Hello Adams Eagles,
I am so happy to have our students back for the 2020-2021 school year. Even though we are having a unique year, it is going to be a great one! Our theme this year is “We are Courageous”! This couldn’t be a truer statement. Our staff, students, and community members are truly demonstrating that we can endure hard times, we are courageous!
As educators, parents, guardians, and community members we have the great role of educating and helping our students prepare for the future. This far exceeds reading, writing, and arithmetic. Today’s students are coming from different backgrounds as well as different ability levels. We MUST look at each student and make an individual growth plan; not only looking at the overall proficiency but looking at the overall growth of each individual student.
Throughout the school year, we will work on the non-cognitive skills such as teamwork, respect, honesty, responsibility, understanding, kindness, hard work, and love for self and others. As we build leaders, we must keep in mind that it is time to focus on our students’ emerging needs, not just our content, standards, and tests. When these non-cognitive skills are met, the learning, growth, and leadership will follow in the proper order.
I look forward to this school year, to work with great parents and our wonderful school staff, but most importantly, I look forward to working with the amazing students of Adams Elementary. I’m blessed beyond measure because I LOVE what I do. My door is always open and here at Adams we welcome all parents to help and volunteer in any capacity!
