Character Education…Our Shared Responsibility
Character education teaches the habits of thought and deed that help people live and work together as families, friends, neighbors, communities, and nations.
Our staff at Adams Elementary are looking for students who are demonstrating Fortitude, which is our character word this month. Please encourage your child to practice each word of the month. There is a different character word each month. Teachers recognize one student every month who stand out demonstrating each trait.
During conference week students will be released at noon (12pm)
November 11: No School due to Veteran's Day

Mrs. Perez's Tips
Tips for Elementary School Families
Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school -- and themselves. Start building this habit in preschool so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. Eventually, good attendance will be a skill that will help them succeed in high school and college. Below there are some tips:
Set a regular bedtime and morning routine.
Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.
Develop backup plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call on a family member, a neighbor, or another parent.
Avoid medical appointments and extended trips when school is in session.
Keep in mind that complaints of a stomachache or headache can be a sign of anxiety and not a reason to stay home. If your child seems anxious about going to school, talk to teachers, school counselors and other parents for advice on how to make your child feel comfortable and excited about learning.
If your child must stay home due to illness, ask the teacher for resources and ideas to continue learning at home.
