The Charger Newsletter


We had a wonderful evening of fellowship with our ACA families last night at Chick-fil-A!  David Chen, owner of the restaurant, contacted me just after 9:00 last evening to let us know how he felt the evening went.  ”It was such a great turnout and my team just loved being able to serve and help out with the event! I couldn’t hardly wait to see the numbers so I went ahead and pulled everything tonight. We had a total of 70 transactions or turned-in receipts that were here to support the school with a total of $902.61 in sales! At 20%, that would be $180.52 back to the school, but we’ll just call it $200 even. I really do appreciate all your help and support and I’m looking forward to a great partnership moving forward!” This was their first fundraiser event and I believe our ACA families have set the bar pretty high in their eyes. David and his team truly appreciated how gracious our families were and I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who were able to come out for fellowship. You are all such a blessing!  Watch the Charger for our next Family Fellowship Night coming soon.  - John Ahrens


This is just a reminder about the drop-in feature of our after school  program. It is designed for those who are just running a little behind schedule occasionally.  If you are moving into a season where your child will need to remain after school for longer than half an hour on a regular basis, please register for our Extended Day program. There are group projects, games, activities, and snack is provided. Drop-In is for short stay only and is mostly homework focused. With the musical coming into full swing very soon, some of you may need to consider using the Extended Day program. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Ahrens at [email protected]


Auditions will be held tomorrow after school. The performing arts handbook and the audition forms can be printed or downloaded from Gradenet.  If you have difficulty downloading/printing off these forms, please call the school office.  Please contact Mrs. Post with any other questions.


Winter Court, our annual formal event for high school students, will be held on the evening of Friday, January 29th.  Winter Court will be held at Woodlake Assembly Church.  Tickets are on sale now in the school office and are $35 per student!  Students who are bringing dates who do not attend ACA, must pick up a Guest Permission Form in the school office.  All girls must have their dresses checked for modesty - please contact Miss Crow at [email protected] for more information.  

Parents,  because this is a special time for our students, parents are not invited to come into Winter Court, even to “snap a picture or two”.  We know you are curious, but it really interrupts the formal aspect of the event when parents are walking around in their street clothes snapping pictures. Please take pictures of your children at home before they come and ask them to take pictures to show you later.

Also Parents:  We need a few volunteers to help with pick-up/clean-up at the end of Winter Court.  Parents would need to arrive at Woodlake Church at 8:45 and would be done by 9:45ish.  If you can help, please email Mrs. Cathey at [email protected] to volunteer.

To allow our students and staff the time necessary to set up and get ready for Winter Court, we will dismiss school for all grades that day at noon.  There will be no lunch and no after school care offered on the 29th.  (Those who pre-ordered lunches for January 29th will have their money refunded to their lunch ledger or to their student.)  Please make plans to have your students picked up by 12:15 that Friday.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.


Our Trivia Night fundraiser (on February 27th) is just around the corner! As we have in the past, we are looking for special items for the silent and live auction portion of the night’s festivities. If you have any suggestions and can open a few doors for us to be able to offer unique goods or services, please let us know. Our Grammar classes and Houses will once again be entering a gift basket contest with their specially crafted creations. The baskets last year were amazing and we look forward to seeing what this year holds. We will be ready to begin selling tables for this event in the next few weeks and we look forward to seeing your competitive side with your table themes and decorations!  Watch for more information on Trivia Night coming soon!


Just a reminder that there is no school on Monday, January 18th, due to Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  Enjoy your 3 day weekend!  Also, C & J Uniforms, our preferred uniform provider, is having a one day sale on Monday.  Please see the flyer attached below for more information.


With the possibility of snowy days on the horizon, we wanted to send out another reminder to please download the SchoolWay App to your phone before winter weather hits the Tulsa area!  We do announce our school closings on the local TV stations, but an alert that comes right to your phone is so much more efficient!  These are “alert only” messages, so it will be infrequent but important. See the flyer attached below for more information.


Our regular office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day that school is in session. If you need to reach someone outside of office hours, please email [email protected] .
