Guest speakers included: Spectrum News Meteorologist Vanessa Richards, United States Air Force Takeya Williams, CPS and Government Case worker Heather Douglass, and School Resource Officer and Detective Tina Black. Following the discussion Atoms enjoyed an evening of jewelry making, dance battles, open gym and a movie room.

Musical Classics performed at Atom's Spring Concert
Thursday, June 6, 2019—The gym was filled with the sound of music ranging from vocal to instrumental, as Atoms celebrated a night of the fine arts. A favorite event amongst families, the spring concert and art show highlight art related events the Atoms have been working on throughout the year. This year's theme was the American Musical Theater, and it included compilations of many recognizable pieces. The concert finale was a tune from a musical classic, 'So Long, Farewell,' from Roger and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music. Our young and talented Atoms performed this number in both German and French. Following the performances families walked through rows of student artwork, posed in the photo booth, created a picture on the large mural and also wrote fan letters. Thank you to all who helped make this such a special night.
