ADL C.A.R.E.S. Day

On Thursday, June 10, we are celebrating ADL C.A.R.E.S. Day! Over the past few weeks, our Chargers have been challenged to finish the year strong by participating in the ADL C.A.R.E.S. Challenge. C.A.R.E.S. stands for:

CELEBRATE: to show happiness and joy for someone

APPRECIATE: to recognize the importance and worth of someone

RESPECT: to act in a way that shows someone their needs are important

EMPOWER: to remind someone of their strength and their ability to make choices and create change

SHINE: to share a hopeful attitude and ideas with others

We have some fun activities planned for Thursday, including kicking off the day with an outdoor performance by our ADL Rock Band!

8th Grade Promotion Celebration:

8th Grade parents and families should be on the lookout for email updates this Friday with reminders about the 8th grade promotion celebration planned for Monday, June 14th!


We are grateful to our A World of Difference student leaders for their important contributions to our school all year. Check out this short video to learn more about how AWOD is engaging students in equity work to promote a safe, welcoming, and inclusive school community at ADL.
