“IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE”

Tickets to “It’s A Wonderful Life – the musical” are on sale now! Based on the beloved 1946 film, this musical faithfully follows George Bailey’s life from his childhood dreams to his midlife disappointments and beyond, as we all take a journey to discover whether his life has mattered at all. Beautifully scored and theatrically staged, this adaptation breathes musical life into a familiar story, while retaining the warmth and humor of the original. A new holiday classic for devotees and newcomers alike. Dates of production are December 5th - 8th. Tickets are $10 for Adults and $7 for children/students. Invite your friends and family to see a quality, family musical. Don’t wait too long to get your tickets… the Friday evening performance is already sold out and the other performances will sell out too!

TEACHER FOLLIES

YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS! Be sure to mark your calendars for next Friday, November 22nd at 7:00 p.m. The ACA teachers and staff will express our thanks to the students and families of ACA in the form of a “Teacher Follies” at Woodlake Assembly of God church. This will be a wonderful evening of fun and frivolity showcasing the talents of our teachers and staff through songs, drama, & displays of their handiwork. We will also include a time of praise and worship during which the offering for the teachers’ Christmas bonus will be received. The Board of Governors will be offering a Matching Challenge to our parents and are asking for your full support. We will close the evening with a time of fellowship together in the banquet hall where some of our more artistic teachers will display their work. Cookies and punch will be provided. Our goal is to honor your generosity by providing you with the performance of a lifetime! Be sure to set aside the evening for a wonderful time of fun and fellowship (and cookies!) for all ages!

SET WORK DAY

Mr. Post needs several parent helpers this Saturday beginning at 9:00 a.m. to finish construction on the bridge for the set.

High school & college age young men are also welcome to help!

EAST COAST TRIP FUNDRAISER

ACA Juniors and Seniors going on the spring trip to the Eastern Seaboard are raising money with “Fun Pasta Fundraising”. They are excited to sell Fun Pasta because there is a large selection of products in fun shapes for everyone, and “online sales” earn even more profit for our group! But we need your help getting the word out…

Please forward this in an email and post on FACEBOOK encouraging all of your family and friends to order. With each online order placed on our group´s web page, 40% of the sale (excluding shipping) will go back to our group and help them achieve their fundraising goal for the trip! Visit the web site below… and remember that these products make great Christmas gifts!

Their fundraiser will end on 12/20/2013, so spread the word - and thank you so much for supporting the Junior/Senior East Coast Trip!

ATTENTION GRAMMAR SCHOOL PARENTS

PLEASE have your grammar school student bring a coat or jacket to school each day. Many students are not wearing jackets to school yet, because they are running quickly from their car to the school door and don’t feel like they need one… but when the students go out for recess later in the day for 20 to 30 minutes – they are COLD. Thanks so much for your help with this!

The monthly lunch order form for December is now available in the school office and it is also attached below. If you are ordering for the month, please turn in your order form and payment by Tuesday, November 26. Lunches may also be ordered each morning.
