PERFORMING ARTS – “Oklahoma!”
All students entering grades 9 - 12 are invited to the FREE audition workshop for our upcoming fall musical “Oklahoma!” on Friday, August 15th after school until 9:00 p.m. Auditions will be held on August 17th and 18th, after school, with call-backs on the 19th. Our “Oklahoma!” performances will be November 13 - 16, 2014. Students should register for the workshop so Mrs. Post will know how many will be there for dinner. Workshop registration forms are available in the office.
Our full line up of vender lunches will not begin until the week of August 25th, however, on Wednesday, August 20th, we will have CiCi’s pizza available. Pizza is $1.25 per slice. Students must order their pizza first thing in the morning! Older elementary students and secondary students will order in their first hour class, but young elementary students must order at the office window. We will offer “Lunch Ledgers” again this year. Parents may set up a ledger page in the office for your students to use for lunch purchases. Our venders this year include Chick-fil-A, Subway, and Cici’s. Also, next week the monthly lunch order form will be available for September. Watch the Charger next week for the monthly order form.
NEW LIFE RANCH
Next week on Thursday and Friday, August 21 & 22, ACA students in grades 6 - 12 will be heading to New Life Ranch in Colcord, OK. The cost is $100 per student which includes transportation, overnight lodging, all activities, and four meals. Permission slips are due on Monday, August 18 and payment is due on August 20 (unless other arrangements are made). Students not attending New Life Ranch will not have classes because the secondary teachers will also be at New Life Ranch. You will find the permission slip and additional information attached below. If you have questions, please call the school office at 918-832-4600.
