RAMS Term 1 Report Cards

Just a friendly reminder that student report cards went live on iParent Friday, December 8. Report cards will no longer be printed so we encourage all families to view their grades through iParent.  Report Cards are an important time to assess areas in which students have had successes or struggles.  Students who are struggling are encouraged to meet with their teachers and guidance counselors to determine how to be successful moving forward.

Homework Free Vacation & Main Office Closed

The Robert Adams Middle School is continuing our practice of “homework-free” vacations. As we approach winter vacation, we wanted to remind the community that no homework will be assigned for any classes in order to provide students an opportunity to rest, relax and reconnect with their families and friends.

Just a friendly reminder that the RAMS Main Office will be closed during the December Break.

We wish you a wonderful and restful vacation!

School Closings/Snow Days

Parents, please be aware that many local news organizations have discontinued text notifications for school closings.  Notifications will continue to be posted on all local news stations and their websites, as well as on the Holliston Public Schools website.  Please utilize one of those sources for information on school closings in Holliston.

Soles4Souls-Shoe Drive

Adams Middle School is running a shoe drive, led by some of our 8th grade Student Leaders. We're collecting gently used and new shoes for all sizes from toddler to adult. With the help of a local nonprofit, the shoes will be delivered to a small town in Mexico where the townspeople and their children often go shoeless due to poverty. Shoes may be left in the boxes located outside the guidance counselors' doors. Please consider donating.

Virtual Parent Coffee Talk- January

Thank you to all of the parents that participated in our first Virtual Coffee Talk in November  We appreciated the great questions that we received. We will be planning an upcoming Coffee Talk to go live on Wednesday, January 10 at 5:00-5:30pm. More information to follow.
