Welcome! We are looking forward to the start of the new school year at Adel Elementary and DeSoto Intermediate. The staff is eager to see our students after summer break.

Adel Elementary will have Open House before school starts for all students and their families on Monday, August 21st, from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. Parents are encouraged to bring their child to visit the classroom, meet their teacher and ask questions. We ask that you bring your child’s school supplies to Open House, you can view the supply list at this link, AE Supply List 17-18. This will save us instructional time on the first day of school.

Each teacher will conduct formal presentations for parents explaining academic and behavior expectations. Below is the schedule for the formal presentations:

o Preschool, Prekindergarten & Kindergarten 5:55 – 6:10 p.m.
o First Grade 5:35 – 5:50 p.m.
o Second Grade 5:15 – 5:30 p.m.

The remainder of your time can be spent touring the building and getting to know the staff at Adel Elementary.

DeSoto Intermediate’s back to school Open House will occur on two evenings.

  • 3rd grade Open House: Thursday, August 17th from 5:00-6:00 p.m. Classroom teachers will share a presentation at 5:30 p.m.
  • 4th and 5th grade Open House: Monday, August 21st from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Classroom teachers will share presentations at 7:00 and repeat the presentation at 7:30 p.m.
