Dear Families,

As things begin to wind down this year, I want to thank you for your support throughout the school closure and the year in general.  Your partnership has played a key role in continuing your child’s education over the past few months.  As a parent myself, I understand how difficult and trying this time has been. I tried my best to find balance between helping educate my own children and meet their emotional needs, continuing my work for Adams and Marshall, as well as maintain life outside of these aspects and at home. We are in the home stretch, we made it.  No one said it would be easy, but we made it and are stronger than before.  Please allow us to continue to support you through the end of the school year and into the summer months as needed.

In addition to the pandemic we are living through, we are now witnessing tragic events unfold across the nation.  Our attention has shifted from Covid, to these horrific events occurring in cities near and far.  This has brought out different emotions in all of us.  For me, it brings out great sadness and anger knowing that we live in a world filled with so much hate, racism, and violence.

As the principal of such an amazing community, I commit to you that discrimination of any kind will not be tolerated in the school setting. We will work towards educating one another about individual differences and celebrate diversity in all forms.

Important new information regarding the end of the year and the fall can be read below.  A final communication for the year will be sent out next week.  As always, reach out to me directly with any questions or concerns you have.

Sincerely,

Erin Eaton

Returning Materials

When you pick up your student’s belongings, we are asking that you return all school materials your child may have at home.  We are looking to collect library books, instruments, textbooks or anything else your child has in their possession.  It is important that we get these items back so we can use them with your child in the fall at his or her new middle school.  Thank you for helping us with this!
