    Students, Ms. Angell has emailed you the Teacher of the Month nomination form for November. Please use this form to nominate a teacher that you think deserves to win.


    Students, there will be no shuttles between the campuses today.  If you usually ride a shuttle between our campus and Abilene High School or Cooper High School, you will report to the conference room.


    Students, twenty volunteers are needed to decorate the ATEMS KXVA Christmas Lights Parade Float. The float will be decorated at A-Town Hi Tech at 4402 South Danville at 1:00 on Saturday the 28th. Those who decorate will have the opportunity to ride on the float and represent ATEMS in the parade.  If you would like to volunteer, contact a teacher who will place your name on the sign-up sheet.   Please do not volunteer if you do not intend to help decorate the float and ride in the parade.  If you do not help to decorate the float, you are still invited to participate in the parade.  Please contact Mr. Haney, Mr. Monroe, or Dr. Garduño if you have any questions.


    The Robotics Club will not meet this week.  Enjoy your Thanksgiving Break and be ready to finish your plans for your VEX robot next week.

    The Abilene High Junior ROTC will host a presentation in the cafeteria during advisory on Monday, November 30th. We invite you to come and join us if you are interested in learning about the fun and educational opportunities the ROTC program has to offer. A sign up document will be shared with everyone so that we know how many will be in attendance.  Please be sure to sign up before 1st period on Monday the 30th if you plan to attend.  On Monday, you will need to report to your Advisory teacher, who will check your name off of the sign-up sheet, and then come to the cafeteria.

ATEMS School Day
8:30 a.m. – 3:35 p.m.

Academy of Technology, Engineering, Math & Science 

As a 21st century school, ATEMS embraces rigor in both traditional core learning areas and in skills typically not taught as a part of a traditional curriculum. The Academy is a unique school in Abilene ISD and will help revolutionize the educational experience of high school students across the Big Country. The overall goal of ATEMS is not only to increase student achievement in math and science, but also to inspire students by exposing them to rigorous “real world” problems and issues using research-based, proven curriculum. 
The campus is technology-rich, mimicking the workplace where all participants have access to the technological tools they need to complete their work.
The campus is fully wireless with a 1:1 computer ratio for all students and facilitators. When projects are completed, external evaluators from a variety of business and education fields come to grade student presentations and final products. All students at the Academy will complete four years of math and science and meet all state requirements for the recommended graduation plan. Upon high school graduation from ATEMS, students will have had the opportunity to accrue at least 30 college hours and participate in capstone or internships with local businesses.
