The staff at Adams Elementary is dedicated to helping students learn and grow academically, socially, and emotionally. Here at Adams, we focus on PRIDE. We use PRIDE as a way of teaching, encouraging, and reinforcing behavior.

PRIDE stands for—

  • Perseverance – Keep trying even when it is hard.
  • Respect – Be kind to others.
  • Integrity – Be truthful and do the right thing
  • Diversity – Appreciate differences.
  • Excellence – Always do your best.

When caught in the act of showing PRIDE, students are given an “Awesome Alligator Award” by a staff member. During the year, students also earn PRIDE awards, special assemblies and other recognition for being a positive part of what makes Adams awesome!
