Jimmy the Butterfly is set free!

Students at ACES have watched the life cycle of the monarch butterfly almost in it's entirety.  Caterpillars were brought to school while eating milkweed plants.  They soon spun themselves into chrysalis'.  Everyday, sometimes twice a day, students checked on the progress of the chrysalis.  Finally this week, three of the chrysalis have emerged into butterflies.  Each grade level was on-hand to watch one of the butterflies set free!

5th Graders Attend Farm Safety Day Events

For the past twenty years, Adair County students have learned how to prevent farm and home accidents by participating in a Farm Safety Day. Recently, the 5th grade students at Adair Elementary traveled to Adair County High School for this important event. Students learned about first aid and how to be safe around animals. They learned about the importance of wearing a life preserver when on the water and how to properly use a fire extinguisher.

Adair County Future Farmers of America students provided demonstrations about the safe use of all terrain vehicles and farm equipment and helped coordinate the event. 
This annual activity is sponsored by Progressive Farmer, Adair Co. 4-H, Adair Co. FFA and the Family Resource Center. -- Debbie Cowan 

High Attendance Day is Tomorrow (September 20, 2017) High Attendance

September 20, 2017 has been designated across Kentucky as High Attendance Day.  Research shows that a child's attendance may be the biggest factor influencing his/her academic success.  We hope to see every child at school on time tomorrow and everyday.  Every day counts!
