We were thrilled and humbled at ACS to receive “The Best Private School in Washington Parish” Award from the readers of The Daily News. The surprise was even better when we learned that Tabetha Ezell had won for “Best Teacher in Washington Parish.” Thanks to everyone who voted for ACS and Mrs. Ezell.
