  • Winter Celebrations Around the World at Adams Elementary

    Posted by Mike Webster on 11/5/2019

    December 13: The Adams Elementary School winter program celebrates traditions from around the globe that take place in winter. Songs from Africa, Europe, Isreal, Mexico, and the United States will be performed in this K-2 program. Two elves, mic'd up and in costume, will inform the audience as they segue, with humor, between numbers. In addition to singing, students will be playing a variety of instruments including recorders, handbells, xylophones, and boom whackers. There will even be a live pinata--with a special twist! Unique choreography will employ everything from temper tantrums to Fortnight dances. Everyone is invited to join us for either of the two shows Friday, December 13th, at 9:30 am or 2:00 pm.

  • Calm...

    Posted by Hayley Mesplie, Ed.S, NCSP on 10/15/2019

    On Friday the Special Education Team at Robertson presented a three-part presentation on serving all students with trauma and how that impacts their learning. We covered ACES, gen. ed strategies in the classroom for trauma and calming kits and why they are so important to have in the classroom. They each received a calming kit complete with items and directions and breathing technique which was graciously approved for by the principal with school funds and had the principal support! We then did a "Make & Take" where we made calming bottles. It was well-received by all!

  • Custodian's Week

    Posted by YSD Stories Account on 10/5/2018

    Custodian’s Week

    Adams has one of the best custodians ever as he enjoys helping students even if its math.  Enrique is our day custodian and I captured this moment as it shows more than what people think they do for us.  He is always willing to help students out in any way he can and we are beyond lucky to have him at our building.  He impacts our students, staff and parents daily.

  • What is the High School and Beyond Plan?

    The High School and Beyond Plan process is a graduation requirement that supports students in exploring their interests, planning high school coursework that is aligned to those interests, keeping track of major assessment scores, and logging work and other relevant experience.
