Dear Atkinson Community:
It is with mixed emotions that I am writing to inform you of my transition to the role of principal of Roseway Heights Middle School. It has been an honor to serve the students, families, and educators of Atkinson.
The process for selecting a new principal will begin immediately. The first step will be a community meeting on Monday, Aug. 12 from 5-6:30 p.m. in the Atkinson library. Dr. Corey Seymour, the Area Senior Director for Atkinson, will facilitate the meeting. You are encouraged to share the desired characteristics for the next principal, and Dr. Seymour will also discuss interview committee opportunities and offer details of the hiring protocol and process.
The information from the input session will be used throughout the process and will be shared with the selected candidate to give that person a sense of the community’s priorities and values.
If you are not able to attend the meeting on Monday, you can share your input through this survey. Furthermore, if you would like to be considered for a spot on the principal selection committee, please fill out this nomination form to apply. If you have any difficulty accessing the survey or nomination form, or if you any questions, please reach out to Debbie Mabe at email@example.com.

With parent-teacher conferences just around the corner, it is important to know that PPS offers free interpretation services and other resources for our linguistically diverse families. If you need an interpreter for the conferences, which will be held Nov. 25-26, let your school know.
School level data for the Successful Schools Survey is now available. The survey, which was conducted during the 2018-19 school year, is part of the district’s initiative to use data to make informed decisions about school climate and culture.
