Hello ACS,                                                                                                 


             Our varsity basketball teams are in Des Moines, Iowa, this week for the National Home School Regional Competitions. They both won their games on Thursday and will play again Friday and Saturday. Please in prayer for their abilities, sportsmanship, and safety. Also, Monday evening at 7 pm will be the Sports Awards night for all of our basketball teams!

            Once again, I would like to remind everyone that the week of testing is the first week in April this year. During this week, students in grades 2-11 will be attending school Monday thru Wednesday in the mornings only. Students in grades K-1 will not be in school at all this week; they will complete their testing earlier during their regular class times. This is also the week beginning our Easter break. Additionally, students in grades 3, 7, and 9 will be completing cognitive testing on Tuesday, March 27, in the morning. We will be sending home more information as the time draws near. However, if you have questions now, please feel free to call the office anytime, 827-4700!           


Parent / Teacher Conferences: I am sorry for any confusion this may have caused! We changed the date in October as soon as we discovered there was a conflict. It has also been posted in the bulletin for the last several weeks. The date change was due to the regional basketball tournament date change. It is no longer Mar 8 and will be Mar 13 at 6 pm. We will be handing out 3rd quarter grade cards at this time also.


State Fair Community College will sponsor a free family connections workshop March 15 on “Today’s Family Food” for adults who are concerned about childhood obesity and diabetes and about what they’re feeding their families. The seminar, designed for parents, grandparents, caregivers and childcare providers, will meet from 6-8 p.m. in Thompson Conference Center A in the Heckart Science and Allied Health Center on the SFCC campus. There is no charge. Registration deadline is March 12. Free childcare will be provided in the Thompson Center. Please call by March 12 to register children. Participants can learn the dos and don’ts of cooking and how to make smart, economical food choices to help children start healthy eating habits. For more information or to register, call Sarah Williams, continuing education coordinator, at (660) 530-5822 or e-mail Registration details are also available at
