Autism Awareness Month
Upcoming PSAT/M-STEP Testing
On April 12, 2023, our 8th grade students will be taking the PSAT test. Our 6th and 7th grade students will not attend school on this day. We will share more information regarding this next week.
All students will take the M-STEP test on April 18 and April 19, 2023. Here is a brief overview of what the M-STEP is, what it means as well as what it offers from the Department of Education.
In addition, here is a document that was created for parents, discussing your role in helping your student prepare for testing.
5th to 6th Grade Transition Night
Do you have a 5th grade student entering middle school in the fall or know someone who does? Save the date for an evening to tour Adams Middle School and meet our amazing staff.
Jefferson Barns Tech Club
Jefferson Barns will be running another Tech Club this year for students from Adams. They have arranged for Wayne-Westland transportation to have participants board the bus that goes near Jefferson Barns (Route 7 from Adams) after school on each day of the program.
Students will engage in two hours of technology education and then be transported home via the Nankin Transit bus around 5:00 p.m.
More information can be found below. Parents will receive an email reminder the day before each session.
Participants who attend five times will be awarded a $25.00 gift card.
If your child would like to participate, please let us know as soon as possible and we will send a permission slip home. There are still a few spots available.
Upcoming Spring Fling
We are excited to host another evening of fun at our upcoming dance/activity night. Tickets went on sale this week at lunchtime and will be available through March 14, 2023. Tickets cost $5.00 if they are purchased ahead of time, and will be $6.00 at the door. This helps us encourage early sales so we can plan our purchases accordingly.
The price of the ticket covers the cost of the DJ for the evening, a slice of pizza and Faygo or water for each student. There will be additional items for sale for $1.00 throughout the night. We encourage students to dress casual and in green or spring colors. In addition to our DJ and dancing, there will be open gym for basketball.
Please note, any child that has been suspended (after expectations were reviewed), in school or out of school is ineligible to attend. This has been communicated since returning from winter break in January and a privilege we have advertised as part of our PBIS initiative.
If you would like to chaperone or sell/serve concessions, please complete the Google Form here. We love sharing these experiences with our families. Please note that an approved background check is required for all chaperones.
Track and Field
Boys track and field will begin on Monday, April 10, 2023. This is open to all students, grades 6-8. Students will need to be picked up at 4:15 p.m.
If you have questions, please reach out to Mr. Venturini or Mr. Winston.
All athletes must have a physical on file before being able to participate.
