ATC joins Fairview for Hour of Code and 4-star celebration

American Transmission Co. is a proud partner of Milwaukee Public Schools. We recently joined our Adopt-a-School program partners at Fairview School for an Hour of Code with students in grades K-8.

Employee volunteers provided classroom support as students used the Hour of Code activity tools to create code that powered animation applications, games and websites.

It was a special day at Fairview. After the Hour of Code, volunteers joined teachers and students in an all-school assembly. Principal Lisa Rosenberg announced that in the results of the latest School Report Card generated by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, Fairview is now rated as a four star, exceeds expectations school. ATC congratulates Fairview staff, teachers and students on attaining this incredible milestone.

After the announcement, Principal Rosenberg honored ATC employee Jennifer Bradley for her role in facilitating ATC’s support of STEM projects and the community partnership with the school.

“It was a surprise to be honored, especially during such a special moment for the school,” Bradley said. “I’m grateful to ATC for the opportunity to work with Fairview, and to my fellow employees who have volunteered along with me. I look forward to continuing our work with Fairview, it’s such a talented school. The students, teachers, parents and staff are amazing.”

Students then welcomed its cheerleaders and a special visitor, MPS Director Janelle Hawkins, who thanked the students for their hard work and reminded the students them to keep working hard to get smart.

It was a pleasure to participate in these special events and we at ATC look forward to future projects in our continued partnership with Fairview School.
