A Note of Gratitude

During the month of November, we are asking the Adams community to reflect on what they are grateful for at Adams.  We would love to hear from our valued families and greater educational community about what and who you are grateful for at Adams Middle School.

Please take a brief moment to express your gratitude to our amazing staff.  Your words of appreciation make a great impact on our school culture and climate.  We will compile all responses and share them with the staff before they leave for Thanksgiving break. Thank you!

Get ready! The Scholastic Book Fair is coming our way (YAY!). Choosing their own books empowers kids and inspires them to become bolder, prouder, and stronger readers. AND… as always, every book they buy earns rewards for our school library .   

Our school’s Book Fair will take place from November 28 through December 2, 2022 at Adams’ School Library. We will be accepting Cash, and Credit/Debit Cards, and eWallets can be created. 

EWallets are accounts you create for your student without having to send cash or card with your child. (All  money not used from an eWallet can be used to make online purchases.)

Students will have the opportunity to win a before Thanksgiving shopping spree and $5 gift cards to be used solely at our onsite fair. 

If you can’t make it to the Fair, then shop at our school’s Online Book Fair. All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Your online orders will also benefit our school library. Online shopping does not open until November 21 and runs until December 4.

Visit our Book Fair homepage to learn more and get started with online shopping:

The countdown to more Bookjoy is on! Catch you at the Fair!

Happy reading!
