News and Events
  • Celebrate Freedom Week
    Adams Elementary had a Veterans Day Assembly which honored family members of staff and students.  Each one was recognized and presented in the assembly.  The students also enjoyed a special presentation by In The Gap and learned a lot about patriotism.  Finally we were excited to have a group come and provide a Living Tribute Re-enactment, pictured below.  The students left the assembly with a sense of pride for their country and a greater appreciation for our Veterans.

John Adams Dress Code



The parents and staff of John Adams Elementary adopted a school uniform policy for the school year 2007-2008.  The purpose of wearing uniforms is for students to view school as a workplace for teaching and learning.  Our school culture will be improved by the students' enhanced equality, self-respect, sense of pride, ownership in themselves, their school, and community.  Uniforms are worn to further a safe academic environment and to support Goal 3 in the District's Strategic Aims.

    

Uniforms may be purchased at any store (J. C. Penney's catalog, Dollar General, Wal-Mart, etc.) that carries the required dress list.



Girl's Uniforms

Knit shirt, white or navy blue

Navy, black or khaki shorts, slacks

Skirts or skorts

Adams sweatshirt or t-shirt

Black or Khaki jumpers/dresses



Boy's Uniforms

Knit shirt, white or navy blue

Navy, black or khaki shorts, slacks

Adams sweatshirt or t-shirt



Recess and physical education classes make it very dangerous for children to wear sandals/flip-flops, or slides.  Please let your child wear tennis shoes to school every day.



Thank you,

Dot Violett
