Welcome to Atlas Elementary School. It is a privilege to serve you and your children.
The faculty of Atlas is dedicated to providing a school
environment that is educationally sound and socially responsible for all
students. Using best practices in instruction, highly trained teachers guide
students through state of the art curriculum with lessons that are rigorous and
relevant. Students take responsibility for their learning while practicing good
character and citizenship. We believe
that for education to be effective, it must promote positive attitudes and be
founded on secure mastery of basic skills and challenges for all learners.
Our Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports system empowers
and enables students to make good choices and be recognized for those
choices. Our staff works well as a team
to provide students with an enriched quality education. Our focus is on the students and families. We strive to help each individual student set
and accomplish his/her academic and social goals.
Show your children you care about education. Speak about school
and learning with respect and enthusiasm. Make reading a family matter. Read to
your young children, and read along with your older ones. Take an interest in
your child’s thinking. Ask for their input during family discussions. Support
teachers by encouraging your children to respect and work with their teachers.
Monitor your children’s schoolwork. When they are succeeding, share your pride.
If they aren’t, help them discover why they are not.
Education takes place over a lifetime. Parent involvement and
support can do so much to ensure student engagement and success along the way.
