ACA is in need of a volunteer Photo Librarian for the many, many photos that our yearbook staff and others have taken. If you would like to get more information or volunteer for this job, please contact Mr. John Ahrens at: [email protected]


Because our students have to wear their High Convocation uniforms later in the week next week for graduation ceremonies, Mr. Post has proclaimed Monday, May 13, a Spirit Wear Day for everyone. No coupon necessary! Students MUST wear their High Convocation uniform for the graduation ceremonies they are participating in or attending.


Final exams for students in grades 6 – 12 will be on May 15 – 17. The final exam schedule is attached below. Students only need to be at school for the class periods during which they are taking a final exam. No lunches will be available May 15 – 17, so students staying through the lunch period should pack their lunch! There will be after school care available on the 15th & 16th, but not on Friday, May 17th. Please plan to pick up your student on promptly at noon on May 17.

As you know, Dr. Larry Ehrlich, our administrator, is retiring at the end of May. There will be a Retirement Open House for Dr. Ehrlich on Sunday, June 2, from 2:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. in the ACA Great Room. We want to celebrate his many years at ACA! Current and former ACA students, families, and teachers are invited! Please plan to drop by and wish him well on his new adventure of retirement!


If you have not yet enrolled your student for next year, please bring in your enrollment forms before the school year ends. Since our curriculum orders are made during the summer, it’s helpful to know how many students will be in each class.


We are at the end of the year and there are a lot of clothing items in our lost & found! Please have your student check for items that might belong to them, because once school is out we will no longer keep the lost & found items!


Tulsa Youth Lacrosse is hosting a Summer Kick Off Bash on Saturday, May 11, 2:00 – 4:00. If your student is interested in learning about the sport of lacrosse, you won’t want to miss this event. They will have demonstrations, instruction, skill games, free hot dogs, and prizes! For more information, go to
