Atkinson RAISE Letter Pics

We had an amazing afternoon today with our final fire drill (Bravo, kids!...90 seconds to evacuate and account for everyone :) and we formed two more RAISE letters on the playground for a picture. Please ask your kids about the experience. It was an exercise in teamwork as we had to set up and shuffle our way around the playground while the fire department set their ladder truck over us for the best angle. Dr. Price and Mr. Gilligan were with us, along with a good number of North Andover's finest firefighters. Thanks to all who participated! Please see the pictures above.


K-2 Family Math Night

Atkinson's annual K-2 Family math night was on Wednesday, May 4 from 6-7pm in the cafeteria. Thanks to all who joined us for the hour filled with fun, hands-on math games and activities. Math+You=Fun


2016 Variety Show

What a show! Big thanks to the students and families for making this event such a success! Without the preparation and attention to detail, our audiences would have not had such a wonderful experience. There were dancers, singers, a guitar player, comedian, gymnasts, martial artists, pianists and actresses on stage who made us smile. It's a big risk for these youngsters. Every single student achieved through his/her effort and we are so proud of them for having the guts to stand in front of hundreds to perform. Staff and students are already counting the days until next year's show!

Celtics and Sal's Teaming Up at Atkinson

Please check out the pictures and video taken during our recent RAISE Assembly in the gym. The Celtics reached out to Atkinson for help with a public service announcement on texting and driving. A number of our 4th grade students came together write the script and to star in the filming of the PSA. The Celtics wrapped it all up with an unbelievable get-together with Avery Bradley, Sal Lupoli and Lucky, the Celtics mascot. Thanks to all involved!!  CELTICS "NO DREXTING" PSA


100th Day Service Project K-5

RAISE Reps organized another service drive to help local families. We collected non-perishable foods (hot chocolate, soup, salad dressing, tuna, cooking oil, pasta, sauce) and/or personal care items (toothpaste, shampoo, lotion, chapstick) for local families in need. Each grade level was challenged to collect 100 different things to donate to a local service organization and no surprise, each grade doubled their goal. In total, we collected almost 1200 items to donate to The People's Pantry and Lazarus House. Thank you all so much for your help with this! Our families always set such a great example of the value of SERVICE!
