  • Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year.  As Atkinson’s new principal I feel honored to engage in meaningful and engaging work with your students. “Atkinson is a welcoming community that CELEBRATES diversity, INSPIRES confidence, and EMPOWERS children to THRIVE."

    The Atkinson community has a strong history of helping children maximize their potential.  We are committed to engaging the whole child.  We value the relationships we build with parents and we hope to collaborate with you in empowering your child to optimize opportunities, love challenge, inquire and show curiosity, learn from mistakes and celebrate learning.  Whether you are dropping your child for the first day of kindergarten or you are a veteran Atkinson parent, the start of the school year is always filled with emotion and excitement.  We want all of our students to be happy, successful, and to thrive. We hope that you find the experiences at Atkinson enriching and rewarding.

    Thank you for trusting us with this great responsibility. It is truly an honor!

    Brenda Fox
