ACS Weekly Newsletter - 11/22/2022

Dear Families,

HOLIDAY GIVING TREE

In the spirit of helping others during the holidays, ACS is sponsoring a Holiday Giving Tree for some of our families in need. Beginning on December 2nd, you may come into the front office and take a tag or two off the tree. Each tag contains a few clothing items or small toy ideas for some of our students. Please bring the items to the office by December 9th so our families have time to pick them up before the winter break. Thank you for your generosity!

LUNCH REMINDERS

  • If you need to drop off a lunch for your child, it must be brought to the office by 11:30am for all grade levels, so that we can make sure it is delivered to their lunch baskets before lunch begins.
