Ada's latest news

It's in the January elementary newsletter

Everything that takes place this month is part of the newsletter - posted here

Ada elementary's January newsletter was posted on the school website. Here is the information in the newsletter.

During the week of Jan. 8 we will be benchmarking our students' progress in reading and math by taking the Star Reading and Math assessments. This important data shows us and you how students have grown from the beginning of the school year. Look for results to come home with your student later this month.

One-quarter million views

That's how many clicks Ada Icon received in 2017 - here's lots more stats

By Monty Siekerman
During the past year, the Ada Icon saw a significant increase in the number of stories viewed, more than a quarter of a million—272,327 to be exact. That’s an increase of 23 percent in the past year.

Truly, the Ada Icon lives up to its motto, “Where Ada gets its news.”

And, the Icon tries hard to meet the local news appetite. We posted more than 2,500 stories in 2017. Some weeks saw 70 or more local stories made available to readers. That's a lot of news, week after week, from a village that is only 2 square miles in size. 

School board to meet

The Ada Schools reorganization meeting and regular board meeting for January will be held at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 10, at the school.
