Adams Middle School is identified as a Title I Targeted Assistance school. The Title I program is a federal program that provides funding to schools to improve the academic achievement of disadvantaged and/or under performing students. The School Site Council is a governing body that assists the principal in evaluating and monitoring the academic program and school goals in order to determine how these monies can best be utilized to support Title I students. For additional information regarding the Title I program, please visit the U.S Department of Education HERE, or contact Adams' Title I Coordinator, Gina Zbikowski, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 310-798-8636 x3917.
Title I Parent Event Nights
During the 2018-19 school year, Adams hosted two separate Title I Parent Event Nights, one in February and the second in May. During both of the Event Nights, parents had the opportunity to choose from a variety of "breakout" sessions where they could hear presentations on the topics which were the most meaningful to them. Topics included "Supporting Your Student In Math", "Supporting Your Student In English/Language Arts", "The Middle School Brain and Increasing Positive Behavior At Home", "Organizational Systems For A Successful Student", "Growth Mindset", "Preventing The Summer Slide", and "Discipline & Motivation", just to name a few. In addition to getting more information on these topics, parents and families also were able to leave with a plethora of free helpful items, from Math & ELA study guides, parenting and study skills books, binders fully loaded with paper, dividers, and school supplies, and goal-setting guides.
We are looking to host even more of these Event nights this coming year! It would be wonderful if we could get your input and feedback on what you would like covered during the 2019-2020 school year. Please take just a few minutes to complete a short survey HERE to provide your thoughts and insights.
Did you know the library will soon be open daily after school for Tutoring/Homework Club?
Students may visit the library after school for an hour to work on homework, finish projects, print documents, receive Chromebook support, or just take advantage of a quiet place to read and study. Additionally, if you would feel more comfortable getting academic support from another student rather than a teacher, peer tutoring will be available in most subject areas! Remember that these tutors are not there just to give you the "answer", but have been specially trained to help their fellow Eagles deepen their understanding of the material covered in class.
*Please note that there will be no after-school tutoring in the library and the library will be closed after school on minimum days when students are dismissed at 12:29 PM or earlier.
After School Tutoring/Homework Club for the 2019-2020 school year will began in late October/early November and is aimed at supporting our Title I students and ensuring they meet academic success. Please check your email for additional details on the program as well as how to sign up!
