The Math MCAS and 8th Grade Science and Technology/Engineering MCAS begin next week on May 10th.  Please review the Spring 2016 MCAS Schedule for all of the sessions in Math and Science and Technology/Engineering at Adams Middle School. Please use this as a helpful reference.

8th Grade Community Service Day

The 8th Grade Community Service Day is scheduled for Thursday, May 26th (rain date Wednesday, June 1th).  We seeking volunteers to assist our homeroom teachers to help coordinate the efforts of the kids that day. Assistance will be needed from 9:00am to 1:00pm, and your role would be to help coordinate materials needed for the day, monitor the students’ efforts at their job site, and to help the kids serve their "senior" partners during our Cook-Out Luncheon held back at RAMS in the afternoon.  If you would consider volunteering on Community Service Day, or know of another parent who might be available, we would greatly appreciate it!  Please contact your child’s homeroom teacher.
