SCHOOL HOUSE ROCK!
We are less than a month away to opening night! This is an incredible show, jam packed with hummable songs and foot-stomping choreography. Tickets are NOW on sale and can be purchased through the school office. Don’t wait until the last minute. This production WILL sell out.
Opening Night, April 10, is also a special evening for prospective parents with students in grades K – 8th. After the performance, they will be invited to meet the principals and take the tour of the school. We are reserving a block of tickets, so if they contact us in advance, they will be our guests to the Thursday evening performance of School House Rock. If you have friends or family with children in this age bracket that are looking for a great school, have them contact the school office for the tour and performance on April 10th.
CAST PARENTS: CORRECTION! Cast fees are due now! If you are not sure if you have paid your fees, please contact the school office for assistance. Also, we have large and small full color posters that need to be put up around town. Please pick up a few to put up in your church, work, organization, etc. and help us get the word out about this fun production!
Our Spring Fundraiser is set for Saturday, April 5th at the Skyline 60 (the 60th floor of the City Plex towers). Our theme this year is Trivia Night! and the evening will be filled with fun and special ACA entertainment. If your students ever talk about the ACA Quiz Bowls, they will tell you that Mr. Post & Mr. Brewer know a thing or two about hosting a fun Trivia contest. Tickets will be $15 per person or $120 to sponsor a table for 8. This is an after-dinner affair with a “Sweet and Salty” theme of desserts, finger foods, and beverages. Let’s invite our family, friends, co-workers and bosses! We know it will be a lot of fun, but we also need to stress that it is a fundraiser and we don’t want to be shy about asking for support for this amazing school.
We still need a few more items for the Live Auction that will be held during the scoring periods. Currently, we have 4 Park Hopper tickets to Walt Disney World, 4 tickets to Wicked at the PAC, Jewelry from Moody’s Jewelry, tickets to The Sound of Music, as well as, the American String Quartet. You can use the letter attached below to help us bring in more auction items. Mr. Ahrens is looking for a team of parents to help with this over the next month. Please let him know if you would be willing to assist.
Tickets will be available following spring break for this very fun and entertaining evening, but you can reserve yours now in the school office.
ACA high school students must take the Rhetoric Grammar class or successfully pass the Rhetoric English Mastery Exam (REME) before graduating from ACA. The REME is usually given twice in the spring and twice in the summer. The cost of the REME testing is $50.00 for three opportunities to pass the test. Students who pass the test with an 80% or better score are not required to take our high school Rhetoric Grammar class. The next date for the REME this spring is Wednesday, April 23 at 4:00 p.m. Students must sign up in advance to take the REME and they can do that by stopping by the office or by emailing: [email protected]
