Rotary Club of SB North Salutes Adams School’s Fletcher Family

The Rotary Club of Santa Barbara North’s Adams Family of the Month program honors hardworking, ethical and socially engaged families who contribute to Adams School and provide positive role models for their children and the entire community.

On May 8, community service chair Tom Jacobs and Adams Principal Amy Alzina presented the Fletcher family with their award certificate.

Mom Erin Fletcher is an angel in the Adams School classroom. When new third-grade teacher Christine Gallagher arrived at Adams in November, Fletcher welcomed her into the Adams family by organizing a “Parent Social” so that all parents could come and meet the “new” teacher of Room 8.

“Her efforts made my transition into the classroom so much easier,” Gallagher said.

Fletcher volunteered to be Gallagher’s room parent and helps organize classroom events. She often stops by in the afternoon to chat with the students and check to see how they are doing. She recently led the class in an activity provided by Montecito Bank & Trust for Teach Children to Save Day. She also serves as the treasurer of the Adams PTA.

Third-grader Jesse earned the Character Counts Award for citizenship and is a model student. He loves social studies and math, and after school is active in sports.

“It is always a pleasure seeing both Fletcher parents at conference time as they both show much interest in their son Jesse’s education,” Gallagher said.

Erin Fletcher and her family show how dedicated and supportive parents at Adams School are building a true community of leaning and caring.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
