Our lunch vendors have begun delivering lunches!  Here is the lunch schedule:

Monday - Chick-fil-A

Tuesday - Marco’s Pizza

Wednesday - Nibbler Box (students create their box from a choice of items)

Thursday - Chick-fil-A

Friday - Papa John’s Pizza & Freckles Frozen Custard

Attached below is the Nibbler Box order form (so you can see the options available with that) and the September monthly lunch order form.  If students are ordering in the mornings, K4 - 3rd grade must order at the office window.  4th - 12th grades will order in their classroom.  Students may continue to pack their lunches, we offer lunch from these vendors as an option for our families.  Take a look at the monthly order form to see prices.  Parents may order and pay for the month (pick the days you’d like to order) or you can also set up a lunch ledger for your student in the office.  Students can use money from their lunch ledger to purchase lunches on a day by day basis.  

Please note: The big refrigerator in the Great Room will be cleaned out every Friday afternoon after school and things left in it will go into the trash; so if your student packs their lunch remind them to bring home any plastic containers!  If you have any questions about our lunch program, please call or stop by the office!  

COMING SOON: we will be adding a Salad Bar option to our lunch program!  Watch your email for an announcement about the Salad Bar!

Hamburgers, hotdogs (with all the fixings) and drinks will be provided. The “veteran” ACA families attending are asked to bring either a side or a dessert. There will be a chance to play tennis, volleyball, and spikeball as well as a playground for younger kids. If it rains, we will probably still have the picnic and play some board games under the shelter! Please call or text Mia Chasteen at 918-549-8201 if you can attend. We hope to see you there!



MOMS PRAYER TIME

Join a group of ACA moms to pray for our school, our kids, our teachers & administration, and our families.  They will be meeting on Thursday mornings at 8:15 in room 104 (off of the Great Room across from the 2nd grade classroom).  There are no commitments… just come when you are able to join them!  If you arrive early (before 8:00) you can grab a cup of coffee in the school lobby!



COLLEGE NIGHT

We will be hosting our 3rd Annual College Night on Friday, September 15th at 7:00 pm. We have some great schools coming to be on our college panel - some have been here before but we have some new schools this year. Coming back for the second year is David Burney, financial aid representative from JBU. He was incredible last year presenting the financial aid portion of the evening! We are pleased that he has agreed to come back this year.

Please let your friends and family know that they can come to College Night with you and your high schooler.  You will learn about college admission in general, as well as have the opportunity to learn about the schools that will be there. Most of what they will be talking about will be helpful information no matter where your students decide to attend college. There will be a Q & A session during the evening when everyone can get their questions answered. At the end of the evening the representatives will be set up at their individual tables for students and families to come visit with them individually and ask any other questions they might have. There will also be desserts and coffee during that time.

These are the colleges/universities that will be represented at College Night: TU, ORU, OU, UCO, JBU, OBU, and [email protected]. Mrs. Collingsworth is still waiting to hear from OSU but is hoping they will also be a part of the evening.
