We truly appreciate your support of these fundraisers that benefit EVERY student at Adams.  We use funds from Jog-a-thon and Reading Olympics to pay for countless field trips, play admissions, garden project, musical instruments, transportation, act supplies, school-wide events, engineering night, Earth Day celebration and much more.

Thanks to the generous support of Adams families, we rarely need to ask for other small contributions from families when planning for student enrichment opportunities.  THANK YOU!  THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

Family STEM Night – Tomorrow from 6-8


Come and explore fun, hands-on, minds-on science, technology, engineering and math activities with your child.  No experience necessary.

We still need a few volunteers to make this event a success.  Learn more HERE





Proposed Schedule Changes – Draft Two

School Schedules to Change Next Year: Share Your Views

District seeking feedback on second draft schedule. 

To learn more, review the draft schedule, and provide feedback, see
To provide enough instruction time for students, fair and equal learning time at all schools, and consistent schedules for families, Eugene School District 4J is changing to a consistent calendar and standard schedules for all schools in 2018–19. The schedule details will be decided this spring.
A first draft schedule was published in March for staff, parent, student and community input. The district has now taken the input received and developed a second draft schedule for further review and feedback.
The second schedule draft responds to staff and families’ input with a shorter early release on Wednesdays, earlier start and end times for high school, slightly earlier times for middle school, and as many elementary school start times as possible closer to their current times.
The draft schedules provide for elementary schools to schedule 60 minutes of recess and lunch within the regular school day—a little more time than currently provided at most schools and grades. Middle and high schools also would schedule about 60 minutes of lunch, breaks and passing periods during the school day.
Parents and students are invited to take a few minutes to review the second schedule draft and share your feedback in an online input form. Your input is important.

Cell Phones and Tablets at School

If your child brings a phone or tablet to school to be able to communicate with home after school hours, it is our expectation that the device be turned off and stowed in her or his backpack as soon as they arrive at school. 

If the device is not for communication, but for entertainment, games, etc, we would like it left at home as with other toys or distracting items. 

Thank you for reviewing these expectations with your child.

Fire Drill on Friday

We will conduct a fire drill and evacuation on Friday.  Student and staff will be alerted over the intercom prior to the actual alarm sounding.  At that time we will evacuate the building to the blacktop, account for all students and then return to the building and resume instruction.  If you have any questions about this drill, please contact the office.
