John Adams Dress Code

The parents and staff of John Adams Elementary adopted a school uniform policy for the school year 2007-2008.  The purpose of wearing uniforms is for students to view school as a workplace for teaching and learning.  Our school culture will be improved by the students' enhanced equality, self-respect, sense of pride, ownership in themselves, their school, and community.  Uniforms are worn to further a safe academic environment and to support Goal 3 in the District's Strategic Aims.


Uniforms may be purchased at any store (J. C. Penney's catalog, Dollar General, Wal-Mart, etc.) that carries the required dress list.

Girl's Uniforms

Knit shirt, white or navy blue

Navy, black or khaki shorts, slacks

Skirts or skorts

Adams sweatshirt or t-shirt

Black or Khaki jumpers/dresses

Boy's Uniforms

Knit shirt, white or navy blue

Navy, black or khaki shorts, slacks

Adams sweatshirt or t-shirt

Recess and physical education classes make it very dangerous for children to wear sandals/flip-flops, or slides.  Please let your child wear tennis shoes to school every day.

Thank you,

            Heather Zacarias

Our Creed


John Adams School Creed

I am a John Adams Elementary Student. I have great expectations for myself. 

I accept the challenges and responsibilities to become the best that I can be. 
I will make today the very best day of all.  I will treat others as I would like to  be treated.

With my family and teachers I will determine what I will become for the education I receive today, will  make me
a leader of tomorrow.

I WILL succeed.  I WILL not fail.  I promise  to abide by this creed.

Our Mission

Our mission is to develop young men and women with active and creative minds, a sense of understanding and compassion for others, and the courage to act on their beliefs. We stress the total development of each child: moral, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical.

We want to prepare students for future successes.

Vision Statement

All educators of Adams understand the root cause of student underachievement resulting in the need for increased authentic collaboration and experimental teaching and learning, while valuing the interests and the overall culture of students and families.
