Welcome to Atwater Elementary School! At Atwater, our highly qualified teachers and paraprofessionals prepare students to meet the challenges of tomorrow by providing an educational responsive to each child's talent and abilities in a nurturing environment. Our innovative and energetic teachers and staff assist our students in developing the skills they will need to be life long learners.  Atwater is fortunate to have an active parent organization that supports our school community through direct classroom volunteering, parent and student social activities, artists-in-residence programs, parent forums and so much more. Atwater also offers an English Language Learner (ELL) program for students in need of ELL services.

Current News

The fall parent-teacher conferences days scheduled on October 9th and 10th conflict with the Shorewood Intermediate School Outdoor Education activities. The Outdoor Education dates were committed to in a contract three years ago and cannot be changed. Because of this, the fall parent-teacher conferences days will move from October 9 and 10 to October 16 and 17. If this change causes a conflict for families that planned travel on the 9 and 10 as a long weekend, please continue with your plans. Any absences that occur because of our error will not count against students. Please click the link above to see a complete version of the calendar.
Each Shorewood School District school has summer hours. Click the link above for more information.
