize your children’s safety and security while on our campus.
During morning drop off please pull all the way to the front of the line – do not stop in the middle of the line. Have your children exit quickly from your car on the school side ONLY. Rivka Kaspi is there in the mornings to facilitate a swift drop off and maintain everyone’s safety. Try to have your car unloaded in a timely fashion so we do not create a large back up of cars. Also, whenever you exit the parking please turn RIGHT ONLY. Children may not be dropped off before 7:30 a.m. as there is NO SUPERVISION UNTIL 7:30 a.m.
Please note: Handicapped parking is reserved exclusively for individuals with a handicapped placard. Parking in these designated spots without a handicapped placard is prohibited.
Thank you in advance for following our parking lot protocol.

In ONE week (even with the Jewish holidays), we received an overwhelming number of registrations for this year’s Family Shabbaton! We have filled all 25 subsidized spots, but have already reached out to our sponsors to see if we could open up 10 more spots. We are thrilled to report that as of today, 10 more spots are available to you with a $250 discount per family, so register soon to take advantage of this incredibly generous opportunity! Registration will continue to be open (excluding the discounted rate) until October 20 when deposits are due.
