On Thursday morning, October 1, Adams Elementary hosted the first of what we hope is many Friends of Adams Open Houses. This was a chance for people wanting to learn more about FOA to see the beautiful school first hand, meet the principal, Mr. Coleman, Academic Instructional Coach, Lindsay Schuessler and other staff members. Guests were given tours of the school by student ambassadors, classrooms were visited to see the school in action and a special concert was given by the Adams Guitar Ensemble led by Adams music teacher, Larissa Young and the St. Louis Classical Guitar Society’s Jeff Seith.
Mr. Coleman then gave an overview of what’s going on at Adams, their challenges and vision and how Friends of Adams might be a part of the work ahead. We hope over the next months and years, many will see and appreciate the potential of Adams Elementary to make a huge difference in the lives of the children and join us to help them on this noble quest.
