APRIL BULLDOG BULLETIN
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.

Head lice are a common problem that usually affects school-aged children and their families. They can attach to the hair of anyone's head. It doesn't matter if the hair is clean or dirty. Head lice are also found worldwide in all different places, such as in homes or schools or the country or city. And it doesn't matter how clean, dirty, rich, or poor the place or person is.
Though head lice may be a nuisance, they don't cause serious illness or carry any diseases. Head lice can be treated at home, but it's important to check with the doctor first.
Please click on the links to learn more about the treatment and prevention of head lice.
Attendance is a key factor to having your child succeed in school. Therefore, it is very important that your child is at school on time. . . EVERYDAY. Students who miss just one or two days of school each month can fall seriously behind and lead to doing poorly in school and are more likely to not graduate. Every absence even if it is excused matters. They are missing learning when they are not here.
You are key to improving your child’s attendance.
On the flyer below there are a couple tips on how your child can be at school on time.
