Field Trip – All students and parents attending the field trip on Wednesday must arrive at school by 8:15 AM.  Even if you are only driving your own child, you may not go straight to the pumpkin patch, you MUST meet at school by 8:15 AM.  If you are not driving your child, you must send them to school with a booster seat, because all students under age 8 must ride in a booster seat. Please remember no siblings allowed on this field trip. Please send your child to school with a snack. Students will be dismissed from school at 12:00 unless they usually stay for Cheetah Zone care.


Halloween Party – All students will attend school 8:15-12:00 on Halloween. Each year, ACAII hosts a Halloween carnival during this time for Primary and Elementary. The carnival is put together solely by parent (or guardian) volunteers. We set up booths with games and activities where the kids can win prizes. There will also be a costume parade before the party. This is such a fun event!! If you are interested in signing up to be a volunteer, please email Or you can simply sign up at this link:


If you can’t volunteer but would like to donate to the cause, you can send money into the office (please label money in a bag or envelope that is for primary/elementary Halloween party). We are asking for $5/student in the participating grade, but any amount will be gratefully accepted!


English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) – ACA2 is excited to announce the development of our English Learner Advisory Committee/Comité Asesor de Padres (ELAC). The English Learners Advisory Committee/Comité Asesor de Padres (ELAC) makes recommendations regarding programs for students with second language needs. The purpose of the ELAC is to provide parents of English Learners opportunities to:

  • Learn more about the programs offered to their children
  • Participate in the school’s needs assessment of students, parents, and teachers
  • Provide input in the most effective ways to support full participation of English Learners in all school activities
  • Provide input on the most effective ways to ensure regular school attendance

ACA2 is looking for parents of our English Language Learners to participate in this committee to provide their unique input on the learning needs of their students and how to make our school more culturally inclusive. This committee will also include parent training on how to best navigate the school system for their student(s).

If you would like to participate or have any questions, please contact:


Book Fair – Please watch for all the great information for our Mini-Book Fair on November 30-Dec. 1, 2023. This would be a great way to help develop your child’s interest in reading through holiday gifts. More information will be coming home soon but we wanted to get this on your calendars.

If you are able to help, a volunteer letter will be coming home in early November as well as how to set up an e-wallet if you wish for your children’s  or your purchases.  Any questions please contact Debby Greene at
