Kid’s Mother’s Day Issue

Adams School, 2007


Saturday, March 10, 2007

For 13 years, The Independent has joined with students at a South Coast elementary school to produce a Mother’s Day edition, and this year’s school was Adams Elementary. As a Character Counts school, Adams both teaches and instills responsibility, respectability, and a solid work ethic in its Tigers. Not only do the students embody these virtues, but students and teachers alike show an admirably high level of pride in their campus.

More than 200 students from 12 different third-, fourth-, and fifth-grade classes worked with The Independent to produce the stories, cover art, and advertising in this year’s edition. The Independent provided the students with the fundamentals of newspaper production, including teaching elements of writing, editing, and art design.

This very special issue of The Independent was put together as a dedication to all the mothers and family members of the students. It is the families of these children who have made an indelible impact on their lives and contribute to their continued academic success. The Independent thanks the students for their passion and work and their families who inspire them.

Happy Mother’s Day!
