ATLAS Students are Making One Final Push to Conquer the STAAR Test

This week our students will be taking the STAAR tests. Today, our 8th graders are not testing, however, they are making one last push to excel on the STAAR test. Stations have been set up to help students work on standards in science and social studies. Our 8th graders are taking full advantage of this extra effort. Good Luck on Testing!

Nurse Appreciation Week

Thank you to Mrs. Blankenstein for all that you do for our campus. Mrs.Blankenstein speared up the Health and Wellness Fair, our fitness initiative on campus and monitors and assists our TMS students daily. Thank you Mrs. Blankenstein!


Each ATLAS grade level will be going on field trips in the near future. Our 6th graders will be travelling to the Perot Science Museum, the Dallas Zoo, and Medieval Times. Our 7th graders will be completing a Road to Revolution Tour of Texas after a year long study of Texas History. Our 8th graders will be travelling to Washington DC after a year long study of American History. If you would like to make a contribution to one of these trips, please contact Mrs. Gibson at or call at 254-981-5899.
