Dear ACA Community,

It’s been a great week at ACA, with some mild weather and even a bit of sunshine! The staff has been very busy wrapping up first semester Learning Records and Report Cards while preparing for second semester. We appreciate our hard working people!

PTO’s first Pizza Thursday was a rousing success. Thank you, PTO members and volunteers, for making this happen for the community!

And thanks to Lindsay Coombes as the creator, and her proofreading volunteers, our new website is live! ACA is moving from our old site at .com to a new platform at .org. So check out to find the calendar of events and information and resources for families and staff. The website calendar is tied to the office calendar and will be updated in real time.   

If your student is a member of the Class of 2024, be sure to join the virtual Graduation Information Meeting, February 6 at 6pm. It’s time to start planning the celebration! Here is the link:

We are opening up our Tuesday Yoga class to all staff, students, and parents. This is a slower-paced class for all-levels. Sarah Blue Cloud invites you to drop in when you can. You do not have to sign up for this class - it is free to the community. Class is offered on Tuesdays after lunch from 12:30-1:25 pm. Mats provided, comfortable clothes and water encouraged. 

Come learn, play, and relax!

The Google Doodle annual contest is open. Students are encouraged to think about this year’s theme, then imagine and create a Google Doodle — a piece of art that incorporates the letters G-o-o-g-l-e — based on how the prompt inspires them.  This year’s theme is “My wish for the next 25 years…”.

Artists create their Doodles using any materials they want, from crayons, clay, to found objects. This year, we’re welcoming more mediums of digital art, including virtual reality paintings, videos of stop-motion, songs, and poems. Winners receive college scholarships!

A busy spring, packed with fun events, is shaping up. Check below for coming attractions. Thank you, parents, for supporting your kids in their schooling at ACA!

Go Eagles,
