Father, all the elements of nature obey your command. Calm the storms and hurricanes that threaten us and return our fear of your power into praise of your goodness. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

This prayer was sent to us yesterday from Archbishop Gregory Aymond. The ACS students have been praying for protection from all the tropical weather and blessings for those already affected by Hurricane Harvey. Hopefully, Irma will continue her eastward trend and we will be spared of this natural disaster.


The Knights of Columbus are sponsoring their annual Turkey Shoot and Raffle on Saturday, October 28th. First Prize is $700; second prize is $200, and third prize is $100. Tickets are $5.00 each and are on sale at the school. Proceeds from this ticket sale will be split with the school. You can send your money in an envelope and we will send you your ticket. Thanks to the Knights for helping with our school.

Treasure Chest Donations
We have several classes with Treasure Chests used as part of their behavior reward system. If you have any small toys from Happy Meals, etc. that are cluttering up your house, we would love to have them. This also goes for outdoor toys that PreK could use. Remember “one man’s junk is another man’s treasure”.

Domino’s Pizza Day
Tomorrow is the first Domino’s Pizza Day. Order food from Domino’s, mention ACS, and we receive 20% of your order. The class that purchases the most receives a free Pizza Party from Domino’s. Encourage everyone at work, in your family, and your neighbors to EAT PIZZA the first Thursday of every month.

Monday is the kick-off to the Saints football season. Students and staff are encouraged to wear black and gold Saints clothing! See if you had not read this letter, you might not know about this special treat!
