Thanks to everyone who endured the heat to attend the flag football game on Monday. Our next home game is Monday, September 24th against St. Margaret Mary from Slidell.  I hope to see you there, and hope that it will be cooler.


If your child needs to go to aftercare before the home ball games, you need to see Ms. Terry about a registration form. Students who are regular attendees have already completed this form, but we had several players and cheerleaders who stayed yesterday for one hour until time to go to the park.  Children who stay will be billed $5.00 for one hour of service and will be sent as a group to the park.  I want you to understand that there is no adult to accompany them.  Terry will watch them across the street, but she cannot leave the building with unattended children.  Please talk to her if you need this service.


Next week will be the ACS Food Drive to benefit the Bogalusa Food Bank.  Beta is sponsoring this worthwhile service project.  Please send non-perishable food items to school, or stop by and put them on the stage.  Humble service is part of the ACS mission statement and a pillar of Catholic education. Giving back to those in need helps teach the students to put Christian teachings into real life situations.  Thank you for your generosity.


I hope you are planning to decorate a pumpkin with your family for the upcoming contest on Thursday, October 4th.  Remember DO NOT carve the pumpkin because your child can bring it home after the Fall Fest. There will be a costume contest at the Fall Fest on Saturday, October 6th.  I am really excited that middle school is doing a Haunted House.  I know that will be fun.  Bert Burr will be here to take beautiful fall pictures of your family.  There will be homemade goodies at the Cake Walk, lots of fun games, and delicious food. Next week, I will send information about goodies for the Cake Walk.  We need every family to donate something.  I bet there are some grandmothers and aunts who make wonderful homemade goodies, or you can certainly purchase goodies to send-whatever works for you. Be creative and have fun with all these projects.  Pinterest is full of great inexpensive ideas that you can involve your whole family in. Room mothers will contact you to volunteer time that night to run your class’s booth, and we need guys to work in the concession stand. This is a family event. Please plan to attend. Invite neighbors, friends, and family to join in the festivities.


The ACS Track/Cross Country Team is running in the Bogalusa Blues and Heritage Festival Run on Saturday, September 29th. Many of our runners have family members who are running with them.  This would be a fun time to show up and cheer for our families who are participating. Thanks, Coach Ross, for pushing us on and involving ACS in these wonderful events!!


I realize that we are weltering through record breaking heat, but fall starts this weekend, and one day soon it will be cool.  Sweatshirt orders are due by Friday, September 21st.  Derik handles these orders, and he will be leaving soon.  So, do not miss this opportunity to get your child’s winter clothing taken care of.
