Thanks for selling the Jambalya/White Bean Dinner tickets.  Return money tomorrow and any tickets that you will not be able to sell.  Orders for food must be finalized. As a thank you to the students, we will have Free Dress on Friday for their support of this fundraiser.  Refer to page 18 of the Parent/Student Handbook for Free Dress guidelines. No pants with holes; all shorts must be knee length, etc. These have changed since last year.  So, PLEASE review them.


Lots of you signed up to help with the Jambalaya/White Bean Dinner. THANKS!!! If you did not sign up, come help if you can. On Saturday morning at 9:30, we will gather to complete prep work.  Bring a cutting board and knife. Label these so that we will not get them mixed up. For the guys, Father will celebrate Mass at 4:00 am in the chapel.  Cooking will begin immediately after that. We need LOTS of guys to make this happen. Ladies, please arrive at 9:30 to set up and serve the dinners. We clean up as we go.  If you attend a church service, come as soon as you can after that. Middle school and high school students are encouraged to come help. No students will be allowed in the serving line.  They will be needed to help transport dinners to the pick-up line, etc.


All forms need to be completed and returned to the school this week.  We also need an email address for every family. These are needed so that we can set you up with Rediker.  That is what you need to check your child’s grades. It is also important that every family be connected to the school wide Remind app. Enter this number on your phone 81010 and text this message @acsnotify.  This is our emergency message system. We will send you messages on it, but in case of an actual schoolwide emergency, this how we can reach you quickly.  It is part of the ACS Crisis Plan. Thanks for helping us get all these Back to School details taken care of.


Room Mothers will have their first meeting on Friday, August 31st at 2:00 pm in the cafeteria. Katrina Mitchell is the Room Mom Chairperson this year. Thanks!!  After our meeting, all families will be contacted to help with the Fall Festival which is scheduled for Saturday, October 6th. So, mark the date on your calendar and start thinking of costumes for the contest and pumpkin ideas to decorate. Pinterest is filled with ideas!! Bert Burr will be here to take professional fall family photos. Details will follow on this fantastic family event filled with fun and  delicious food.
