SENIOR SPONSORED DINNER & CARNIVAL

On Friday evening, September 23rd, our Senior Class will host a dinner and carnival in the ACA Great Room and parking lot.  What’s for dinner?  We will be serving a fried chicken meal with two sides of your choice and dessert!  The cost is only $6 per plate for families of 4 or less, and $5 per plate for families of 5 or more.  Please purchase your dinner tickets in advance in the school office, if possible.  (Beverages will be available for purchase.)  After your delicious dinner, you and your students can enjoy face painting, potato sack races, pie throwing (at the seniors!), a dunk tank (with several teachers!), Grailball games, and much, much more!  Game tickets will be 4 for $1 at the carnival.  COME AND ENJOY DINNER OR THE CARNIVAL - OR BOTH!  Funds raised will go toward the Senior Class activities during the year.



PICTURE DAY!

On Wednesday, September 28, photographer Jerry Palmer will be taking student portraits for the ACA yearbook.  PLEASE HAVE YOUR STUDENT WEAR A BLUE POLO SHIRT!  Part-time students should stop by before or after your class to have your picture taken (or at a time convenient for you if your student is not normally at school on Wednesday).  The photographer should be done by about 2:30ish.  If you want to make sure your student is included in their class photo, please check with Mrs. Ellis for the time of that photo.

We also want you to have the opportunity to purchase your child’s school portrait.  A price sheet for portrait packages is attached below.  A photo cd will be available, containing several poses of your child as well as a class photo. Photo cd’s come with permission to print as many photos as you like.  There are also a couple of portrait packages available and the option to purchase only your student’s class photo.

If you wish to order portraits, the order forms and payment are due to Ms. Becki, in the school office, by the morning of September 28th.  If you have any questions, you may contact Mrs. Ellis:  918-951-6241 or at [email protected] .

SALT & LIGHT CHAPEL

Secondary:

Monday, September 26, is our first Salt & Light chapel and our guest will be Community Spirit publisher and journalist/writer, Tom McCloud.  To allow our guest enough time, we adjust our class schedule slightly.  Please see the adjusted class schedule attached below if your student is part-time to accurately plan your arrival time. Secondary students are to come to school dressed in High Convocation in honor of our guest. Parents are always welcome to join us for our chapel services.

Grammar School:

On Monday afternoon, our Grammar School students will end the day with a visit from the Tulsa Fire Department. They will be instructing our grammar students about fire safety and giving them an opportunity to explore one of their fire trucks. They should have a lot of exciting things to share on their journey home.



OCTOBER LUNCH ORDERS

The monthly lunch order forms for October are available in the school office and are attached below.  If you are ordering for the month, please turn in your order form and payment by Friday, September 30th.  Students may still order lunch each morning at the office window or in their first class.  This monthly order form is for your convenience only.

 

 

ALADDIN DVD’S ARE HERE!

If you ordered a dvd of the Summer Week of the Arts production of “Disney’s Aladdin, Jr.” you can pick that up in the school office.  The cost is only $10 and checks can be made out to ACA.  If you ordered a photo cd, we also have those in the office.  The photo cd’s are $15 and checks should be made out to Nick Conroy.



ONGOING FUNDRAISERS

ACA participates in a few fundraisers that are easy to participate in and they go throughout the year!  

Office Depot has their 5% Back to Schools Program and will send us a gift card each quarter based upon how many customers credit their purchases to ACA.  When making a purchase, just tell them that you want our school to get credit.  Our school number is: 70120398 (which you can put in your phone and have it with you!) or the store can look us up.  We are listed by our corporate name - St. Augustine Academy, Inc.

Boxtops for Education are found on many products that we all purchase every week and those little coupons are worth cash to our school.  Please make it a habit to cut out or tear off those Boxtops and bring them to the school office.  See the list of Boxtop products attached below!

If you regularly shop online at Amazon, you can support our school by joining Amazon Smile!  Just go to https://smile.amazon.com and sign up to support Augustine Christian Academy.  Then when you shop Amazon, sign in on the smile.amazon.com page and a percentage of your purchase will be sent to ACA.  It’s really easy to support ACA and you still get those great Amazon prices!
