If you missed it the first time… or if you didn’t like your yearbook portrait, plan to get your picture taken on Tuesday, November 5th! If you did not like your portrait, please return your proofs or portrait package to the school office for a re-take. The photographer will begin taking portraits at 10:00 a.m. Students must wear their ACA polo shirt for their picture!


The power outage yesterday forced us to close school, so the PLAN test will be next Wednesday, November 6th. All ACA 10th graders will be taking the PLAN test. This test will begin promptly at 8:00 a.m. Part-time 10th graders should plan to be here for the PLAN test even if they are not normally at school on Wednesday mornings. Please call the school office if you have any questions.


On Friday, November 8th, at 7:00 p.m. in the Great Room, our Grammar School students will be performing “United We Stand”, a patriotic musical honoring our founding fathers and our American veterans. Our young students have been working hard and you won’t want to miss it. Make plans to attend! Aunts, uncles, grandparents, and friends are welcome to attend with you!


The Senior Class would like to thank all those who came to the Chili’in With the Seniors chili dinner and dessert auction. Thanks to all of you, the seniors raised over $1500 for their class fund.


Be sure to mark your calendars for Friday, November 22nd! On that date, the teachers and staff will express our thanks to the students and families of ACA in the form of a “Teacher Follies” at Woodlake Assembly of God church. This will be a wonderful evening of fun and frivolity showcasing the talents of our teachers and staff through songs, drama, & displays of their handiwork. We will also include a time of praise and worship during which the offering for the teachers’ Christmas bonus will be received. The Board of Governors will be offering a Matching Challenge to our parents and are asking for your full support. We will close the evening with a time of fellowship together in the banquet hall where some of our more artistic teachers will display their work. Cookies and punch will be provided. Our goal is to honor your generosity by providing you with the performance of a lifetime! Be sure to set aside the evening for a wonderful time of fun and fellowship for all ages!


We are making some changes to the lunch choices beginning in November! Subway will be moving to Tuesdays and Chick-fil-A will be available on Mondays & Thursdays! Café 320 will be offering turkey & cheese and ham & cheese sandwiches instead of turkey or ham wraps (beginning Nov. 8)! (Café 320 supplied the sandwiches for our secondary students’ lunches on our Serve-a-thon day and they were a hit!) We are no longer able to offer the lunches from Platt College on Tuesdays. You will find the November monthly lunch order form attached below. If you are ordering for the month, please bring your order form and payment to the school office by this Friday, Nov. 1st.


ACA Juniors and Seniors going on the spring trip to the Eastern Seaboard are raising money with “Fun Pasta Fundraising”. They are excited to sell Fun Pasta because there is a large selection of products in fun shapes for everyone, and “online sales” earn even more profit for our group! But we need your help getting the word out…

Please forward this in an email and post on FACEBOOK encouraging all of your family and friends to order. With each online order placed on our group´s web page, 40% of the sale (excluding shipping) will go back to our group and help them achieve their fundraising goal for the trip! Visit the web site below… and remember that these products make great Christmas gifts!

Their fundraiser will end on 12/20/2013, so spread the word - and thank you so much for supporting the Junior/Senior East Coast Trip!
