GRANDPARENTS DAY
Our annual Grammar School Grandparents Day was a HUGE success!  Thank you to Mrs. Deb Spencer and her crew of parents who worked so hard to put the refreshments  together!  A really big THANK YOU to the Bailey family who allowed us to share in the reunion of Commander Bailey, of the US Navy Reserve, with his grandson, Christopher, an ACA kindergartener.  Commander Bailey just returned from a year in Iraq and surprised Christopher today at the Grandparents Day program.  The surprise was covered by Channels 6, 8, and 23 as well as the Tulsa World, so watch the evening news if you missed it today!

LUNCH ORDERS
The November monthly lunch order only went through Thanksgiving, so the last three days of November will be on the new December lunch order form which is now available in the school office and by clicking HERE.  If you are ordering lunches for the month of December, please return your order and payment to the office by Monday, November 28.
 
ALL SCHOOL CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION
Please save the evening of Friday, December 2nd.  That’s the date of our annual Christmas Celebration with all of our students, families, teachers, and staff.  This event will again be held at Will Rogers United Methodist Church at 11th and Yale in Tulsa and will begin at 7:00 p.m.  You will not want to miss this evening filled with carols, fellowship, fun, and cookies!  Our teacher & staff appreciation offering will once again be taken that evening.  We have 32 dedicated staff members at ACA and Christmas bonuses are just not in the budget.  Last year’s offering was a great blessing to our teachers and such a joy to share with them at Christmas time.
 
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.

SCHOOL OFFICE CLOSED
The school office will be closed Thursday and Friday for Thanksgiving.  The faculty and staff of Augustine Christian Academy hopes that you and your family will have a very blessed Thanksgiving Day.
