Musings

Thanksgiving Day is upon us and with it a reminder of the sacrifices made by the European Pilgrims and the Indigenous Americans as they sought to encourage one another after the fruitful harvest of 1621.  Although a custom of gathering with family and friends had spread through the American colonies, George Washington, in 1789, proclaimed November 26 as an official day of Thanksgiving.  His words bear remembering.

“Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor …now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th of November next to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks for his kind care and protection of the people of this country…”

Have a wonderful time of Thanksgiving!

December Dress Code

For the weeks following Thanksgiving break, November 27th – December 14th, with the exception of Chapel Day, students may wear their ACA T-Shirts, ACA Sweatshirts, or Christmas shirts with blue jeans and tennis shoes! (Jeggings and/ or boots are not permitted.)

Bring Your Bible to School Week

We at ACA want our students to appreciate the truths of the Bible.  Throughout next week during Morning Assembly, students will have an opportunity to share their favorite Bible verses. If they choose, students may read specific verses from their Bibles, or they may recite verses from memory. Teachers have encouraged  students to consider verses to share. Would you please ask your child/children if they would like to participate in this activity?  Remember, this is completely optional.

School Photographs

School pictures are next Wednesday morning, immediately following Chapel. We are still in need of an extra set of hands for a few hours to assist with straightening uniforms, hair and making certain that sweet faces are clean and picture perfect.

October calendars for record-keeping were sent home with students today. When your student achieves their monthly goal, have him/her submit the completed calendar to Mrs. Bryant for a reading reward certificate redeemable for a free personal pan pizza at Pizza Hut.

Hurricane Harvey Donations

Trinity Classical School in Houston, Texas, is a partner school with The Highlands Latin School in Louisville, Kentucky, just like we are. Since several of you mentioned that you would like to offer an opportunity for ACA students to reach out to a school affected by one of the recent hurricanes, Mrs. Durbin contacted one of those schools which shares our values and vision.  Monetary gifts can be made here – Online Gift Form. Simply put “Harvey Assistance” in the memo line and that money will be used directly for affected families. Other ideas of gifts are generic Visa gift cards (for furniture and home item replacements), grocery store gift cards (HEB or Kroger are the most common stores in Houston), or home improvement store gift cards (such as Lowe’s or Home Depot). Scrip gift card orders for Trinity Classical School can be sent to the attention of Mrs. Deist through next Thursday.

If you or your student would like to make a monetary gift or gift card contribution to assist Trinity Classical School families, please bring it to Mrs. Durbin by Thursday, September 28, at the close of school.  She will compile a package for the families including messages and notes from our students.  (Please note in the text above that you may opt to give online through the site listed above.)

Mrs. Durbin’s Musing:  See You at the Pole!

At ACA we pray.  We pray in Assembly.  We pray at lunch.  We pray in meetings.  We pray with teachers.  We pray with students.  We pray with parents.  We pray in Latin.  We pray in English.  We pray in songs.  Next Wednesday, September 27, ACA students will pray at our flag pole!  “See You at the Pole” began as an opportunity for students, teachers, and parents to gather outside of a school building before the opening of a school day to go before the Lord with praise, thanksgiving, and petitions.

Next Monday and Tuesday, ACA students and teachers (and parents) will be encouraged to submit written prayer praises and requests by placing them in a green box on the piano.  Entries can be anonymous.  I will compile those prayer requests for us to pray through on Wednesday morning at the flag pole.

In terms of the logistics of getting to the flag pole, students and teachers will follow their standard procedures for arrival at school and coming to Chapel.  Once all persons have gathered, we will proceed by classes to the flag pole in front of our school building.  My hope is that we will provide our students with yet another instance of great ways and places to pray.

Parents, we would love for you to join us!  Feel free to bring siblings.  See you at the ACA flag pole next Wednesday!

 

Niffer’s at the Tracks Spirit Day

Niffer’s at the Tracks (Opelika) has generously offered to host an ALL DAY spirit day for ACA. Head on over there for lunch or after school next Monday, September 25th and grab one of the best burgers in town! Just remember to write ACA on your receipt so that we earn 10%.

 

PE Volunteers

Registration for October P.E. volunteers has been posted. There are only a few spots available. Also, our volunteer for next Thursday has an unexpected business obligation that conflicts with the P.E. schedule. If you are available next Thursday, September 28th please email Mrs. Bryant.

Mrs. Durbin’s Musings

I cannot imagine the devastation suffered by the families in the Houston area due to Hurricane Harvey and now the south Florida area due to Hurricane Irma.  In addition, I cannot comprehend the challenge of overseeing a school which has been so severely affected by these storms.  Trinity Classical School in Houston, Texas, is a partner school with The Highlands Latin School in Louisville, Kentucky, just like we are. Since several of you mentioned that you would like to offer an opportunity for ACA students to reach out to a school affected by one of the recent hurricanes, I attempted to contact one of those schools which shares our values and vision.  I heard back from Ms. Catha Jaynes.  Please read her message below:

Dear Mrs. Durbin,

We appreciate your thoughtfulness in reaching out to us. Your voicemail was very kind. We have approximately 20 families that have lost their homes or will have extensive repairs due to flooding. We appreciate any continued prayer support for those families, especially for the children who are probably the most affected by this circumstance.

Regarding specific needs, we have set up an account for financial donations for these families. Monetary gifts can be made here – Online Gift Form. Simply put “Harvey Assistance” in the memo line and that money will be used directly for affected families. Other ideas of gifts are generic Visa gift cards (for furniture and home item replacements), grocery store gift cards (HEB or Kroger are the most common stores in Houston), or home improvement store gift cards (such as Lowe’s or Home Depot). Gift cards can be mailed to: Trinity Classical School, 7941 Katy Freeway #110Houston, TX 77024-1924.

Again, we are so grateful for your offer of support. Thank you for reaching out to us.

 

Sincerely,

Catha Jaynes

Administrative Director &

Admissions Coordinator

Trinity Classical School

If you or your student would like to make a monetary gift or gift card contribution to assist Trinity Classical School families, please bring it to Mrs. Durbin by Thursday, September 21, at the close of school.  I will compile a package for the families including messages and notes from our students.  (Please note in the text above that you may opt to give online through the site listed above.)
