School Spirit Day - December 8

This Friday is our school spirit day.  The theme is Famous Day.  Can't wait to see what everyone is going to be.


Texas Elementary School Needs Library Books!

As you know, in late August, the force of Hurricane Harvey caused tremendous damage, including catastrophic flooding in southeast Texas and Louisiana.  Juan Seguin Elementary School in Richmond, Texas, was decimated, along with their entire library collection.  Adobe Bluffs Elementary Library, and many other school libraries in our district, would like to help restore their library's book collection with your support.  Bound to Stay Bound (BTSB), a children's library book vendor, created "S.O.S. Library" that provides an online wish list submitted by Juan Seguin Elementary.  You can purchase books directly from that wish list, and for every book you purchase, BTSB will generously donate four books!  It's easy to do.  Simply go to BTSB's website at 


to pick and purchase books and your selections will be shipped directly to the school.  How nice it would be for the children at Juan Seguin Elementary to find a collection of new library books waiting for them when they return to their school!  The deadline for your purchases is January 20, 2018.  If you have any questions, please contact our librarian, Mrs. Lingner at slingner@powayusd.com.  Thank you!


The Adobe Bluffs Crochet Club needs yarn!  

If you, or someone you know, have yarn left over from completed projects or projects you will never have time to do, we would love to put it to good use.  Please bring donations to the Adobe Bluffs Library or the school office.  Thank you for your help.
