Campus Goals

Our Adam community puts kids first by building strong relationships through an engaging learning environment that is positive, challenging, and fun. We believe encouragement, patience, high expectations, and quality instruction will lead to the academic success of all our students.

How We Got Our Name

B. F. Adam Elementary was named after a very successful businessman and community leader in the Cypress-Fairbanks area. Mr. Adam was born in Cypress, Texas, and lived most of his life within the boundaries of Cypress-Fairbanks ISD. He served 24 years on the board of education, and he and his wife, Irene, reared four sons who went through the Cypress-Fairbanks school system. Mr. Adam and his family were actively involved in the community.

 

PTO

 

The Adam PTO meets on a regular basis. The organization funds cultural arts activities and field trips, organizes volunteers, sponsors various student events, and conducts fund-raisers, which have provided technology, landscaping, books, and playground equipment. PTO Board
