It’s that time of year!

Advent approaches.  It’s the season when we look forward and prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, our Savior.  At ACA that means we are singing and memorizing and practicing music and scripture which points us to that anniversary.  Please be sure to note on your family calendar our schoolwide Advent & Christmas celebration — Thursday, December 6:00 p.m.  Covenant Presbyterian Church, 445 Shelton Mill Road, Auburn, has once again graciously agreed for us to hold our celebration there.  Students will need to be in their seats on the stage in the church building at 5:30 p.m.  They will wear their Chapel uniforms.

We will have a reception afterwards in the Covenant fellowship hall.  Someone will be getting in touch with you regarding how you may volunteer for set up, decorating, clean up and food.  Please contribute as you are able.

If you know that your student has a conflict and will not be a part of the Celebration, please notify me by email ( as soon as possible.

One other important detail …dismissal time on Thursday, December 6, is noon!  Hopefully that gives students some “down time” between school and our program.  ALSO, this is a great event to invite friends who may be curious about our school.  Please be proactive in helping us recruit more families like yours to be a part of ACA.

By the way, as I get ready for family and our Thanksgiving celebration next week, I will be thanking God for you.  I love being a part of our school family, and I am truly thankful for every…single…one…of…you!

Auburn University students have created large posters representing 27 different languages. The students will be standing by their posters helping explain different aspects of each language. There will be refreshments, music, and little giveaways with different languages on them. If you are interested, check out the poster for this event:
