The track team practiced in the rain yesterday. What a great attitude! They are participating in the Bogalusa Blues and Heritage Festival on Saturday, September 29th. Thanks to all the coaches for volunteering their time to train our students and offering them these worthwhile experiences. We appreciate their dedication.

The Otis Spunkmeyer Cookie Dough Sale officially begins on Monday. However, the packets arrived early, and we are sending them today. We have sampled cookie dough from several companies and these are the best tasting products. All orders and money must be returned to ACS by Monday, October 8th with delivery scheduled on Tuesday, November 6th.

In our continuing effort to make ACS a safe place for your child, next week staff members will receive Stop the Bleed training from doctors at Our Lady of the Angels Hospital. Everyone has also received American Red Cross CPR training. Flu shots will be available through the hospital nursing staff at a later date to be announced. Some students received notice that they are in need of immunizations. Please take care of that as soon as possible. Your child’s health and safety are important to us.
Plans are underway for the ACS Fall Fest on Saturday, October 6th from 5-8 in the school parking lot. Room Mothers are planning their booths. They will be contacting all families for assistance. Several contests are planned, and prizes have been ordered. There will be a Costume Contest at 6:00. Bert Burr will be here with a beautiful fall backdrop to take Autumn pictures of your family. There will be delicious food and fun for the entire family. On the back of this letter, you will find information about the pumpkin decorating contest. I am sending it early so that you can decide what kind of pumpkin your child will create. There are tons of ideas on Pinterest for booths, costumes, and pumpkins. Be creative and have fun!
