Ada Connection – May 15, 2019

A Note From Principal Brower

Vested In Student Safety 


If you have picked students up after school recently, you have noticed some orange "vested" friends caring for the safety of children. We have increased the number of teachers and administrators on duty after school to help with parking lot safety during the busy pick-up time between 3:00 and 3:15.

How can you help?

  • Only use the pick-up loop if you have kindergarten students, and do not exit your car. If you must park, please use the parking lot.
  • Please pick students up before 3:15. All students not picked up by then will be asked to wait in the school lobby.
  • Please enforce our rule that students may not play on the playground without parent/adult supervision. 
  • Remind students to keep their feet on the ground -- no climbing on trees, flagpoles, light poles, snow piles, etc…
  • Ask students to keep their feet on the cement and out of our landscaping where plants are trying to grow.
  • Encourage students not to play tag or other similar games by the flagpole -- their excitement and momentum can sometimes carry them into the parking lot which is dangerous.

Thank you for your help!

Moms In Prayer – Praying for 7th Grade

Praying for our seventh graders and their teachers. God is righteous: One who is just, true, honorable, blameless, upright.

"You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness." - Ephesians 4:22-24

Come join us for the journey when you can. We meet every Thursday morning 8:00-9:00am, in the ACS office back conference room. 

Need more information? Contact Kelly Stafford (616.304.2963, ).

Action Needed

From the Library

At the end of the school year, we take inventory of every book on the shelves in the library. In order to complete that task by the end of the school year, the last day to check out books will be Friday, May 17. All books must be returned by Friday, May 24. After that date, lists will be sent home with students who have overdue books.

Direct Your Dollars

Direct Your Dollars
Do you have Forest Hills Foods, D & W, Ada Market or Family Fare receipts to submit for our Direct Your Dollars campaign? We are less than $11,000 away from our next $1,000 check. Please get your receipts in so that we can celebrate our next milestone. 100% of the money goes directly to benefit our students and support our staff through the PTO. No receipt is too small to help us get to our goal.
