Sixth Grade Students Begin Swim Lessons at the YMCA

All of our sixth grade students will be taking swim lessons every Tuesday beginning September 13th from 12-2:00pm through October 18th. We are extremely grateful to be the recipients of a $12,000 YMCA grant to make this possible for our students, as this will prepare them for their CIMI camp experience in November.

Sixth Grade Students Challenge Themselves

Last Friday, Adams Elementary School sixth-grade students, teachers and the principal participated in a full-day of team building with the Nature's Bridge staff at Forest Home in Ojai, California. The students also challenged themselves by participating in a Rock Climbing course and Zipline adventure through the camp.  This day gave us all a wonderful opportunity to really get to know each other and to connect on a deeper level as many students pushed themselves to go beyond their physical and mental limits.  Click here to view a video of the day's adventure.


Afterschool Enrichment Classes

Just a reminder that ENRICHMENT sign-ups are well underway, I'm attaching the packet of information - simply click on the link and register!  (These classes run anywhere from 8-12 weeks). We also have 5 scholarships left - the form is attached - fill it out and drop it off at the office!
