The Charger



ACA 7th grader Paul Nnaji took first place and 8th grader Lindy Herzberg took second place in the Tulsa area VFW’s “Patriot’s Pen” essay contest.  At the district level, Paul’s essay took second place, which allows him to continue on to the state level.  Students from all over the Tulsa area entered essays in this contest, and we are very proud of these two from ACA!



Final exams for the first semester are this Wednesday – Friday, December 14 – 16.  You can get a schedule of exams HERE or in the school office.  PLEASE NOTE: School will be dismissed at 2:00 on Wednesday & Thursday, and at noon on Friday for ALL GRADES.  On Friday, December 16, there will not be any lunch or after school care available.  Parents, please make arrangements to pick your student up at noon on Friday!  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 at 9:00 a.m.

A HUGE THANK YOU to those who contributed to the offering to bless our teachers and staff at Christmas.  You provided over $10,000 for gifts!  Our teachers and staff were totally overwhelmed by your outpouring of love.  Thanks so much!



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.



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 we recently received one for $26 which we can use for office supplies.  Thank you to everyone who helps ACA when you shop at Office Depot!



We recently 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!
