Grad Photo Retakes – Lifetouch has offered to come back for a retake of the grad photos since there were issues with some portraits. They will be here on Thursday, May 9. In some cases, we would have hoped that the photographer would have taken more care to catch a great shot. But to be honest, in other cases some students did not take the process very seriously and that may be why some pictures are not grad-photo worthy. Since we are getting the opportunity for retakes, we are asking the students to also take the opportunity seriously. I’m sure you will join us in reminding your son or daughter of that when the day approaches. If you prefer the original picture over the retake, you can still choose to order the original. The most recent picture (regardless of quality) is the one that is used for the composite that you have the opportunity to post. We don’t post the composite in the school – just the more casual “anchor photo”. The “anchor photo” may or may not be taken on May 9th – it will depend on the weather.

ACC is Going to the Movies!
Posted on March 31, 2019 by rfgallant
We’re going to the movies! On Friday, April 5th, we will be taking all the students to see the new Dumbo movie at Cineplex Studios in Summerside. Our buses will depart at approximately 11am and return around 2:30pm. Because of that early departure, we will not be having pizza that day. Please pack a lunch they can eat early and if they are ordering popcorn, you may want to make it a light lunch. Thanks to previous fundraising efforts, the movie and transportation will be paid by us. If your child would like a snack during the show, they will need to purchase it in advance but it is not necessary – they can go without a snack if you wish. Prices range from $6 to $9.75. No outside snacks can be brought into the theatre. The easiest way to order a snack is through the HotLunches website. In addition to the current lunch schedule, you will see a schedule called “Movie Theatre Snacks for Friday, April 5th”. There are 3 size options available and you must also select a drink from the options provided. We will not be allowing children to take any leftovers back with them as we do not want the mess on the bus so please just order the size they can consume there. If you do not use HotLunches (this would be a good time to start) you can order through a memo that will be sent home on Monday. Movie snack orders must be placed no later than Wednesday at noon. Late orders will have to be turned down as we need to have certain things arranged in advance. At this time we are not putting a request out for chaperones; we may have enough staff to cover the activity (the theatre does not provide any free chaperone admission so we have to be respectful of the total cost). If that changes, we will contact you. You can watch a trailer of the show here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpeXbM5Xw9Q

Our Grade 7 and 8 students will be travelling to Charlottetown on Wednesday, Nov. 28 to participate in the following event.

Arts Discovery Days is a project of Confederation Centre of the Arts in partnership with the PEI Department of Education, Early Learning and Culture. On each day, 3 different classes of Grade 8 students visit the Confederation Centre of the Arts, where they will experience workshops in movement, drama, and visual arts. These “hands-on” sessions will be tied into the grade 8 Social Studies curriculum, focusing on the concept of Canadian Identity.
