Andrew Blaesing (Athens Academy Class of 2006) is developing an app for Middle and Upper School students designed to build financial literacy and make more informed decisions about college, managing student debt, etc. He is conducting a preliminary survey of students in grades 5-12 and would like to include Athens Academy in his research. The survey is anonymous and voluntary.
Honor Council Nominations
The student-led Honor Council is essential to the proper functioning of our honor system and the strength of our school community. In order to create an Honor Council that is representative of and has the support of the student body, the process for selecting candidates relies on nominations from the members of the class.
First thing on Monday, May 3, you received an emailed Honor Council nomination ballot for your class. Select up to 6 people who you believe possess honor, morality, and integrity, and who have the strength of character to uphold the honor code and act as role models, even in difficult circumstances.
Nominations will close at 4:00pm on Tuesday, May 4…..TODAY!
The election of the members of the Judiciary Board will take place next week.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT SMOOSH THE BERRIES FROM THE PLANTS OUTSIDE OF THE SCIENCE CLASSROOMS. THE BERRY JUICE STAINS THE PAVEMENT! ALSO, (EVEN THOUGH THIS SHOULD GO WITHOUT SAYING), DO NOT EAT THEM – FOR YOUR OWN HEALTH!

She has just been awesome in her running, her attitude, and her commitment to the team, I cannot say enough good things about Natalie! I look forward to her future in running!“ – Neville Anderson, Head Coach, Varsity Track & Field
“By all measures Tom has had a very successful season. He moved to three new events in the middle of the season to help the team fill holes for the championship season. It was team first for him. Whether he found the triple jump and the 300 hurdles or they found him, he has performed beyond expectations. Tom has a bright future in these events. I salute him on behalf of the entire track and field team.“ – Neville Anderson, Head Coach, Varsity Track & Field
