ALL SCHOOL CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION

This Friday, December 2, is our annual Christmas Celebration with all of our students, families, teachers, and staff.  This event will be held at Will Rogers United Methodist Church at 11th and Yale in Tulsa and will begin at 7:00 p.m.  Come early to get a good seat!  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.  An anonymous donor has offered to match the offering taken on Friday, up to $3500.  Last year’s offering was a great blessing to our teachers and such a joy to share with them at Christmas time.  If you are not able to participate in the Friday night offering, you may bring your offering to the school office by December 9th

 

ALL SCHOOL POTLUCK LUNCH

As a celebration for the amount of food and turkey money that was donated before Thanksgiving, we will be having an all school Pot Luck Lunch on Friday, December 9th.  The 4th/5th graders and the Dragon House students do not have to bring anything since they donated the most food for the food drive.  All other students/families should bring a lunch dish with enough to share.  Salads, casseroles, sandwiches, vegetables, and desserts are all welcome, but everything should be brought in a disposable container (so good dishes, crock pots, pans, etc. don’t get left at school!).  Please call the office if you have any questions, 918-832-4600.

 

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.

 

FINAL EXAMS & END OF SEMESTER

Final exams for the first semester will be Wednesday – Friday, December 14 – 16.  You can get a schedule of exams HERE or in the school office.  PLEASE NOTE: School will be dismissed early on all three days for ALL GRADES.  On Friday, December 16, school will dismiss at noon and there will not be any lunch or after school care available.  All make-up work for the second quarter must be done by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 15.  The school office will close at 12:30 on December 16 for Christmas break and will re-open on January 2.

 

WINTER WEATHER

It’s getting to be that time of year when snow and ice could hit the Tulsa area.  We announce our school closing information on the local TV and radio stations, but keep in mind that if Tulsa Public Schools are closed for bad weather, Augustine Christian Academy will be closed as well.
