Garden Spring Cleaning

The weeds at Adams are thriving due to the rain! Therefore, Adams parent, Monica Kaderali, has organized a “pull the weeds” cleanup day on Sunday March 12th from 9am-12pm. Monica needs volunteers to stay anywhere from one to all three hours. She asks that you bring gloves if you have them. If you are interested in helping, please email Monica at for more details!

Thank you Monica and parent volunteers for helping to keep our campus beautiful!


Wellness Day TODAY

Our cafeteria chefs prepared green smoothies for our students to have with their lunch. The organic ingredients were also posted for the students to see how nutritious yet yummy they are to drink.
