Prayer Partner Dates

Mrs. Richburg and I have been so blessed to pray with Mrs. Trudi Farkas several times this semester.  We are specifically praying for students, teachers, and families in our school.  We have placed a box on the piano in the Assembly room for requests that folks can drop in anonymously.  I invite you to join our little “band” from 8:30 until 9:30 on the following Thursday mornings:  March 7, 21, April 4, 18 and May 2.

Morningside Assisted Living Visit

Older folks in our area need to see bright, young faces.  They are often isolated from folks other than those with the same failing eyesight and achy joints.  Children need to learn to honor and care for the elderly.  They are sometimes afraid of older people because they are not exposed to a slower pace, graying hair, and wrinkled skin.  Many of you have ample opportunity to provide for your older family members and children to know and appreciate one another.  However, for those of you who do not, a visit to a facility such is a great way to facilitate these “spring/winter” relationships. 

Several of you brought your children and other family members to Morningside of Auburn this past Friday.  We sang some of our Assembly/Chapel hymns and then passed out handmade cards from  students.  (Most of the students in the school responded to my request for them to create cards of encouragement on Thursday.)  Parents then decided that gathering at Chappie’s Deli would be a great way to continue our time together.  A good time was had by all!  Mark your calendars for Friday, March 29, 10:00 a.m.  We are planning a return visit!  Watch for more information.

Thank You Parents!!

We wanted to thank you for all of your help in getting the word out about our Open Houses. They were very successful in bringing new families in and sharing about our school. Thank you for sharing invitations, posting on Facebook, sticking signs in your yard, and hosting at the events. We are excited for what the Lord has in store for our school and the new families He will bring. If you know of families that weren’t able to come to one of our Open Houses, but are interested in ACA, have them call the office to set up an appointment to visit!


Beginning in April, we are welcoming Barberitos to our lunch menu!! Barberitos will replace Burger Fi on Thursday for lunches. We are very excited about this partnership and they are super excited to work with us to provide lunches for our school. They will provide lunch options like quesadillas, burritos, tacos, salsa, queso, and guacamole. Be sure to purchase lunch orders for April by March 15th at! If you want to go to Barberitos, you can find them in the shopping center on Opelika Road in front of the Mall. 

Bumper Books

This week we had local author, Maggie Cooper, speak at Chapel. She read her book Bumper to our school and talked about the overall lesson of it, that it is more important to look at the heart of others rather than the outward appearance. This is a lesson we all should learn! 

Maggie has offered to sign books for anyone that would like to purchase one. The books are $15 and the money can be turned into the front office. We would love to support her in this way as this is a great book to read to your children! Please let Mrs. Richburg know by responding to this email if you would like to purchase one!
