In celebration of Presidents' Day!   01/19/2017
On Wednesday, February 8th the Omni Team will be attending a President George Washington presentation at the Glenview Senior Center, which is located next door to Attea at the Park Center.  The President Washington impersonator will speak in character to our students while discussing his life story and his role as the First President of the United States. The Journey students and teachers will walk over to the Senior Center at 12:00A.M. for a 45 minute presentation by President Washington that will tie in nicely with our study of United States History. Thank you to the Glenview Senior Center for this wonderful invitation and the opportunity to enhance our learning!
Trimester Two   12/05/2016
Dear parents and guardians, 
Trimester two has officially started! OMNI teachers reblocked students for trimester two to meet the needs of all of our learners.  A reminder that students are starting the trimester with a clean slate.  Each student should strive for excellence in all things they do; including work competion, assessment preparation and appropriate classroom behavior. That being said, please continue to check your students' assignment notebooks, have conversations with them about their nightly responsibilities, and help them to organize their binders periodically. We appreciate all of your support at home and value the important role you play in ensuring the success of our OMNI students!
Thanks so much, 
The OMNI team
Author Visit - September, 23rd   09/12/2016

We’re excited to announce an upcoming visit by children’s author Liesl Shurtliff to Attea. Ms. Shurtliff will be discussing her inspiration and process in writing New York Times bestsellers Rump, Jack, and Red. Additionally, our sixth graders will have the opportunity to participate in an author-led writing workshop focusing on the narrative skill “Show, Don’t Tell”. Please know that books can be purchased in advance for the author to personally autograph.  Forms will be provided during our LA classes, or students may see Ms. Nekola in the LRC.  This is a wonderful opportunity for our students, and the visit wouldn’t have been possible without a generous donation from our P.T.A. The author visit will take place on Friday, September 23rd.

Below is a link to the Attea LRC home page for information about the author.
