WINTER COURT DAY

Winter Court is a special annual event for ACA high school students designed to celebrate being part of the Kingdom of Christ and our unique relationship with each other as brothers and sisters in the Lord. The traditions of Winter Court are designed to remind us of our position in grace. Seniors are inducted into the New Order of Augustine and a King & Queen of Winter Court are crowned. Winter Court will be this Friday, February 7th, in the Banquet Hall at Woodlake Assembly of God Church.

Photography will be offered at Winter Court by Sweeter Still Photography, for those desiring a portrait of themselves, sibling groups, student & their date, etc. Portraits must be prepaid – please see the order form attached below.

School will dismiss at noon on February 7th (all grades) and there will be no lunch and no after school care. Please see the secondary half day schedule attached below.

JR. HIGH SCIENCE FIELD TRIP

The College of Engineering and Natural Sciences at the University of Tulsa is hosting a Middle School Open House on Thursday, February 20, 2014. The departments and organizations in the College will have experiments and demonstrations aimed at interesting middle school students in careers in engineering and science.

We would like to encourage ALL our junior high students to attend, regardless if they have class on Thursdays or not. We will meet in the Great Room at 12:50pm to load the bus for our 1:00pm departure. The students will miss all of 3rd hour and will return to the school by 3:00. Regular school dress code will be in effect.

Permission slips have been sent home with students, but if your student did not get one they should ask Mrs. Morgan or Miss Rogers for one. Students should return their permission slips to Mrs. Morgan or Miss Rogers by Wednesday, February 19, along with the $3 transportation fee.

We would like to have a few more adults accompanying us on this field trip, so if you would like to volunteer, or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mrs. Morgan at (918) 638-7799.

HELP WANTED!

Calling all Type-A or Marketing Type individuals. Our Spring Fundraiser is getting closer and we need to enlist a team of recruits to canvas restaurants, golf courses, and other businesses for door prizes. Dinners for two or gift cards from any type of retail or service organization are great door prize ideas. Tickets for shows or movies would also be a great idea. On Saturday, April 5th, we will be hosting a Trivia Night at the Skyline 60, located on the 60th floor of the Cityplex Towers. We want the evening to be as exciting as possible, hence the need for door prizes. Next time you go out to eat or out on the town, consider asking: “Would you be willing to make a contribution to our school’s Spring Fundraiser?” Donation receipts will be available for all contributions. More event details to follow soon. Please contact John Ahrens with questions: 918-832-4600 or [email protected] .

PABC CHOCOLATE BAR SALES

The Performing Arts Booster Club fundraiser is underway! Each PABC family is asked to sell at least one box of 60 candy bars. If your student was in “It’s a Wonderful Life” or is in “Schoolhouse Rock”, you are a PABC family! Boxes may be checked out from the office anytime.

Each box of 60 candy bars is a variety box containing five different types of chocolate bars and each one sells for only $1.00. There are prizes for the top sellers and your family may check out more than one box. Proceeds are due back to the school office by Friday, February 21. When returning payment for the chocolate bars, please bring a check to the school instead of cash!

If you have any questions, please call Kathryn Lockhart at 918-812-2733.
