“SEUSSICAL”, THE MUSICAL
ACA’s Jr. Production Company will open its production, Seussical Jr. , THIS Thursday, April 14th. This much-loved musical celebrates the power of imagination, the importance of believing in oneself, and reminds everyone that “A person’s a person, no matter how small!” The production features many well-known Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, the Who’s, and of course, the Cat in the Hat, who acts as host and MC.
Seussical will run for 5 performances, closing on Sunday, April, 17. The musical debuted on Broadway in 2000, before touring the U.S. and the U.K. It remains a staple of regional and school theater.

SUCCESSFUL BOOK FAIR
A big THANK YOU to all of the parents, grandparents, and students who helped with our Scholastic Book Fair. We had a HUGE sale this year with total sales of $3557.00. This means that our ACA teachers will get 50% of that amount to spend on classroom supplies and books from the Scholastic catalogue! By collecting loose change and with the amount of books we sold, we also earned $181.00 in credit to purchase books to donate to others. We were able to purchase 29 books which we donated to the Shriner’s Children’s Burn Hospital. Thank you for supporting our Book Fair!
