Did I read the newsletter wrong that the whole district has open houses on the same night?

Also, I keep getting text messages from the Alerts 17 of them in the last 10 days. I don't h...ave e-mail set up on my phone, and I'm not sure if I'm supposed to reply a certain thing to the text. See More

These Adams School students in Mr. Meyer's PE class got their first experience today with the HeartZone foot pods that attach to their legs or shoes and measure their activity. They can see immediate feedback on their level of intensity by looking at their square on the projected screen. Students work to get in the yellow or red zones for good heart health!

The first version of the 2017-2018 district calendar had March 22nd (next Thursday) as a half day for students.

That was revised back in October, but we want to remind everyone that there is a FULL DAY OF SCHOOL on Thursday, March 22nd!

We agree!
