We also need families to sell from 5:15-6:30, 6:30-7:30 and 7:30-8:30. If you are able to work one of the shifts, please reply to this e-mail and let me know!

Graduation, June 7:
The 5th Graders will graduate on Thursday, June 7 at 2:30. There will be refreshments following graduation. Due to space limitations this year with construction, we ask that you limit the number of family/friends you invite to the ceremony. We will be in the new cafeteria and space is very limited. Please, plan on no more than 2 people per 5th grader. Thank you for your understanding.
End-of-Year 5th Grade Family Potluck Picnic
On the last day of school, we invite all 5th grade families to join us for a potluck picnic! Celebrate your final day at Adams together! Please bring a dish to share and a blanket and/or chairs to join us outside for lunch! Please bring a dish to share according to the first letter of your last name:

Cancelled: Fort Snelling Field Trip
Unfortunately, we have had to cancel our upcoming trip to Fort Snelling. Due to many district-wide sports being rescheduled due to late snow, we do not have busing available for the trip. If you have time this Memorial Day weekend or later this summer, consider taking your child to visit Fort Snelling. It is a great way to see the European perspective on colonization in Minnesota. We started the year on the Bdote trip around Fort Snelling to see the Native perspective on colonization.
The talent show is scheduled for May 25.
Field Day is scheduled for May 31.
