AHS United Against Bullying
October is National Bullying Prevention month. This campaign unites communities around the globe to educate and raise awareness of bullying prevention. Under the direction of the Teen Leadership Coalition, Atkins High School faculty and students joined together to unite against bullying. Posters were displayed in the hallways, and a power point was presented in each enrichment class. Additional events included an anti-bullying video “Love Without Limits,” Above the Line/Below the Line activity, and reading/discussing online articles from students who had been bullied. Enrichment classes joined together to make a friendship chain, and each part of the chain was linked to another. The culmination of the campaign took place on Unity Day, October 25th. Students and staff assembled on the football field and came together to send one large message of support, hope, and unity to show that we are together against bullying and united for kindness, acceptance and inclusion. It’s important for students to know they are not alone and that they have the right to feel safe. By joining together on Unity Day, we were able to send a unified message that we care about a student’s physical and emotional health and that bullying is unacceptable in our society.

READ TO SUCCEED
You already know how important it is for students to read. So does AHS!! That’s why we have been promoting “Silent Sustained Reading” during our Advisory Classes. Students may check out books in the AHS Library and their Classroom Libraries. “R.I.S.E” Arkansas encourages a culture of reading throughout the state, bringing together community partners, parents, and teachers to help students become lifelong readers. Please help encourage your children to read and support our reading initiative for the students to READ to SUCCEED!! Thank you!
AHS students are encouraged by our student recognition/incentive program that is based on the acronym of “PRIDE”. Students receive “Red Devil Pride Points” for behaviors that represent these attributes and are recognized.
Atkins High School is proud to be participating in the Arkansas Advanced Initiative for Math and Science (AAIMS) program that has proven in the past 8 years that students have increased their qualifying AP scores for college credit. Arkansas currently ranks 4th in the US in percent increase of student receiving qualifying scores. Also, Arkansas is 3rd in the US in percent increase of students taking classes and receiving qualifying scores. Please help our Atkins High School Faculty with encouraging your child to enroll in our AP classes. We offer AP classes in Math, English, Science, and Social Studies.
