From the Superintendent of Schools

Greetings! Besides the wacky weather we've recently had, our students and staff have been focused on continuing down the path of academic excellence! March is a month full of concerts, meetings, and topped off with our Spring Recess! We have a whole lot going on in our district, from Read Across America to school pictures to even our very own school musical!! As always, thank you for the support you continuously provide to our children and our schools!

Atco School News:

In addition to the various academic skills that are taught everyday in a K-1 setting, Atco Elementary had several fun events planned during the month of February. To begin, the students participated in the Bucket Filler Jamboree. Parents were invited to partake in the festivities as the students engaged in various activities. The students celebrated the 100th- Day-of-School on February 18th. The kindergarten students had a red-carpet event to display 100 items, while the first-grade participants dressed as if they were 100 years old. The final week of February concluded with a 'Jump Rope for Heart' fundraiser, which helped to spread the message of the American Heart Association and raised funds for heart research. Atco Elementary is committed to providing a balanced educational setting that develops a child’s academic and social/emotional needs.

TR School News:

  • TR celebrated Black History Month with a collection of different activities. Our focus was to teach tolerance and understanding to our students so that they are able to become great citizens with an understanding of other cultures.

  • TR welcomed the “Seeing Eye Dogs” to school and learned another lesson in tolerance. Children learned the "ins and outs" of how the dogs are trained, the responsibilities the dogs have, and how the dogs work with the blind to provide assistance.

  • The 'Cat in the Hat' visited TR a little early this year to celebrate Read Across America. Our students were excited and the Cat brought smiles to the faces of our students.
