Chromebook Update

All Chromebooks have been distributed across the three grades.  The students were very excited to receive their school issued device and carrying bag.

  • 6th Grade: Chromebooks will stay at the school for the near future until students have been trained on the various functions of the device and on appropriate care and use.

  • 7th and 8th Grade:  Chromebooks went home with students at the end of last week.  Please remind your student to charge their device before coming to school the next day.

Linden Street Loop- Student Pick-up for 7th and 8th Graders

We strongly encourage 7th and 8th grade parents to pull down Linden Street and drop off in the Linden Street Loop to provide those students quicker access to their homerooms while alleviating traffic on Woodland Street.  

When using the Linden Street Loop, parents should drop off students in the loop and otherwise should not park, stop or drop-off on Linden Street itself in order to ensure that students are dropped off safely and buses can proceed from the bus exit without interference.

Morning Announcements

All morning announcements are posted daily on the school website.  Parents are encouraged to view them at their leisure.

PTSA Openings - Committee Chair: Magazine Drive

  • MS – PTSA has only one fundraiser per year – Magazine Drive!

  • Need a successor to shadow.  Contact Neela Patel with questions

The Magazine Drive is coming soon.  

MS PTSA runs the one and only RAMS fundraiser of the year – The Magazine Drive.  The sales campaign will run from Monday, October 19th to Monday, November 9th.

Please keep in mind, while only current middle school students will be “selling” magazines during those three weeks, the drive is ongoing throughout the entire year online and is open to everyone in Holliston.  Even if you no longer have a child in the Middle School, you can renew or order magazines.  Yes, renewals count just as much as new subscriptions!!  Renew during the drive and your subscription will automatically renew at its regular renewal date.  All profits from the drive (40% of gross sales-WOW!) go directly to our school.  

It’s so easy!  All orders & renewals will be placed online.  Go to and enter school #2590990 to order. Also visit the site to set-up your child’s account.  Please be sure to enter your student’s homeroom teacher during set-up so that your child’s sales can qualify for prizes.  Once set up, you will be ready to easily place orders in October and send out emails to friends and family in advance to let them know how they can support your child and the Adams Middle School PTSA. Questions? Please contact Jill Sykes or Laura Lockwood
