Adams Elementary


Greetings to our Adams Family,

February and March have been very busy here at Adams. I am so excited to share all of the events and activities that we have hosted. We held our Friendship parties on February 14th. Thank you to all of the room parents who assisted with organizing this special occasion. We also had fun with our Fabulous Fun Fridays in February with our staff. Our student council sponsored our Jar Wars for Riley and we held our Jump Rope for Heart.

Part I of ISTEP+ Applied Skills was completed this week and we are looking ahead to the 3rd grade IREAD assessment on March 13-17 for our 3rd grade students. If your student is a 3rd grade student, please ensure that they are in attendance during these three days. It is a small testing window of a few days and all 3rd grade readers in Indiana are required to take this assessment.

We are also excited about our Art Club, Drama Club, Robotics Club and monthly ALL PRO Dad Breakfasts. We will also be holding a Mother/Son event on Friday, March 3 from 6:30-8:00 PM. Than you again for all you do to support Adams.

Have a super and safe spring break!

Always learning,

Mrs. Schoene

A note from Transportation....

March 7, 2017

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Here are just a few reminders from transportation:

a. If a student misses their bus, they should NOT chase or follow the bus to board the bus at another stop. This is extremely dangerous and can result in serious injury.

b. Please have students at their stops 5-10 minutes before their assigned time. Students should be waiting at their stops.

c. We do not give out bus passes. Students must ride their assigned bus and be dropped off or picked up at their assigned stop.

We will be conducting evacuation drills after Spring Break. Students will be given a situation and asked to evacuate the bus. These drills are required by DOE and conducted at each school. It is our goal to prepare your student and our staff members for the unexpected need to safely evacuate a school bus in the event of an emergency situation. This practice exercise will be handled professionally with the same attention to safety as a school fire drill.

Also, you might be interested in driving a school bus. We provide the training and pay you for 50 hours of that training. Once you have finished training and passed the test for your CDL license, we will have another driver, drive with you for at least 8 hours. We offer bus drivers health, vision, and dental insurance and retirement benefits. You would drive approximately 5.75 hours a day and have from around 9:00-1:45 to run errands in the middle of the day. Bus drivers start at $16.00 an hour. Call Jamie Caylor at 862-2314 if you have questions.
