We are excited to announce that Adams Middle School will be bringing back the Book Fair this year! Our Book Fair will run from Tuesday, September 26-Thursday, September 28 in our school library.The Book Fair will feature a huge selection of engaging and affordable books for every age. Your child is certain to find a book that they will love!  All Students will have the opportunity to visit the Book Fair during their English classes throughout the week. In addition we will have a Parents Night, Thursday September 28 from 6:30-7:30 in our library where Parents will have an opportunity to attend the Book Fair.

If you are unable to attend the Book Fair and would like to shop online, please do so starting September 20-October 3 using the link below


Parent Volunteer Opportunities- Adams Middle School School Council

Volunteers needed for this year’s school council.

The School Council is a small representative group of parents, teachers, community members and administrators which meets to review and discuss the school improvement goals and efforts for the school and help inform efforts and goals for the following year.  It typically meets every other month beginning in October from 4-5:30.

If you are interested in serving on the RAMS School Council, please email Principal David Jordan at

Laps at Lunch

As a part of our continuous efforts to address the social and emotional needs of our students, the middle school will continue to provide alternative spaces this year for students to go during lunch.  This will include quiet reading, puzzles, and games in the library, and “Laps at Lunch” where students will be given a chance to walk around a designated space.

We are looking for parent volunteers that can help us monitor students during this time. Please consider volunteering for one or more lunch periods as often as you wish.  It is a great opportunity for parents to engage with students here at our Middle School.

Please sign up using the link below:
