TALENT SHOW

The Class of 2012 is sponsoring a Talent Show this Friday evening, November 11th, at 7:00 p.m. in the ACA Great Room.  Admission is $3 for adults and $1 for children & students.  Plan to come out and support our senior class!

 

PRACTICE ACT TEST 

ACA students in grades 10 – 12 are invited to take a practice ACT on Saturday, December 10 at 9:00 a.m. at ACA.  Huntington Learning Center will be giving the practice ACT, and will mail the scores to parents along with a letter evaluating their student’s results.  There is no charge for this, but students must sign up in the ACA office by December 5th so Huntington will know how many students to expect.  Call the school office if you have any questions.

 

GRANDPARENTS DAY

Our annual Grammar School Grandparents Day will be held on Wednesday, November 23.  The event will begin with refreshments at 9:30 a.m., followed by a program presented by our Grammar School students at 10:00 a.m.  Grandparents, “Grandfriends”, aunts, uncles, and parents are all welcome to attend.  Visits in the K4 – 5th grade classrooms will complete the morning.  School will be dismissed at noon that day for all ACA students.  There will not be any lunch served that day and After School Care will not be available.  Parents, please make plans now to have your student’s picked up at noon on November 23.  Part-time students can pick up the class schedule for Nov. 23 in the school office and it is also available HERE.

 

PABC SHIRTS

The Performing Arts Booster Club shirts are here!  If you joined the PABC this fall, please stop by the school office to pick up your shirt.  The shirts are white, so we would prefer not to send them home in your student’s backpack!

 

FOOD DRIVE

ACA is supporting Greenwood Christian Center in their Thanksgiving food distribution to needy families in the neighborhood of their church.  Beginning tomorrow, we will start collecting the following items for the food baskets:

Boxes of instant potatoes

Canned green beans

Canned corn

Canned sweet potatoes

Canned cranberry sauce

Canned gravy

Stuffing mix

Mac and cheese

Cake mix

Frosting

And any other items to help a family have a delicious Thanksgiving meal.  Food items should be taken to your student’s classroom or their House sponsor’s classroom.

And what Thanksgiving meal would be complete without a turkey? Each house and elementary class will have a designated “turkey fund” with which students will bring in either cash or checks payable to ACA.  All money for turkeys must be given to Miss Becki in the office.

Further information concerning points and prizes will be announced at a later date.  Donations of food or money for turkeys must be turned in by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, November 14th.  Thank you so much for your generous heart and willingness to help!

 

WHO DO YOU “GOODSEARCH” FOR?
