Welcome to the Adams Elementary School Website! I am Mrs. Ruch, the principal of Adams and Fairview Elementary Schools. Ms. Battani is the assistant principal at both Fairview and Adams. Adams Elementary is a Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) school.  PBIS is a proactive process that focuses on teaching positive behavior. Students may come home and talk about Hallway Basics, Lunchroom Basics, Bathroom Basics and Playground Basics.  Our theme this year for PBIS is "IT'S A TIGER THING".  For more information on PBIS please visit their website at pbis.org.

Students are encouraged to be bucket fillers by following the "Basics" and by being kind, generous, considerate, and helpful. Each week students are recognized for being bucket fillers to their classmates, other students and adults at Adams. Thank you, parents, for your help in preparing your children for the beginning of a new school year.

Remember, Together, We're Better Than Ever! If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at 712-792-8040 or through my email sruch@carrolltigers.org Ms. Battani's email is  dbattani@carrolltigers.org or visit her website at http://battani.weebly.com/
