Alexander Elementary

The mission of Adrian Public Schools is to provide, in partnership with parents and our community, quality educational opportunities that challenge students to excel academically and socially to become contributing citizens.

I'm not sure if you've heard (I'm sure you have!) but we have an ELF at Alexander...her name is Alex. Here are some of her hijinks so far this season.

These forms will be coming home this week.

Well, we are ready to kick off an exciting 2020 season here in the Community Recreation Department. As you may know, we have partnered with the City of Adrian and the YMCA to bring even more affordable and high-quality programs to the students of Adrian Public Schools.

Join us for our first program starting on January 13th, Maple Fitness Club Session #1. MFC will be an exploration of nontraditional activities that will focus on students' health and wellness. Students will partake in Kids Yoga and Youth fit, which is a fun and interactive class focused on cardio and core training.
