Hello Awesome ATC students,
First of all, to the Seniors – this is it, you are DONE!! Congratulations for getting through twelve or more years of schooling!
Graduation is in a few days, but some of you still have a few things to do before I see you at Dillard on Monday (return laptops, some of you still have textbooks, many of you need to bring a signed Graduation Decorum Letter, and a couple need to bring a signed Media Release – if these items are missing, you will be pulled from graduation).
The link for graduation will be posted on the ATC High School Website today. The parking map will be there as well. Remember, you need to arrive by 3:00 and your two guests must be seated in the gym by 3:40.
The following is for EVERYONE grades 9-12.
For those needing to return items, ATC will be open tomorrow, Saturday June 4th, from 8:00 – 12:00. The location to return items, including those who just need their laptop checked and re-issued for summer learning, is the Tech Office which is located near the Learning Commons. Just head to the Learning Commons and someone will be there to help you. See below for the flyer that was sent out in an earlier message.
Grades 9-11 -- next week is a regular day on Monday and exams on Tuesday and Wednesday. We will be following the Exam Early Release Class Schedule, so for those whose parents pick them up, school will be dismissed at 11:50 on the exam days.
I will be sending out messages via Naviance over the summer about the return to school next year so make sure your email is accurate. Until we return, take some time to relax, reflect, and have some fun. It’s been a long, difficult year and I know I am looking forward to a return to normalcy in August. Be sure to Make Good Choices and Do the Right Thing.
Hello Awesome ATC students,
Most of today's update is for seniors.
Underclassmen, please make sure you are thinking about how you plan to return your laptops and other ATC items by the due date of June 12th. See my previous update for the flyer with all the details.
You are about to enter your last full week as an ATC student -- are you ready?
Your exams will be taken on Thursday, May 27th during normal class time. Friday the 28th will be a normal day. June 1st, 3rd, and 4th will be a series of Teams Webinars during 1st and 2nd period, followed by regular class time, with most of you in Tech during periods 3 & 4. You will not be receiving any grades during this time, but attendance will be taken. The schedule for the Teams Webinars is below. The plan is to have you pop in to your class for attendance, then click on the link to join the webinar.
June 2nd is the graduation breakfast and awards ceremony. Your class is not very good with responding to an RSVP for events, but I am assuming almost everyone is attending as almost everyone ordered a cap & gown and you need to be at the breakfast to pick it up. All ATC items such as textbooks, library books, calculators, sports uniforms, and anything else except laptops MUST be returned or the obligation paid before you will be permitted to participate in the breakfast/awards or receive your cap & gown and graduation tickets. Your laptop can be returned as well, but if you will need it to take part in the webinars or class on June 3rd and 4th, you can keep it and return it on Saturday the 5th or Monday the 7th by 11:00 a.m. You also MUST complete the Senior Survey before you can participate in the breakfast/awards as well, so get it done now so you don't end up in the Learning Commons completing it instead of spending time with your friends.
As a reminder, you will only receive two guest tickets for graduation and everyone must have a ticket, even babies. If you lose your tickets, or the pet goat eats them, or they somehow ended up in the garbage disposal, or anything else, they will not be replaced. Treat them as if they are the winning Mega Ball ticket worth 500 million dollars! Tickets will have your name on them and you will have to verify and sign for them when received. Also, let your guests know that once they enter the venue they will not be able to leave and return. You will receive all the graduation details at the breakfast.
That's all for now. Have a wonderful weekend and as always, make good choices and do the right thing.
Hello Awesome ATC students,
Unlike the end of last school year, we will be collecting laptops, textbooks, calculators, library books, sports uniforms, and anything else you have that belongs to ATC. Laptops will be returned to ATC no matter what school you received them from.
If you are attending the Summer Reconnect program or you are a junior and will be attending your Tech program and will need your laptop for the summer, we will still have to check them and reissue. If you are currently on campus, someone from the Tech Team will see you during the school day. If you are eLearning from home, you will need to come to ATC after school or on a Saturday per the schedule below.
SENIORS: All items other than laptops must be returned, or obligations paid, before you will be permitted to attend the Graduation/Awards Breakfast on June 2nd. You will not receive your cap & gown or graduation tickets unless obligations are cleared. Laptops must be returned no later than 11:00 a.m. on graduation day, June 7th.
GRADES 9-11: The absolute last day to return items will be Saturday, June 12th. Many of you have been returning items on testing days as you are on campus, and I encourage you to keep doing so. Make sure your name is on everything you are returning. If an item is not returned, you will be issued an obligation.
For all students, if a laptop is not returned or is returned damaged, you will be assessed an obligation of $237.50. If the power adapter is not returned or is returned damaged, the obligation will be $25.00.
Starting Monday, May 17th, the following schedule will be followed to return items:
Monday – Thursday 6:45 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. in room 2419 (closed May 31st)
Monday – Thursday 3:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. in Building 1, the main Administration Office next to the Bookstore (closed May 31st)
Saturday, June 5th 8:00 – 11:30 a.m. location TBD
Saturday, June 12th 8:00 – 11:30 a.m. location TBD
We are down to the last few weeks of school, so hang in there and finish strong. Next year we will be back to normal, most likely with a few preventative measures, but it will be wonderful to have in-person learning again. Those of you who have been home, time to locate those uniforms and get them ready!
It's going to be a great weekend for outdoor activities, so get out and enjoy! Make those good choices and do the right thing. Take care of yourselves and one another - wear a mask, watch your distance, and wash your hands.
