Black History Month Activity & I Want a Better Grade Opportunity
Hello Awesome ATC students,
Join ATC's poetry club at their first event on Friday, February 26th, 2021 during lunch as they showcase original poetry pieces highlighting Black History and its influence in the Caribbean culture, music, television, art, civil rights, and so much more. Just grab your food and click the link below for a cultural lunchtime experience.
Do you want better grades????? How about a better SAT score for those of you who are in the 11th and 12th grades??
Then, you should be going to our ATC Academic Assistance and Enrichment Program (AAEP). There is tutoring available in English, Math, Science, Social Studies/History, and Spanish. In addition, there is SAT Math and SAT Reading for those in 11th and 12th grade. These sessions are perfect to do some work that may be a little late, or get some assistance on an assignment you didn't do too well on to improve. You can also use the session to work on a group assignment with others in your group. If you did not accept the tutoring invitation for each subject when it was sent to you, click on the link below to be directed AAEP schedule flyer, which has links to the Teams sessions. You can also get the information on the ATC High School Website.
If you have a D or F in your class, you should definitely participate, and remember you have the power to improve your situation by making good choices - including the choice to attend AAEP.
Remember, if you received an A in a class, you may be eligible to volunteer as a peer tutor. See my message from February 12th for more information.
Are you in the 9th or 10th grade and want more information on being College Ready? Sarai Maxwell, ATC Brace Cadet is hosting a College Readiness Google Classroom to help you. For more information click on the link below:

Student Updates 2.8.21
Hello Awesome ATC students,
We are getting close to mid-way through 3rd quarter – hope you ae doing your best!
On Wednesday, February 10th at 11:00 a.m., we will be planting a trio of bougainvillea trees to honor and remember those lost and injured at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14, 2018. For those on campus, with your teacher’s permission, you can assist us with the planting and dedication. The trees will be planted in the area between my office and portable 14.
For those eLearning from home, as a reminder, you can participate as well. Last week, Ms. Castelli added all high school students to a Canvas course where you can write a poem or perform and original poem for the Day of Love and Remembrance. Some of these poems will be selected and read at the tree dedication. The poems must be turned in by the end of the day Tuesday, February 9th.
Don’t forget to get involved with the Yearbook. You will definitely want some pictures in it and you will want to purchase one so fifty years from now when your grandchildren ask you what you did during the Great Pandemic, you will be able to get out the Yearbook to show them. Click on the link below for more information.

Finally, this message is for seniors. We are currently making plans to hold an in-person graduation ceremony. Graduation is tentatively scheduled for June 7th at 2:00 at the Broward Performing Arts Center. As of now, only 30 of you have purchased your Cap & Gown. There will be a price increase on March 1st so I recommend you get this ordered ASAP as you will not be able to participate if you do not have the official graduation attire.

Let’s get through the rest of this week, because then we get rewarded with a 3-day weekend! 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.
