2016 Magazine Drive

Dear Students/Parents,

Adams’ MS-PTO will kickoff our school’s one and only major fundraiser on Monday, October 17th. The money earned from this fundraiser funds several key school initiatives and events like 6th grade Nature’s Classroom, 7th grade Middle of the Middle, 8th grade Community Service day, teacher appreciation week and much more!

One of the most important parts of the fundraiser is the “Postcard Turn-in Day” that happens on the second day of the drive.  However, due to scheduled field trips on Tuesday, October 18th and Wednesday, October 19th.  The “Postcard Turn-in Day” will be on Thursday, October 20th.  Sales from these postcards account for almost 25% of our overall profits.

Please click on the parent letter for details on this year’s Magazine Drive.

Magazine Drive Parent Letter

MetroWest Adolescent Health Risk Survey

Attention Parents: Students in grades 6-8 will be asked to participate in the MetroWest Adolescent Health Risk Survey in November. Students at the Robert Adams Middle School have been participating in this survey since 2006. This survey is administered in the surrounding towns with the purpose of collecting data regarding students attitudes and behaviors with regarding a variety of health issues.  A letter will be going out with more information later this month. This survey is optional, and a copy of the survey for the parents to view will be in the Main Office prior to the administration. If you have questions regarding the implementation and/or information on the survey, feel free to contact Jessica Beattie at ext 1414.

Johns Hopkins Informational Night

There will be an informational night on Tuesday, October 25th from 6:30-7:00 PM in the RAMS auditorium for those interested in having their student participate in the Johns Hopkins SAT preparation program.  

There was some confusion on our part in the letter that was sent out to parents.  There will be no informational packet the night of the event.  All of the information from the evening will be posted online immediately after the October 25th presentation. Please contact Mrs. Gavan at if you have any questions.
