Welcome Back to School!

Good morning, ATEMS. Today is Friday, November 16, 2018.  

ATEMS Students should never enter or exit from ATEMS except through the front doors near Mrs. Tucker’s desk (morning/afternoon) or through the cafeteria doors (afternoon only.  ATEMS students should never enter or exit through the TSTC entry.

Our CHAMPS focus this week is “One Earbud Only.”  As you are walking around listening to music or talking on your phone, please use only one earbud.  Remember that an earbud hanging around your ear counts as your “one earbud.”

Students, you are no longer allowed to eat lunch in the front foyer or in Mrs. Mendoza’s office.  There are currently too many students requesting to eat in this area and not enough space, so you will have to find another place to meet for lunch.  From this point forward, the only students allowed at the front foyer during lunch are those waiting for parents to deliver food.

The BEST and VEX robotics teams will meet after school until further notice.

It is time for students to register to be part of the ATEMS TSA Chapter (TSA – Technical Student Association).  TSA has many opportunities for students to showcase what they do at ATEMS. TSA students compete in both IT and Engineering.  Students interested in learning more about TSA need to meet after school November 27th, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving break, in Mr. Haney’s room.

Join the SEC at Mission Thanksgiving today. There is no need to sign up; just meet at Arrow Ford at 4:15, and be ready to work until 6:15. This is an outdoor activity, so plan accordingly with the weather. This will count as a conference event, and you can receive volunteer hours for the time worked. If you have any questions, see an SEC teacher.

We will also host a donation drive for Mission Thanksgiving this week. Bring your items to the boxes near the front office. Needed items include

  • Non-perishable Food (Pop-top cans are very good)
  • Socks
  • Underwear & Thermal Underwear
  • Boots & Shoes
  • Coats
  • Blankets & Sleeping Bags
  • Clothing
  • Bottled Water & Other Drinks
  • Travel size personal hygiene items

Students, we have also been asked for volunteers to help with the annual city-wide Feast of Sharing that will be held at the Abilene Convention Center on Tuesday, December 4th from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m.  They need students who are interested in creating 4-5 booths of children’s activities (things like face painting, bean bag toss, ring toss, or musical chairs). If you are interested in this volunteer activity, please see Mr. Howle.  

Due to the Sophomore/Freshman Trust Card Reward that is today, all freshmen/sophomores will eat Green (first) lunch and participate in study hall/or trust card reward Blue (second) lunch. Students with a trust card will go to the conference room to enjoy cupcakes and soda. Students without a trust card will go to their assigned study hall location. Check your agendas in Schoology for exact details. If any student has questions about Trust Card Rewards, see Mrs. Stanley.

PRINIT students will take a field trip today. Mrs. Aleman’s 5th period class will need to meet at the front of the building in order to board the bus at 12:25. Make sure to ask to be moved to the front of the lunch line so you may have enough time to eat.

Last night art and English II students were honored in an amazing reception at the NCCIL. Congratulations to those students! Thank you for your hard work.

Our quote of the day is “Be thankful for what you have and you’ll end up having more.  If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.“

Have a good Thanksgiving Break, ATEMS.

We are looking forward to the 2017-2018 school year.
