Adams Celebrates Earth Day

Happy Friday! This past Wednesday, April 22 was Earth Day. Even though it was a little cold this week, the Adams Elementary staff enjoyed getting outside and working in their yards, picking up trash, recycling, and going for walks. We hope that you enjoy this collection of Earth Day pictures, and that you are able to do some of the same with your family this weekend, too. If you look closely in the pictures, you'll see the newest, smallest member of the Adams Elementary School family! 

We miss you, but we look forward every day to seeing the work that you are doing and meeting with you online. Have a good Friday, and enjoy your weekend!

Principal's Message

Scott Cochran “Every day is a great day at Adams” is more than just a catch-phrase. Every day our award-winning teachers and staff strive to help our students learn, grow, and challenge themselves in every way possible, while paying attention to the whole child.

We provide a comprehensive education in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies, and every student also enjoys instruction in art, music, physical education, and world languages. Through STEM experiences, at every grade students explore Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. These experiences extend beyond the regular school day, as students are involved in many other opportunities at Adams, such as Girls on the Run, and First Lego League Robotics.

We are blessed with a diverse, wonderful community that supports the education of our students. As a result, we are excited about our new building updates taking place during the summer, and the 2019-20 school year. The entire building is being renovated, and we are adding on a new gym, cafeteria, and stage platform.

We look forward to seeing your children arrive every day, and thank you for the opportunity to work with them, to help them grow.
Yours in education,
Scott Cochran
