We need you!!! Elective Help 2nd Trimester
We need volunteers to supervise/teach electives for our 4th-8th grade students. This is a vital part of our program allowing students to enjoy and be introduced to varied experiences.
4th – 8th grade students have electives from 2:00 – 2:55 on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. 4th- 6th grade students have an additional elective 2:00 – 2:55 on Thursday.
Each elective is one day a week for one hour per day. Trimester 2 electives begin December 2nd and go through March 5th.
Some past popular electives and new ideas include: outdoor sports, board games, photography, recycle art, drama, woodworking, gardening, ultimate Frisbee, cooking, special effects makeup, filmmaking/editing, costume design, choir, zumba, foreign language, fun with science, fundraising, roller skating and video game design. We encourage new ideas too!

A note from Mrs. Vela
Our ACA II Experienced and Intermediate Band & String Orchestra students have been invited to perform at our Holiday Tree Fundraiser on Saturday, December 7 at Antioch Charter Academy in their multi-use room. They will perform from about 1:30 – 3:00 pm. Exact performance times will be announced later. Please save December 7 to come listen, shop, snack and enjoy this special event! There will be activities for younger students, so bring the entire family!
Instrumental Music students should be practicing at home!
A friendly reminder for all students in instrumental music: you need to practice your instrument as much as possible! This helps you become a better musician! Please schedule time in your week to practice. All instruments must be taken home from school everyday for students to practice. Please do not leave your instrument at school overnight.
Students received their Weekly Work folders this week. Inside those folders you will find all of their assignments. We will also include the assignments each week in the newsletter just in case.
