ACES Kid of the Week


This 2nd grader loves her pink hair and brings so much joy to everyone she meets!
She always has great stories to tell about her dogs and is ready to help anyone who needs it!

Marley, thank you for being our ACES Kid of the Week!

(And, thank you Olivia Pfankuch for being such
a good friend)
Quest Badge Highlight

Mr. Corey is teaching our 2nd-5th graders all about airplanes! They have been learning to identify different types of airplanes and also how aircraft carriers operate.

Their favorite thing so far has been learning about Chuck Yeager, the former US Air Force general officer and record-setting test pilot. In 1947, he became the first pilot confirmed to have exceeded the speed of sound in level flight! Students have been found playing with their paper airplanes and flying them around, pretending to be Chuck Yeager.
"You do what you can for as long as you can, and when you finally can't, you do the next best thing. You back up, but you don't give up." - Chuck Yeager

Thankful Tree

Students spent time right before Thanksgiving break thinking about what they were thankful for. We feel so blessed that ACES made the list!
ACES is thankful for...

The community of Bigfork, our donors, and our families, that support our program and allow us to help students grow to their full potential!! We couldn't do any of this without YOU!
Middle School Christmas Project!
Students are putting their entrepreneurial skills to work as they come up with a business plan, open their own bank account and brainstorm ideas on how they can use their profits to give back to the community! They will be making items to sell in a Christmas Store down at the ACES building. Dates and times to be announced! They have already put so much thought and consideration into this project! We can't wait to see the finished product!
