Michener Elementary School - Adrian, MI


Hello Adrian community!
"Clang clang rattle bing bang, gonna make my noise all day!" Join your music teacher Mrs. Force for the beloved classroom story "Mortimer" by Robert Munsch. Explore ways to use your voice to tell stories too (singing, characters, sound effects).

Hello Michener friends and families! Here's a link to Mrs. Force reading one of her favorite stories "The Best Mariachi in the World" by J.D. Smith. Enjoy!
Something to look into.

I was so happy the parking lot was getting paved, but who on earth designed it this way?

It seems that both "entrances" are only wide enough for one, but the slanted parking spots are going the wrong way for a typical 'enter on the right, exit on the left' scenario. Plus having the back lot closed off left nowhere to park before circling several times. Ppl were parking in the driving area blocking ppl in. Plus cars coming in and out both ways made backing out of a spot dangerous!
Where can i find a 5th grade supply list?

Michener Elementary School, part of the Adrian Public School District, offers a unique educational experience from Young 5s through 5th grade.

Thank you to the Adrian District Library for being such a fantastic community partner and continuing to support our students.

"Grab & Go” kits and “Explore . . . Book Bundles” are now available for children at the Adrian District Library. September’s theme for Grab & Go kits is pirates, in celebration of International “Talk Like a Pirate Day” on September 19. Each kit is free to any child and includes crafts and activity pages. Kits are available to pick up in the youth department or through the library’s curbside service.

Book Bundles are collections of several books and/or DVD’s and activity pages that are available to borrow on an Adrian District Library card. Each collection focuses on a theme of interest to children including pets, transportation, and construction. Available themes continually change and custom Book Bundles can be created upon request.

For more information, contact the library at 517-265-2265 or email Cathy Chesher, Youth Services Librarian, at [email protected]. The Adrian District Library is located in downtown Adrian at 143 E. Maumee St. The library is open regular hours to the public. Face coverings required to enter. Curbside service is also available. Contact the library for details.


Michener PTO purchased a water bottle for every student this year! With our drinking fountains turned off this year, they knew these would be helpful for our students! Our water bottle refill station is still operating (since it’s no contact). Teachers will write first and last names on bottles for students. Each classroom teacher will handle their own distribution process. We recommend these are washed prior to use (hand wash only).

If you’re a Michener virtual student, stay-tuned! We’ll communicate a plan to distribute your water bottles, too!

Help us in thanking our generous PTO! 👏🏼


Thank you very much to Legacy Arbor for their very generous donation of 100 headphones for our students! We are so grateful for your support!!!


Great first day of school! I could not be more proud of the Michener staff for creating a fun and safe environment to learn in. Parents thank you for sharing your beautiful children with us!


We’ll see you tomorrow at 8:25am!
Welcome back! 💙


Michener families,

This message will be a bit longer than most with important information you may want to write down.

I am excited to get the new school year underway. We have taken tremendous strides to ensure a safe, enjoyable and very educational school year for your children. The teachers have decorated their classrooms, arranged the furniture for social distancing, created great lessons and are ready to teach your children. Here are some important details you need to know about school this year.

The first day of school is Tuesday, September 8th. School starts at 8:35 and ends at 2:00 p.m. Students will not be allowed into the building until 8:25 a.m. and should remain in their cars or on the bus until then. Parents please drop your child off in the location indicated on the map that was mailed to you. If you are a 1st through 5th grade parent, please stay in your car and enjoy our curbside service. If you are a Kindergarten parent, please drop off any older siblings first and then park at the curb by the playground. You will walk your child to the Kindergarten Drop Off Door and sign them in.

Remember to screen your child for Covid symptoms at home each day before school. The children will have a temperature check when they arrive in their classrooms.

Students and staff are required to wear masks while at school in accordance with the Adrian Public Schools Return to Learning Plan. Masks breaks will be given throughout the day.

Parents will not be allowed to walk their children to their classrooms this year. Adults will be outside to guide children into the building and teachers will be in the hallways to walk them to class. Breakfast and lunch will be served in the classrooms.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call me at 263-9002 or email me. I will gladly help in any way I can. Together we are going to make this a great school year!

Mrs. Lacasse, Principal
