Hello Parents,


This is Tom Childers contacting you from Antioch Elementary.  Support the Antioch PTO this Thursday for Spirit Night.

  1. Grab your family dinner from the QShack at Providence Promenade (10822 Providence Road) from 5-8 p.m. this Thursday, 11/12. Mention AES and our PTO will get 15% of sales! We have the choice of 4 family meals that all include a 1.5lbs of meat, medium cole slaw & baked beans, buns and a choice of dessert plus hushpuppies and sauces!

  1. Pop over to Local Scoop from 4-7PM on Thursday, 11/12 (5355 Ballantyne Commons Parkway) and spoil yourself with any of their sweet treats! Our PTO will receive 15% of sales mentioning Antioch Elementary School. Don’t want to wait? Use this link to order:


This week school will be closed on Wednesday in observance of Veteran's Day. Please remember to send your child to school with a water bottle.  If they forget, we will provide a water bottle at school.  The water fountains are closed but the refillable water stations will be available.


Antioch Elementary provides every student with access to IXL Learning. This resource is particularly helpful if the student utilizes the continuous diagnostic. This requires each student to login to IXL, click the diagnostic arena and complete the diagnostic. The diagnostic should take place each week and only takes approximately fifteen minutes. A current diagnostic score provides recommendations for your child that are appropriate for his or her current developmental level.

You may find these videos helpful as well.

I encourage parents to review this video to guide your understanding of your child's Istation reports. Thank you to Mrs. Sherri Barber for creating this useful tool.
