Welcome to Atlantic Avenue Elementary

Message from the Principal, Mr. Ormsby

Can you believe that we are already into November.  Time flies when you are having fun.  October was a great month for us here at the elementary schools.  We focused on RESPECT and had many activities for all of the students: PTG sponsored the "Bullysaurus" assembly, Mr. Baals organized a cyber bullying assembly, we had dress up days and also adopt-a-cop classroom visits.  All of this took place to ensure proper education of what respect should look like.  
The students are all into their daily classroom routines.  The staff is implementing the Classworks program and the students individual learning paths. We hope to see the benefits of this program in the next round of MAP assessments, which will take place in January 2019. 
Many new and exciting items are being brought into the classrooms. We would like to thank Mrs. Gravener for implementing a STEM coding program into her curriculum.  The students are learning to code robots to move in different directions, make noises, change colors, etc.  The students are engaged and are enjoying this new curriculum. 
The Holidays are quickly approaching and the temperatures are changing. Please make sure your children are dressed for the weather.  The student council will be planning and looking forward to SPIRIT WEEK (Nov. 14-20).  Bring on November!
