The public attended the Veterans Day Assembly on Monday, November 11, at 10am. All grade levels performed an activity to honor our veterans. Veterans were provided a free lunch.
Atkins Children's Theatre is excited to announce our upcoming production of Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka Jr. The dates for the play have changed from December to January. The play will now be performed on Friday and Saturday, January 24 and 25 at 7:00pm with a school performance on Monday, January 27 at 9:30am.
Join Charlie Bucket in Willy Wonka's amazing chocolate factory with the other not-so-sweet children, Augustus Gloop and his mother; Veruca Salt and her dad; Violet Beauregarde and her mother; and of course Mike Teevee and his mother. Other characters include Willy Wonka, those super wonderful Oompa-Loompas, Charlie's parents, his grandparents, Phineous Trout, a chorus of Cooks, and some interesting squirrels. You will recognize most of the songs from the Gene Wilder movie. You may not recognize the people playing these parts as we may have girls playing boys' roles...anything is possible through the magic of the stage...and a lot of make-up!!!
Congratulations to AES's Teacher-of-the-Year for 2012-2013 - Mrs. Sheri Gregory!

In order to better serve our parents and community, Smyth County Schools Food Service Program has invested in a web-based cafeteria application called My School Bucks. This application enables parents/guardians to view their child's lunch account status, including account balance, meals eaten, and a la carte/extra items purchased. Parents will also be able to make online payments.
There is no charge to view a student account status; however, the company does charge $2.50 to process each online payment.
To create an account, click the My School Bucks link above. You will need your child's six-digit cafeteria ID number to complete the account setup. Registration is free. New students will receive their cafeteria ID number at the time of registration or on the first day of school.
Atkins Elementary collects Box Tops for Education to raise money for our school! Remember, they are worth 10 cents each! At the end of each month we have a random drawing for a winner FROM EACH CLASSROOM! COLLECT YOUR BOXTOPS!
Now, more than ever, schools need extra financial help to provide our kids with a quality education. The Box Tops for Education program helps us earn necessary funds for our school!
Last year we received an amazing check for $1,397.50! That amount was collected TEN CENTS AT A TIME! YOUR BOX TOPS MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Donít let ONE Box Tops be thrown away! Watch for them on these products!
|Atkins Elementary School is participating in the "Food City School Bucks" program. However, Food City has changed the program. They do not want us "collecting" receipts this year. When you purchase items at Food City - ask the cashier to credit the amount to Atkins Elementary School. Each year you have to sign up for that school year's program, so please sign up to credit Atkins Elementary with your purchases. Thank You.|
