Thank you all for coming out to our very first Coyote Museum! We hope you enjoyed it and were able to see how hard our students have been working this past trimester. Our second graders have decided to keep their gift shop going for ACS students this week. More information on items and prices will come in a separate email and your child’s teacher will coordinate with the second grade team regarding shopping days and times. Profits go toward their 3rd trimester project.

COMMITMENT FORM FOR RETURNING FAMILIES
The deadline to complete the Commitment Form that will hold your child's spot for the 2023-24 year was Friday, February 10, 2023. Families that have not completed the form were sent a 3rd email reminder on Wednesday, February 8 and some families were sent a 4th email reminder over the weekend. If you have not received the link to the form, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you were sent an email request between February 8 and February 11 to complete the Commitment Form and you have not yet completed it, please complete the form ASAP to guarantee that your child's spot will be held for them next year. Since your child is already enrolled, it is not necessary for you to reapply. However, we need to know if you plan for your student/s to return to Alamance Community School next year so that we know the number of available spaces for new applicants when we conduct the lottery.
