EARLY DISMISSAL & TEACHER TRAINING DAY

Next Friday, September 25, ACA will dismiss school (all grades) at 1:45 p.m.  Our teachers will be receiving training that afternoon about early intervention for “at risk” students.  All secondary classes will meet, but we will have an adjusted schedule (attached below).  If at all possible, parents should pick up their students by 2:00 p.m. Our extended day program will not begin until 3:45 p.m. as usual, so between 2:00 and 3:45 we will be showing a movie in the Great Room for students remaining after 2:00.  The extended day program will begin at 3:45 and families will be charged their normal fee for the time their students are here after 3:45 p.m.  



COLLEGE NIGHT

The very first Augustine College Night will be held this Friday evening, September 18th, from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm for our high school students and their parents.  We will be hosting representatives from five different area universities who will be informing us about all things related to college!  They will be giving us both public and private university perspectives.  We will hear about what should be done now, while still in high school, to be prepared for college.  We will also hear about college itself - campus activities, faith organizations, leadership opportunities, residential life, Greek life, intramurals, and of course, financial aid!  There will also be a time for Q & A after the representatives have shared; so plan to come and get helpful information and hand-outs, and get your questions answered!  This will be a wonderful new event for our Augustine families!  If you have any questions about College Night, please call Rochelle Collingsworth, our Guidance Counselor, at 918-832-4600 or email her at: [email protected]

 

SERVE-A-THON

If you have not yet done so, please have your students bring in their address labels or “opt out” forms this week.  Those should be turned in to their House Sponsor or classroom teacher.  Letters have to be sent out next week so that potential donors receive them prior to our Serve-A-Thon on October 2nd.  Thank you so much for your help with this!

 

ART FEES ARE DUE

We charge an Art Fee for each student taking an Art class at ACA.  Our Art teacher, Mrs. Thornhill, has found that it is much easier and cheaper for her to shop for the art supplies and purchase them in bulk, than for parents to run all over town searching for supplies.  All Grammar School students are in Art and the fee is $10 per student.  For students in grades 6 - 8 taking Art, the fee is $30; and for students in grades 9 - 12 the Art fee is $35.  Please pay your art fees in the school office by September 18th.



OCTOBER LUNCH MENU

The monthly order form for October is attached below. Please note that it includes Sept. 28 - 30 on the order form!  If you are ordering for the month, please turn in your order form and payment by Friday, Sept. 25th.

ALSO NOTE that the prices for Chick-fil-A will be reduced beginning September 28th.  We are changing from the Promenade Mall store to the Southroads store and they are offering us lower prices!  



FOOD, FELLOWSHIP & FUNding

Thursday evening, October 1st, is Augustine Christian Academy night at the Panera Bread, 5601 E 41st Street, between the hours of 4:00 & 8:00 p.m.  Print off the Panera flyer attached below and join us for some delicious food and ACA fellowship.  Panera will donate a percentage of its sales during our event hours back to ACA and the percentage is based on how many flyers are turned in when ordering.  (Flyers cannot be handed out within 50 feet of the restaurant.)  Mark it on your calendar and meet us there for dinner!



EXPLORE TEST

Next Wednesday, September 23, we will be giving the Explore Test to all of our 8th graders and 9th graders new to ACA.  The test will begin at 8:00 a.m. and part-time students should come at that time for the test, even if they are not ordinarily here at that time or on that day.  This is the test that we use to determine 8th grade reading proficiency for the driver’s permit test.



“PETER PAN” DVD’S ARE HERE!

The long-awaited dvd’s of the ACA production of Disney’s “Peter Pan” are here!  If you ordered a dvd, you can stop by the school office to pay and pick up your dvd.  The cost is $20 each and checks can be made payable to ACA.



ACA OFFICE HOURS

Our regular office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day that school is in session. If you need to reach someone outside of office hours, please email [email protected] .
