Fuel Up to Play 60 (FUTP60): Feb. 15th 3:15 - 4:30 PM
ABE participates in a nationwide program whose goal is to help kids get the recommending 60 minutes of physical activity 7 days per week. The kickoff event will be held after school on February 15th, 3:15-4:30 PM.
STEM Night, Feb. 28th 6-7:30 PM
We are looking to start an after-school Science Club but need volunteers to lead and help manage the participants. For this year, Shonna Woessner has agreed to spearhead the club providing she can have help after school. The club will take place the same days and times as after school enrichment starting after spring break and last 6 weeks.
If you are interested and would like to help get this program off the ground please contact Joy Carson.
Cultural Arts Day Will Celebrate Turkey
Turkey: It's an animal, it's a country - whose spelling is undergoing a change - and it's the topic for our Cultural Arts day this year!

If you would like to help plan this amazing day please contact Joy Carson.
School Advisory Council
Monthly meetings of the School Advisory Council (SAC) provide an overview of the various groups and programs that impact ABE, including information about student performance and school improvement plans.
Join us to review the state of the school at the first meeting of the year with updates from Mrs. Gallagher, the PTA, Friends of Atlantic Beach Elementary (FABE), and more. Regular meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month during the school year at 8 AM in the Media Center. The dates for the 2022-2023 school year are:
For more information about SAC or to get involved, contact the 2022-2023 SAC Board Chair, Lindy Mullen.
Volunteer of the Month: February
This February we are excited to celebrate our Volunteer of the Month, Sunny Wroten.
This Kindergarten mom has stepped up to volunteer at ABE in such amazing ways! She is a Homeroom Parent, Benevolence Chair, Grandparents Day Chair, Muffins with Mom Chair, and has already helped at many other events this year including Dolphin Fest and the Fall Bookfair. Sunny brings such a giving and warm attitude to all of her volunteer work at ABE, and we are so grateful to have her! Thank you, Sunny.
Donations from our Business Partners specifically assist programs that impact students directly, and without the continued partnership of Business Partners and PTA Members, these programs would not be possible.
If you know a local business interested in becoming a part of our Business Program, we want to know!
