Grade 7 Required Health Documentation 2019-2020

All students entering grade 7 in the fall of 2019 are required to provide documentation of having had the Tdap vaccine prior to entrance into Grade 7. Your child has most likely already received this vaccination.  Please check your child's latest physical examination and if your child has had the Vaccination, please provide the paperwork to the school nurse as soon as possible.  If your child has not yet received the Tdap vaccine, please make an appointment for your child to get the vaccine prior to entrance into Grade 7 and be sure to provide the paperwork to the school nurse as soon as your child receives the Tdap vaccine.  

Students will not be able to start school without the required paperwork on file at the nurse's office. Please fax to 508-429-0690 or email to

MCAS Schedule Spring 2019

It is that time of year! Please use the following link to view the Spring 2019 MCAS Schedule for Robert Adams Middle School

Spring Musical- The Addams Family (March 29-31)

THE ADDAMS FAMILY is a darkly delightful musical that will run from March 29th-31st at Robert Adams Middle School. It is full of lovable characters from your youth (for some of us that is!) based on the classic black-and-white TV show from the mid-‘60s. (Youtube it!)  The musical, however, features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. Gomez and Morticia Addams are the loving albeit slightly undead parents of teenage daughter Wednesday and tween son Pugsley. They live in a mansion with an extended family of Uncle Fester, Grandma, Cousin It and their hulking butler, Lurch. The story begins when Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable traditional family – a man her parents have never met until both families get together for a family dinner and "the game".  From there the chaos pursues. Even in the opening number of “The Addams Family”, Gomez points out, “When you’re an Addams… you’ve to like to stir the pot.”

“The Addams Family” will open on Friday, March 29th at 7:00 PM, with two more shows on Saturday the 30th at 2:00 PM and 7:00 PM, and our closing show on Sunday, March 31 at 2:00 PM. Tickets are &10 for students/seniors and $15 for adults and are available in advance at Coffee Haven and Kamala Boutique, or at the box office in the lobby at Robert “Addams” Middle School before each show. But please be aware, many performances sell out in advance, so it’s better to buy your tickets early!
