Newsletter for Antioch Charter Academy/TLCS Families and Staff Volume 24, Issue 32, May11, 2020
Hello ACA Families!
I can’t believe May is already here and we only have 4 weeks left of school! With summer quickly approaching, remind your students to turn in any work they have, and upload it to their Google Classrooms or turn it into their teachers for credit. There will be scheduled times that students will be able to come pick up their remaining items in their classrooms and bring back any items they have checked out for distance learning. Please keep looking for those details to come, as well as that beautiful July packet full of fun documents that you get to fill out each year! 🙂
Our Family Network is also working to make this End of the Year party a memorable one! They have special 2020 T-Shirts for sale this week and exciting plans for the event. I can’t wait to celebrate this year’s accomplishments with all of you! With the new challenges we have all experienced this year, you all deserve to celebrate how far you’ve come!
Only 4 more weeks to go!
Miss you all,
