2015 – 2016 SCHOOL YEAR CALENDAR

We are not even half way through this school year; however, we are already making plans for next year!  The 2015 - 2016 year will be packed with the usual activities as well as our VAIS 10 year reaccreditation visit and our 50th anniversary celebrations.

As we look at the calendar to make our plans, we are considering having the first day of school on August 31.  This is the week prior to Labor Day, September 7. This start date would accommodate our required classroom instruction time and put our last day of school at June 2.  Starting after Labor Day would extend our year further into June.

This is not a final decision but we wanted to make everyone aware of the possibility as you make summer vacation plans.  If you have any thoughts or questions, please contact Robin Taylor.

MAKE UP PICTURE DAY IS NEXT WEEK

If you would like your child’s picture retaken, please return the original package on Tuesday.  If your child missed picture day last month, please let me know and I will send home an order form.  Thanks, Ayron

GRANDPARENTS’ DAY IS COMING!

This year we extend an invitation to a special program for ALL grandparents, parents, and friends of ACDS.  The PK3/4, PK5, kindergarten classes will open the program with a mini musical called No Turkey for Perky. Thanksgiving music will also be shared by our students in grades 1 – 5.

Please mark your calendars and plan to join us on Wednesday, November 26, at 10:00 A.M. for this special program prepared for mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, and any other family member who is “special” to your child.

GRANDPARENTS’ DAY REMINDERS:

  • The buses WILL NOT run the afternoon route.  Please make sure that alternate travel plans have been made for your child.
  • The gymnasium doors will open at 9:30 A.M.
  • As with any school day, Standard Dress is required.  Students should look their best as we prepare for our special guests.  The November Dress-Down Day will be on Tuesday, November 25.  However, if your child is retaking his or her picture, Standard Dress must be worn for the picture.
  • Grandparents’ Day pictures will be taken in the school lobby after the program.  Please stop by and capture this special day with your loved ones.
