UNIFORM “RECYCLING”

On Saturday, May 31, ACA will host our first Uniform Recycling Day. Start gathering, cleaning, and hanging all those uniform pieces that your student has outgrown because on May 31 you will have the opportunity to sell them to other ACA families. From 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on that day, you can sell uniform pieces and purchase new ones for your growing child. This would be a great time for Seniors to sell their blazers! Please see the information sheet attached below for instructions on selling your uniforms.

2014-2015 SCHOOL CALENDAR

A basic calendar for the 2014-2015 school year is attached below. It shows when school begins, school breaks, Israel Trip, New Life Ranch, etc. Not shown yet are the dates for the plays, PSAT, Little Theatres, etc. A more complete calendar will be available soon!

MISSING TEXTBOOKS

Parents, please take a look around your house and car for ACA textbooks! We have several students who did not turn in one or more of their books and if they are not returned by the beginning of June, we will have to invoice parents for the cost of replacing those books. Help us out by bringing any ACA books you find to the school office!

SUMMER OFFICE HOURS

The ACA office remains open during the summer! The hours are 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday – Friday. The office will be closed on Memorial Day, May 26, and Independence Day, July 4.

LOST & FOUND

Many items are still in our Lost & Found! Uniform items will be put on sale on our Uniform Recycling Day and the rest will be taken to Goodwill. If you think your child is missing a jacket, water bottle, lunch box, or clothing, please come and take a look in Lost & Found before it’s gone!

REME TESTING

There are two opportunities this summer for high school students to take the REME. The test will be offered on June 17 at 10:00 a.m. and on July 23 at 10:00 a.m. Call or email the school office to sign up your student. [email protected]
