BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT PARENT SURVEY~ We are sending home (paper only copy) a very short survey to help us identify our families' needs and ways to increase attendance at our back to school night event. We would like to have 100% of our families attend this important informational meeting, and this year we were discouraged by the low attendance. 


WALK OR BIKE TO SCHOOL DAY~ Did you know that walking and bicycling to school enables children to incorporate the regular physical activity they need each day while also forming healthy habits that can last a lifetime. Enjoy the sounds of the neighborhood, see friends and neighbors and feel connected with your community. Parents, children, and friends can enjoy each other’s company without the usual distractions. Please join us on October 2 for Walk to School Day! Prize incentives, as well as smoothies, will be provided for all walkers and bikers, as well as those who ride the bus since they are participating in sustainable transportation!  We will have multiple meet up spots for those who would like to join a walking or bike train. Please feel free to join at any of these neighborhood locations: *Samarkand- Corner of San Onofre and Clinton Terrace at 8:00 am led by Christen Foell.*Hidden Valley- Corner of Veronica Springs and Modoc at 7:40 led by Ryan Knight.*Oak Park- Entrance to the Oak Park parking lot at 7:30 led my Mrs. Churchman.*San Roque Gardens-Cafe Stella parking lot at 7:40.


SCHOOL SITE COUNCIL ~ Our first SSC meeting will take place on Tuesday, October 8th, at 3:15 in the library. Please vote for our newest members of the SSC in the Thursday Folder today, and return the ballot by Friday. All parents are invited to attend these meetings if interested in hearing about our school funding, but only elected members may vote.


PARENT SCHOOL PARTNERSHIP ~PSP (Parents School Partnership) is a 9-week program designed to motivate and increase parent participation. Giving parents the tools they need to feel confident when asking questions about their student’s progress, school, district, and community. Encouraging parents to take on effective roles as leaders in and out of their student’s school. PSP will be every Wednesday beginning October 2nd and ending December 4th from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in room 37. Light breakfast and free childcare will be provided.

JUST COMMUNITIES FAMILY EQUITY WORKSHOP~ In partnership with Santa Barbara Unified, Just Communities is providing a series of 3-hour workshops to help our district's families understand key educational equity concepts essential to SB Unified’s efforts to support the success of all students.  Each workshop will help participants understand these concepts and develop the knowledge and skills they can use at home. Workshop dates and times are as followed: *October 2nd -Restorative Approaches *November 13th-Ethnic Studies and Culturally Relevant Curriculum * February 12th-Implicit Bias *March 11th-Relevance, Rigor & Relationships: The 3rs of Equitable & Effective Education.

SCHOOL PRIDE DAY: INSIDE OUT DAY~ Students may dress up with their clothes inside out tomorrow, Friday, September 27th, for our school’s first school pride day, “Dress Inside Out Day”.  Students must follow District Dress Code policies when participating. Adams will be having school pride days each month so encourage your child to get their school spirit on!


DISASTER PREPAREDNESS~In efforts to prepare our campus, staff, and students for safety in the event of a natural disaster or unforeseen circumstance on campus, or in the surrounding neighborhood, we are asking for a few donations. Each classroom needs one large plastic bin/container at a minimum size of 4 gallon/16 quarts. Each class also needs one flat of water bottles 24-36, depending on class size. If you can donate the water or plastic bin please let the teacher know so they can get the word out after the donation has been made. We would also like each student to bring in three of their own individually wrapped granola/power type bars. These protein bars cost about $1.50 each at any grocery store and can be brought to school at your earliest convenience. These items will be stored in the classroom and returned to students at the end of the school year when not used. Thank you! 


SAVE THE DATE: NO SCHOOL~ Monday, October 21st will be used for Teacher Professional Learning Day for all Santa Barbara teachers. That Monday will be a non-student day.  Plan ahead!
