Dear Parents,

We had an outstanding Pongal celebration last Sunday!! It was a fantastic show!!

We thank each and every one of our ATS volunteers, cultural coordinators, choreographers, coordinators, parents and participants for their outstanding support. Special thanks to the parents for coming and getting seated on time for the whole program. It was a full house with 1000+ audience. More than 280+ participants worked so hard and gave a visual treat for our eyes. We could not have done it without you!! Thank you all!

Our regular class session starts tomorrow. Since we missed the class last Sunday due to Pongal celebration, several class teachers are extending their class time 15 mins to 30 mins for the next few weeks. ATS is so proud to have such a great group of dedicated and committed teachers and associate teachers! We request you to provide your complete support and closely follow their instructions.

  • January 19 – Class 18
  • January 26 – Class 19
  • Feb 2 – Class 20 Test 5 (Portions from class 12 through 19)

With that, the second term ends. Term II report due.


ATS Pongal 2020

on January 7th, 2020 | Filed under School News

Dear Parents,

We wish you all a very Happy Pongal!

I am sure you are all waiting for our most popular annual Pongal cultural event.  Every year we bring this program to entertain and to educate our students about Pongal and our Tamil culture.  In addition, it provides an opportunity for our talented students and parents to showcase their talents in dancing, decorations and more.  This year we are much excited to bring the event with the theme of “இயற்கையைப் போற்றுவோம்”. 

Our students, parents, choreographers and our cultural team are working hard for a great show.  I invite you all to come with your family and enjoy the program.  I request you to talk to your children on Pongal, harvest, how it is related to sun, rain, nature and ways to take care of our Earth.  This will help our children to relate the event well, enjoy the program better and learn to appreciate our mother nature. 

ATS Pongal Celebration:
