ACA CHRISTMAS QUILT

Plan to join us this Friday, December 2nd at 6:30 p.m.  The “ACA Christmas Quilt” is an evening of music, oratory presentations, fun and fellowship. Due to a very busy fall schedule, we are combining our Faculty Follies and our student Christmas Concert into one very special event this year.  Our Show Choir, faculty, small groups, grammar and secondary classes, as well as our Houses, will be performing throughout the evening. Following our wonderful program, we will have a fellowship time together with cookies and beverages. This is an ACA family event for the whole school!  During the evening, we will be honoring our teachers by taking up an offering for their annual Christmas bonus. Please plan to attend; but if you are unable to join us, you may make a  donation online or at the school office.  We look forward to seeing you there as we celebrate Christmas and fellowship together!  Did we mention that there will be cookies?

Secondary students attending must come in High Convocation. Please arrive no later than 6:00 to run through stage entry and exit and to assist as needed. (Please note: this is an arrival time correction!)

Grammar students are to wear their blue polo and uniform slacks/skirts. Please arrive no later than 6:15 to run through stage entry and exit. Grammar students are to sit with their family until given their cue to prepare for their number.

When: THIS Friday, December 2nd, 6:30 p.m.

Where: Highland Park Christian Church, 5708 E. 31st Street, Tulsa  (between Sheridan and Yale)

Primary parking available in the lot west of the church across S. Hudson Ave. Handicap parking available in the east church lot. There is an elevator just inside the east entrance door.

We need your help!  If you would be available to help with the set-up or the clean up at Highland Park Church, please contact Mrs. Cathey at [email protected] to volunteer.  Thanks so much!
 
 
 

SPIRIT WEAR WEEK

Would your student like to have a whole week of spirit wear?  The 8th graders are sponsoring a week of spirit wear, December 5 - 9.  This is a fundraiser for their 8th grade trip in the spring.  Students can purchase the entire week of spirit wear for $10, or two days of spirit wear for $5 (M/W or T/Th).  All students (and teachers) can participate!  Regular spirit wear only, except that students may choose to wear Christmas sweaters/shirts on one of their days (Dec. 7, 8, or 9).  Christmas shirts & sweaters must be Christmas themed and not “homemade” with items pinned or taped on.  Please see Ms. Becki (in the office) this week to purchase spirit wear wristbands.  

 
 

END OF THE SEMESTER

The last day of regular classes for all grades will be Friday, December 16th.  Final exams for secondary students will be on Monday, December 19th and Tuesday, December 20th.  The December lunch menu included Monday the 19th, so if you ordered and your students will not be here that day, your money will be refunded.  The school office will close at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 20th, and will re-open at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 3rd.  Students will report for school on Wednesday, January 4th, for the beginning of second semester.

 
 
 

IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO PURCHASE A YEARBOOK!

Maybe you totally forgot?  Or maybe you just haven’t made the time to do it yet?  Whatever your reason for not ordering your student’s yearbook yet… it’s not too late!  Simply go to: https://www.treering.com/ and click on “Buy Yearbook” in the upper right hand corner of the page.  Then just follow a few simple steps and BOOM! - you’ll be done and can check that off of your “to do list”.  Order a yearbook for each of your students, or just one for your family, but your students will want to have the yearbook to look at in the coming years.  You cannot order at school, so go to: https://www.treering.com/  and get your book ordered before the final order deadline.  Yearbooks will be distributed in May, 2017.
