Our annual “State of the School” parent meeting is this evening, at 6:00 p.m. We ask that at least one parent from each family plan to attend this extremely important meeting.  At the conclusion of the parent meeting, parents are invited to meet with teachers for your child’s upcoming year to view curriculum and answer grade-specific questions. Also, commitment fees (10% of tuition) and contracts for the 2018/19 academic year are due no later than February 8, 2018.

Musings:  New Faces in a New Semester

It has taken us a bit longer than usual to get into our spring semester routine due to snow days last week.  However, the current week has run extremely smoothly thanks to the “intentionality” of our faculty and families.  We do have a new teacher, Mrs. Hannah Nichols, in 3rd grade, and two new students.  Jacob Freeman has enrolled in kindergarten, and Greer Long is now in 1st grade.  All three of these individuals, along with their families, are great additions to our ACA family.  Please look for opportunities to meet and get to know them.  Interestingly, all three of these families became aware of opportunities to join our school through current families.  You truly are our best marketing resources!  Thank you for your efforts thus far.  Please keep up the good work.

Spelling Bee

Congratulations to Hannah Pittman for placing first in our school Spelling Bee. Congratulations also to Maggie Walker, second place, and Katie Deist, third place, for their outstanding performances under pressure. Well done, young ladies!  Congratulations are also in order for the entire student body.  They were extremely encouraging to their classmates who were competing in the Bee.  There was a sincere atmosphere of celebration during the entire event.  It was wonderful to see!

School Photo

Natalie and John from Cameragraphics will be here on Wednesday, February 7th to take a photo of our entire student body and faculty. Parents will be notified once the proof is available on their website for ordering purposes.

Open House
