  • College T-Shirt on Wednesdays

    Dear Parents, This year our school is participating in college and career readiness. This means that our entire student population is encouraged to wear a t-shirt representing a university every Wednesday. It is not mandatory but is encouraged. If students wear a university t-shirt, they may wear jeans with the shirt instead of uniform pants. If you have any questions, please contact the office.

    This new visitor management system will allow us to monitor all visitors in our school and provide us with a safer environment for our students and staff. All visitors must provide a valid state ID and will be screened to block access to sex offenders. Once a visitor passes the screening process, he or she will be given a visitor pass to Adams School. For those who don't have a valid ID with them, can still gain access to our school, but will be escorted.

Principal's Message

  • love my school

    John Adams Families,

    What a wonderful year we experienced togther! Thank you, to all of our families for supporting your children's education at home! Our students celebrated success at our final trimester awards assembly and in their classrooms with many celebrations! Students set "stretch goals" for themselves on the MAP test in reading and math, and so many of them made their personalized goals! They enjoyed this achievement with a "Flash Mob" party on the blacktop with me! We had so much fun and performed our Flash Mob at our final morning assembly. Parents, and caregivers- we want to ask for your help in preventing what we call "The Summer Slide". Oftentimes, when students return to school after summer vacation, we see a huge dip in their reading level and math proficiency. We ask that you make sure your children read the books we sent home to borrow and complete the summary sheets. Also, make sure to have them continue to use Lexia or Reading Plus along with JiJi over the summer! This will help prevent them from forgetting all they've learned this year. Also, take them to the public library and check out additional books! Practice math facts with flash cards! Give them problems to solve when you're in the market or restaurant! Ask them to tell you all about the books they are reading, even if he/she needs to translate for you! This verbal practice will help with their comprehension. And plese have lots of fun together this summer, making memories! See you on August 12th! The list of teacher assignements will be posted on Friday, August 9th, after 12:00 p.m. on the gate. Thank you for being amazing parents and caregivers!

    ¡Qué maravilloso año vivimos juntos! ¡Gracias a todas nuestras familias por apoyar la educación de sus hijos en casa! ¡Nuestros estudiantes celebraron el éxito en nuestra asamblea de premios del último trimestre y en sus aulas con muchas celebraciones! Los estudiantes establecen "objetivos exigentes" para ellos mismos en el examen MAP en lectura y matemáticas, ¡y muchos de ellos lograron sus objetivos personalizados! ¡Disfrutaron este logro con una fiesta "Flash Mob" en el blacktop conmigo! Nos divertimos mucho y realizamos nuestro Flash Mob en nuestra asamblea final de la mañana. Padres y cuidadores: queremos pedirle su ayuda para prevenir lo que llamamos "La Diapositiva de Verano". A menudo, cuando los estudiantes regresan a la escuela después de las vacaciones de verano, vemos una gran caída en su nivel de lectura y dominio de las matemáticas. Le pedimos que se asegure de que sus hijos lean los libros que enviamos a casa para pedir prestado y que completen las hojas de resumen. Además, ¡asegúrate de que sigan usando Lexia o Reading Plus junto con JiJi durante el verano! Esto ayudará a evitar que olviden todo lo que han aprendido este año. Además, ¡llévelos a la biblioteca pública y vea libros adicionales! ¡Practica hechos matemáticos con tarjetas flash! ¡Dales problemas para resolver cuando estás en el mercado o en un restaurante! Pídales que le cuenten todo sobre los libros que están leyendo, ¡incluso si él / ella necesita traducir para usted! Esta práctica verbal ayudará con su comprensión. ¡Y diviértanse juntos este verano, haciendo recuerdos! ¡Nos vemos el 14 de agosto! La lista de asignaciones de maestros se publicará el viernes 9 de agosto, después de las 12:00 p.m. en la puerta ¡Gracias por ser padres y cuidadores increíbles!
