Welcome to the 2016-17 school year!


New Year, New Happenings at Adaire! 
As we continue to strive for our personal best we are excited about how 2017 is starting off. 


Our new schoolyard - our community has been preparing this project for 3 years. So glad that it is coming now! Construction begins in Jan. and will be completed by end of school year. This summer it will be open. 


Coding Club - we will be offering an afterschool program 2 days a week with Ms. Claus and an outside provider, Coded by Kids. Ages 10 and up. 

The club will meet Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3:20-4:20pm in Room 218. Starting January 25th.  



We are hoping to begin Gifted testing in 2017 and planning to provide an even stronger enrichment program. 

Our school goal is to continue to have students attend and achieve each day! 





Thank you, 

Anna Jenkins
