ACS HEROES - WE ARE THANKFUL FOR YOU!!

Leia Mitchell is one of ACS's unsung heroes. Leia has been working behind the scenes making donations to support our Project Work Gardens. Also, she spent an evening repairing the kindergarten fence where the ties had broken loose. Thank you!!


We have some students who are always going above and beyond around the school to help out. These students help teachers and staff with odd cleaning jobs, have helped take out the trash, organize our lost and found, and recently took on cleaning the dumpster area. 💜
