Mrs. Post WANTS YOU to join the cast of Disney’s 101 Dalmatians July 15 - 19, 9:00 am – 2:00 pm. NO auditions or previous experience needed. Besides all the cute little puppies, there are lots of parts for older students - both male and female (Cruella, dog catchers, narrators, mom and dad, and the lead puppies). This is a great musical with lots of fun music and a fun script. You can also invite all your friends to join the cast with you. Students do NOT need to attend ACA to participate. Many parents have asked if a younger sibling could participate. IF a student can handle a 5 hour long rehearsal (with a break for lunch)… then YES, students in grades 1 or 2 may join the cast.

So, what are you waiting for? To hold your spot in the musical, please call the school office THIS WEEK! There is a $20 registration fee due upon registration (one per family) with the balance due the first day of class. There is a minimum amount of cast needed to produce this musical, so if you or your friends are thinking about joining the cast…please do so in the next week or two.

The registration form is attached below. If you need more information, you can call the school office or call Mrs. Post at (918-852-2040).

Mrs. Linda Geppelt, ACA’s costume curator, is asking for help with a costume project this Thursday, June 6, noon until 4:00 p.m. in the Performing Arts Building. We have many costumes that need to be organized and labeled. Parents & high school students are welcome to volunteer and students will earn community service points for helping!


Report cards for 4th quarter, Iowa Test results (grades K5-6th), and diplomas (seniors) can be picked up in the school office. The office is open Monday – Friday, 9:00 – 4:00.


The ACA Performing Arts Dept. is looking for an off site storage location for some of the props that have been created for our plays. The location does not need to be heated/cooled, but must be weather proof. If you have a garage, barn, or shed you aren’t using and would be willing to lend the space to ACA, please contact Mr. John Ahrens at [email protected].


The Rhetoric English Mastery Exam will be given this summer on Wednesday, June 12, and on Tuesday, July 23. This test will begin at 9:00 a.m. on both dates. Students scoring a 80% or better on the REME are not required to take the high school level English Grammar class. The cost of the test is $50 for three opportunities to pass the test. The REME is offered each year in the spring and summer. Call or email the ACA office to sign your student up for the test. Students may check out a book from the office to review for the test.


The ACA office is now on summer hours. The office will be open 9:00 – 4:00 Monday – Friday and will be closed on Memorial Day, May 27, and on July 4 & 5.
