Intermediate News

Summer 2021


Dear Intermediate Families,


We are so excited to start a brand new school year! Below you will find our Intermediate supply list and information about Meet and Greet. Keep an eye out for more information about Covid-19 procedures and policies for the upcoming school year during the next few weeks. Our first Intermediate Newsletter will be sent out the Monday before school starts and will contain all of the information you will need for the first day of school!


Meet and Greet Monday 8/15

The annual ACA II Meet and Greet will be Monday, August 15th from 5:00pm-7:00pm. Please come by, say hello, and preview the Intermediate classrooms. Students may also drop off their school supplies at the Meet and Greet. You will be able to sign all of your back to school forms, as well as pick sizes for Fantastic Friday shirts at the Meet and Greet!


Intermediate Supply List

The supply list is attached and may also be viewed at this link: Supply List 2022-2023


A few reminders about the supply list:

  • Be sure to pay close attention to the supplies needed for your student’s grade level! The lists are slightly different.

  • Students will use their Trapper Keepers to keep and organize all of their work for the trimester. It is important that their Trapper Keeper can be closed and zipped so nothing falls out. Students may use the same Trapper Keeper throughout their three years in Intermediate.


Please purchase what you can from this list (we do have extra supplies for students who do not bring their own).


Our Yearlong Theme is Legacy

This year our year-long theme is Legacy. We will be studying United States history in social studies; ecosystems, energy, and force in science, and energy conversions and collisions in STEM. Our students will continue to work on color coded paragraphs in writing and our Young Authors book will be an autobiography this year.


We Need Elective Teachers!

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. 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, and video game design. We encourage new ideas too!


If you have a special talent you are willing to share or can supervise an activity on one of our elective days, please let us know ASAP.  You can email to let us know which day and type of activity interests you.


Electives are offered Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 2:00-3:00. 1st trimester electives will begin the week of August 29th. You can volunteer for one or multiple trimesters. If you have 10 afternoons available, it is a great way to support our students and get volunteer hours!
