The third graders have been studying animal habitats and adaptations in Science class. These students made animal habitats as a project. Congratulations on your projects!
Thanks to everyone who helped with and/or participated with the Atkins PTO's Fall Indoor Yard Sale that was held on Saturday, October 4, in the Atkins Elementary Gym. Thank you for your support for AES!
AES students and faculty had a great time participating in the Special Games Day at Chilhowie High on October 1, with other Smyth County students. They had fun with sporting events, games, and face painting, as well as other activities.
Atkin's second grade teacher, Mrs. Beth Pratt, was surprised by a visit from radio station, FM 94, on October 2. She was chosen as FM 94's First Teacher-of-the-Month. Mrs. Pratt received a plaque and a gift basket containing a variety of gifts. Congratulations, Mrs. Pratt!
Grandparents were invited to AES to celebrate Grandparents' Week, September 8-12 and have breakfast or lunch with their grandchild. Over 100 grandparents visited, ate with, and had pictures made with their grandchildren. AES feels grandparents are very special to us! Thank you for visiting your grandchild or grandchildren.
A group from AES took the ALS Challenge and deserve a big thumbs up. Anyone who would like to donate to this wonderful cause can give to Ms. Leaman in the office. If you write a check make it out to Atkins Elementary. After all the money is collected we are going to write a school check to the ASL Foundation.
Congratulations to AES's Teacher-of-the-Year for 2012-2013 - Mrs. Crystal Jennings!
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.|
