A big welcome to those receiving the Charger Newsletter for the first time this week!

 

UNIFORM CONSIGNMENT SALE NEXT WEEK

Has your child outgrown his/her uniforms?  If they are still in good condition, you can consign them at ACA.  You can drop off uniform items you would like to consign at the ACA office by tomorrow, July 19th.  Be sure each item is tagged with your name, the size of the item, and the price you are asking. Please see sample tags attached below.  We have found that it works best to pin your tags onto the clothing.  One dollar of every item sold will go to ACA and the rest will be paid to you.  Any items that are not sold will be returned to you the first week of school. You can also donate uniform items in good condition to the school.

Our “Uniform Consignment Store” will be open for shopping during office hours (9:00 - 4:30) July 23 - August 9, and at each of the Parent Orientation evenings.  We have a lot of uniform slacks, polo shirts, navy sweaters, skirts, and shorts in all sizes!  There are also some spirit wear shirts available! Shop at ACA before you head out to C & J Uniforms to get uniforms for your students!



SCHOOL SUPPLIES

School supplies are included in tuition for grades K4 - 5th and will be distributed to students the first day or two of school.  Elementary students will still need a backpack and lunch bag. The supply lists for 6th grade and for 7th - 12th grades are attached below.  The back to school sales will begin soon and we want you to be ready!

 

SECONDARY CLASS SCHEDULE

Please see the Secondary Class Schedule attached below.  There are some new courses this year including our new Introduction to Computer Science which includes experience in coding, a new Dialectic Bible class, and Mrs. Anderson will be teaching a new class on Friday mornings called Mission: Geography, which combines an investigation of world geography with a study of historical mission work in these countries and modern persecution of Christians.  If your student is interested in one of these new classes, please be sure to let us know!  You can reach Mrs. Collingsworth at: [email protected]



HELP NEEDED

When school starts in August, one of our families will need some help with after school transportation.  The student will need to be taken to his mother’s place of employment, Tulsa Spine & Specialty Hospital near Tulsa Hills, each day after school.  The driver will be compensated. If you, or your high school driver, is available to help with this, please contact the ACA office and we can put you in touch with the family.  918-832-4600 or [email protected]



DONATE YOUR BACKPACKS

If you are purchasing a new backpack for your student this year, please consider donating the old one!  Imagine if everything you owned had to be carried with you everywhere you go… a backpack would make a world of difference for you.  “Keepers” takes used & worn backpacks and donates them to homeless men and women who need someplace to store their things. You can bring your used backpacks to the ACA office this summer during our normal office hours, or bring them with you on Parent Orientation night.

Attached below is the School Calendar for the new school year.  Please note the dates for Parent Orientations and the first day of school in August!

 

FACTS PAYMENT PLAN OPTIONS

If you are not paying tuition in full or using the two payment (at semester) payment plan through the front office, the FACTS payment program allows you to set up monthly payments. However, PLEASE NOTE that FACTS can no longer accept credit card payments beginning with the next school year. Changes to the credit card laws no longer allow them to keep credit card information on file for monthly drafts.  They will only be able to accept bank draft (or ACH) payments for this process. If this change will adversely impact your payment plan, please reach out to Mr. Ahrens at [email protected] so that other arrangements may be considered.

Our FACTS payment enrollment forms are available in the office.  If you need a form mailed to you, please contact the office.  If you have questions about our tuition payment plans, please contact Mr. Ahrens at the above email address.

THERE ARE SEVERAL COSTS THAT CAN BE ADDED TO YOUR MONTHLY PAYMENTS.  Spirit Wear shirts, New Life Ranch, Performing Arts fees, Senior graduation fees, etc. can be paid out monthly, instead of all at once, if those costs are added to your FACTS tuition payment plan.  Please see the worksheet attached below.  These items can be added to your monthly payments even if your payments have already started… just return the worksheet to the school office.



OFFICE HOURS

The school office is on Summer Hours and will be open Monday - Thursday, 9:00 to 4:30.  If you need to reach someone outside of office hours, please email [email protected] .
