    Season of Thanks - With Thanksgiving upon us I am often asked what I am thankful for.  I am thankful for many things and among them is my ACS family (students, parents, and staff).  It is truly an honor to serve alongside you!  During this season, I encourage you to look around and take inventory of the many blessings in your own life.  Be sure to acknowledge those that you are thankful for; share a kind word with the special people in your life and let them know you are blessed by them.  I challenge you to encourage your child to share what they are thankful for, perhaps have them write an encouraging note to their teacher.  Let's Be Purposeful Together!

    Thanksgiving and Christmas Programs - Traditionally Dharma Leon coordinates our Thanksgiving and Christmas programs.  As all of you know, Mrs. Leon is undergoing chemotherapy for *** cancer and will be unable to lead our students this year in these programs.  Mrs. Jamie Groshart has felt led to step up and coordinate these programs in Mrs. Leon's absence.  The Thanksgiving program will include our K - 5th grade, and the Christmas program will be performed by our K - 8th grade students.  Because Mrs. Groshart works and will be unable to be here 3 days a week, we will be restructuring K - 8 specials through the end of the semester.  Once I finalize the new schedule, I will send a copy home with students so parents will have the latest information.  Dates to Remember:  The Thanksgiving program will be performed right before lunch on November 22nd by our K - 5th grade students.  K-8th grade students will perform our Christmas program on December 12th @ 6:30 pm.  There are two Christmas dress rehearsals scheduled for December 8th and 11th.  Please don't hesitate to visit with Mrs. Groshart if you have any questions.

    Parent Jobs - We are planning to open up the Parent Job List sometime this week.  Once we open it up, we will send out a One Call to let you know it is opened.  Remember, jobs are given on a first come first serve basis, so it will be important to sign up as soon as they are available.  Please only sign up for the required 3 points until each family has had an opportunity to get signed up.  When all families have signed up, we will open it up to anyone that is willing to sign up for more than 3 points.  We invite you to begin praying now about how God would use you to serve Him at ACS.  A special 'thank you' to each family for your sacrificial service.  You are appreciated!!
