Achievement Tests

ACT Aspire Achievement Tests begin on Monday. It is important that students get a good night’s rest, eat breakfast, and arrive at school on time. Once testing begins, tardy students cannot disturb the class by entering. There are no make-ups. Therefore, please do not schedule appointments or trips next week. Testing is stressful on students and staff. We will try to keep disturbances to a minimum, and we appreciate your cooperation.

ACS Spring Gala/Auction
I am happy and proud to announce that after paying bills, the ACS Spring Gala/Auction netted $38,856.32 in profit. Every family contributed in some way to the Auction. So, Congratulations! Your hard work paid off! I will report on the Golf Tournament when all bills have been taken care of.

World’s Finest Chocolate

Now, it is time for the students’ favorite fundraiser—World’s Finest Chocolate. We are sending home permission forms for your family to receive the chocolate bars or chocolate covered almonds or both. Please try to help your child because this year we have a new neat prize. In conjunction with World’s Finest Chocolate, ACS is sponsoring a BMX Bike Show for students who help sell. The permission form that is being sent home today explains the prize levels. 

4H Achievement Day
The ACS 4H Club will participate in Achievement Day this Friday at the Franklinton Fairgrounds. We wish them the best of luck. Last week, Mr. Joe Culpepper assisted 4H members in planting spring vegetable plants. Hopefully, we will have ripe tomatoes before school closes. The students and their sponsors, Mrs. George and Mr. Derik, also helped plant corn in the garden behind the Social Security Office. This is a joint project with the ESM Methodist Church. We appreciate being included in this worthwhile endeavor. 

Holy Thursday Dismissal
ACS will close at 12 noon on Holy Thursday, April 13th, and will re-open on Monday, April 24th for Easter/Spring break.
