Middle School

Behavior Specialist
Welcome Students, Parents, and Guardians!

It's hard to believe we are now approaching our final quarter for 2016-17.  I hope that we can continue to  work together to offer inspiration, encouragement and support for students this school year, and as a result see academic and social growth in your child.

At John Adams, we embrace Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) and we teach and reinforce expected Behavior by teaching and expecting  students to be Respectful, Responsible and Safe, which are truly  lifelong skills.  These social behaviors will help students be successful far beyond their  beyond their middle school years.
