DISNEY’S “PETER PAN” IS COMING!

ATTENTION ALL PARENTS OF STUDENTS IN GRADES 4 - 8:

The audition workshop for our spring Jr. High musical, Disney’s “Peter Pan”, is THIS SATURDAY!  ALL students grades 4 - 8 are encouraged to attend this complimentary workshop on January 10th in preparation of auditions.  The audition workshop will be 8:45 a.m. until 12:30 with a parent meeting at 12:30 p.m.  The workshop is free, but students must register so we can plan for lunch.  Registration forms are available in the school office and are attached below.  Students do not need to have previous theatre experience to participate!  Auditions for “Peter Pan” will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 13th, after school.



WINTER WEATHER POLICY

It is our understanding that an “Arctic Blast” is expected over the next day or two for the Greater Tulsa area. This will bring very cold temperatures in the morning hours, but does not appear to be a system that will carry precipitation to our area.

The Inclement Weather/Snow Day policy we will adopt for the season is as follows: ACA will be focused on the ability of our families to safely navigate the roads and our parking lot.  ACA will remain open unless specifically noted on the school closings list on Channels 2, 6, and 23 and their websites. We will close the school when warranted if snow or ice would cause unsafe traveling conditions for our families. Low temperatures alone may not result in our closing the school. We recognize that this is a deviation from years past when we were tied specifically to the Tulsa Public Schools winter weather closing decisions.

We know that we will not be able to please everyone when these hard decisions need to be made and we appreciate your understanding.  Because snow & ice accumulation often differs north of Tulsa & south of Tulsa, if you have a student driver, please use your own discretion as to whether or not you feel they should be out on the roads.



ALUMNI DAY

This Friday is Alumni Day at ACA!  Our alumni are invited back to visit and share what God is doing in their lives with our current students and staff.  This is always an exciting day with our alumni joining classes, presenting workshops, and worshipping with us in a special chapel time. The class schedule will be adjusted to allow time for the special events, so please see the schedule attached below for class times and more information.



ISRAEL TRIP MEETING

The next meeting for all those going on the trip to Israel will be held this Sunday, January 11, at 3:00 p.m. in ACA’s room 209.  Dr. Larry Ehrlich will be joining the meeting via Skype!



PSAT WORKSHOP

On Tuesday & Thursday, January 20 & 22, Mr. Timothy Moser will be coming to ACA to present his “Preparing for the PSAT Workshop”.  The workshop is open to 9th and 10th graders and students MUST sign up in advance. This workshop will be held in the mornings on those days and students attending will be excused from their classes.  Cost is $60 for 10th graders and $30 for 9th graders (to encourage them to start preparing early!).  To register your student for this workshop, please email Mrs. Collingsworth this week ([email protected]) then bring your payment to the school office by Monday, January 12th.



“SCHOOL HOUSE ROCK” DVD’S

DVD’s of the ACA production of “School House Rock” are now available for purchase in the school office.  The dvd costs $20.00 and checks should be made payable to Kenneth Jones.



THANK YOU!

Thanks so much for bringing in your Box Tops for Education!  We received a check for $74.60 this week from our most recent Box Tops submission.



VALENTINE STORE

Yes, that does say “Valentine Store” even though it is only early January…  If you were cleaning out trinkets, figurines, stuffed animals, and small gift items over the Christmas break, please consider bringing items in new or “like new” condition to the ACA office for the Performing Arts Booster Club’s Valentine Store.  Re-purpose those small items and help the PABC raise money for ACA’s musical productions!
