Verse of the day:  May Your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in You.  Psalm 33:22

Mission Trip - Amy and I are both travelling to Haiti on a mission trip from March 4th – 11th.  Should any issues arise while we are gone that need immediate attention, please contact the following:  Kelley Bergman (all academic related issues) - Kim Mabry (all non-academic related issues).  We will be happy to address all non-emergent issues/concerns when we return.  There will not be a bulletin published on Friday, March 9th  

Drama Production - If you have not yet paid drama fees, please do so today - This year's fees are as follows:  Crew only ($15.00)  Cast ($40.00)  There is still a need for a parent volunteer(s) to supervise kids that need to stay after school until rehearsals begin at 4:00. If there are not volunteers then students will need to be picked up at 3:00 and then return at the start of rehearsal, so please be praying about how you could help.  Contact Katelynn Nevils, (660) 287-1681, if you are willing to help out or have any questions.   

New K - 8 PE Teacher - Mr. Miller was unable to finish the school year as our K - 8 PE and 8th grade study hall teacher.  Mr. Hill will be subbing for Mr. Miller next week in our absence.  We have hired a new teacher, Crystal Cox, that will begin on March 12th, so please join me in making her feel welcome to our ACS family.

Field Trip Opportunity - Ms. Kasey Blake, 2010 Applewood graduate, is currently serving our country in the United States Air Force.  She has reached out to me with a special invitation for our high school students, their parents, and teachers.  She is offering to give a tour of Whiteman Air Force Base which would include a tour of the flight line.  We are hoping to tour after our clean up is finished on May 11th.  It will take Kasey at least 60 days to get clearance for all that plan to be in attendance.  As a result, the deadline to sign up for this field trip will be Friday, March 9th.  Anyone wishing to attend MUST submit the following to the school office NO LATER than Friday, March 9th:  Copy of driver's license, permit, or non-driver's license; Copy of social security card;  *under 16 without picture ID - must submit a copy of birth certificate as well as copy of social security card; If retired military - Kasey needs name, rank, and clearance level at retirement;  If planning to drive - Kasey needs make, model, color, license number, and state of registration - carpooling is preferred to keep number of civilian cars on base to a minimum - Again, this is for high school students, parents, and teachers only.  Younger siblings will not be able to go on this field trip.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
