Welcome to Adams Elementary!

Greetings Students, Parents and Staff,

My name is Bill Varady (Vardy).  I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Yakima School District for the opportunity to serve the students, staff and parents at Adams Elementary.

My education includes a B.S.  from Montana State University, a  Reading Endorsement  from Eastern Oregon University, a Master’s Degree in Administration  from Eastern Washington University and a Superintendent’s License  from the University of Oregon.

I am a Servant Leader.  My role is to serve in a manner which leads all students to excel in their education and life.  My goal for Adams Elementary is to continue the great work that has been done over the last several years by students, parents and staff.  I will focus my efforts on having the students continue to demonstrate improving academic excellence.  I will also work to create an environment which is safe, caring and rich with educational opportunities.

I look forward to continuing to serve and work with students, staff and parents of the Yakima School District.


Mr. Varady

Healthy Youth Survey

Washington State 2016 Healthy Youth Survey

Our district is participating in the Washington State 2016 Healthy Youth Survey during the weeks of October 10th - 21st.

The Healthy Youth survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, access to school-based services, and sexual behaviors, abuse and orientation. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.

The Healthy Youth Survey is given to students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 across Washington State.

Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students' answers are anonymous.

Please read the Parent and Student Notification flyer for more information about the Healthy Youth Survey.
