Verse of the day: I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with the Lord's holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ. Ephesians 3:17-18
Welcome New Students - We have added two new students to our ACS family. Eden Herren has joined our Kindergarten class and is the younger sister of Eli Herren.

Please help them feel welcome as they navigate these new waters.

Honor Roll Recognition - We will recognize and celebrate the academic excellence of our honor roll students on Monday, January 9th during opening. Parents are always welcome to attend.
Security System - An email was sent out Tuesday afternoon notifying all families of our newly implemented security system that went into effect on January 4th. Students and teachers are adjusting nicely, and we are happy to have our system up and running. Parents, please remember that you will now need to check in at the glass window once inside the foyer to be buzzed in past the wooden doors. Please feel free to contact the school office if you have any questions.
Tuition Reminder - Please remember that tuition is due on or before the 10th of each month
Science Projects - 3rd quarter is set aside for science projects. This means that it is acceptable for science teachers to assign regularly scheduled science homework in addition to the science project work. Check with your child as teachers will be sending home their expectations, deadlines, and important information for this year's projects.
Tardy/Absent - Historically, 3rd quarter is the toughest because its cold outside, days are grey, and the end of school just seems so far away; consequently, this is the time of year when we see an increase in tardies. I encourage us all (my family included) to really focus on getting to school on time so we can all avoid tardy troubles.
