Daddy-Daughter Dance and Dress Code

We have a lot of girls looking forward to the Daddy Daughter Dance! It is a special night, indeed. This note is simply to serve as a reminder that we ask students to dress in accordance with our dress code at school sponsored events. This includes the length of dresses and the need for sleeves (no tank or spaghetti straps without a jacket or sweater). Thank you for your support.

This club is for girls, 3rd-8th grade who would like to learn how to pitch for fastpitch softball. We will meet for 6 weeks on Tuesdays from 3:00-4:00pm, beginning Feb 16 in the north gym.  Fill out and bring this form (198 KB DOCX) to the office to sign up.

Moms in Prayer

Please join us Thursday 8:00-9:00am in the office conference room as we pray for our children, their teachers and the ACS community. This week we will be praying specifically for the Administration, School Board, Front Office Staff and Volunteers. We will remember that God is awesome.

Fear the Lord your God and serve him. Hold fast to him and take your oaths in his name. He is the one you praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes.

-Deuteronomy 10:20-21
