THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVE OPPORTUNITY

We have already had a very nice start to the Thanksgiving For the Homeless food drive this year by tying it to the admission fee for Trivia Night. We would like to continue that food drive in our ongoing partnership with Vision Family Ministries. Each student and staff member who donates $5 cash, or at least $5 worth of packaged Thanksgiving food goods (canned Green Beans, Stuffing mix, canned pumpkin, gravy, etc.), will be allowed to come in Spirit Wear upon our return to school on Tuesday, November 27th. Other food goods are also welcome! (Those who have already donated at Trivia Night have been noted and will be able to wear Spirit Wear on the 27th.)

Food drop-off dates will be Monday and Tuesday, November 19th and 20th at the front office.  Thank you in advance for your generosity.



THANKSGIVING BREAK EXTENDED

More than just “harvest time”, Thanksgiving is an important national day of remembering the source of our continued blessings, and a time to join together with family and friends to thank our Gracious God for His grace and provisions. Our Thanksgiving holiday break will be a little longer this year.  We have added the Monday after Thanksgiving, November 26th, to allow more of our families, including teachers, additional travel time to return from visiting relatives and celebrating together. We have counted our school days, and found them sufficient to allow for this added time off from school.  Classes will resume on Tuesday, November 27th. Because this is a change, we wanted you to have as much notice as possible.  We hope you will all have a blessed time of giving thanks and enjoying family.



EVENT PARKING INFORMATION

We need to ask that our ACA families not park in the Akdar Shriner’s parking lots.  We have been informed that we no longer have permission to park in either of the Shriner parking lots. It is our desire to reconcile this with their leadership but, in the meantime, we must ask that you use the ACA parking lot for all activities until we are able to resolve their concerns. Although normally we are able to park next door for special events, there may be times when the Vision Family Ministries parking lot is unavailable for use. We will post signage if we are unable to use their parking lot during an event.  For the play next week, we can use our back field and the small lot in front of the PAB for parking.  Cast members are asked carpool if possible, to reduce the number of cars on our lots.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
