Rotary Club of Santa Barbara North Awards Adams Family of the Month April 2013 Award to the Fletcher Family

The Rotary Club of Santa Barbara North’s (RCSBN) Adams Family of the Month program honors hard-working, ethical and socially engaged families who contribute to Adams School and provide positive role models for their children and the entire community. On May 8th, Community Service Chair Tom Jacobs and Adams Principal Amy Alzina presented the family with their award certificate.


Mom Erin Fletcher is an angel in the Adams School classroom! When new 3rd grade teacher Christine Gallagher arrived at Adam in November, Mrs. 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. Mrs. Gallagher says, “Her efforts made my transition into the classroom so much easier.” Mrs. Fletcher volunteered to be Mrs. 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 and Trust called “Teach Children to Save” Day. She also serves as the treasurer of the Adams PTA.

3rd 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. Mrs. Gallagher reports, “It is always a pleasure seeing both Fletcher parents at conference time as they both show much interest in their son Jesse’s education.”

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