Next Monday, December 16, ACS will be performing their annual Christmas concert
for family and friends. This is a great way for us all to kick off the Christmas season and for the students to show you what they have learned so far this year in their music classes. It will take place at Ceglarek Fine Arts Center (Allendale Public Fine Arts Center) at 6:30 pm. Below is a message from Mr. Koetje about this year’s concert! If you have any questions contact Miss Brummel
ACS families - The students and Miss Brummel are so excited to present the Christmas
concert on December 16! It is so awesome to be able to worship with so many people and celebrate
the birth of our Savior. If you have been to the program the past couple of years, you have noticed that we have run out of seating with our rapid enrollment growth. This year, again, we added many new families and students. With limited seating available,
we are requesting that families try to keep attendance to parents, siblings, and grandparents (great-grandparents included).
We understand there might be a situation where someone else might need to come in place of these immediate family members, but we do not want to make immediate family members stand or not be able to observe the program because we have run out of seats. Thank you for your help!
ACS is looking for a nice video camera to be able to record the Christmas program next Monday night
That way, we are able to make the program available to people that are not able to attend. If you have a nice camera (meant for that type of usage) and are willing to let ACS use the camera to videotape the program, please contact Brian Koetje at
, or call the office at 895-5108.
Our Early Childhood Open House will be held on Thursday, January 16
, starting at 6:30pm. This will be the first time the general public will be able to enroll in Preschool and Child Care for 2019-20. We will be offering Nature-based and Traditional Preschool options, as well as year-round child care! The best promotion for ACS is word of mouth from our current families. We would greatly appreciate if you would tell your friends and family about the Open House and our Early Childhood programs! If you are on Facebook, please share the Open House invitation with your FB friends. The link is
. Thank you!
Although it is still only December, a very important 2020-2021 enrollment informational email
was sent to families from Brian Koeje. If you haven't had a chance to read it, please do so as at least one area will relate to your child(ren).
The 2nd graders at Allendale Christian are running their Jingle Bell Post Office through December 18!
Christmas cards, stamps, and envelopes will be sold during snack recess, and delivery will be made at the end of each school day. Each item will cost 5 cents so you can send a Christmas greeting to a friend for only 15 cents! All proceeds will go to Mel Trotter Ministries. Additional stamps and cards can be purchased through Miss Driesenga or Mrs. Sheppard as well. Spread some holiday cheer with a card!
We continue to have problems with students being picked up at the front curb after school.
In order to keep our students safe and to help with traffic flow, please do not park at the curb in front of the school building. Thank you for your co-operation.
The first graders would like to say thank you
to everyone who came and supported our hot chocolate sale yesterday! God blessed our work and we raised a total of $258.56 to buy paint for the ACS mission trip to Guatemala!
Moms in Prayer
Each week a group of Moms from ACS, APS, and GV gather for one hour to grow together in praying for our kids, their teachers, and our schools. We meet right here at Allendale Christian on Thursdays
in the girls locker room! All Moms are welcome, whether you desire to grow in this area or if it is your greatest passion.
