The ATS Directory is an indispensable tool for keeping the lines of communication open among parents, faculty, teachers, and staff, as well as among the families from across all parts of Arlington who make up the ATS community. For convenience, many families order multiple copies (e.g., for home, office and the car) to ensure that it is never far from reach.
In the interest of expediting the compilation of this year’s Directory, kindly complete the ATS Directory form (.pdf) and return it via backpack mail to “ATS PTA – Directory c/o Inga Schoenbrun” no later than Friday, September 16. Please return your family’s form promptly, so that we can publish and distribute the Directory in a timely manner.
Note that, in response to parental feedback, we are keeping notices about the ATS Directory down to a minimum, so please take this opportunity to inform us about whether or not we can include your family’s contact information in the Directory’s family index.
If you have any questions (or need extra copies of the form), please contact Inga Schoenbrun, ATS Directory Editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (703) 525-9787.
2011-12 Handbook (.pdf)
Each June, ATS publishes its literary magazine, the Page & Pen. Students submit stories, poems, and accompanying artwork they produce in class.
The Printed Page is the ATS monthly newsletter, sponsored by the PTA and edited and produced by volunteer parents. Each edition usually is issued the second Friday of every month and included in the students' Friday Folders. Ideas for articles and pictures are welcome.
Each June, ATS publishes a yearbook. As in previous years, the entire yearbook will be in color and processed digitally.
Get a good photo at an ATS event?
Keep us in mind when you're checking out your photos after any of the ATS events. We welcome any school candid pictures in digital format. Please provide students' names and grade level as well as event name with the photos. Send individual photos to email@example.com or send a CD of photos to school in an envelope marked "ATS Yearbook."
Please, no team sports photos--and no prints.
