Community Building Events

APT Community Building and Enrichment Events

Adams Parents and Teachers (APT) host a variety of different community building events and activities each year which seek to provide Adams students, staff and families the chance to gather for fun, entertainment, and socializing. The current APT community builders are:

Adams Staff Appreciation  

Throughout the school year, APT coordinates different events to show appreciation to the Adams Staff. APT coordinates luncheons, door decorating and special raffles for staff.

Adams Wear 

Each year the Adams community has the opportunity to purchase clothing and merchandise with the Adams logo. This is a great way to show school spirit and showcase the school mascot, Spike the Alligator.

Fall Harvest Festival

This event is held on a weeknight during the fall and provides lots of fun for families and the community. There are lots of games, prizes and food. This a new tradition at Adams School.

Family Literacy Night

Held on a weeknight in October and March, this event is a chance to read and share literacy activities with your Adams friends. All Adams family members are welcome! In March, literacy night is during the Read Across America week.

Field Day

This event is held during the school day the last week of school. We put together many games on the playground involving jumping, running, throwing and other fun outside activities. APT provides popsicles for all students!

Site Beautification

Throughout the year, APT seeks to the landscape of the school looking healthy and beautiful. During the spring work party, extra volunteers are needed to help spruce up the landscape and extra help is also needed during the summer to keep the plants and flowers watered.

Sock Hop

A long-standing Adams tradition, the sock hop is a fun night full of music, dancing and having fun with friends. Join us on a Friday night in January in the Adams gym to shake, rattle and roll!

Spring Fling Carnival

The carnival is another Adams favorite of students at Adams School. Come to the school on a Friday evening in April and be prepared for lots of carnival games, food, a cake walk, bouncy houses, dunk tank and prizes!

Walk and Bike to School  

Rain or shine, every month Adams School has a Walk and Bike to school day. Buses park a block away so that bus riders can walk to school too! There are raffles for students, healthy morning snacks and a traveling trophy presented to the classroom with the highest participation.

Welcome Back Family Event

Held on a weeknight the second week of school on the Adams playground this is an opportunity for all families to come together and socialize on the playground. APT leaders are available to answer questions, sell scrip, sign up members, sell t-shirts, and Adams Staff members are in attendance to kick off the school year!
