TEACHER FOLLIES & BOARD OF GOVERNORS CHALLENGE

Dear ACA Family & Friends,

The Board of Governors at Augustine Christian Academy would like to extend an invitation to all ACA families and friends for an evening of fun, fellowship and song that we are calling our Teacher Follies. Trust me when I say you will not want to miss this event! Our teachers and staff have chosen this year to give back through an expression of their gifts and talents so that you can relax and enjoy an evening of fun entertainment. We will close our evening with a time of refreshments & fellowship together.

We will also take this opportunity to honor our teachers and staff by taking an offering for their annual Christmas Bonus. The Board of Governors is extending a matching challenge this year in the amount of $5,500. Let’s help make this a very special year for those who faithfully serve the students and families of Augustine Christian Academy.

Thanks,


Mike Rieck - Chairman, Board of Governors

Students must wear their High Convocation uniforms. Parents are welcome to attend! To allow our guest additional time, there will be a slight adjustment to the class schedule – you will find the schedule attached below.

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!
