Scholastic Book Fair

The annual Scholastic Book Fair will take place in our library Tuesday, March 21 through Thursday, March 23. All 1st through 6th grade students will be invited to visit the Book Fair during their morning and lunch recess times. Kindergarten students, as well as all Adams families, can visit the Book Fair during Open House from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 23rd. Look for a flyer later this week with a list of the books that will be available for purchase. Our school gets to keep a percentage of the proceeds, so it's a win-win for everyone!


Chaucer's Book Night a Success

We raised $1,096.54 for Adams during the 2-hour period where Chaucer's donated 25% of all purchases (including gift certificates). We also had 95 books that were purchased that night and donated to the library, classrooms, counseling office and special education by Adams students and their families.  This was a wonderful event!   A Big thank you to all the families that came out for a night of supporting our school, a local author and our favorite neighborhood book store and an extra special thank you to Adams Parent, Serena Weddle, for coordinating this fundraiser!
