FOOD, FELLOWSHIP & FUNding

Our first of several Food, Fellowship and FUNdraising nights was a great success last week! For those who were able to make it, we packed out the Panera Bread at 41st and Hudson. It was a great time of fellowship and we well surpassed the 50 flyers needed to receive 20% of the proceeds from the ACA receipts. They are cutting ACA a check for over $200 since our ACA families and friends purchased in excess of $1000 worth of food and drinks.  Thank you so much for your participation!

We will be shooting for the 1st Thursday of each month and will announce the next location in the Charger and on FB and our website. We look forward to seeing you at the next event. It seems like our families kinda like hanging out together!  :)

PSAT TEST FOR JUNIORS

We are giving the PSAT/NMSQT to our 11th graders on Wednesday, October 14th.  Preparation booklets will be distributed to each 11th grader.  The PSAT is the qualifying test for the National Merit Scholarship Program.  Part-time students should plan to be here that morning to take the PSAT and all students must bring their own calculator for the math portion (phones are not allowed to be used).  Please contact the school office if you have any questions.



SET BUILDING DAYS

Mr. Rodgers and Mr. Jackson will be heading up the following set/prop building dates for cast parents and students (high school age!) who have either signed up or want to join the team.  The set building dates are this Saturday, Oct. 10th and Saturday, Oct. 24th.  We’ll work from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 or from 10:00 until 3:00, and just a reminder that volunteer hours are in blocks of 5 hours, so we ask that if you are working your volunteer hours, to work one of those two scheduled times.  ACA high school students who come to help will receive community service hours, but their time cannot count toward cast parents’ volunteer hours.



GRAMMAR SCHOOL EARLY DISMISSAL

Due to Grammar School teacher conferences next Wednesday, October 14th, the students in grades K4 - 5th will be dismissed at 11:30 a.m.  There will not be any after school care available for these students, so please make arrangements to pick up your child on time.  Thanks so much for your cooperation!
