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

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

Mrs. Durbin’s Musings

Thank you all for your swift response to our “Lice Letter” of yesterday.  I have only been made aware of one additional confirmed case (accompanied by immediate treatment) of these bothersome critters.  Please remain vigilant to check your children daily for the next week or so and then weekly from here on.

On another note, we are completing our fifth week of school today.  Mid-semester progress reports will be going out in a couple of weeks to give you a measure of your student’s progress thus far. Remind your student to be diligent in completing assignments and preparing well for assessments.  We want them to be rewarded well for their good efforts!

Niffer’s at the Tracks Spirit Day

Honestly, who really wants to cook dinner on Mondays? 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 on September 25th and grab one of the best burgers in town! Just remember to write ACA on your receipt so that we earn 10%.

Pizza Hut BOOK IT! Program

We want students to learn to read for pleasure (beyond their school assigned reading).  In order to encourage this, we are not only participating in the AUBURN READS program, but we are also participating in the Pizza Hut BOOK IT! program.  Both of these programs give incentives/rewards to students for meeting specific goals.  For each of the upcoming months from October through March, teachers have set reading goals for their classes. October calendars for record-keeping will be sent home with students on September 28, 2017. When your student achieves their monthly goal, have him/her submit their completed calendar to Mrs. Bryant for a reading reward certificate redeemable for a free personal pan pizza at Pizza Hut. Please note that while class reading goals apply to both  AUBURN READS  and BOOK IT! reading incentive programs, students will only be eligible for AUBURN READS recognition by reaching their reading goal every month October- April. Completed reading goal calendars will be accepted no later than the end of the first week of the new month.  Calendars for November through April will be given out by request.

AUBURN READS

Last week, Spirit Night invitations were sent home with Kindergarten through fifth grade students in their weekly folders. Be sure to bring the voucher on the bottom of your invitation. Visit Auburn READS to register for Spirit Night.

The READS Spirit Night is on September 14, 2017 at Auburn Mall Center Court.

  • Encourages students that reading is fun and supports your school’s library.

  • Features fun interactive themed displays and games for students to use their reading skills to win prizes.

Mrs. Durbin’s Musings

We have had a great start to the school year here at ACA, and you parents are to be commended for your efforts to have students comply with our academic and behavioral standards.  We are truly “getting in the groove” just like the front left tire of our cars must when we go through a car wash – “Tire in groove, car in ‘neutral,’ hands off steering wheel.”  One of those grooves we are still finding is with homework.  Some students have established a good homework routine, and others are still moving in that direction.  Just in case your student still needs help “finding the homework groove” these hints may get them organized.

  1. Clarify assignments. Check to be sure students are copying assignments correctly into Planner. (They should copy exactly as instructions are written on white board and not use their own “shorthand”.  If there is concern regarding accuracy of assignment, verify with a classmate or the teacher.)
  2. Determine a specific place to complete work. (e.g. a table or desk for written work to promote good penmanship; a comfortable place for reading that would also allow you to be with them to listen and read with them some of the time)
  3. Consider meaningful rewards for completion of various subjects or portions of difficult subjects (such as an agreed upon number of minutes doing a pleasurable activity AFTER excellent completion of work — correct spelling, neatness, well-formed sentences, etc.).
  4. Have students check their work, and you check behind them. When you carefully check their work when they are young, your students will work more excellently the rest of their lives.  (They will quickly learn that completing work well the first time keeps them from having to re-do it.)
  5. Friday schoolwork idea: Try taking your student to a favorite coffee shop or restaurant that welcomes students.  I remember seeing several students with their parents regularly on Friday mornings at Panera or Burger King or even the University Library.

Again, thank you for a great and “groovy” start to the new school year!  As always, let me know how I can better serve your family.

Blessings,

Robin Durbin

Solar Eclipse

While the upcoming solar eclipse is an exciting event, it has the potential to cause permanent eye damage.  Mrs. Walker will be presenting information regarding the eclipse after lunch (from 12:30-12:45 p.m.) in the lunchroom. All students will be able to see the effects of the eclipse from a distance through the school windows, but only students who have direct permission from a parent will be allowed to go outdoors (with NASA approved glasses) during its occurrence.  For those who go outdoors, Mrs. Walker and other teachers will be supervising those students.  Students who remain indoors with Mrs. Durbin will be graphing light levels as seen through the window of the lunchroom, and they will be completing eclipse-related activities.

Therefore…you must email the ACA office and state that your child (children) by name (or names) has permission to go outdoors during the solar eclipse.

Also, if you plan to check your child out of school to view the eclipse, please email us, too, so that we have appropriate materials (but not too many) for children who will experience the eclipse with us.
 Please know that we are working to be certain we honor your wishes.  Unless we receive email confirmation of your plans by Monday morning at 8:00 a.m.,  your student (s) will remain indoors during the August 21 solar eclipse.

