Good morning, ATEMS.  Today is Friday, March 22, 2019.   

The Card o’ the Day is the Ace of Diamonds.  

The following persons chose that card:

De La Rosa


Conference USA





PAC 12




Benjamin Hoyle









After today, there are 44 days of school left.  

After the first day of games in the NCAA Tournament, Mrs. Hope and Mrs. Lambert are leading in the Bracket Challenge.

Our CHAMPS focus this week is “Be Appropriate.”  Please be appropriate when having conversations with friends or hanging out with your “significant” other.

Saturday School is scheduled for March 23rd.  Don’t forget to attend if you have been assigned.  

If you ordered a UIL T-Shirt, please give the money to Maddy Beal or Mr. Monroe. The shirts cost $10.00 (+ $2.00 for plus sizes).  

AISD Deaf Education is also currently doing a t-shirt fundraiser.  If you are interested in purchasing one of their shirts, please take a look at the link within our announcements.  All orders must be prepaid, and the shirts will be distributed to parents and students as they are ready for delivery.

The Cooper H.S. Color Guard is having auditions on April 15th & 16th from 5:30 to 7:00pm in the CHS band hall (next to the auditorium).  Any ATEMS/CHS student interested in being in the Color Guard next year should contact Zach McKennon, Color Guard Director at, or visit for more information.

Young Leadership Abilene provides current freshmen with leadership training opportunities, tours, speakers, and relationship building in the Abilene community during the sophomore school year.  YLA wants to give students a chance to explore the inner workings of their community. The deadline to apply is Friday, April 26th. See Mrs. Yates for additional details. (This looks good on a college resume’.)

Anyone wanting to buy a yearbook can go to All you have to do is put “ATEMS” in the search bar and follow the visual aids to get to the “purchase a yearbook” page. Yearbooks will only be sold a little bit more. The opportunity to purchase one will soon expire.

Seniors, please fill out a Google Form for Senior Superlatives. It was shared with each one of you two weeks ago. The results of the election will go into the yearbook.

On Saturday, March 23.  The Friends of Abilene State Park will host a Volunteer Day from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m..  This is how they describe the event:

This event is for helping out the Abilene State Park with trash and debris pick up.  You will get into the park for FREE for helping out.

Meet at the CCC/Swimming pool area.

Trash bags will be provided.

You may want to bring a “grabber,” good walking shoes, and some gloves.

Freshman and sophomore trust card rewards are today during lunch. All freshmen and sophomores need to eat first lunch and go to study hall or the Trust Card Reward during second lunch. Students with a valid trust card will be permitted in the conference room to enjoy cupcakes and soda. If you do not have a trust card, check with your advisory teachers to find out where your study hall is.

All juniors and seniors need to have study hall first lunch and eat second lunch on Friday.

Conference USA will collect items for the Noah Project all next week. This is a conference competition. Items needed include non-perishable breakfast items, kid-friendly snacks, coffee, and creamer. See the email Ms. Angell sent you for more details. These items can be given to any Conference USA teacher before or after school next week. The Conference USA teachers are Ms. Angell, Mrs. Batson, Mrs. Claxton, or Mr. Owens. Please do not bring items that need to be refrigerated.

Due to the trust card rewards taking place today during lunch, there will be no perfect attendance drawings this week.  However, it is worth noting that ATEMS currently has the highest attendance percentage in the district at 96.8%. Our closest competitor is Austin Elementary at 96.45%.  So keep coming to school every day, keep working hard, and let’s see if we can finish the year above 97% in attendance.

Our quote of the day is “You can’t fall if you don’t climb, but there’s no joy in living your whole life on the ground.”

Have a good weekend, ATEMS.

We are looking forward to the 2018-2019 school year.
