(Students who would like to be considered for admission to ATEMS for the 2018-2019 school year)
Good morning, ATEMS. Today is Friday, March 23, 2018.
As of Monday, we had 52 days of school left in this school year. Coincidentally, that is the same number of weeks in a year and cards in a standard deck of playing cards. Mrs. Yates and I are counting down using a deck of playing cards. Today is the 5 of clubs. That means we have forty-seven days of school left after today. Check your emails for a form in which you have the opportunity to guess what card will be played on the last day. The winner gets a prize. I have a running list of which cards have been played at the bottom of the Daily Announcements. I will stop taking submissions to the form by the end of the day today.
Students, Camp Rehab is looking for amazing volunteers for CAMP REHAB 2018. The dates are June 5th, 6th, 7th from 7:30 am - 3:30 p.m. Volunteers must be at least 15 years old. A form is attached to the email you received in your emails this morning. This is an excellent opportunity for any student who is interested in pursuing a career in the medical field, and it is an excellent opportunity for service hours.
Seniors, there will be a Senior Survey, but it is not ready to complete yet. We will let you know when it is time to take the Senior Survey.
Saturday School is scheduled for tomorrow. Letters have been sent to parents. Failure to attend an assigned Saturday School can result in denied credit. If you have questions, see Mrs. Yates.
If you are a UIL participant, you have received a letter and a schedule from Mr. Monroe. Please share the information with your parents or guardians. We will leave from ATEMS no later than 4:30 a.m. on Saturday morning. Please arrive at 4:15 a.m. Remember that you must wear your school ID at all times when you are on a school campus. This is of even greater importance when you are visiting another school. In terms of how you should dress, you must at least follow the school dress code. I think it is always a good idea to dress professionally when you represent your school, but the minimum requirement is to follow the AISD School Dress Code. If you have any questions or concerns about the UIL contest this Saturday, please speak with your team sponsor or with Mr. Monroe. Please remember to join the Remind App as soon as possible.
Robotics will meet after school until 4:30 today. The TSA VEX Robotics team will meet until 5:00 today.
Cisco College will host a FAFSA night at their Abilene campus on March 27. If you are a senior and you cannot attend a FAFSA event, please see Mr. West, and he will assist you with the FAFSA.
Next week, March 26th to the 29th, the Student Council Energy and Environment Committee will host an Energy Conservation Week to promote awareness about renewable energy sources. Students will be allowed to dress up according to theme colors for each energy source to gain conference points. Monday is blue for hydropower. Tuesday is yellow for solar power. Wednesday is white for wind power, and Thursday is red for geothermal power. The Energy and Environment committee looks forward to your participation!
Sophomores and juniors, you received the information packet for the following event in your emails yesterday. If you have any questions about the event, please contact Mr. West.
