Letters and emails are still being sent out and we are seeing donations coming in as people are sponsoring ACA students for the Serve-a-thon & the Wheel-a-thon taking place on Friday, October 5th. As of 9/25/12 $14,044 has been raised toward our goal of $50,000. If your family has not yet sent out sponsorship letters or emails, there is still time! Call the school office if you have any questions or need supplies.
Volunteers are needed to help with the Wheel-a-thon on Friday, October 5th. Whether you can stay only a couple of hours or for the whole day, we can use you! If you can help, please call Mrs. Tanyala Woods at 918-261-0841 or the school office. Also, remember that student in grades K4-5th should bring their helmets along with their bikes, trikes, scooters, and roller blades that day!
Just a reminder: Please DO NOT stop in the driveway when dropping off your students in the mornings before school. This blocks traffic on 30th Street and may cause an accident. Please pull around to the back of the building, or pull into a parking space.
Discount coupons for the Tulsa State Fair were distributed to students today. There are some extra coupons available in the school office – first come, first serve as long as they last. The Tulsa State Fair begins this weekend.
LOOKING FOR GOOD NEWS
We are looking for “Good News” about our ACA students, parents, teachers, and alumni to share in the Fall 2012 Augustine Forum magazine. If your family has good news to share, please send us an email at: [email protected] and we’ll make sure it gets into the magazine. Please include awards, special recognition or accomplishments, Tulsa State Fair entry prizes, scholarships, college degrees, etc.
This Friday is the final Friday in September, so it will be a Spirit Wear Day for everyone – no coupon necessary. Please check the Parent/Student Handbook for Spirit Wear guidelines.
