VOLUNTEERING AT ACAII
Parent involvement is an integral part of the mission of ACA II. From the inception of our
school, parents at ACA II have given countless hours to ensure the continued success of our
program. ACA II relies on parent volunteers to assist in the development and ongoing success of our program. Families are encouraged to donate 40 hours of volunteer time per school year.
We are beginning to form teams to work on some of our biggest and best events. ACA II would love your help and there are even jobs that can be done from home! Consider joining one of these teams to get those volunteer hours in while helping put together memorable events for our school.
Walkathon- Generally takes place around the end of March. This is one of our schools biggest fundraisers which supports or General Fund.
Family Formal- April 3: This is our schools take on the traditional mother/son, father/daughter dance. This social event was a hit last year and we would love to continue the tradition.
Silent Auction- Typically takes place in the beginning of May. This is another big fundraiser for our schools General Fund.

TAKING STUDENTS OUT DURING THE SCHOOL DAY
For your child’s safety, our policy requires that you call or send a note to school in advance if your child must leave school early. Children are not allowed to leave the classrooms early without clearance from the school office. Adults picking up children during the day must come to the office and sign the child out. Only adults that are listed on the emergency card may pick up children. Please keep these cards updated both in the office and with the teacher. No adult is to go directly to the classroom.
Students will not be allowed to leave the classroom until the adult signing them out is in the office.
These policies are in place to help us keep track of your children for their safety.
Absences & Tardies
It is extremely important that your student is in school every day, and arrives on time. If though your student is sick, or will arrive late because of an unexpected delay, please call the office, or email your student’s classroom and office by 8am. Students who arrive after 8:15am must be walked into the office by the driver, and signed in. All of these “rules” are in place to help keep your student safe! Contact information is below. Thank you!
