Tomorrow kicks off our Wednesday Winter Break countdown! Wear your โœจBRIGHTโœจ clothes and donโ€™t forget your โœจBRIGHTโœจ smiles too!

Whoโ€™s excited for our first spirit day of the winter season!?

Bright as lights day is tomorrow and we canโ€™t wait to see what our little Rangers come up with!


We are hoping you had a fantastic Thanksgiving surrounded by your loved ones and reflecting on the many things you have to be grateful for! ๐Ÿฆƒ We could not be more THANKFUL for the many students, families, and staff that make Ada Elementary what it is!

And a HUGE congratulations to our FHC varsity football team, the 2023 Division 3 STATE CHAMPS! Itโ€™s a great day to be a Ranger and we could not be more proud of our team! ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿ†

See you tomorrow, Ada Rangers!! ๐Ÿ’š

Congrats to our Forest Hills Rangers for taking home the division 3 state championship!!


๐ŸŽจ Friendly reminderโ€ฆ

Order forms are due back tomorrow Monday, November 13th! Have you sat down and filled out the form with your child?

A couple cool ideas for your little Ranger to display their art would be the key chain for their backpack or the canvas tote as their new library bag on the weekends to your favorite KDL!

These are keepsakes that our Ada family members love and cherish and the ceramic mugs or even the simple jar opener make fun gifting this holiday season! ๐ŸŽ


Not just today, but every single day...

Because you were willing to fight, we get to be free.
Because you saw and experienced the worst, we get to live our best lives.
You don't just talk about sacrifice; your life has modeled it.
You were willing to surrender an easy life so that everyone else can have a full one.
You and your family gave us a gift we can never reciprocate.
Though we can never repay you, we can live reflecting your courage.

Government Day at Ada Elementary lives on. The fourth graders participated in a real-life simulation of our Michigan Congress. Twenty-one students gave passionate speeches to earn the votes of their constituents. The Senate and the House cast their ballots and elected a Governor and Lt. Governor. The day continued with committee work to identify the pros and cons of a bill that would be brought to Congress to be passed into law.

It was an incredible day that would not have happened without the support of our dedicated volunteers who assisted in the setup, facilitating committee work, and cleanup. Fourth grade wants to give a special shout-out to Ada Elementary PTO, Mr. Dexter, who came to document this special event.


AHOY Rangerrrr families! ๐Ÿดโ€โ˜ ๏ธ We sure arrrrre lucky to work at Ada! Thank you for sharing your Rangerrrrs with us! Have a safe and fun Halloween and try to stay warrrrrm! ๐ŸŽƒ

Ada Elementary is in their RANGER ERA! ๐Ÿ’š

To expand upon our friendship bracelet inspired PRIDE bulletin board, we have a fun spirit wear fundraiser! Just like all Ada PTO sponsored fundraisers, funds raised go directly back into our schoolโ€™s classrooms.

$15 for kids & $20 for adults

Link to purchase:

Ordering will close November 17th and delivery is targeted for December 8th before the holiday break right to your studentโ€™s classroom. An invoice will be sent after completion of the google form for payment.

Let us know if you have any questions!


Voters in the FHPS District will consider two items on the November 7, 2023, election ballot: a bond proposal and an operating millage proposal. If the bond proposal is approved, there is expected to be NO TAX RATE INCREASE from the current rate for FHPS property owners, and it would provide $340 million to fund capital improvements throughout the district. Watch and learn more!


Saturday is GAME DAY for Michigan and Michigan State. We know we have LOTS of little Wolverine and Sparty Rangers, so we've decided to make tomorrow RIVALRY DAY! Please send your kiddos to school representing your favorite team! ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿค๐Ÿ’š

We have a shake up in 2nd & 3rd place in the Ranger Rock Out family donations!! Anderson is holding onto 1st, Bocian leap frogged Skinner and Wheeler is outta there, folks!

๐Ÿฅ‡- Anderson
๐Ÿฅˆ- Bocian
๐Ÿฅ‰ - Skinner's (Winners ๐Ÿ˜‰)

Remember - the classroom with the most funds raised receives a read-in with Mrs. Hoeksema complete with pizza and a pajama day and according to a sample size of one first grader polled tonight "that's a pretty BIG DEAL" ๐Ÿคฉ

We have a sneaky suspicion the entire school feels that way...
