The Five Star Journal highlights student & community success across the district

The Five Star Journal is a quarterly publication (October, December, March and May) of Adams 12 Five Star Schools. The Journal features news from our more than 50 schools, districtwide learning initiatives, tips for parents to support their students and much more. The families of our more than 39,000 students receive the Journal.
