PACT (Parents And Child Together): Our Parent and Child Together (PACT) committee has monthly meetings that focus on educational topics and activities that support our students and teachers.  All Adel Elementary parents are invited to attend.  If you are interested in learning the date of the next meeting, please contact Tiffany Graham at Adel Elementary by email ( or by phone at 515.993.4285.

Ways to be included in meaningful experiences during the school day:

Watch DOGS: This program encourages fathers, grandfathers, and uncles of Adel Elementary and DeSoto Intermediate students to volunteer to spend the day at the school serving as a positive role model.  The volunteers spend time on the playground, in the lunchroom, and helping in classrooms.  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Amy Goos at 515.993.4285, or contact your child’s building office.
