SCHOOLWAY

If you have not yet added the Schoolway app to your phone, please take a few moments to do so!  Schoolway was one of the methods we used to let our families know that we were closing school on Tuesday…  don’t miss those important announcements - get the Schoolway app today!  You can also sign up online at the link below. Schoolway will be our primary way to alert parents and students when we need to get information to you quickly, as in the case of school closings due to bad weather, a power outage, etc.  Please see the attachment below for more information or go to this link: http://myschoolway.com/acatulsa



COLLEGE NIGHT

We will be hosting our 3rd Annual College Night on Friday, September 15th at 7:00 pm. We have some great schools coming to be on our college panel - some have been here before but we have some new schools this year. Coming back for the second year is David Burney, financial aid representative from JBU. He was incredible last year presenting the financial aid portion of the evening! We are pleased that he has agreed to come back this year.

Please let your friends and family know that they can come to College Night with you and your high schooler.  You will learn about college admission in general, as well as have the opportunity to learn about the schools that will be there. Most of what they will be talking about will be helpful information no matter where your students decide to attend college. There will be a Q & A session during the evening when everyone can get their questions answered. At the end of the evening the representatives will be set up at their individual tables for students and families to come visit with them individually and ask any other questions they might have. There will also be desserts and coffee during that time.

These are the colleges/universities that will be represented at College Night: TU, ORU, OU, UCO, JBU, OBU, and [email protected].




WELCOME PICNIC FOR NEW ACA FAMILIES

If you are a family new to ACA this year, you are invited to a Welcome to ACA Picnic sponsored by the Hen House from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 23rd, at Leake Park (7714 E 71st St, Tulsa, OK 74133). Hamburgers, hotdogs (with all the fixings) and drinks will be provided. The “veteran” ACA families attending are asked to bring either a side or a dessert. There will be a chance to play tennis, volleyball, and spikeball as well as a playground for younger kids. If it rains, we will probably still have the picnic and play some board games under the shelter! Please call or text Mia Chasteen at 918-549-8201 if you can attend. We hope to see you there!
