Our Early Childhood Open House will be held tomorrow - 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  https://www.facebook.com/events/579274765966305/  . Thank you!

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  https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3Z45H.  The application information will be easily accessible data from your 2019 tax return, along with financial accounts, and will require that copies of confirming tax documents be sent to the FACTS center. The FACTS organization will analyze the information of each applicant. They will provide our school with recommended grant amounts based on need and financial status. 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. Applications must be submitted by March 31, 2020. The application fee will be paid by the participating schools.

ACS middle school students have been working so hard in preparation for the upcoming play , The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe . The performances will be February 7 at 7pm and a matinee on February 8 at 3pm, both at the APS Ceglarek Auditorium. The kids look forward to sharing their God-given talents and the results of their hard work and dedication! Information on tickets sales will be available in next week's News and Notes.

ACS is in need of someone to coach our 3-5th grade boys and girls running club team this year.  The season begins near the end of March and concludes in May with a 5K. Practices would be two times a week. If you or someone you know would be interested in coaching please contact us so that we can continue this great program. You may contact Mrs. Lamer with any questions:  dlamer@allendalechristian.com

Moms in Prayer   We are moms just like you from ACS, APS, and GV who can easily carry around the concerns of our homes, schools, and communities. We gather together weekly to direct these to and commune with a God who is near and who cares. We meet right here at Allendale Christian on Thursdays  from 8:30-9:30am  in the girls locker room!  All Moms are welcome, whether you desire to grow in this area or if it is your greatest passion; whether you can come for a season or regularly. We would love to meet you!
