FACULTY FOLLIES

This Friday, November 20th, our staff and faculty will show a side of themselves rarely seen in the normal course of their ACA responsibilities. You will laugh, cheer, and maybe even cry (for one reason or another) during this fun filled evening of music, merriment, and majesty as we worship and play together with our ACA family and friends.

 

Come join us next Friday, November 20th, from 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. at Highland Park Christian Church, 5708 E. 31st Street, Tulsa.  PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A CHANGE OF LOCATIONS!  Highland Park Christian Church is just around the corner… on the south side of 31st St. between Sheridan and Yale.   This evening is our time to honor and show our thanks to the staff and teachers by taking an offering for their annual Christmas Bonus. They, in turn, will be showing you their thanks by giving back with their “non-teaching” talents.  The evening will end with a time of refreshments and fellowship together.  This will be a very special night that you will not want to miss!  See you there!



“THE SOUND OF MUSIC”

Congratulations to the cast & crew of “The Sound of Music” for your outstanding performances this past weekend!  To Mrs. Post, Mrs. Redden, Mrs. Geppelt, & Miss White - Thanks so much for the hours you put into working with cast & crew!  Thanks also go to the parent volunteers for their work (we couldn’t do it without you!) and to Margaret’s German Restaurant (at The Farm shopping center) for giving us a great deal on the food for the cast party!



PARENTS, JUST FYI…

On Friday, November 20th, one of our alumni, Nick Conroy, will be bringing his ORU film class to our campus. They are working on a class project and have asked permission to use ACA as their “set.”  We wanted to make sure you knew ahead of time as you will likely see students roaming around with cameras as you arrive to pick up your children that day.  We thought you should be informed that these are not the media, but merely a fun group of film students working on Nick’s class project.



SALT & LIGHT CHAPEL

On Monday, November 30th, our Salt & Light chapel guest will be Joel Wiland, former student of Mr. Post and the owner of J. David Jewelry.  Joel will be sharing his life journey and sharing about how to serve the Lord with integrity in the business world.  Secondary students must wear their High Convocation uniforms on November 30th.  



DECEMBER LUNCH ORDER FORMS

Attached below is the monthly lunch order form for December.  Please note: the December order begins with November 30th.  This form is for your convenience.  Students may still order each morning at the office window or in their first hour class.  If you are ordering for the month, please turn in your order and payment by Tuesday, November 24th.

 

 

SPIRIT WEAR SHIRTS

Attached below you will find an order form for an ACA t-shirt.  It isn’t a House shirt or a Grammar School shirt… it’s an Augustine Christian Academy shirt!  They are available in youth and adult sizes (including XL sizes) and they would make GREAT Christmas gifts!  Order forms and payment are due in the office by November 23rd.



SCHOOLWAY

Just a reminder to download the SchoolWay App to your phone before winter weather begins!  We do announce our school closings on the local TV stations, but an alert that comes right to your phone is so much better!  See the flyer attached below for more information.



DO YOU SHOP ONLINE?

Black Friday is almost here!  Do you shop online for Christmas?  If you shop at Amazon, consider registering at smile.amazon.com and donating to ACA as you shop.  Amazon Smiles will donate 1% of your purchase total back to your chosen charity… and we’d love you to chose Augustine Christian Academy as your charity!



SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS

We are looking for a few more substitute teachers to add to our “call list”.  If you, or someone you know, would like to be one of our substitute teachers, please stop by the office and pick up the application and other paperwork.



CARRY THE LIGHT DONATIONS

We are in the process of sending out donation receipts to all those who gave to our Carry the Light student fundraiser.  If your family would like to personally thank those who supported your student, please contact Mr. Ahrens at [email protected] and he can send you a list of those donors.
