Thursday, May 7 is the National Day of Prayer.  Usually at school, each classroom is praying through the prayer guide as a way to celebrate and participate in this day. But we cannot do that this year, so we are asking you to participate as a family in the National Day of Prayer at home. This year’s theme, “Pray God’s Glory Across the Earth” is based on Habakkuk 2:14, and reminds us that this promise " for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea ” is for us today. National Day of Prayer Task Force President Kathy Branzell put it this way, “Unprecedented times call for unprecedented prayer! This years' virtual National Day of Prayer Observance may have more prayer–and more ‘pray-ers’ than ever before!   

Follow the link below to go to the National Day of Prayer official website, or click on one of the attachments as a prayer guide for your family. The National Day of Prayer Guide for Kids is better for younger kids, and National Day of Prayer guide - How to Pray for America, is better for older kids.

Thanks for praying for America with us!

  • Tuition Assistance for 2020-21 ACS participates in FACTS, a grant application program for our school. Completion of the FACTS application is a requirement for next year's enrollment if you are expecting a remaining balance at the end of the school year or you will be requesting tuition assistance. Families who wish to apply for tuition assistance will need to use the FACTS application format online at Parents who have children in more than one of the participating schools need only to fill out the application one time-the information will be available to other Christian schools where their children attend. The application fee will be paid by the participating schools.

It’s bound to be a great event for all and we welcome you to join us for a day of good golf, food, and fun!

Revised Kristina Moelker 5K - May 13 With our 5K being cancelled this year, we invite all ACS families to join together as a community. Wear a past 5K shirt or an ACS theme shirt and get outdoors by yourself or as a family from 7-7:30. You might decide to walk, jog, bike, rollerblade, or find some other way to be active. While doing this, take some time to give praise to the Lord and then lift up our ACS family in prayer (students, families, teachers/staff, administration/school board).
