Principal Message-6/25/20

Principal Message

Dear Families –

It has been a gift to be the principal at Adams for the past two years.  As we transition to summer, I have been reflecting on my time at Adams and on what makes it such a special place.  Although the list could go on and on, the sense community here is at the core of it all.  Adams is not simply a school building with classrooms.  It’s a place of friendship, smiles, childhood memories, life lessons, strength, pride, learning, acceptance, and compassion.  Some of my favorite memories are watching the children come through the doors in the morning full of smiles and laughter as they make their way to their classroom with a teacher waiting to greet them.  Leaving is bittersweet for me and I am so deeply grateful to have worked at Adams.  Thank you to each and every one of you for sharing it with me.

Later this week you will receive a message about returning to school in the fall that provides brief overviews of the two different options that are being developed.  In the message is a survey for you to complete.  We are not asking families to make a commitment to an option right now – it’s simply to help us plan more accurately right now for staffing, schedules, etc.  There are many, many details and considerations that are still in the planning phase and that will continue to evolve.  Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions.

Enjoy your summer!

Beth
