    Verse of the day:  Because Your love is better than life, my lips will glorify You.  Psalm 63:3

    I hope everyone is having a restful and enjoyable summer!  Summertime is a busy season for your ACS office staff, and this summer is no exception.  We are busy, busy, busy in the office creating schedules (both teacher and student), reviewing and revising handbooks, and preparing for our big Kick-Off event (Aug. 31 @ 6:30) among other things.  Volleyball and soccer schedulers are busy creating our fall sports schedules, and they will be added to the school calendar as soon as they are made available to us.   The first day of school (Sept. 6 @ 8:00 am) will be here before we know it.  Many of you are utilizing our scheduled office hours (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 10:00 - 3:00), and for that we are incredibly thankful.  Please continue to check the website on a regular basis for all the latest news.  I still plan to publish a bulletin monthly, and I update the school calendar as soon as I get notified of an addition or change to the schedule.  We would covet your prayers as we secure teachers and students for next year.  We pray and trust that the Lord will supply All our needs and bring along just the right people to serve and be served at Applewood Christian School.  I am so thankful for each and every one of you and feel blessed to be a part of the ACS family.         

    Book Fees and Sept. Tuition -   If you have not paid either of these, you must contact the office as soon as possible.  It is necessary that September tuition is paid in June to secure your child's spot in the class for next year.  

    Sports Physicals - Thursday, June 29th from 5:30 - 7:00 pm in the ROC - This is open to any athlete that plans to play any ACS sport next school year.  There is NO CHARGE for these physicals thanks to our very generous physicians that donate their time to ensure ALL of our athletes are healthy and cleared to safely compete.  All athletes in attendance need to bring the following:  completed physical forms and a photo copy of your insurance card.  If your child plans to play volleyball or soccer they may pay their athletic fees that evening as well.  Athletic fees should be given directly to the coach and are as follows:  ACS athletes:  $70   Home school athletes:  $80

    Verse of the day:  The same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on Him.  Romans 10:12

    Iowa Basic Test - Academic Committee decided a few months back to use an updated version of the Iowa Basic standardized tests this year.  ACS had been using the Iowa Basic testing (form A), and this year it was decided to use the Iowa Basic testing (updated form E).  If you are a family that compares your child's results from year to year, please note that it is not recommended that this year's test be compared to last year's test as they are quite different.  The updated version (form E) uses current terminology that our students are more familiar with (ex:  form A still talked about a card cataglog which our students are not familiar with).  The updated version (form E) also tested our students more on their cognitive abilities than the previous form did.  We, as a committee, felt like this was a good move for our school, and I hope our families will agree.  Mrs. Bergman, our testing coordinator, is planning to send home an informative letter outlining all of the differences and benefits of using the updated form.  In the meantime, please contact her if you have any questions or concerns.        

    Academic Committee Update -  Academic Committee works hard to ensure that the needs of our students are met through our curriculum and offer support to our teaching staff.  I am honored to serve as committee member alongside some amazing women that sacrifice time each month to meet and discuss the needs of our school.  We have three members that have served on committee for many many years, but have recently decided through much prayer to pursue other interests.  The committee members that have resigned are as follows:  Debra Church (committee chair), Pam Young, and Malinda Nevils (secretary).  If you see them, be sure to thank them for their years of service.  I would also like to welcome and say a special thank you to Mrs. Kelley Bergman for accepting the committee chairperson position.  Thank you, ladies, for your willingness to serve.        

    Yearbook - If you would like to sponsor a page in the yearbook the cost is $15 per page- Mrs. Otten sent out an email on March 17th with a chart of available pages - Deadline to sponsor a page and/or submit pictures is May 1st.  Please submit any pictures you would like considered for the yearbook to the following address:  https://images.memoryebooks.com/login    Login password is 406703593
