We are blessed to have families that take opportunities to pour out love for the faculty at ACA. This week many of you have gone above and beyond. The breakfasts that have been brought in this past week have been a much appreciated treat that we have been able to enjoy throughout the day. Thank you for taking time from your own hectic schedules to plan and set up breakfast for us!
CHRISTMAS PROGRAM AND RECEPTION Tonight
We invite you and your family to join us at Covenant Presbyterian Church, 445 Shelton Mill Road, Auburn,this evening at 6:00 for a wonderful time of Christmas celebration among our ACA families. The Christmas program will be held in the sanctuary. Students have enjoyed preparing this Christmas presentation and are excited to share it with you! Following the presentation we will gather in the fellowship hall to partake in desserts, coffee and hot chocolate.
We ask for students to come dressed in their Wednesday chapel attire. Please have your students in their seats in the front of the Covenant sanctuary by 5:30 that evening. Students will be dismissed to their parents in the Fellowship hall prior to going through the dessert line (with their families).
Registration for Spring semester sewing club is now open. Please contact Mrs. Lombardo should you have questions.
Monday, December 11, is the last day to place orders for January 2018. Visit https://www.mymealorder.com/ to create a free account, choose meals and submit your order. Please see the detailed email that was sent out to families on November 14th for instructions on how to use this new system.
Our yearbook will be finalized in the last weeks for January. Special care is taken to represent each class in the yearbook. In order for this to happen, photos from class events are needed. If you have taken photos of class or school events please consider sharing those for the yearbook. Photos can be uploaded to LINK , a portal for our yearbook community. It is a site that links parents, and teachers to our yearbook project. LINK offers the team of volunteers designing the yearbook an efficient method of gathering and placing photos.
JINGLE BELL MINGLE
Who’s ready for ACA’s 3rd Annual Jingle Bell Mingle?! We will once again be having piano concerts (with some additions) at area retirement homes featuring our talented ACA students. This year we would love to possibly add a group to sing Christmas Carols and have our students who play string instruments, or other instruments join in! We usually color and take Christmas cards for the residents and they all really seem appreciative! Contact Mrs. Hayes via email, in your family directory, to volunteer. WHO PLAYS AN INSTRUMENT!?! WHO HAS THE VOICE OF AN ANGEL!?! Mrs. Hayes is looking at the following dates for these events: (ALL in Dec.) 10th, 16th, 17th and/or 19th. How many we do will depend on involvement. Time commitment is about 1.5 hours start to finish. Times can be worked out to meet the needs of the majority! WHO CAN SING!?! YOU KNOW YOU CAN!!! Singing isn’t just for in the shower, folks!!! Come on, join us in making the holidays merry for those who are often the loneliest in our community! Mrs. Hayes is in contact with the communities and will share the exact dates and times ASAP! Be watching!
