The Charger



As a celebration for the amount of food and turkey money that was donated before Thanksgiving, we will be having an all school Pot Luck Lunch on Friday, December 9th.  The 4th/5th graders and the Dragon House students do not have to bring anything since they donated the most food for the food drive.  Everything should be brought in a disposable container (so good dishes, crock pots, pans, etc. don’t get left at school!).  For more information and a schedule for the day, please CLICK HERE.  Please call the office if you have any questions, 918-832-4600.



ACA students taking the practice ACT on Saturday, December 10 at 9:00 a.m. will be meeting in the Performing Arts Building at ACA.  Students should arrive BEFORE 9:00.  Huntington Learning Center will be giving the practice ACT, and will mail the scores to parents along with a letter evaluating their student’s results.  Students should bring a #2 pencil and their calculator.  Call the school office if you have any questions.



A HUGE THANK YOU to all those who contributed to the offering at the Christmas program last Friday evening.  You provided over $10,000 to bless our faculty and staff for Christmas.  We are humbled and overwhelmed by your outpouring of love.  Thank you so much for this remarkable blessing!



On Friday, December 9, students may wear a Christmas sweater or shirt to school with their uniform slacks or nice jeans.  The sweater or shirt must be red, green, red & white, green & white, or any color if it has a Christmas theme picture on it (wreath, bells, candy canes, snowmen, Santa, etc.).  Students who do not wish to participate in Christmas Sweater/Shirt Day must wear their regular uniform, or may use a Spirit Wear coupon.



Final exams for the first semester will be next Wednesday – Friday, December 14 – 16.  You can get a schedule of exams HERE or in the school office.  PLEASE NOTE: School will be dismissed early on all three days for ALL GRADES.  On Friday, December 16, school will dismiss at noon and there will not be any lunch or after school care available.  All make-up work for the second quarter must be done by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 15.  The school office will close at 12:30 on December 16 for Christmas break and will re-open on January 2.



It’s getting to be that time of year when snow and ice could hit the Tulsa area.  We announce our school closing information on the local TV and radio stations, but keep in mind that if Tulsa Public Schools are closed for bad weather, Augustine Christian Academy will be closed as well.



C & J Uniforms is having their Christmas sale until December 15th.  20% off all new in-stock uniform items and 10% off all monogramming.  If your student is outgrowing their school uniforms, now is the time to visit their store at 51st Street & Memorial Drive.



Augustine Christian Academy participates in the Office Depot 5% Back to Schools Program.  When our families shop at Office Depot and ask the cashier to give credit to ACA, we get a gift card for 5% of the purchases.  These gift cards come every three months, and this week we received one for $26 which we can use for office supplies.  Thank you to everyone who helps ACA when you shop at Office Depot!



This week we received a check from Goodsearch for $34.10.  This donation was earned by our friends and families who used to search the web and to shop online between October 2010 and September 2011.  If you aren’t using Goodsearch, you should check it out!
