We Are Atholton!

Dear Atholton Families,

The second week of school marks the beginning of acclimating to the school routine for students, teachers, and parents. I have had the opportunity to visit many classrooms this past week and have been impressed with the quality of teaching and learning taking place.

This second week of school ended with our school winning the Ravens Rise High School Showdown Game of the Week. Thank you to everyone in our community who voted – it worked! Given that our first Friday night game last week was moved to Saturday morning due to weather, the game this past Friday served as our first official night game. Ravens cheerleaders and Poe, the Ravens mascot, were welcomed guests to our big game against Reservoir. The game proved to be a thrilling nail-biter as our team trailed 7-21 in the fourth quarter. However, in true Raider Nation fashion, our team tied and then took the lead in overtime! As the Raiders stopped the Gators from scoring the two point conversion, the field was rushed by the student body. It was truly an exhilarating experience! Please view photos from the game here.

This week also marked the new AHS tradition of Senior Kickoff. Seniors rotated through sessions with Student Services and the administration. Seniors had an opportunity to hear from me and express their thoughts on the year thus far and what lies ahead. The day finished with a catered lunch and some line dancing in the cafeteria .

Lastly, if you haven’t had the opportunity to join our PTSA, please click here to join. You may also join our many Boosters groups by clicking on the links at the bottom of this newsletter.

Stay tuned as I am thrilled to be able to share some fantastic news with you later this week!

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.
