Welcome to Atkins Elementary
We are located on the eastern side of the Benton Community School District in Atkins, Iowa. Our school serves the communities of Atkins, Newhall, and Norway and surrounding areas. We continue to have had great support for our District, Board and our PTA. Our building has had many new updates over the last few years including an Early Childhood addition which includes Preschool and Kindergarten classrooms, a new media area, and updates throughout all of our classrooms.
We have continued to update our curriculum and use of technology in all of our classrooms. Computer labs, mobile labs, IPADs, and Interactive Boards will continue to enhance our student’s academic experience. Our district also focuses on PBIS which includes being RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, CARING, and SAFE Bobcats. Our staff is very dedicated to ensuring success for your children both academically and socially.
Happy New Year! We are excited to be back in the swing of things and hope everyone had a great holiday. We are hitting the midpoint in the year. Our students will be completing some midyear testing over the next few weeks. It is a very important time that will give us some great information about your child and where our instructional focus needs to be. Please remind your child of the importance of putting their best effort forward.
Last week we spent some time reviewing PBIS expectations with our students, please ask them to discuss with you. We are looking forward to a great second half.
Also, reminder that Kindergarten and Preschool registration is coming up on March 6th from 4-6. Please call our office if you have any questions.
