Calendar News…

We are starting off the year with great intentions to make better use of our Google calendar to keep you up to date on what’s happening here at ACC. You will notice an “Upcoming Events” sidebar on the left side of our school webpage as well as a link under the “About ACC” tab at the top right to the full calendar. It’s still a work in progress but it’s started. This year’s open house date/time is posted there (Instead of just telling you the date, I’m going to make you look for it to get used to the calendar!). If you are tech-y, you can even import the google calendar to your own electronic calendar with just a few clicks!

This year you can enter by submitting a paper copy or even easier (for you and us) complete the online form and follow the payment instructions provided.

Spring is officially here…updates

Well folks, we are into the last three months of school!

  • With Spring officially here, and warmer temperatures coming soon, we are noticing some wetter, muddier and thus, smellier, mittens and snowpants – so please try to wash them as needed and keep our halls smelling fresh!
  • With wet feet too, it might be good to have an extra pair of socks stored in backpacks!
  • Lost and found items, from this winter, will be on display this week in the old library computer lab.  Please come see if any are yours!  Unclaimed items will be donated.
  • Lastly, we remind parents that April is full of 4 day school weeks- due to PD days and the Easter Break- so please make arrangements accordingly!
