~ We are collecting Box Tops and Coke rewards to get school supplies and educational materials. We have already received a check from Box Tops for $46 and a Flip Video Camera from Coke Rewards. To learn more about how to help us earn more, contact the school office.
~ 2013 Calendars are currently being produced by the Digital Photography Club students and will be available to purchase in December for $10 from the school office. Get your copy before we run out.
~The school library has decided to replace our VHS movies with DVDs. We are asking for your help through DVD donations to help us build our collection. Movies based on books can be a great tool to get kids of all ages excited about reading. Whether you read the book and then see the movie or vice versa, seeing a story come to life in a movie motivates kids to read. Please help us by donating DVDs to our school library. We use the movies for educational purposes and to help foster comprehension of the stories they are reading.
Order Scholastic Books through our school and help us get new books for our school library. Visit the school office and get your order forms. Ask us how you can order your books online and help us even more.

Revitalization Campaign 2010-2011 School Year

Atkinson Youth Services School launched a revitalization campaign beginning May of 2010 and will be continuing our efforts throughout the 2010-2011 school year. The goal of this campaign is to revitalize, renew, and reconnect to enhance the success of our program. We have worked with a number of community organizations rebuilding and restructuring our campus and services. To enrich our program we have added new curriculum, updated the computer lab, restored the library, and infused a healthy eating/healthy living vision with the start of a new student created fruit and vegetable garden. We have comfortable classrooms enabling us to accommodate the learning needs of students in a serene park-like setting. The aesthetics of our classrooms allow for teachers to reorganize the structure and adapt to students needs.


We look forward to more parent and community support to continue our growth and progress throughout the school year.
