ATEMS High School
Welcome Back to School!
ATEMS Robotics Team
Good morning, ATEMS. Today is Friday, January 18, 2019.
Our CHAMPS focus this week is “Be Appropriate.” When having conversations, or hanging out with your “significant other,” make sure you are not saying or doing anything inappropriate.
The Hispanic Leadership Council will host a College and Career Planning Seminar on Saturday, January 26th at ACU from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The event is free and open to all high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors, and its goal is to help students learn more about college admissions, financial aid, and how to apply for scholarships. Lunch and door prizes will be provided, and various college representatives and employers will be on hand to answer your questions. See Mr. West for further registration information.
Sign Language classes are once again being offered at Madison M.S. this spring. Classes will be Tuesday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. beginning January 29th and running through April 16th. There is a cost to join the program, so see Mr. Howle if you are interested.
ATEMS Student Council will host a Fun Night tonight from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. There will be video game tournaments, board games, food, and music. Tickets will be sold during Mega Lunch for $5.00. You may also purchase a ticket at the door for $8.00. Each ticket will come with a drink and free raffle ticket, a chance to win a $50 Sonic gift card, and other prizes. There will be pizza, and students are encouraged to bring video game consoles and board games. This is a conference competition. We look forward to seeing you there!
The ATEMS Winter Formal or “Yule Ball,” is tomorrow. The dance will take place from 7:30 to 11:00 p.m. at the McMurry Mabee Room. Advance tickets will be sold for $10 a person beginning this Thursday and will be $15.00 at the door. All high school students are invited to attend this event, and you are allowed to bring a guest from a visiting school. See Maddy Beal and/or Jackie Lacey for further details (as they will be the ones selling the tickets).
The National Technical Honor Society Induction Ceremony is on Tuesday, February 5th at the Cooper High School Auditorium. To be eligible for NTHS, you must have a minimum, overall, GPA of 85 and a minimum GPA of 85 in your CTE program. You must also be in your third semester of a CTE course of study. Sophomores through Seniors are eligible to join, as you are all in a CTE course of study here at ATEMS! There is a one-time membership fee of $30, and you have the opportunity to be eligible for multiple scholarships. If you would like to be in NTHS, you need to see Mrs. Kelley (or in her absence, Mr. Voss). Applications are due on January 24th by 4:00 p.m.
Do not miss out on the 2018-19 ATEMS yearbook. It will have plenty of memories for you to keep. Go to Balfour.com to order. Prices will go up, so buy it now.
Students planning to compete in TSA events need to pay their TSA dues. TSA dues are due. See Mr. Haney or Mrs. Stanley to pay or if you have any questions.
ATEMS Robotics will host its first VEX Robotics Competition, “Rumble in the Big Country,” tomorrow at the Region 14 South Campus on South Treadaway Blvd. Robots will start playing at 9:00, and the competition begins at 10:00. The team invites all ATEMS students, parents, and staff to attend and see what VEX Robotics is all about. Volunteers are needed. Community service hours will be given for volunteering. See Mr. Haney or Mrs. Stanley if you have any questions.
If you are involved in UIL Academics, you need to contact your sponsor(s) in order to participate in Virtual Challenge Meet #3.
Trust Card Rewards are this week. Juniors and Seniors with a Trust Card will have the opportunity to enjoy cupcakes and soda in the conference room today instead of study hall. Because of this, all juniors and seniors will eat first lunch of Friday and have study hall/reward second lunch. Juniors without a trust card need to report to Mr. Owens’ room for study hall. Seniors without a trust card need to report to Mr. Dam for study hall. All Freshmen and Sophomores will have study hall first lunch and eat second lunch on Friday.
The Prom Committee is in need of your help collecting some items for decorations. We need clean 2-liter soda bottles and mason jars. You may bring these items to Mrs. Hope’s room.
Our quote of the day is, “It is better to look ahead and prepare than to look back and regret.”
Have a good weekend, ATEMS.
