Asa C. Adams School Newsletter

June 2023

Dear Asa Families,

June is here and it's almost an unreal revelation that the 2022-2023 school year is coming to an end. It has been such a privilege and honor to serve as the principal of Asa C. Adams, and for Ms. West to serve as the assistant principal in this flagship year together. We have had the pleasure of supporting students, families, and staff to continue making our school the best place for teaching and learning to take place.

We very much look forward to the work ahead and continuing to move this unique, brilliant school community into the future. In the meanwhile, we hope that you and your family look forward to the many joys that summer break may bring and that you are able to take this time to rejuvenate while enjoying the pleasure of summer time in Maine.

Finally, even though it may be summer...we are here if you need us. Happy summer!


Ms. Wyman and Ms. West

The final day of Pre-Kindergarten will be on Monday, June 12th.

The final day of school for students in Grades K-5 will be an Early Release Day on Tuesday, June 13th.

Asa Summer Hours

The school will be open during the summer on:

Tuesday and Thursday from 9am to 4pm. Wednesday from 9am to 11am.

The building will be open other varying hours over the summer. Feel free to try us. However, the best time to reach the office will be on those days and times.

Asa C. Adams PTO Update

The PTO would like to graciously thank all families for the support they provided this school year during events and fundraisers. Without the support of Asa families, things like the annual Memory Book would not be possible, the monthly coffee carts appreciating school staff, or the donation of a Gaga Pit for the PE program, as well as staff dinners during conferences and staff appreciation week meals. So, thank you, thank you, thank you for your support of Asa students and staff.

The 2023-2024 PTO officers have been elected and will officially take over in early July.

Nicole Spaulding- President
