Welcome to Ada Elementary!
Welcome to Ada Elementary, a wonderful place in which to learn, gain new experiences, and make friends. We are known for our culture…a culture that encourages and recognizes academic growth, promotes social responsibility, and warmly welcomes all students and families. We believe that all students can learn. Ada’s experienced staff meets collaboratively every month to review student achievement to ensure continuous improvement in learning. Our classroom instruction is interactive, relevant, and engaging. Technology is integrated into lessons that are rich in content and differentiated for learners. Students learn the importance and responsibility of caring for others. Our community partnerships, our involved parents, and the generous support of our active PTO enrich the instructional and learning experiences of our children. Take time to review our website to learn a little more about us. Please contact us if you have specific questions or concerns at 616-493-8940, or stop by and see what makes Ada so special!

Our students and staff are looking forward to our final Mix-It-Up lunch of the 2014-2015 school year on Wednesday, April 22, but at this time we only have a few adult volunteers to run the lunch groups. We do not have enough volunteers to run this event. Please consider volunteering by the end of tomorrow, or we will have to cancel the Mix It Up Lunch. Last fall’s lunch was a lot of fun, and we would love to have a great turnout of adult volunteers to help our students with their spring lunch. This lunch is an intentional time of helping our students understand and celebrate the fact that we—all of us together—are Ada Elementary—and Forest Hills! Sign up today! Read more
