    Verse of the Day: The Lord is my light and my salvation - whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life - of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1

    Hello, Applewood families!  Summer is quickly wrapping up.  I hope everyone has enjoyed their summer.  We have been working in the office to prepare for the upcoming school year.  Unfortunately, our school phone line is still down.  The school board has approved for the installation of a new phone service.  Once it is up and running, I will let you know.  The plan is for it to be back in service by the first day of school.  In the meantime, feel free to reach out to us through email or on our cell phones.  I am looking forward to another great year!  

    Teacher Needs 2018/2019- We are in need of a teacher for 8th grade Physical Science, 9th grade Themes in Literature and Spanish I, 10th grade World Literature, 11th American Literature, and high school P.E.  Please join us in prayer as we seek God's perfect will for our school and our students.  If you, or someone you know, are interested in teaching please contact Mrs. Greer or I.

    School Supply List- Mrs. Otten emailed the updated school supply lists a couple weeks ago.  Please remember to put your student's name on all of their belongings.  Also, when bringing in things like paper towels, Anywhere spray, Expo spray, etc. please write your last name and 2018 on each item. Labeling items in this way helps to keep an accurate inventory on what we use each year. 

    One Call List - I have added new families to our One Call list and updated other families contact information.  If you are not signed up and would like to receive text messages through One Call, please test the word 'Alert' to 22300. 

    Fall Sports- Soccer and volleyball practices are well underway!  All sports fees need to be paid to the coach before the first game.  Sports fees are as follows: ACS athletes - $70, home school athletes - $80 (*please note:  soccer athletes have an additional fee of $12 for socks). The soccer boys have their first home game Friday, August 24 at 5 p.m. at the Paul Clover soccer field.  The volleyball girls have a home tri-match on Friday, August 24 at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. in the ROC gym. Come out and cheer on our mighty Mustangs!   

    Basketball Intent- If your student is interested in playing junior high or high school basketball this year please contact our Athletic Director, Scott Young. 

    Parent Jobs- Thank you for being patient as we updated our Parent Jobs list.  If you have not signed up for your jobs please do so now.  Jobs are going fast!  Once all families have signed up, we will open up the remaining jobs for those interested in serving in additional areas.  Thank you for working tirelessly with us to provide such wonderful opportunities for our students! 

    Hot Lunch Coordinator- At this time, we do not have a Hot Lunch Coordinator for the upcoming school.  If this position is not filled, we will not be offering hot lunches on Wednesdays and Fridays.  If you are interested in knowing more about this position, please contact the school for more information.  The person doing this job would be overseeing the planning, preparing, and serving of meals alongside the senior class.  

    Family Club Treasurer- Our Family Club is looking for a treasurer.  If you are interested, please contact Jennifer Bessert, Family Club President.

    New Family Orientation- August 23rd @ 5:30 p.m. - All new families are encouraged to attend.

    Kick-Off- August 30th @ 6:30 p.m. in the ROC gym. It is very important that ALL families plan to be in attendance.  We continue to work hard to ensure all forms are completed and all information given in a timely manner so families don't feel like they're here all night.

    Verse of the day:  How precious to me are Your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them.  Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand.  Psalm 139:17-18

    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.  We covet your prayers for safe travels and good health while we are there.  Also be in prayer that the hearts and minds of those we are ministering to would be open to hearing the word of God.  

    School Board Meeting - The school board is working on rescheduling the next board meeting.   

    Drama Update - Thank you to all who came and auditioned this past Monday for this year's drama production; it's sure to be another great performance.  Mrs. Leon and Mrs. Nevils plan to post the cast on Monday, February 19th.  The first scheduled rehearsal is Friday, February 23rd at which time all fees are due.  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.
