Adams Family newsletter
November 14 - November 18
From the principal's desk
Please mark your calendars for this Thursday, November 17. It is our Fall Extravaganza. There will be activities, games, pizza and maybe even ice cream! The event runs from 5-7. All families are welcome to attend.
Families, as the weather starts to get colder, please make sure that students come to school with winter gear. Students go out for recess everyday unless it is colder than 0 degrees or minus 10 windchill. If your family needs winter gear, our school social worker is a great resource.
Enjoy your weekend and stay warm!

What an October! We had the RedHawks Fun Run, which was a blast. Thank you to everyone who came out to cheer and special thanks to those who grabbed a marker and recorded laps! The Adams PAC hosted their Spooky Science night, with CRHS student volunteers. The experiments were a big hit! And we've had volunteers doing workroom projects, hanging artwork, and assisting on Picture Day. You are awesome!
What's coming up:
- K-Skillbuilders (View a training, then work one-on-one with students to build their math and literacy skills. School day hours.)
Character Strong - Gratitude
