Dear ACS Families,
Many thanks to all of the staff and families that donated to our Giving Tree! Our front office was overflowing this week with presents for our students in need. We truly appreciate your kindness and generosity!! Don’t forget that our winter break is from December 19 - January 2 (January 2 is a required workday for staff). The first day back for students is Tuesday, January 3rd.
I hope everyone has a safe, fun, and restful holiday/winter break!
