Friday will be Free Mardi Gras Dress Day with jeans allowed.  Be sure that students wear shoes appropriate for recess and PE.  We have had several falls when children wear flip flops or sandals. There will be NO AFTERCARE on Friday.  Classes will resume on Monday, March 11, 2019. I hope everyone has a safe and fun filled Mardi Gras break. We have quite a few students and parents who have served on this year’s MCCA Royal Court. Hopefully the rain will stop on Saturday and we can all enjoy a wonderful parade. Hail, MCCA XXXIX!!!

When we return from Mardi Gras on Monday, March 11th, it will be Spring Auction Week.  I hope that all Room Moms have taken care of their class’s art project and basket for the Auction.  I have seen several groups working this week. It is never too late to bring in Auction items. Please solicit donations from businesses that you patronize.  Tickets for the Auction are on sale in the office. It is a bargain—all the delicious food from Yo-Yo’s, desserts from Rachel Stewart, and lively entertainment. Please come out and support your child’s school.

On Tuesday, March 12th, we will host ACS Family Science Night beginning at 5:30 in the cafeteria.  Teachers will have stations set up, and groups will rotate every 10 minutes. Students who visit at least 6 stations will have Free Dress the next day, Wednesday, March 13th.  Come out with the family and experience the fun of science.

Also on Wednesday, March 13th, Bert Burr will be at school to take sports pictures.  Students who participate in sports will need to bring all their uniforms and accessories.

The Knights of Columbus are sponsoring a Lenten Fish Fry on Friday, March 15th.  Proceeds are coming to ACS.  Since we will be busy preparing for the Auction on the 15th, we can eat together and no one will need to go home and cook.  Tickets are $10 and can be purchased in the school office. You can send money in an envelope marked KC Fish Fry, and Ms. Terry will send you the tickets.

March calendars are coming home today.  Hang on to it so that you and your child can keep up and be prepared for all the upcoming events.  Enjoy your week off. Hopefully, everyone will recover from the flu, strep, and coughs and be ready to head into Spring at ACS!
