Athey Notes

Week 19

Welcome to Week 19

Dear Athey Community,

We would like to thank the students from West Linn High School National Honor Society for coming to help with our Homework Club last week. Our students were super impressed with how helpful and patient the "big kids" were and they left quite an impression. Students are welcome to come to homework club any Tuesday or Thursday that they feel like they could use extra help or just need a quiet place to get work done. Great to keep in mind with Quarter 2 ending next week.

Middle School Musical has been occurring annually in our district for over 20 years. It brings together 7th and 8th graders from all middle schools in our district. Everyone is welcome and anyone who auditions receives a part. It is an incredible opportunity for students to get a chance to be onstage as well as make friends they can carry on into high school. This year they will be putting on The Little Mermaid as well as a character tea for the littles of our community. Rehearsals started last week and will continue until April. The shows are scheduled for April 13th - April 18th. We hope that if you have time you will mark your calendars and plan to attend this incredible event!
