TALENT SHOW THIS FRIDAY

This Friday, April 17th, is the Senior Sponsored Talent Show.  The doors open at 6:30 and the show begins at 7:00 p.m.  Over 20 talent acts are scheduled and the audience will get to vote for the best acts.  Admission is $2 for ACA students and $3 for non-ACA students and adults.  There are no tickets… this is a “pay at the door” event, so get here early because seating is limited! Concessions will be available including hot dogs, pizza, soda, and sweets!  This is always one of the most fun nights of the year - don’t miss it!



MRS. MILLER’S RETIREMENT OPEN HOUSE

When the vision for Augustine Christian Academy began to materialize in 1997, the first teacher to join Judith Stewart and Kirk Post in launching their new endeavor was Lorretta Miller.  She brought to ACA her enthusiasm, organizational skills, creativity, and love for the Lord and His little ones - especially those in junior high.  Through every phase of our growth, she has worked to make ACA successful and to encourage everyone else.  She and her husband, Ron, could be seen at every school event doing anything and everything needed to make ACA shine and bring glory to the Lord.

Now Lorretta has decided that it is time to retire from this work to spend time enjoying her grandchildren and serving, giving, and loving in a new place - Michigan.

This Sunday, April 19, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., in the ACA Great Room, we will celebrate this amazing woman and thank her for her years of service to Augustine Christian Academy.  Please make plans to join us for refreshments, fellowship, and hugs!  A giving tree will be presented, and you are invited to help us send Lorretta off with cards, notes, and blessings.

We want to make sure we have enough refreshments, so please RSVP to Mr. John Ahrens at [email protected] or on the facebook event “Lorretta Miller Retirement Open House”.
