Recycling at Adams

Recycling is a priority at Jacob L. Adams Elementary.  We have a team of students committed to being responsible stewards of our environment.  Each day, they collect recycling from different classrooms and areas of the school and make sure it is properly placed in our recycling bin outside.  Two of our students, David and Tymir have really taken the lead with this project.  We commend them for their efforts!

Spring Saturday Enrichment Program at The College of William & Mary

The Center for Gifted Education (CFGE) is accepting registrations for the 2018 Spring Saturday Enrichment Program (SEP). The session will be held on Saturdays starting February 24th and ending on March 24th. The Saturday program will be located at the William & Mary Mason School of Business located at 101 Ukrop Way, Williamsburg, VA 23185.

SEP is an academically challenging program with an emphasis on inquiry-based learning for students enrolled in grades K-9. SEP is not meant to supplant the regular school curriculum; rather, it recognizes the importance of allowing able students to explore additional specialized areas of science, mathematics, humanities, and the arts.

The program’s brochure is accessible through the Center’s website at http://education.wm.edu/centers/cfge/precollegiate/sep/SEP-Brochure-2018-Spring.pdf.

If you have any questions or if there is anything with which we can assist you, please contact us by phone at 757-221-2166 or by email at sep@wm.edu.
