Thanks for the reminder, Ada PTO! 💚
Tomorrow kicks off our Wednesday Winter Break countdown! Wear your ✨BRIGHT✨ clothes and don’t forget your ✨BRIGHT✨ smiles too!
Who’s excited for our first spirit day of the winter season!?
Bright as lights day is tomorrow and we can’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! 🦃 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! It’s a great day to be a Ranger and we could not be more proud of our team! 🏈🏆
See you tomorrow, Ada Rangers!! 💚
Congrats to our Forest Hills Rangers for taking home the division 3 state championship!!
🎨 Friendly reminder…
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! 🎁
Not just today, but every single day...
THANK YOU, VETERANS! ❤️🤍💙
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.

💌 396 cards 💌 were dropped off to the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans yesterday made with love from our Rangers! A tradition we love at Ada Elementary!
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! 🏴☠️ 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! 🎃

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!
🥉 - Skinner's (Winners 😉)
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" 🤩
We have a sneaky suspicion the entire school feels that way...
Thanks for the reminder, Ada PTO! 📸
