Senior Events 2019

Good morning, ATEMS.  Today is Friday, May 17, 2019. 

The Card o’ the Day is the Six of Hearts.  The following students chose that card:


















Conference USA





PAC 12








After today, there are 5 days of school left.  

Our CHAMPS focus this week is “No Hats Please” – Remind students to take off their hats, hoodies, knit caps, and toboggans when they enter the building.

All students report to their Advisory class Monday morning for transport to CHS for the Awards assembly.  This includes students who are off campus during 1st period at either Cooper or Abilene High.

There is a mandatory Senior meeting in the conference room today during study hall.  Change in plans . . . ALL Seniors will report to their Advisory class at the beginning of lunch, check in for attendance, then go to the conference room for our meeting.   Upon conclusion of the meeting, students who are attending the Baccalaureate ceremony practice will be allowed to leave campus.  Those who are not attending Baccalaureate will remain on campus and be expected to attend all afternoon classes. Senior level Study Hall teachers will need to help monitor the cafeteria/courtyard while the Seniors are at the meeting.

Saturday School is scheduled for this Saturday, May the 18th.  You will be contacted by Mrs. Yates if you are required to attend.  Don’t forget, your credits are at stake.

Students who have checked out textbooks should return those to the appropriate teacher before Friday, May 17th.  Failure to return those textbooks will result in a hold being placed on your student account.   Seniors, that means you will not receive your diploma.

Volunteer Activities:


From Robbie Burleson with the Abilene Zoo:

Zoolute is coming up on Saturday, May 18 at the Abilene Zoo.  Free Admission to all active, veterans and retired military and their families.  Activities include free food, music, bounce houses and more. We need volunteers to help us, so we can provide the best experience possible for the guests.  Sign Up Here to volunteer for Zoolute.  This is a new volunteer software, and you will need to create an account.  

Book Sale

The Friends of the Public Library will have a book sale from Thursday, June 13th through Sunday, June 16th and they are looking for volunteers.  Please see Mrs. Nall if you are interested in signing up for this activity.

Flag Laying Ceremony

The Texas State Veterans Cemetery at Abilene will host a Flag Laying ceremony from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. on May 24.  This would be an excellent service opportunity. We invite members of the community to assist with the placing of the flags on each grave and columbarium at the Texas State Veterans Cemetery in Abilene.

Summer school information is now available.  Please see Mrs. Nall for an information bulletin and registration papers.  If you know you are going to fail a class, you need to come and get the paperwork so you can register early.  If you do not, you will HAVE TO register at Cooper High School on May 30th.

Khan Academy has announced the Breakthrough Junior Challenge for 2019.  CHALLENGE

You get it. You’ve grasped an important scientific theory, concept or principle.

Now can you share your insight?

An inventive video can get across complex material that would take pages of text to communicate.

To take part in the Breakthrough Junior Challenge (the “Challenge”), create a short video (3:00 minutes max) to explain a big idea in one of these fields:

  • Physics
  • Mathematics
  • Life Sciences

Your film can take any form you like: animation, talking head, documentary, dramatic reconstruction, whatever. It’s worth keeping in mind that video is a dynamic visual medium – using diagrams, simulations, physical demonstrations etc. is a lot more effective than standing in front of a blackboard talking.

The videos will be judged according to the following criteria:

  • Engagement
  • Illumination
  • Creativity
  • Difficulty

If you’re looking for guidance, you can see some of last year’s top-scoring entries here and below. But remember, to show ‘creativity’ your film should be as original as possible.

Any student taking dual credit next year with Angelo State, whether it is English or Biology, has to have forms filled out and turned in by Monday, May 20th.  This is also for those of you that are in DC English 3 this year.

STARS will be giving out birthday cupcakes today. If you have either a May, June, or July birthday, you may come by the cafeteria after school today to pick up your cupcake. If you are attending baccalaureate practice or are off campus 7th period, you may pick up your cupcake in Ms. Angell’s room before leaving campus.

Students, final exam exemption letters were distributed to you on Wednesday.  You have until today to get signatures from your teachers and decide from which classes you will choose to be exempt.  These exemptions letters should be turned in to your Advisory teacher. Do not let students out of class to get teacher signatures.  

Juniors and Seniors remember to pick up your off-campus permission forms if you wish to leave campus during your exempted testing period.  You must have another form for this semester.  

Everyone needs to remember that during finals (whether you are exempt or not), you must still check in to ALL OF YOUR CLASSES for attendance purposes.  Then, if you are exempt, you may leave and go to the appropriate holding areas. Juniors and Seniors, if you wish to go off campus during your exemptions, you must have permission paperwork filled out through Mrs. Yates.  Additionally, if you are late coming back for a class, this privilege will be revoked.

Remember the criteria for being exempt from your tests:
