7th Grade Students Build A Robot

Watch our movie to see how the 7th Grade Jigsaw X block students built their own Otto. These students using Arduino boards learned how to build circuits and work with Arduino code. As their final project, they built a robot.

Attea Book Swap


Attea Middle School is sponsoring its sixth annual Book Swap for all grade levels on June 1 and we need your help.  It's the perfect time for our students to load up on books to read over the summer.  With this in mind, students are encouraged to bring in gently used fiction or non-fiction middle school level books they no longer want or need.  Please bring them to Mrs. Horban (B304), Mrs. Felman (B305), the LRC, or the Office before May 31.

For each book brought in, the student will receive a ticket to use to swap for a different book they want to read on June 1.  For example, if a student brings in 3 books, they receive 3 tickets to exchange for 3 books to take home to read.  The Attea School-wide Book Swap will take place on June 1, 2017, in the cafeteria, during all three lunch periods and during all XBlocks. 

Health Forms Reminder: Incoming 6th Grade Students AND Sports

All incoming 6th Grade students require a State of Illinois health form as well as two immunizations: Tdap and MC4V (meningitis). Health Forms dated up to one year prior to the start of the school year are acceptable. 

Please remember to submit a sports physical if your child would like to try out for  a school team in the 2017-18 academic year. Sports physicals are valid for 395 days and are required for students who wish to participate in inter-scholastic sports.
