E-blasts from the Principal

October 11, 2017

Hello Adams Families,

The carryover for free and reduced lunch will expire tomorrow, October 12.  Students who have not reapplied will be charged full price starting Friday, October 13.  Also, on Friday, October 13th we will begin offering the alternate meal for those students with negative balances and for those students with expired applications.

If you qualified for free or reduced lunch last year, a notification letter was mailed home, along with information regarding the new online application. When applying online there are no forms to return, it's accurate, confidential and a much faster approval process.  If you still need to apply, you can online at lunchapp.com.  This is the quickest way to get an application submitted to be processed.

If you have any questions, let us know.

Hello Adams Families,

Our first few weeks of school went pretty smoothly!  Our students are learning about their new classmates, getting into their daily routines and are already goal setting for the year!

Here are a few notes for you…


☐ Parent Connect (grades & attendance)  – bring id to the office
☐ Class Dojo (behavior and communication) –  get info from teacher
☐ Friend request Adams Eagles on Facebook


Do you have the Class Dojo Parent Sign Up sheet but you don't know how to begin?  If so, you can watch this video that Mrs. Wade made to help you get signed up: https://youtu.be/FN9tAOSYlX4  

Or...are you wondering, "what is Class Dojo?"  Class Dojo is used to communicate whole class messages, individual messaging, and daily behavior.  Contact your child's teacher to get the Parent Sign Up sheet.


☐ Oakwood Clinic Consent Form


If you are dropping your child off in the morning or picking them up after school, please do not stay parked in the Palmer loop on the north side of the school.  If you’d like to wait with your child in the morning, please park in the main lot.  The loop is used for quick drop offs only.  When dropping off and picking up, only use the curbside lane.  The left lane is for through traffic only.  We appreciate your cooperation with this.  


If you still need to update your information, log onto this link: https://update.wwcsd.net  enter your student's id number as your designated username and your student's birth date (mm/dd/yyyy) as the password.  (When entering the birth date, you actually need to type in the backslash.)  


Contact Alan Vayda at vaydaa@computer.org or 734-981-1785 or contact Mike Irvine at 734-718-6148 if your son is interested in joining.


Return the permission slip asap if you’re interested.  They will be at Adams on Friday, October 13.

Hello Adams Families!

Welcome Back to another school year :-)!  We hope you enjoyed the summer with your children and are ready for the start of another year.  We wanted to make sure you have important dates and information to get the year started.     


We will mail yellow postcards this week that have your child’s new teacher for the school year.  If your registration is updated, expect the postcard.  If your registration is not updated, read the registration information below.


If you have already completed or updated your online registration for 2017-2018, thank you!  

If you still need to complete the registration process, log onto this link: https://update.wwcsd.net  enter your student's id number as your designated username (this can be found on the letter you received from Mr. Albrecht, on any report card, or on Parent Connect), and your student's birth date (mm/dd/yyyy) as the password.  (When entering the birth date, you actually need to type in the backslash.)  If you this is completed by noon on Monday, August 21 you can expect the postcard in the mail with your child’s new teacher’s name.   

If you are unable to access a computer or device to update the registration, you can come to Adams to use a computer on Friday, August 25 from 12:00 - 2:00 or Monday, August 28 from 12:00 - 2:00.


Mailings are being sent out this week with specific information as to the bus routes to and from schools for your children.


Open House is scheduled for Monday, August 28 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. for 5th Grade and for Tuesday, August 29 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. for 6th Grade. (All of Ms. Sudorowki’s (Swan) class will have Open House on Monday.)  You will be able to meet your child’s teachers and get more familiar and comfortable with Adams Upper Elementary.


  • Wednesday, August 30th - First Day of School from 8:00 - 11:10 (½ day only)
  • Thursday, August 31st - First Full Day of School from 8:00 - 2:50
  • Friday, September 1st - Monday, September 4th - NO SCHOOL


Students aren't required to bring any supplies - we will provide everything they need. If you want to get anything special for your student (pencil pouch, special things they like to write with, etc.) that's great. Otherwise, any "suggested" list that comes home from the teacher is just suggestions to donate to the class (hand sanitizer, tissue, etc.). Also, if anyone needs a backpack and doesn't have one, our Family Resource Center has plenty (the FRC is inside Adams).  There is also a Backpack Giveaway at Franklin on Saturday, September 2nd from 12 - 3 p.m.


September 6 - order forms will go home on the first day of school.
