Dear Cheetah Families,
Thank you parents for your continued support. As we continue to do our distance learning, we highly encourage our students to work on their packet and if they need help, they can join Ms.M’s zoom lessons or watch Miss.B’s Video to understand the concept. When you come to school to drop off and pick up the packet please use the O street parking, since the fairgrounds are closed for the public.
May 11th- June 4th – Online Distance Learning continues
May 13th-15th Walk-A-Thon
Friday, May 15th – School will be open from 8:00 am to NOON to drop off, pick up work packet and empty student’s cubby
Friday, May 15 – Last day to turn in Memory Book pre-order forms with payment
Thursday May 28th-Last day of zoom instruction
Friday May 29th-All loaned items are due back for Elementary
Thursday June 4th-Last day of school
Since the campus is closed, your student is welcome to come to campus and pick up their belongings on Fridays between 8 and 12. Please bring a bag to collect your students belongings.
We have received questions about Friday classes. They are enrichment classes, and they will be tracking student participation. If you have been participating great, if you have yet to, no worries, your student can start participating now as it fits into your schedule. Here is the google classroom code: dseud3i.
-In regards to personal safety, students need to practice their routines over the summer and log in their practice time. Students will be tested at the beginning of next school year to earn their belts.
The Walk-A-Thon is On!
Hey Cheetah’s get ready to exercise and show your school spirit! We’re going to hold a Shelter-In-Place Walk-A-Thon May 13th through May 15th.
Any time from 8 am May 13th through 8 pm May 15th exercise for 30 minutes while social distancing. You can take a walk, dance, Zumba, do jumping jacks, burpees, martial arts, play on the trampoline, swim… whatever you would like to do to stay active for 30 minutes straight. Have fun! Be creative and show your school spirit while you exercise! You may even want to exercise with a friend by video chatting them via Zoom, Facetime, GoogleDuo, etc!
There will be an official Walk-a-Thon post on May 13th on the ACA II Facebook page. Comment on that post with a picture or description of you exercising, or if you are unable to post to Facebook email the description and/or picture to Stephanie Brooks at Fetzy72@gmail.com and she will post it in the comment thread for you. Every family who shares a picture or description receives 1 entry in a raffle for a chance to win a Target electronic gift card.
We understand that some families financial situations have greatly changed due to the current situation, therefore if you or one of your family/friends previously made a donation and now needs a refund, please email Stephanie Brooks at Fetzy72@gmail.com and we will get the money refunded. So that social distancing is practiced, new donations will only be accepted through 99Pledges. Please email Laurie Hawley if you need your 99Pledges link, lhawley@antiochcharteracademy.
Let’s do this Cheetah’s because Cheetah’s Make It Happen!
