ROAR CARD~ Congratulations to the following Roar Card Winners,Benicio Fuste, Sutera Raring, Andrew Trujillo, Anessia Jimenez, Nathaniel Montalvo, Matthew Trujillo, Melany Ruiz, Jayden Mitchum, Ian Vega, Destiny Ocampo! Thank you for making Responsible, Organized, Academic Respectful choices!

FRESCH COFFEE AND  FRIDAY FLAG CEREMONY~Join us Friday for a Friday Flag Ceremony and Fresch Coffee with our Principal on the playground from 8:30 till 9:00 a.m. ! We will make announcements and celebrate staff and students each week. Parents are encouraged to stay for the fun. TK and Kinder students will be attending the Friday Flag each week as well. We will continue to start each day with the Pledge of Allegiance and follow that up with the running club each day, but we will save announcements for Fridays. 

 PARKING LOT REMINDERS~We strongly encourage parents to park in the Earl Warren Showgrounds parking lot and walk their child on campus each day. However, in recent videos, provided by Earl Warren staff, it is alarming how unsafe many parents and students are behaving in the parking lot. Understanding that mornings are a busy time, and many families use this parking lot to access Adams School, please be very aware of your surroundings and other cars. Do NOT pull in the driveway and let students out of the car. You MUST pull all the way into the lot and PARK your vehicle and then walk your student through the lot and safely up Las Positas onto campus. Earl Warren is NOT to be used for drop-off. You must pull into the Adams lot and circle around if you choose to just drop off your student in the mornings. We risk losing our partnership with Earl Warren if we are not safe and respectful of these rules. There is no adult supervision and students are running through cars and unaware of parents driving erratically, weaving to make their way through the chaos. If there is a parent who would like to volunteer in the mornings to help organize families as they walk through the lot, and out the exit, we would gladly welcome that. Much like a crossing guard  it would help with safely getting students across the driveway. On mornings when we have school events, such as Fresch Cofffee tomorrow, the staff at the Showgrounds plan to close off gate A and force cars to drive up to Calle Real and pull into the lot through gate B to help manage traffic flow. It may be a safer idea just to get in the habit of doing this each day. But again we urge you to be patient, slow, courteous, and park each morning if using their lot.

FOLLOW US ON INSTAGRAM!~ Our school’s instagram page can be found @ adamselementaryschool I will be posting pictures throughout the week highlighting the fabulous teaching, learning, and playing taking place on campus.

LABOR DAY ~ In observance of Labor Day we will not have school on Monday, September 3rd.

SCHOOL ATTENDANCE IS MANDATORY AND JOYCE E. DUDLEY DISTRICT ATTORNEY~This is a reminder that school attendance is mandatory.  A student is considered truant after 3 unexcused absences.  I thank you in advance for ensuring that your child is at school everyday on time and ready to learn.  In fact District Attorney Joyce E. Dudley has mailed all students in the state of California a letter speaking of the importance of coming to school each and every day. Set a goal for your family this year to be at school on time and every day possible when healthy!

LIBRARY SUMMER READING CERTIFICATES~If you participated in this summer reading please- be sure to return the printed certificate, with your student’s first and last name, to the front office BEFORE school starts tomorrow, Friday, August 31. Students will participate in a walking field trip to the park for lunch and Chaucers Bookstore with Mrs. Fresch and Dr. Price on Friday, September 14.

RECORDATORIOS DEL ESTACIONAMIENTO~Enfatizamos a los padres a que se estacionen en el estacionamiento de Earl Warren Show Grounds y caminen con sus estudiantes a la escuela todos los días. Por favor usen toda seguridad en utilizar el estacionamiento de Earl Warren.  Recientemente Earl Warren me demostraron un video en su estacionamiento del tráfico de carros y nuestras familias y fue  un poco alarmante.  Padres deben estacionar y caminar con sus estudiantes a la escuela.  Padres no pueden solo dejar sus estudiante en el estacionamiento y no pueden caminar solos a la escuela.  Por favor de entrar el estacionamiento de Earl Warren a una velocidad de aspasia y no de prisa.  Es muy importante de seguir las reglas de Earl Warren por que no quisiéramos perder el permiso de utilizar el estacionamiento.
