A Note From The Principal
Centered On Christ
This particular theme/banner is the core of our mission and the work we do at Ada Christian.
Unfortunately, the longer something hangs in an area, the more it tends to blend into the wall and goes unnoticed. Thankfully, more and more people have been able to volunteer in our building and have noticed various items.
I wonder if we take the time to look at the important messages that surround us every day? Do we pause to reflect on what it means to live a life that is centered on Christ?
Spring is busy with a lot of events, great weather, ending of a school year, and beginning of the summer months. No matter what the season or what the event, be sure to reflect on each moment to know and understand that our lives are a testimony to the goodness of God.
When: Friday’s at 8:00am
Where: Brody’s BE Café
What: Man in the Mirror book review
Who: ACS dads
Why: To be in community with other fathers of ACS students and grow deeper in Christ.

Moms In Prayer
This week we’re praying for our 7th graders and their teachers.
God is Worthy — One who has worth or value; honorable, admirable
Scripture: "Lord, may we live a life worthy of You and please You in every way: bearing fruit in every good work and growing in the knowledge of God." - Colossians 1:10
We’re a group of Moms passionate about lifting up our kids and ACS faculty and staff in prayer — we pray every Thursday, 8:00-9:00am, in the front office. If you have any questions, give me a call (Kelly, 616.304.2963)
Now You Know
As weather warms up please review our school dress code policy regarding tank tops, shorts and flip flops.

Parents Night Out - May 20
Hey parents, if you’re looking for a night out and have K-4 students, the 8th Grade Class is having an event to raise money for their class trip.
Parents’ Night Out will take place on May 20, from 5:30-8:30pm. You can drop off your kids in the gym lobby between 5:30 and 6:00pm. We will have the gyms and commons open where your kids will enjoy a variety of games and fun led by the 8th graders. We will not be providing a snack, but if you would like your child to have one, please send one labeled with your child and we will have a safe location for it.
If you are interested, please fill out this form by Wed, May 18 so we can plan accordingly. There is no set price but donations are appreciated at the door. We will accept cash, check or card.
