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.
Spring Music Programs
During April, all students at Adams will be working hard to get ready for their Spring Music Programs. The music performances will be happening right here, at Adams, on May 11th. Kinder and 1st grade will be performing their show "Panda and the Moon" in the morning. 2nd and 3rd graders will be singing songs from movies in the afternoon. Finally, the 4th and 5th graders will end our day of music with an evening performance about change, friendship, and new beginnings. Stay tuned for more details!

National Assistant Principals Week April 3rd - 7th -- Thank you Mr. Contreras for all your hard work
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.

Handouts for Families - Attendance Works
We celebrated our amazing classified staff the week of March 13th - 17th (Here are 12 pictures from our many pictures from our staff newsletter) We appreciate our amazing para-educators
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.
