Family Dinner

It was another wonderful event that brought our Atalaya families together. The dinner was superb, and the service was even better. The servers were adorable explaining what a tip would mean for the school’s iPad fund. Mr. Biedscheid once again did an awesome job! He always has so much fun when he gets to work with the kids and Atalaya families. According to the attendants at the last PTA meeting, “dinner was awesome…it was a lot of fun…the kids liked being servers.”

Both dinner times had about an even amount of attendants. Everyone was in good spirits, and all were very patient with our new wait staff. Our lovely evening began with egg rolls and an Asian salad for appetizers, followed by orange chicken with a choice of noodles or two types of rice, and ended with jiggly green jello and fortune cookies. If you didn’t have a fortune in your cookie, as one parent pointed out, that must mean you are already very fortunate.

We have another family meal event coming up in a couple weeks at the Cowgirl Bar & Grill. Mention Atlalaya Elementary and a portion of the sales from your dinner goes to support your child’s school. Another night where you don’t have to worry about cooking and can help support your Atalaya Roadrunners! Who could ask for anything more?

6th Grade Camp Out with Principal Diaz!

Atalaya's sixth grade began a new classroom tradition this year - a camp out with Principal Diaz at Ghost Ranch! Fifteen sixth graders and their families joined Principal Diaz at Ghost Ranch for hiking, a museum tour, camp fire, and even a shaving cream fight! The Atalaya Elementary community is excited to carry on this activity in years to come as part of its Classroom Traditions Program! Thanks to all who pitched in to make it a great success!
