The Charger Newsletter


Re-enrollment information was mailed out earlier this week… However, we accidentally sent Enrollment Contracts that were an older version of the contract. Some of the wording in the contract was changed and the newer version should have been sent. The new version of the Enrollment Contract is being mailed out to parents today. Please use this new version when re-enrolling your student. The new Enrollment Contract is also attached below. We apologize for any confusion this will cause.


The deadline to turn in your candy bar money is this Friday, Feb. 28th! Prizes will go to the top 3 selling families on Monday, March 3rd after Chapel. Prizes are based on the most boxes sold with the money having been turned in by the Feb. 28 deadline.

You have done a great job this year! We actually ran out of inventory and we had a couple of families wanting more to sell.

A BIG THANK YOU to ACA parent Bethany Williams for organizing the Grammar School storage closet!

If you have some gently used containers or baskets you could donate, please bring them to the school office. Thanks so much!
