Thanks to everyone who helped with the Jambalaya/White Bean Dinner this past weekend. If anyone has receipts for reimbursement, please get them to Ms. Pat. I will let you know how much we made once the bills are paid.

Student Council and Beta Club are both conducting inductions when we return from Labor Day. Congratulations to all students who were selected to serve ACS in such worthwhile organizations. And thanks to parents who support their efforts with your time, talents, and treasures.

Room Mothers will have their first meeting on Friday, September 8th in the Cafeteria at 2:00 P.M. Katrina Mitchell is the Room Mother Chairperson for this year. After our meeting, they will contact all of you to help with the Fall Festival which is scheduled for Saturday, October 7th. We will once again have the Festival before the Fair and Halloween. So, start thinking about costumes for the contest and pumpkin ideas to decorate. Bert Burr will be here to take professional photographs of your family. Details will follow on this traditional Fall celebration!


August zoomed by and we are gearing up for September. The annual Otis Spunkmeyer Cookie Dough Sale will kick off on Monday, September 11 and end on Friday, September 29th. Delivery is scheduled for Wednesday, October 25th—just in time for holiday baking. For those of you new to ACS, this is a popular, delicious product that people have enjoyed through the years. Details will be sent home closer to the sale.

Your child’s safety and well being are paramount in our minds at Annunciation. For that reason, we are going through safety training and drills with the Bogalusa Police Department. We will practice drills for bad weather, fire, bomb threats, and intruders so that in the event of an actual emergency, the staff and students will know what to do. Teachers will discuss safety with the students. I just want you to be aware so that if your child tells you the police were here and we were crouching in halls, you will not be alarmed.
