Words are inadequate to thank all of you for the tremendous success of Sunday’s Jambalaya/White Bean Dinner. When Ms. Pat receives all the invoices, we will give you a final report, but over 1,100 dinners were sold.  Wow! We could not have done it without the volunteers who showed up Saturday and Sunday. I have heard good comments from people who purchased dinners. Left over White Beans are frozen and will be served at the Fall Fest on Saturday, October 6th.

Thanks to all the parents who have volunteered in the cafeteria.  We are supposed to have a third lunch room lady beginning tomorrow. Kandi and Tonya have had a rough start to this year, but your help has made it a lot more bearable.

I can hardly believe that it is time to send out the September calendar.  Please keep it handy so that you will know what special events are occurring around ACS.  We are proud of our flag football team and our cross country track teams. They are practicing in the heat and rain to be ready for this year’s sporting events. Both of these groups have events in September. The cheerleaders and pep squad are also practicing to cheer our student athletes to victory. Mark your calendar and join us to show your support. Thanks to the coaches and sponsors who make these activities possible for our students.

Thursday is the deadline for ordering the official Washington Parish Fair shirts through ACS.  Price is $15.00, which is the same as if you purchase them at the Fair; and ACS will receive $5 per shirt. Students will be allowed to wear any Fair shirt the week before the Fair—Monday, October 8-Friday, October 12, 2018.  We have this year’s shirt in the office if you would like to see it before ordering.

We will once again participate in Domino’s Pizza Day every month on the first Thursday.  Mention ACS when you order your pizza. The class that purchases the most pizza will have a FREE class pizza party, and the school will receive a donation from Domino’s.

Labor Day holiday is Monday, September 3rd. Enjoy your long weekend with your family.
