Miller Farms Field Trip: Our annual Miller Farms field trip will be Wednesday the 19th of September.  They have initiated a new policy, and are requiring a waver form for each person attending.  These  have been sent home.  They need to be signed and returned by Monday if possible. Tuesday at the latest  The cost is $8.00, and can be taken from your child’s field trip fund if available.  Parents/guardians are very welcome to join us at this same cost.  We will need help driving, so if you are able to transport children, please let your teacher know.  We will consider the Miller waiver form your permission slip for this trip.  Please plan on a throw away sack lunch and plenty of water.  Sunscreen, and clothes/shoes that can get muddy are appropriate.  Please let us know if you have any questions.

Please make sure your child’s immunizations are current and a copy is at the school.  If you opt out of immunizations, a form must be signed and on file at the school as well.  All children must also have a copy of a birth certificate on file.

Violins: If students in grades K-2 are interested in taking violin lessons, please contact Mrs. G. Students in K-2 may join us at a cost of $10 per month.  Students must be willing to practice, and put forth effort in learning to play.

Parent Volunteers needed: If you are interested in helping the school, we have several opportunities.  We need a parent to take care of our Box Tops for Schools program, and the King Super’s fundraiser.  Please speak to Mr. or Mrs. G if you are interested in helping with either of these programs.   Also, our Fall Festival is coming up at the end of October.  While that is still a ways off, we need help in many different areas.  Please be thinking of how you would like to use your talents and skills for ACS.
