Atkinson hosted a fifth-grade orientation for incoming students and their families prior to the start of the 2016-1017 school year.
The program, designed to welcome and introduce students to their school for the next two years, was hosted by administrators and faculty members. Sixth-grade peer leaders also took an active role at orientation, providing a tour of the school to their incoming counterparts and helping to answer any questions they had about the transition from elementary school. Principal Connie Velez also assured students and their families that the Atkinson team is always available to offer assistance and to put students in positions to succeed.
The orientation was an informative precursor to another exciting year for the district’s Class of 2024 and its families.
