Congratulations to the ACS Crusader Flag Football Team for their victory over Lake Castle.  Our players and cheerleaders have grit and determination. Even Louisiana heat cannot stop them! Thanks to the families who provide transportation so that our students can participate in extra-curricular activities.

Christmas is three months from today-time to put up your tree and start shopping.  Hopefully, the weather will be cooler by then. The October calendar is coming home today.  There are LOTS of activities coming up in addition to the Washington Parish Fair. We have lost our person who always delivered Junior Fine Arts to the Fairgrounds on Friday.  So, if you plan to enter anything from your child, you will need to make different arrangements. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Fantastic News-Track/Cross Country is back!! Coach Ross will work with interested students in grades 1-7.  This sport was a highlight of last year. I am thrilled that ACS students will be able to participate again.  There will be a meeting of NEW Track/Cross Country parents on Friday, September 27th in the ACS Cafeteria at 3:30.  Come get the facts about this wonderful opportunity.  The students loved this sport last year. I know that this year will be even more exciting.

Pope John Paul High School in Slidell is hosting Open House on Wednesday, October 2, 2019 beginning at 6:30. I encourage all middle school families to attend.  It is important that you explore all possibilities before deciding on your child’s high school placement.

At ACS, we support events that promote the City of Bogalusa.  This Friday and Saturday the Bogalusa Blues and Heritage Festival will occur in Cassidy Park. On Thursday and Friday, students are encouraged to wear one of the Fest t-shirts (available at Wild Blue and McMillan’s) or a shirt that depicts music, or any blue shirt.

The ACS Fall Fest is being planned by the Room Mothers.  It will happen during the school day on Thursday, October 31st.  Details on the Pumpkin Decorating Contest are on the back of this letter. More details will follow in the near future.

Friday is the last day to order ACS Saints t-shirts.