All parents are welcome to come to ACA at lunchtime to hear Mrs. Walker’s presentation and experience the eclipse here with your students, but we may not have enough viewing glasses for you, so please take care to protect your eyes appropriately should you choose to do so.

Additionally, several parents have indicated that they will be traveling to view the eclipse in another place.  Because of the uniqueness of this event, those absences will be “excused”.

Playground

Come be a part of an ACA Playground Work Day from 8:00 a.m. until noon on Saturday, August 19. We need folks of every skill level to complete these tasks; no skill (or lack of skill) is too limiting. We will find a task for every hand — men, women, boys, and girls. The best part of these work days is getting to know other families in our school! Contact Mrs. Durbin (robingdurbin.aca@gmail.com) to let her know you plan to be a part of the day!

1-Install a gate to limit access to the water drainage area
2-Cover and secure the evaporation pond with a water permeable panel
3-Install an outdoor chalkboard on the playground

Physical Education

Thank you to the ACA parents and grandparents that have given their time and particularly their love to our students at P.E. these first two weeks of school. Students are enjoying you being a part of their school day. What wonderful memories you are creating with your own children/grandchildren!

Mrs. Durbin’s Musings

“Rejoice in the Lord always; again, I will say rejoice.” (Philippians 4:4) What an incredible first week of the school year. I am truly rejoicing in the smooth transition students have made from the casualness of summer to the orderliness of school. You parents prepared your children well to don their uniforms, gather supplies, and arrive in a timely manner. Teachers have worked diligently to assure that procedures are taught and abided by from their first moments with students. Congratulations to all of you who have contributed so well to help Auburn Classical Academy begin the year joyfully!

Playground Update:
One of our ACA dads, Robert Griffith, has spearheaded our playground renovation and hard court creation. He led the teachers in a planning project to determine most effective structures, plotted the necessary alterations in soil levels, created lists of supplies, led volunteers in work days, and completed the final construction on the afternoon of our Orientation last week. Also, Mr. Cunningham spent many hours gathering materials and laboring with Mr. Griffith and many of you to have a safe, attractive play area for our students. To Mr. Griffith, Mr. Cunningham, and those of you who have contributed to this project, thank you! While children have enjoyed using the playground and court this first week of school, we do have several additional elements to the playground project that require our attention, and we need your help to complete them.

1-Install a gate to limit access to the water drainage area
2-Cover and secure the evaporation pond with a water permeable panel
3-Install an outdoor chalkboard on the playground
4-Apply stain to the play set.

How can you help? Come be a part of an ACA Playground Work Day from 8:00 a.m. until noon on Saturday, August 19. We need folks of every skill level to complete these tasks; no skill (or lack of skill) is too limiting. We will find a task for every hand — men, women, boys, and girls. The best part of these work days is getting to know other families in our school! (More information will follow in next week’s Column.) Put this event on your calendar, and contact Mrs. Durbin (robingdurbin.aca@gmail.com) to let her know you plan to be a part of the day!

Thank you, Parents.

What an amazing final week of school we have shared. Thank you, parents, for making our last week exceptionally special by showering all of us teachers with cards, pictures, gifts, food, and more food. And did I say food? One of my most challenging decisions as I daily prepare for school is what to take for lunch. The delicious breakfasts and lunches you provided for us were truly a blessing. We were able to concentrate on the student and classroom details that were looming around us. Thank you for such thoughtful acts of kindness.

Thank you, more, for trusting us with your children over the past year. It is with great sadness that I concluded Assembly this morning. The year has been one of evidence of God’s “holding us together” as we moved to our current location and celebrated another moment of maturity as a school. I look forward to seeing how God continues to direct us.

Have a “wonder-full” summer with your families!

Purchases may also be made at http://g4765.myubam.com/ 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.

Final Week of 2016/17

During the final week of school students will be permitted to wear their Thursday uniforms. This means T-Shirt Day all week! On Thursday, May 4th, students may wear athletic shorts and a favorite baseball cap with their ACA t-shirt. As in the past, dismissal is at noon the last day of school. Athletic shorts must be in keeping with our dress standards; no more than 2″ above the knee.

Report Cards

Year-end Report Cards may be picked up on Thursday, May 11th between 9 a.m.-1:00 p.m. A parent MUST pick-up the report card from the office so that you may sign the original to be kept in the student’s file. You will then receive a copy of the original.  Report cards will not be released until we have a signed copy of the final report card for 2016-2017.

If you wish to schedule a parent conference with your child’s teacher(s), please contact the teacher(s) as soon as possible to schedule conference times.
