Good morning, ATEMS. Today is Friday, September 21, 2018.

The courtyard and front eating areas will be closed today due to rain.  Upperclassmen with Trust Cards will need to eat in Student Central. Mr. Monroe’s room ( room 210) will be open for lunch today.

Also students, anyone still wanting to register to vote during the November elections is invited to the conference room during Advisory today.  Mr. Howle will be there to help answer your questions about the registration process so just ask your Advisory teacher for permission. Remember, there are some big elections taking place this year, and your vote does indeed have an impact.

Students, you must park in the parking area reserved for ATEMS.  Do not park in the TSTC or teacher parking. If you have not yet gotten a parking permit, you must see Mrs. Tucker to get one for your vehicle.

Football tickets for the Abilene High School vs. Midland High School football game, which is tonight at 7:30, are on sale for $4.00 at the front desk until noon today.  They will be $8.00 at the gate.

Students, this weekend is also the Abilene High School Homecoming which means they will host a dance on Saturday night.  ATEMS students are NOT allowed to attend the homecoming dance unless invited by an AHS student, so please do not show up uninvited and expect admission.  You will be turned away.

From Mr. West, the annual Abilene College Fair is October 1 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Abilene Convention Center. There will be over 50 colleges available to speak to prospective students about their admission process.

Students are encouraged to attend to gain more information about the college admission process. Conference points will be available for those in attendance. To receive conference points, please find Mr. West during the college fair.

You are invited to participate in the Coins for Kids campaign which supports children’s programs of the United Way. This will also be an opportunity to earn points for your conference. Jars will be placed downstairs by the front doors, simply place coins in your conference jar to win and help the United Way of Abilene. The winning conference will receive free tickets to the HSU vs. MCM crosstown football game on Saturday, November 10th at 1:00 p.m. and receive recognition at the half-time of the HSU-McM football game.

The engineering department at ATEMS will host a guest speaker during MegaLunch next Wednesday, September 26th.  Alan Hartmann of Hartmann’s Inc. will speak about his experiences as an owner of an international engineering company and discuss what you need to know to be gainfully employed after high school and after college. If you plan on being employed in one of the STEMS fields this is a talk you should attend. This presentation will be in the former TSTC EMS classroom (where Mr. Dam is currently meeting). Seating is limited so If you are interested in attending see Mr. Haney for ticket. If you have questions see Mr. Haney.

Our quote of the day “Sooner or later, those that win are those that THINK they can.”
