Campus Clean Up & Beautification Day

On Saturday, April 22, 2017 over 100 students, parents, staff and community members gathered at Atwater to celebrate Earth Day and volunteered to make our campus a cleaner, "greener," more beautiful place for our students.

“Language Connects Us All.”

In recognition of April as National Bilingual/Multilingual Learner Advocacy Month, we invite you to view a captivating video that was produced by the Multilingual and Multicultural Education Department and Arts Education Branch, entitled “Language Connects Us All.”  This video showcases how our students are using their home and newly acquired language to increase their understanding of others.

Dear Parents/Guardians:

This year we will present a series of 5 parent workshops designed to provide parents and guardians with valuable information and tools to support their child’s learning from home.  In an effort to increase participation in these very important workshops we have launched a parent workshop campaign.  Every student whose family member attends 3 or more of the 5 workshops will be rewarded with a prize at the end of the year.  Our THIRD workshop will be on Friday, April 28th at 8:30 am in the parent center and will focus on the What is a S.T.E.A.M. curriculum?.  We hope to see you there.  If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call us here at the school.

School attendance is vital to students' achievement.  Students who develop patterns of good attendance are much more likely to be successful both academically and socially.  When students attend school they get better grades and score better on standardized test.  It is our responsibility to teach students the importance of attendance now so they are prepared for the future.  Parents and guardians are responsible for ensuring that their children attend school daily.  When parents are at work, students should be safe at school. Thank you all for improving this year.  We look forward to greater improvements in the future. Remember: ATTENDANCE MATTERS!

What is STEAM?


STEAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.  At Atwater Avenue School, this means the integration of these subjects through Collaboration, Cooperation and Communication with the goal of preparing all students for the challenges of the 21st Century.  Every job of the future, even those that you wouldn't expect, will require at least some basic STEAM skills--skills that are transferable and needed in every job sector.  Our students are problem solvers, innovators, inventors, and critical thinkers.  They engage in socially conscious Project-Based learning opportunities, in matters that are inquiry-based, hands-on and that more closely align with what students will experience in college and the workforce. STEAM education provides the foundation for every child to be successful in college, work, and life.
