Walkerton is organizing a Christmas parade (the first annual!) on December 10 at 2:00 pm.  This message is to see if we have enough interest to put a float in the parade.  We need a truck/trailer with hay (think hay ride) that we can decorate on Saturday the 9th at Mizpah United Methodist Church (on Canterbury Rd.).  My thought was to have a group of students, parents, alumni, and/or friends of ACDS to ride and sing carols for the parade.  If you are available and interested, let me know at   Details will be announced later, once we determine that we have enough interested people to participate.  Thanks!

We have a limited number of new red ACDS long sleeve t-shirts available.  We have youth medium and youth large for $15.00 and adult S-XXL for $20.00.  Please let Ayron know if you would like to purchase one.  Thanks!


  1. Athletic participation forms are due by December 1.  If your child played a fall sport, we have his/her form already on file.
