Verse of the Day: How great you are, Sovereign Lord!  There is no one like you, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears.  2 Samuel 7:22

Family Club: This spring, in May, Family Club will be electing new officers for the positions of President and Secretary.  These volunteer positions earn 5 parent points each.  If you are interested in knowing more information or would like to be considered for the position, please reach out to the office or current Family Club President, Jennifer Bessert.  

Scrip Earnings: Just a quick reminder, that the scrip earnings cut off is April 30.  Each family is required to earn $50 in scrip for Family Club.  If you prefer not to participate in scrip, you can choose the buyout option.  If you choose the buyout option, plan to pay the $50 to ACS Family Club no later than May 10.  If you have any questions regarding your scrip earnings, feel free to reach out to Natalie Smith, Scrip Coordinator.

Septagon Construction Career Day: April 5 - Septagon Construction is holding a career day at the Mathewson Exhibition Center from 9 am to 2 pm.  Fliers were sent home with all high school students.  Registration is available online at  If students plan to attend, it will count as an absence and they will be responsible to get their homework ahead of time and turn it in when they return.

High School Plan Night: April 11 - All 8th through 11th graders are strongly encouraged to attend plan night.  Plan night is designed to communicate with families regarding preparing for graduation and college/career options following graduation.  Plan night also gives students the opportunity to choose classes for the upcoming school year. We ask that at least one parent attend with their student.  To make good use of each family's time, Plan Night will look a little differently than it has in previous years.  Each family should plan for approximately one hour of total time for the evening.  The schedule for the evening is as follows: 6:00 -  9th & 10th grades meet in Sanctuary for presentation; 6:30 -  9th & 10th grades meet with administration in CEL Awana Room/Cafeteria; 6:30 - 11th & 12th grades meet in Sanctuary for presentation; 7:00 - 11th & 12th grades meet with administration in CEL Awana Room/Cafeteria.  If your family is unable to attend, please let administration know ASAP.
