Character Education…Our Shared Responsibility

Dear Families,


Character education teaches the habits of thought and deeds 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 stands out demonstrating each trait.

50 Fun Summer Activities for Your Kids

Here are a few of the 50 fun summer activities listed. Below the link is provided for the rest of the fun activities.


  1. Bike rides. Take your kids out for a fun bike ride, either near your house, or if the kids are older, take them on a bike trail. Since it’s a hot summer day, make sure to bring water!
  2. Make ice cream. There isn’t a kid (or parent) in the world who would refuse ice cream on a hot summer day. This is a great kids activity in which parents can easily monitor. Here’s a great guide on creating your very own vanilla ice cream.
  3. Meet friends at the local playground. Call up your friends and let the kids hang out together at a local playground, where they can play on swing sets, merry go rounds, and more.
  4. Have a picnic at a local or state park. Getting kids together for a picnic at a local or state park can be a fun group activity. Just make sure to find some shade!
  5. Sidewalk chalk murals. Get some fun colored chalk for your kids and you can create some really fun chalk murals and designs. Here are a few cool designs for inspiration.
  6. Backyard camping. Your kids may be too small to go camping at a campsite or park, but why not start in the backyard?
  7. Backyard stargazing. Put out a few blankets and lie down in your backyard, and gaze upon the stars. Show your kids how to locate Orion’s Belt and many other stars. Here’s a great stargazing guide.
  8. Check out the local county fair. Most major cities will have some sort of carnival or county fair which will definitely delight your kids.
  9. Kids science experiments. If your kids want to stay indoors, no problem – increase their brain power and curiosity with these awesome fun and easy science experiments for kids!
  10. Local tennis camp. Tennis is one of those sports that most kids don’t get to play during the school year. But your town likely has a fun kids tennis camp that your kid can enjoy.

Medication at school

Happy Summer!


If your student has medication at school, please remember to pick it up to take home on the last day of school (July 17, 2022). We will need a new medication form signed by your provider for the next school year.

Also, if your student has dietary restrictions/accommodations, you will also need to submit a new form completed and signed by your child's provider.


Have a safe and fun summer and don't forget your sunscreen!!

Office Tips

Attendance

Dear Parents,


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.



Sincerely,


Your Office Staff
