“Chamberlain is having an amazing cheer season. She is totally committed, never complains, and always does exactly what she needs to for herself and her team. She is always prepared, ready to cheer, and does everything with a big smile on her face! Chamberlain always jumps right in and shows how much she loves and cares for the Athens Academy Spartans! She is constantly showing spirit and cheering on the Spartans without hesitation. Chamberlain is kind, thoughtful, and always looking to improve herself at practices and games. We are so blessed to have Chamberlain as one of our Spartan Cheerleaders and are so proud of the improvements she has made so far!

Tillman Center Announcement:
Upper School Students are not allowed in the Tillman Center when Middle School Students are using it. Middle School finishes lunch at 11:55. Most of the time there are many Upper School Students either going in or lined up right at the door, waiting to get in before 11:55. PLEASE do not be on the ramp going down to the Tillman Center. Wait in Lampkin Plaza, go wash your hands and grab your lunch. Let’s give the Middle School Students room to leave! Thank you for your help with this!
Please wear your mask when you go into the Tillman Center and while you wait in line. You may take it off when you get to your seat to eat.
Tillman Center Snacks are now available everyday from 9:30-11:30.
The Tillman Center Staff has been so kind to extend the time for you to go in and get a snack. You may go in and sit at a table if you would like to do that too! They just ask that you are diligent about picking up your trash and cleaning the table when you leave. Please show them your appreciation by doing so!
