A Note From The Principal

Happy Thanksgiving

Dear ACS Families,

"I give thanks for all You have done
And I will sing of Your mercy and Your love
Your love is unfailing, Lord I am grateful"

May the words to the chorus of Elevation's song, Grateful, be the song of hearts during this beautiful season of Thanksgiving. To God be the Glory!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Singing his praises,
Principal Brower

Reverse Engineering/Take Apart

1st, 2nd and 3rd graders will be participating in Reverse Engineering activities the weeks of Dec 09 and 16. If you have items to contribute, please bring them to the library by Thursday, Dec 05, 2019.

We are looking for small items that the students will be taking apart and recreating into a new piece. This may include: 

  • Small non-working appliance that can fit in the lap of a 1st grader
  • Old radio
  • CD player
  • DVD player
  • Old phone (not a cell phone)
  • Game controller
  • Old toy (wind-up toys are great)
  • Keyboard

Please do not bring: 

  • Items with glass
  • Computers
  • Cell Phones
  • Anything too large (best if it can fit in the child's lap)

Please be sure that you can see a starting point, like a screw or open space where you could easily begin to disassemble the piece. We are not looking to “break apart” but take apart.

If you have tools that you would feel comfortable lending or donating for use by small children, please clearly label them in a container. See below:
