BEING THERE EXPERIENCE-JELLY BELLY FACTORY TOUR
Our next Being There Experience is going to be a tour of the Jelly Belly Factory in Fairfield.
All students will come to school at 8:15, Drivers at 8:30.
We will leave ACA at 9:00.
We will be doing the factory tour, and then having lunch.
We will return to ACA around 1:30.
Next Wednesday, March 8, is our Mini-Showcase for the 2nd trimester Wednesday Enrichment classes. Parents are invited to come watch in the multi-use room at ACA. The showcase for family and friends begins at 1:00, and goes until 2:00.
Students who are in the groups A1, B1, C2, and D1 should wear their Wednesday shirts and will be performing their Native American Dances.
Students who are in the groups K, A2, B2, C1, and D2 should wear the clothing that is specified on the paper that came home and will be performing their musical numbers.
BOOK FAIR VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
It’s that time of year again!!! Parent volunteers are needed and in high demand. The book fair is something that the students look forward to each year, but can not happen unless we have lots of parent help. Please take time to look at the form that came home with your student. Please return the form to school if you are able to help, even a little bit of help is beneficial.
LOTTERY FOR 2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR
If you have or know someone that has a student that wants to be enrolled at ACA, the applications for the lottery for next school year are due by Monday, March 6.
We have enrollment space for:
Transitional Kindergarten-students turning 5 between September and December. Kindergarten-students turning 5 before September.
We also re randomize the waiting list for the 1st thru 8th grades.
All incoming siblings do get preference, and will be moved to the top of the list, but they must first be in the lottery to get on the list. All siblings MUST fill out an application and return it to the office by Monday, March 6, in order to be included in the lottery.
Siblings who do not turn in an application, and are not in the lottery, will not be given a priority placement next year, and will be placed at the bottom of the wait list.
