Unfortunately, there was a mixup within Lifetouch and the photographer didn’t show up today. We are working on re-scheduling as soon as possible and will let you know when a new date is selected. Sorry for the inconvenience – the kids looked great!
To celebrate Halloween here at ACC, the leadership group will be organizing lots of events! Here is a list of what will be taking place.
Pumpkin Carving Contest! Students will bring their pumpkins on the morning of the 31st or someone can drop them off to the school before 10am. There will be a prize given out for best pumpkin for each grade, and there is a special prize for most creative in the school.All Pumpkins will have to picked up by 3pm on October 31st, or they will be thrown out.
Costume Contest! We will also be hosting a costume contest the same day. Students are encouraged to dress up in their costumes for school. In each class a winner will be chosen for the best costume and a student will also win most creative overall (out of the whole school).
Haunted Change Room! We are also having the Haunted Change Room this year. It is the choice of the student as to whether or not they want to participate. For those who do not wish to participate, we will have a colouring station available. Kindergarteners will be going through with the lights on :)
Dance! For the last 20-30 minutes of the day, the school will be going down to the gym for a school dance. There will be stations set up around the gym for students who don’t want to dance, like Limbo, Coloring, and Hoola Hoops.
Happy Halloween from ACC Leadership!
As previously mentioned on our website and Facebook page, we are pleased to be able to take our Grade 5, 6, 7, and 8 students on a guided tour of the wetland area beside the beach road. Members of the South Shore Watershed Association will facilitate the morning session. Students will be bused over shortly after arriving at school. After approximately two hours at the site, we will walk back to school in the late morning. Please be advised that students should dress warmly (with something that can break the wind) for over two hours outside. Though it is forecast to be sunny, the morning temperature could be as low as 5 to 7 degrees. Rubber boots would likely be a good choice of footwear (not mandatory but strongly suggested). We also suggest packing a snack that is easy to carry and eat outside (like a granola bar). Our long term plan is to continue taking students each year (in approximately grade 4 or 5) so that eventually everyone gets this opportunity at least one time while at ACC.
