HEAR YE, HEAR YE

The Prince is giving an AUDITION WORKSHOP for all loyal subjects in grades 9 - 12 in the Kingdom of Augustine!  This workshop is for our upcoming fall musical, Rodger & Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” (Broadway version), and will be held on Friday, the 17th day of August, 3:30 - 8:00 p.m.  The pleasure of your presence is requested in the ACA Performing Arts Building for this magical event. A light dinner will be served. Students should pick up a registration form in the school office!  The workshop is free, but registration is required so we can plan for dinner and materials.



SENIORS & PARENTS MEETING

On Monday, August 20th, at 6:30 p.m. there will be a mandatory meeting for all ACA seniors and their parents (at least one parent must attend).  Mr. Post, Headmaster, and Mrs. Rowland, class sponsor, will be providing information about senior class events, portraits, announcements, graduation, etc.  Join them in the Great Room!

 

CHARGER ROUND TABLE AT NEW LIFE RANCH

Next Thursday and Friday, August 23 & 24, our 6th - 12th grade students will be going to New Life Ranch for the annual Charger Round Table to kick off the school year.  This is so much more that just an overnight get-a-way! The theme for the year will be introduced, there will be team building activities in the Houses, worship times together, and tons of fun.  This two day retreat helps new students make friends and it sets the tone for the rest of the year! The cost of $125 per student covers transportation, housing, 4 meals, and use of many of New Life Ranch’s activities (including the waterfront activities).  Permission slips are due by Monday, August 20, so we can let the ranch know how many are coming.  See the permission slip attached below for more information.  Several ACA staff & faculty go along with the students, but we do need a couple of brave parents to join us as chaperones… contact the school office if you are interested in joining us!



ACA EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Our Extended Day Program is looking for an energetic and motivated person to work after school each day from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m.  Our program provides individual and group enrichment & play to students of ACA ages K4 - 8th grade.

We are also looking for a few people to substitute teach for us throughout the school year.  If you are interested in doing this, please stop by the school office and pick up an application, or email your resume to [email protected]

 

CAR-POOL MAP

If you are looking for a family to car-pool with for school this coming year, we can help you find someone who lives close to you.  We have a map that shows where all of our school families are located. Because it is a private map, you will need to contact the school office for the website and password.  918-832-4600 or [email protected]



EXTENDED DAY REGISTRATION FOR 2018-2019

It’s not too late to enroll in ACA’s Extended Day Program for the 2018-2019 school year. This program is for students K4-8th grade from 3:15 - 5:30 pm daily.  Please see the registration form attached below.  If you have any questions, feel free to call the school office at 918-832-4600 or Mrs. Williams at 314-952-3320.



TUITION PAYMENTS

If you have not yet set up your tuition payment plan for the new school year, please do so as soon as possible.  We rely on tuition payments to meet our obligations each month, so we do need to know how our families are planning to pay their tuition this year.  Thank you for your attention to this matter!



FACTS PAYMENT PLAN OPTIONS

THERE ARE SEVERAL COSTS THAT CAN BE ADDED TO YOUR MONTHLY PAYMENTS.  House & Grammar school 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.




A GATHERING FOR NEW FAMILIES

All new ACA families (and their ACA sponsors) are invited to an ICE CREAM SOCIAL hosted by the ACA Hen House.  This will be a great opportunity for us to get to know you, and for you to get to know some other families at ACA! It will be held on Saturday, September 8th at 5:00 p.m. in the ACA Performing Arts Building.  If you are able to attend, please RSVP by texting or calling Mia Chasteen at 918-549-8201.  Hen House members joining us, please bring an ice cream topping of your choice! We look forward to seeing all of you!  After the social, you are welcome to stick around for the Senior Carnival that evening!
