TRIVIA NIGHT

A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who attended our Trivia Night fundraiser event!  It was a wonderful evening of entertainment, food, and fellowship!  We appreciate all of you who donated auction items, purchased auction items, or made a donation to ACA.  



5th GRADE FUNDRAISER

Our 5th grade class is planning a trip to the Cosmosphere!  To help with the cost of their trip, they are sponsoring a Spirit Wear Week the week of March 6 - 10.  To participate in this Spirit Wear Week, students must purchase a wristband and wear it during the week of March 6 - 10.  Wristbands will be for sale next week, Feb. 27 - March 3, before school in the Great Room (from Mrs. Woods) and during lunch time (from Mrs. Bailey).  Wristbands cost $10 for the whole week of spirit wear, or $5 for two days of spirit wear (MW or T/Th).  Contact Mrs. Woods with questions.




STEM FAMILY NIGHT

This Friday, March 3, is our STEM Family Night in the ACA Great Room.  Our 5th graders have been working really hard on their Science Fair projects which will be on display!  There will also be several STEM Stations to visit, including: Build a Boat, Paper Football, Hoop Gliders, Computer Animation, and Drag Devices.  Bring the whole family to this FREE science exploration evening!

“WILLY WONKA” POSTERS AND CARDS

Help us get the word out to the community! We have beautiful posters advertising “Willy Wonka”. If you can put one up in your office, in your church, or other venue, we would greatly appreciate it. We also have 4x6 poster cards that can be handed out or mailed.  Posters and poster cards are available in the school office.



 

SEEKING CARPENTERS AND CREATIVE MINDS

We have several carpentry projects and a very creative design project needed for “Willy Wonka”. Carpentry projects include building (or refinishing) the Candy Man’s candy cart;  a Headboard and a Footboard for the Grandparents bed, two life size bottles of fizzy soda, and the Gobstopper Machine that produces Violet’s gumball. Mrs. Post has photos of all projects. All supplies will be furnished…we just need your skills and creativity. Each of the projects are due March 31st. These are great projects for CAST PARENTS (“Willy Wonka” or “Beauty & the Beast”) that need to complete their volunteer hours. Call Mrs. Post (918-852-2040) or Mr. Post (918-832-4600) if you would like to take on a project or if you have questions.




NEW DESKS!

Attention all Grammar School dads (especially 1st-4th grade dads):

ACA has been blessed with a gift of about 80 student desks that are newer and in much better shape than our current desks. We will be utilizing them in our 1st through 4th grade classrooms, but need some assistance in picking them up from our friends at Metro Christian Academy. If you have a pickup truck or trailer (or both) and would be willing to donate some time to help Mr. Post coordinate a pick-up of these desks, please reach out to Mrs. Cathey at [email protected] . We will schedule the pick-up based on your feedback and availability.  Thank you in advance for your help with this!



ISRAEL TRIP

Twenty-one ACA students, staff, and parents will leave early this Saturday morning, March 4th, on their way to visit the Holy Land.  Please keep them in your prayers during the following two weeks as they tour Israel and visit the many places we read about in the Bible.  They will return on March 19th.  ACA sponsors this Israel Tour every other year and it is open to ACA Juniors, Seniors, ACA families, and staff.




JEAN ANDERSON BIBLE AWARD

We encourage all of our high school students to enter this Bible contest on Friday, March 10th.  The winner receives a new Bible and a $300 account credit that can be used for tuition, lunches, Winter Court tickets, New Life Ranch, etc.  Contact Mr. Post for more information - [email protected] .



AUGGIE AWARDS DATE CHANGED

This year the Auggie Awards ceremony date has been moved to SATURDAY, MAY 6TH, 6:30 – 9:30pm, instead of May 5th. This year it will be held at Highland Park Church in their gymnasium. This is the huge awards ceremony for all Performing Arts Students and Parents. Students are asked to dress up (we encourage high school to recycle their Winter Court clothes). More information will follow later.



SICKNESS

This time of the year is a notorious season for flu, colds, sinus infections, and overall yuckiness. We ask that you remember the school policy. If your student has diarrhea, vomiting, and/or fever they are not allowed at school. The student must remain home until free of those symptoms for a full 24 hours.  We appreciate your help with this as we would like to keep our students and staff healthy!




“BEAUTY & THE BEAST” DVD’S

The dvd’s of our fall production of Disney’s “Beauty & the Beast” are now available in the school office.  If you pre-paid for your dvd, it has already been delivered to your student.  If you did not pre-pay, the cost is $20 each.  We also still have dvd’s of last year’s productions of “The Sound of Music” and “Seussical” available for $20 each.




IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO PURCHASE A YEARBOOK!

Ordering a yearbook is easy!  Go to www.TreeRing.com/validate and enter our school’s code:  1014725638033905.

You will have the option to personalize two pages of the yearbook for your student.  These pages will only appear in your child’s book and can cover any family or personal memories from the year.  (Yearbook Staff will review pages for appropriate content.)  You can come back to this step later - just remember your log-in information!

Yearbooks will be delivered at senior graduation in May! Don’t miss out!  Only $35.00, but yearbooks must be pre-ordered.
