ACS CLOSED FOR THE VACATION: June 17-July 17

There will be a lot of activity on campus during this time as we complete routine maintenance and campus improvement projects. With workers and heavy equipment present we want to reduce any risk to families and children. The school will therefore be closed for all business from June 17th to July 17th. It is important for all families to conclude all business, including payments and any special requests prior to June 14. The ACS office re-opens on July 18th. You will be receiving information about student registration for the 2019-2020 school year in the coming weeks.

REGISTRATION FOR 2019-2020

COUGAR PARENT LEARNING COMMUNITY: Record Attendance

Our Cougar Parent Learning Community attendance rose 83% this year. We believe this is because parents are increasingly seeing the value of these forums as we partner in raising ethical, responsible global citizens.

You can review all the Cougar Learning Community Parent Forum Presentations by clicking on the links listed in the Fast Links section below. The Cougar Parent Learning Community is designed to empower you with relevant research-based information and strategies related to effective parenting and cultivating healthy social emotional development in your children. Please see this year's offer by clicking on this link. We look forward to recognizing parents who regularly attend these events with a special certificate awarded at the final General Assembly of the year on April 24.
