Happy New Year 2014!




Happy New Year to all our soaring eagles!! We are looking forward to January 6th when we return from Winter Break!

Just before our vacation we received exciting news! Atlantic West Elementary is now a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Museum Magnet School.

Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) is being awarded an $11.9 million federal grant to create and expand six elementary magnet schools that will specialize in STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The three-year Magnet Schools Assistance Grant, awarded from the U.S. Department of Education, will be used to expand choice options for students, increase student achievement, and prepare students for jobs and careers in these fields. 

“This competitive grant will ensure that our students receive a high-quality education that prepares them at an earlier age to meet the challenges of our global economy,” said Broward Schools Superintendent Robert W. Runcie. “This grant will help schools provide our students with a world-class education.”

Six elementary schools including Atlantic West Elementary were named in this grant. Come to our Magnet Showcase on January 28th at 6:30 to find out more!

On December 17th our fifth graders became DARE graduates. They have been working with our School Resource Officer, Officer Williams, to learn skills and strategies for peer pressure, problem solving, social skills, choices, and resistance to drugs and alcohol. DARE stands for Drug Abuse and Resistance Education. The mission of the DARE program is teaching students good decision-making skills to help them lead safe and healthy lives.

We are looking forward to a great 2014!

School's Dress Code

Our School Dress Code

School uniforms are voluntary.


Benefits of a Uniform Policy

Research suggests that school uniforms

  • Improve discipline, self-esteem and self-respect.
  • Focus the student towards learning.
  • Eliminate the fear of whether their clothing choice will be acceptable by peers.
  • Strengthens school pride.
  • Identify student population from strangers on school grounds.
  • Cost effective.


It is suggested that children should start wearing their school uniform on the very first day of school this August.  Please call us at school if you have any questions or concerns.

Over 200 families voted yes for mandatory uniforms and 52 voted no. A 66% vote of yes is needed to make school uniforms mandatory. Since so many families were in favor of uniforms, the School Advisory Council voted to make uniforms voluntary for all students.

Our colors are green, white, or blue tops (a patch or logo is not necessary) and khaki, black, or navy blue bottoms (shorts, slacks, skirts, or skorts).
