Thank you for helping us support our students, families and teachers at John Adams Middle School PTSA!

We have almost met our Give to the Max goal. The John Adams Middle School PTSA supports enrichment opportunities in the classroom as well as school wide activities for all families throughout the year! This would not be possible without the generous donations we receive from our John Adams community!


Each year the PTSA makes an effort to raise funds to support the programs listed below, and so much more at John Adams.

  • Breakfast of Champions
  • Student of the Month Breakfast
  • Eighth Grade Recognition
  • Staff Appreciation
  • Support Teachers Class Room Requests
  • Field Trips
  • Support PAW Store
  • And so much more!

If we raise just $10 per student, we will meet our goal for this year!! Our fundraiser will run through Wednesday, November 23. This will be our main fundraiser, so let's meet our goal! https://www.givemn.org/story/V68bpf


Sincerely,

The John Adams PTSA

End of the Quarter Awards for Attendance and Academics

Each quarter we recognize students who meet criteria for attendance and academics. This quarter, the goal was for students to have 5 or less tardies and zero unexcused absences. 57% of our students met these criteria for the first quarter! Our goal for quarter 2 is three or less tardies and zero unexcused absences. Keep it up Jaguars!


Our awards for academics are based on GPA and are split into 3 categories: Straight A’s, A Honor Roll, B Honor Roll. Below is a list of students who qualified for these awards.
