Seeking Host Families for 2019-2020 School Year

We have a host of new families to welcome to ACS.  Would you consider being a host family for the upcoming school year? As a host family you will introduce yourself to an assigned family that has a child entering the same grade as yours. We encourage you to welcome them, serve as a resource for them and attend the Ice Cream Social on Wednesday, August 28th (the first Wednesday after school starts). This event is hosted by the ACS Promotions Committee to welcome all kindergarten families and new families at ACS.

Volunteer to be a host family.

Got Shoes? Give Shoes!

Students will soon be cleaning out their lockers. If your child has outgrown their gym shoes this year, please instruct them to place them in a collection box in their hallway when they clean out their locker. Boxes will be placed in each hallway and the front lobby to collect the gym shoes which will then be donated to Baxter Community Center. Thank you.
