Choosing Characters in Memorable JQA Schoolwide Election


Students at John Quincy Adams participated in a schoolwide election on Nov. 9 to choose their favorite book character for president, coordinated by math lab teacher Debbie Bradbury.

The students were read two selections, “Grace for President” and “Max for President,” then cast their votes in the JQA gymnasium by using laptop computers. The election results, in which the students chose Grace as their favorite character and book, were then graphed and displayed in the lobby for all to see.  

“This election experience was both exciting and educational for the students at John Quincy Adams, and will be remembered for years to come,” said Bradbury.

Candleholder Crafting at JQA


Just in time for Halloween, visiting family members helped preschoolers at John Quincy Adams construct decorative pumpkin candleholders using glass jars, colored tissue and glue.

“Our pre-K students were so excited to have their parents, grandparents and special guests come into their classrooms to help out with our annual pumpkin workshop,” said Principal Christopher Molinelli. “Everyone had a wonderful time creating a Halloween craft.”

JQA Makes National Top 100 in Math Fundraiser

The caring young mathematicians of John Quincy Adams knew they had done something wonderful earlier this year when they raised more than $8,900 in funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as part of the school’s fifth annual Math-A-Thon program, but the full extent of their charitable endeavor was not yet clear. St. Jude recently informed JQA that it had earned a spot in the top 100 Math-A-Thon fundraising schools for the 2015-2016 school year, coming in at No. 86 in the entire nation.
