Principal's Message

Welcome families,

My name is Ben Newell.  I am the Principal and would like to welcome you to Adams.  We had an amazing year last year. Here are a few of the highlights:    

  • Amazing Staff attendance
  • 15% reduction in chronic absenteeism
  • 30% reduction in referrals
  • Student increases in DIBELS scores 
  • Strong academic performances at third grade mathematics and ELA (English Language Arts)
  • Solid cohort growth was present at fourth grade 
  • Increase of students performing at levels 3 & 4 in 5th Grade ELA
  • Recognition by the state for improved student performance

Our goal is to give your children the skills they need to be successful in middle school, high school, and beyond.  To accomplish this goal, the work at Adams will fall into two parts:

Academic Skills: Ensuring your child has the reading, writing, and mathematical skills to be successful in school and beyond

Emotional Skills: Providing your child opportunities to learn the social and emotional skills needed for success in a fast paced world

School starts each day at at 8:05 a.m. and students dismiss at 3:05 p.m.

Thank You,

Ben Newell, Principal, Adams Elementary
