From Oct. 24-28, everyone who brings in a pair of pajamas to donate gets to participate in our school wide pajama day on Oct. 28. We specifically need NEW pajamas size 8-14 for boys and girls. There will be bins at the end of each hallway for drop off.

ACS Foundation Dinner—Nov 21

Love Does
We’re looking forward to hearing from best-selling author Bob Goff speaking about his book, Love Does. Bob is an entertaining, engaging speaker who passionately tells stories of the impact of love in our world. He’s an attorney, founder of an international organization “Restore International” and professor at Pepperdine Law School.

Another highlight of this year’s dinner is the presentation of the Distinguished Service Award to Duke and Sue Suwyn, long-time ACS and ACS Education Foundation supporters.

We offer table sponsorships (tables of eight) and individual tickets. Parents, grandparents and friends of ACS are encouraged to join us for this very enjoyable event at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel on Nov 21.

Questions? Contact Dan Day (616.676.1289 ext. 104, ).

The Keycard will be available for $25. Find out just how many places it can be used. Stop by the office to buy yours any time between now and Christmas break. 

Only $25 for $100’s of dollars in savings and an opportunity to help our music department.

Meals For The Rauch Family 

The Rauch family has several students at ACS and Teresa, the mom, has been diagnosed with ALS. Outside of coveting your prayers, the family could really use meals.
