Fun Run Wrap Up
What a great day we had with the Adams Elementary Fun Run. We could not have asked for better weather and all the kids brought the energy. A special thank you for our DJ Brian Morris!!
With your help, Adams Elementary raised $11,000 for classroom resources, related arts activities, staff appreciation, and field trips. We were just $1800 away from reaching our school goal. Thank you, parents, for all your support the weeks leading up to and Fun Run day, we could not do it without you!! We thank you for your continued support of Adams Elementary.
From the Art Room
Seeking donations! I’d love to have realistic animal toys to use as drawing models for our kids. They can’t be really big, yet big enough for 4-5 kids to circle around it and draw it. Any animal at all would be so appreciated! Or, if you see it at a sale or something on Facebook marketplace, tag me and let me know!
Another donation we ALWAYS need are baby wipes. These are so helpful in every grade level!
We hope to see all Veterans at the Veterans Day program! All grade levels have been working hard to learn about veterans and to create special projects to show their appreciation for their honorable service!

Flu season is upon us and will continue into spring. Peak season is sometimes as late as February. The influenza symptoms are fever, aches, sore throat, cough, headache, fatigue, and sometimes vomiting/diarrhea. It is the perfect time to get a flu shot for yourself and your child. The CDC recommends getting a flu shot by the end of October, but receiving the vaccinate at any point during flu season offers important protection against the virus. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies that protect against flu to develop in the body. The Marion County Health Department has flu shots for $20 for children, but they recommend that you call prior to coming to confirm availability. The south district office is located at 7551 Shelby St. Suite 200 Indianapolis IN 46227, phone number 221-5700. Influenza can be a mild illness for most healthy individuals, but people with health conditions are at increased risk of complications. The quick guidelines are to keep your kids home until they have been fever-free for 24 hrs without fever-reducing medicine prior to returning or vomiting/diarrhea free for 24 hrs prior to return. We recognize a fever as a temp over 100 degrees. So, thank you for following our guidelines and keeping your kids home when they are ill. This protects our kids at school who have conditions that could lead to complications from an illness such as influenza, and this will help your child fully recover and be less likely to have complications themselves. Keep encouraging them to wash their hands. It is the easiest and most effective way to avoid illness.
I have included a link from the Community website that includes a very cute hand washing video that you might want to watch with your child.
If you have not received a notice and your child is 1st-5th grade, you can assume your child passed the screening. If you have any questions about the testing or returning information after seeing a vision professional, please phone the clinic at 860-4289. If you got a referral notice and your student has glasses but forgot to wear them, please just let me know. I have some resources if the cost is keeping your student from an eye exam. I sent these home prior to fall break because I hope that will be a good time for scheduling an appointment if your child was referred.
