HUMPHREY NEEDS A HOME~ This month, everyone at Adams has been enjoying reading Friendship According to Humphrey through the One School, One Book program. As you may know, we have our very own hamster named Humphrey that has been going from classroom to classroom. Everybody LOVES Humphrey! As we finish up the book, it is time to find a forever home for our hamster friend. We have decided to hold a drawing. If your family would like to permanently adopt Humphrey, complete and return the permission slip attached to the Thursday Message by Thursday, May 30th. We will hold the drawing at the Flag Ceremony on Friday, May 31st. Please know owning a hamster is a big commitment, so offering to have him as your family pet should take careful consideration as he can not be returned.

ADAMS IS RECEIVING AN ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL~ Looking ahead to the 2019-2020 school year the Board of Education voted to provide two shared assistant principals for our larger elementary schools to help us better meet the needs of the students and community. Thus, Adams will share an administrator with Washington Elementary next year. We are excited to introduce Denise Granger as the Assistant Principal taking on this role. On Tuesday, May 14th she will be introduced to the community formally at the Board Meeting at 6 PM. Feel free to attend the meeting to extend a warm welcome along with the Washington community if your schedule permits. Next week Mrs. Granger will send out an introductory letter sharing more about her background and enthusiasm to join the Adams team! She comes highly qualified and looks forward to meeting and supporting you all!
