NEW STUDENTS TO ACDS

Please join us in welcoming Luisa Maria Morales Sanchez (Lu Lu) and Rodrigo de Jesus Salazar Pineda, who are attending ACDS until mid-December through an organization called Faces and Our Cultures.  Lu Lu, a 6th grader, is staying with the Gwathmeys; Rodrigo, a 7th grader, is with the Kruszs.  During their stay, they will be doing a program for each class at ACDS on their country, Guatemala. Both will be playing basketball this winter. Rodrigo has a role in the 7th grade class play, The Best Halloween Ever, on November, 4, as well. We are so happy to have them here at ACDS!
