FREE Tickets to Hansel and Gretel

The Audacious Foundation is sponsoring tickets for 30 people to attend the musical Hansel and Gretel on Sunday, March 12th at 3:00pm at Campbell Hall (UCSB). Please call our front office to reserve your tickets (Ernestina- 563-2515).

“What happens when a nationally produced playwright and kindie rock royalty team up to pen a musical? Witty prose, an incredible score and a thoroughly enjoyable theatrical experience.” Chicago Parent

Fairy tales rock! Beyond the snowy depths of The Black Forest, a daring sibling duo embarks on an icy adventure to rekindle the warmth in their home. The Grimm Brothers Band brings this sparkling fable to life with humor, heroism and a rock ’n’ roll score that is anything but grim.

The fun starts early! Bring your kids an hour before the Campbell Hall Family Fun events for balloons, face painting and crafts.


Chaucer's Night is Thursday, March 9th

Join us at Santa Barbara’s beloved bookstore, Chaucer’s, for a night of stories and book signing with special guest author Bruce Hale; 25% of all proceeds will go back to Adams.


Family Disco Bingo Night

Disco Bingo is back this Friday, February 24th starting at 6:00pm! Some may ask, "What is Disco Bingo?" Great question! Disco Bingo takes the fun of playing bingo and combines it with some great disco attire and tunes.  Dressing up is encouraged but not necessary!  When someone wins and shouts "Bingo" we all get up and dance to some fabulous 70's music to celebrate. It is a silly night of fun and prizes! We hope you can join us!

The cafeteria will be serving chicken enchilladas starting at 5:00. It is free for children and $4 per adult.


Read-A-Thon Fundraiser Kick Off is Thursday March 2nd

One of our most important fundraisers of the year combines your child’s love of reading with raising money for our school. We will kick it off by celebrating Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss’s birthday with a pajama day/reading event in all classrooms. This is an exciting fundraiser for our students and the more they read, the more money we raise. All the money earned will go directly to critical programs, services and materials for our students. Prizes and additional details will be announced soon.


Open House/Art Show/Science Fair

Our Open House / Art Show / Science Fair is Thursday; March 23rd. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to visit the Adams classrooms! You will see what your child has been working on along with what’s to come next year. Students will have their science projects on display in their classrooms, and a beautiful student art installation will be set up in the auditorium. Families can also visit the Scholastic Book Fair taking place that week in our library.
