• Good morning, ATEMS. Today is Thursday, August 25.



    Students, you must be quiet when you are in the stairwells.  When you go upstairs or downstairs (especially in the front stairwell near Mr. Monroe’s room), you must be quiet or that stairwell may be closed.


    From Mrs. Castillo, students it is imperative that you follow your schedule.  You may not drop any AHS/ CHS courses without first speaking to your director/ coach.  You may also not drop any PAP/ AP course without following due process.  Please be patient regarding schedule changes.  Thanks!  If you would like to apply for outside PE credit, forms are located outside of Mrs. Castillo’s office.  Please return them this week.   


    If you’re interested in working on the yearbook, we will meet NEXT Tuesday, August 30 in Mrs. Batson’s room after school.


    If you enjoy public speaking or current events, come to Mrs. Hope’s room Wednesday after school to discuss joining Extemporaneous Speaking for UIL!


    ATEMS Robotics will hold informational meeting Monday and Tuesday, August 29th and 30th, from 3:40 to 4:10 in the Engineering Lab.  If you are interested in joining the robotics team or just want more information about ATEMS robotics please attend these meetings.
