ATA CP Students Visit Wounded Warriors At SAMMC

Thank you for allowing your children to accompany us to San Antonio last week. They were engaging, inquisitive, humble, respectful – wonderful ambassadors to the ATA community, and I was proud to be in their company.   Yesterday, Meghan, Ela, Synclair, Nick, Conor and Annika toured the San Antonio Military Medical Center (SAMMC) facilities that help wounded warriors and their families.

The Rhythm of Gratitude

The theme of Global Citizenship is at the forefront of the CP curriculum this year and we recognize respectful, educated, active, kind, and grateful as necessary attributes in a global citizen.  We often begin our mornings by simply reflecting on things and people for which we are grateful. It sets a wonderful tone for the rest of the day.
