Scrip Gift Cards

We are drawing close to the end of the school year. If you are planning to give gift cards to grads, as year end gifts, or if you will be traveling over the summer… please consider Scrip, so that ACA will receive a rebate from your purchase. You won’t spend any extra time or money, and there are no donations. You’re simply earning rebates by shopping with gift cards instead of cash or credit.

Mrs. Deist will be placing a physical gift card order Tuesday April 18th, so you will have the cards by the week of 4/24.

Return the attached form directly to Mrs. Deist with payment, or place in a sealed envelope addressed to her in her school mailbox, by Monday 4/17/17. Checks are payable to ACA.

If you already have established a Scrip account, please place your order online. The order for physical cards will be submitted 4/18/17.

Grandparents’ Day

You and your family are invited to attend our annual Grandparents’ Day on Thursday, April 20th at 9:00 am.  This will be an opportunity for the students to showcase some of the material they have learned this year.  The event will be held in the Assembly Room.

Following the presentations, join us for a reception in the Lunch Room.  Students will be dismissed from school at noon, following the reception.  If you do not plan to attend this event, please make arrangements for your student to be picked up at noon.  Our desire is that a shortened day will allow family to enjoy extended time together.

We ask that students wear their best chapel attire for this event.  In light of this, chapel attire will not be required on Wednesday, April 19th.  Students will be allowed to wear their ACA T-Shirts on Wednesday in place of Thursday.

If you would like to volunteer for Grandparents’ Day, and have not already, please email Mrs. Vaughan. Her email address can be found in your ACA Family Directory.

Thespian Thursday

Thursday, April 27th students have the option of attending school dressed as their favorite character from one of the books they have read this year as part of their class curriculum. Character choices may be from books that were read over a break as an assignment or in-class read aloud books. Students should seek approval for their character costume from their teacher. All attire should be tasteful and in keeping with ACA dress standards. Students that choose not to participate in Thespian Thursday may wear their usual ACA Thursday uniform.

Usborne Book Fair

April 26-27 we will be hosting an Usborne Book Fair in the Assembly Room. Students will have the opportunity to shop at a scheduled time with their class. Purchases may also be made at any time from now through April 27th.  Families are also able to gift books by grade using the wish lists on the shopping site. Feel free to share with out of town family and friends who are unable to attend the fair. All purchases made through the link will help ACA earn free books.

Spirit Night

Join us Wednesday, May 3rd at Chipotle,  in Tiger Town, between the hours of 5 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.! Mention ACA and 50% of the proceeds will be donated to ACA. Pre-order a Chipotle gift card from Scrip and ACA will receive an additional 10%.
