Good morning, ATEMS.  Today is Friday, January 17th, 2020.  

Our CHAMPS focus this week is “Walk and Talk”.  Please continue walking as you are visiting with friends and heading to class.  

  • Note:  Please be especially quiet when walking up and down the main stairwell.  There is a TSTC testing room immediately below that stairwell and they are interrupted each time we walk through that area.

No after school tutorial busses today.

Today is an “A” and “C” lunch day.

Because we cannot go outside today, during your lunch period, we need ALL Freshmen & Sophomores to eat inside the cafeteria, and ALL Juniors and Seniors to eat in Student Central (regardless if you have a trust card – or not).  Juniors & Seniors with trust cards will still be allowed to go off campus for lunch and Seniors may sit in Senior Commons with a trust card.


  • The Abilene ISD UIL planning team would like to request help for our upcoming Elementary UIL competition that will be held at Cooper High School.  If you are interested, please follow the link in our announcements.
