Principal's Message May 10th

Principal's Message May 10th

Dear Adena Community,

As we approach the end of the school year, we wanted to take a moment to update you on some important matters and celebrate a remarkable achievement within our school community.

Firstly, we are proud to announce that we have completed our spring MAP assessments! These assessments provide valuable insights into your child's academic progress and help us tailor our teaching methods to best support their individual needs.  Specifically, spring MAP shows the growth that your child has achieved from the fall until now – which we unapologetically celebrate! We want to extend our gratitude to both students and parents for their dedication and cooperation throughout this testing period.

Additionally, we are overjoyed to share the exciting news that Mrs. Diane Meyer, one of our esteemed educators, was recently honored with the Lakota Educator of Excellence Award for 2024. This prestigious recognition is a testament to Mrs. Meyer's unwavering commitment to the success and well-being of our students. Her passion for teaching and dedication to excellence inspire us all, and we are incredibly fortunate to have her as part of our Adena family.  Mrs. Meyer's surprise award ceremony took place on Thursday, May 9th, and it was a heartwarming event filled with joy and celebration. Her family, friends, members of our Board of Education, and Dr. Lolli, our superintendent, were all present to congratulate her on this well-deserved honor.

Looking ahead, we want to remind you that next Friday is Field Day! We are eagerly anticipating a day filled with fun activities and team spirit as we come together to celebrate the end of another successful school year. Our students have been working hard, and we are committed to finishing the year strong with positivity, enthusiasm, and determination.

Finally, I want to personally wish all our mothers, grandmothers, and guardians a Happy Mother’s Day!  We appreciate all you do for our All-Star students!

Enjoy the weekend,

Kevin Thomas

Principal, Adena Elementary
