Good morning, ATEMS.  Today is Friday, November 15th, 2019. 

Afton Clare Condra was born yesterday, weighing 9lbs. 2 oz.  Congratulations, Mrs. Condra on the newest addition to your family!

Our CHAMPS focus this week is “Walk and Talk”.  Please continue walking as your talking to friends and going to your classes.

No after school tutorial busses today.

Today is an “A” and “C” lunch day.

Students, if you have aerosol (or spray) cologne/perfume, please do not use it in the middle of class or within areas where there are large numbers of students.  Some people are allergic to those scents or may have adverse reactions to them, so please be considerate to the needs of others.

Also, we are into the cold and flu season, so students (and teachers) remember these few tips:

  • Routinely wash your hands during the day and/or use hand sanitizer
    • Use soap and warm water for at least 30 seconds
  • Don’t share writing/eating utensils with one another
  • Don’t chew on your pens/pencils, etc. while in class
  • Routinely clean work spaces and laptop computers
  • Clean your bathroom passes when re-entering the classroom

Juniors, if your ordered a class ring from Josten’s, the ceremony for the delivery of those rings is next Tuesday, November 19th at the One AISD Boardroom starting at 6:00pm.  Please make plans to be in attendance that evening to accept your rings.

Seniors, if you didn’t turn in your cap & gown orders last week, you will now be required to take your order form directly to the Josten’s office on Industrial Blvd.  You must place an order prior to the Christmas break to ensure delivery by the end of the school year.

Attention all bus riders, upon receiving your new bus tag badge, please keep it in a safe place or your replacement cost will be $5 (and eventually you won’t be able to ride the bus if it hasn’t been replaced).   

Juniors, please fill out the form you received in your email from Mrs. Nall.  It will be available until November the 20th.  

The following students were honored yesterday as the 2nd Six Weeks “Students of the Six Weeks”, so we say congratulations once again to:

Freshmen: Jamiya Redwine & Joshua Thompson

Sophomores: Kaylynn Reyna & Claude Nduwimana

Juniors: Davina Hawkins & Cooper Naredo

Seniors: Hailey Signor & Seth Levesque
