Adams Update – 5.14.18 Reading Olympics, Dates, Health

Happy Monday Adams Families,

I hope that families had a restful weekend and took some time to celebrate, honor and  remember all the mothers out there.  I am mindful each Mother’s Day of the powerful role moms play in the lives of our students.  I am also very aware that we have an incredible community of people serving in mother-like roles.  Thank you to everyone who steps up to care for, nurture and encourage a young person to be his or her best, whether you are a mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, neighbor, aunt friend foster parent or sibling, we appreciate you!

~ Principal Kevin

Reading Olympics Continue… Packets Due 5/16

Keeping the Olympic spirit alive with the Reading Olympics!

Envelopes have begun coming in.  Please collect any pledges and donations made to your reading Olympian and return the envelope to his or her teacher. 

Will have a total of funds raised so far by tomorrow.  If you still have pledges or donations to collect, please do so and send those in this week.

Celebrating Success!

If we raise $12,000 – I will dye my hair green

If we raise $14,000 – I’ll dye my hair green and shave off 1/2 of my beard

If we raise $16,000 – I’ll dye my hair green, shave off 1/2 of my beard and take a plunge in a dunk tank filled with ice water.

Keep those pledges rolling in!

If you have completed the Ems Sluggo Reading Challenge book mark, that may be turned in at this time as well.

You can make a donation here or use this link to share with friends and family:

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!

NEXT STEP E-Waste Recycling is ON!

As a part of our premier green school program and partnership for sustainable schools, we are teaming up to keep electronics out of the landfill.  All this week, you can drop off any electronics (runs or ran on a battery or cord), WORKING  or NOT WORKING at our collection bin near the front office. If you have larger items, you can take them directly to Next Step.

Got a bunch of stuff like old computer parts, toasters, alarm clocks, and more taking up space at home or work? Why hang on to it? We want it! Bring it by to one of our Recycling center and we will refurbish it.   If we can’t fix it, we recycle it for you, working with eSteward and R2 Certified Recyclers. Remember the Eugene Recycling Center is located near the corner of West 10th Ave and Garfield St.

Adams Update – Pertussis Information 5.9.18

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 and not turned back on until having left 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.
