There are only a few tickets left for the Friday and Saturday performances of our Junior Performing Arts Company’s production of “Pinkalicious”.  Don’t wait until the last minute to get your tickets!  Performances will be this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, November 4 & 5 at 7:00 p.m. and on November 6 at 3:00 p.m.  Ticket prices are: $5 for children and $8 for adults.  This musical is fun for kids ages 3 to 93!

On Saturday, November 5 at 5:30 p.m. there will be a Pre-Show Party for Pinkerbelles and Pinkerfellas – Adults: $15 & Children $12  (includes fun foods, desserts, meet Pinkalicious & other members of the cast, photo opportunities, games, give-aways, ticket to that evening’s performance of Pinkalcious, and more).  

The Performing Arts Booster Club will be preparing a special concession box, which will include a pink drink, pink cupcake, popcorn, and a special treat!  These must be purchased in the school office prior to the performance dates and may not be available for purchase at the concession stand.  The cost is $5 per box.  Stop by the office to order your special concession box!



The Performing Arts Booster Club shirts are here!  If you joined the PABC this fall, please stop by the school office to pick up your shirt.  The shirts are white, so we would prefer not to send them home in your student’s backpack!



The 2011-2012 ACA yearbook is on sale now and the first 25 yearbooks sold will cost only $25!  After the first 25 are sold, the cost will go up, so be sure to stop by the office or go to the school website and order your yearbook soon!



The audition workshop for the spring production of “Hello Dolly” will be held on Saturday, November 12th.  Registration forms are available in the school office.  All students in grades 9 – 12 are invited to participate in “Hello Dolly”.



The Class of 2012 is sponsoring a Talent Show on Friday evening, November 11th, at 7:00 p.m. in the ACA Great Room.  The registration forms are now available in the school office for those students entering the talent show.



The EXPLORE Test will be given on Tuesday, November 8th, to all ACA 8th graders and any 9th graders who have not yet taken it.  The EXPLORE Test is the test we use to determine the reading level of students when they apply for their driver permit, so it is important that these students take it.  The test will begin at 8:00 a.m. and will be over at approximately 11:15 a.m.  Questions?  Please call the school office.



ACA is supporting Greenwood Christian Center in their Thanksgiving food distribution to needy families in the neighborhood of their church.  Beginning tomorrow, we will start collecting the following items for the food baskets:

Boxes of instant potatoes

Canned green beans

Canned corn

Canned sweet potatoes

Canned cranberry sauce

Canned gravy

Stuffing mix

Mac and cheese

Cake mix


And any other items to help a family have a delicious Thanksgiving meal.  Food items should be taken to your student’s classroom or their House sponsor’s classroom.

And what Thanksgiving meal would be complete without a turkey? Each house and elementary class will have a designated “turkey fund” with which students will bring in either cash or checks payable to ACA.  All money for turkeys must be given to Miss Becki in the office.

Further information concerning points and prizes will be announced at a later date.  Donations of food or money for turkeys must be turned in by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, November 14th.  Thank you so much for your generous heart and willingness to help!



Did you know that ACA receives about $100 each year because people use Goodsearch and Goodshop?  Just go to or and register as an Augustine Christian Academy supporter.  Then each time you use Goodsearch or Goodshop, ACA receives a donation!  This is such an easy way to support ACA!
