Vision Event Invitation

We are extending an invitation to you to attend one of our Vision Events. What is a Vision Event? This is an opportunity to hear about the history of the school, understand the mission and vision of ACS, hear some of the initiatives of the school, and get a fuller picture of where the school is headed. This is not a fundraising event, but one where we share the awesome things God is doing and where He is leading the school!

We are excited to share this with all those who would attend, so please feel free to pass this invitation along to others in the ACS community (invite grandparents or even a neighbor who is interested in hearing more about Allendale Christian)!

Below you will find dates and times of the Vision Events we are hosting (on campus). Please email your RSVP to We hope to see you there!

Grandparents Day: The Grandparents Day Committee has selected Friday, May 5, 2023 as the date that the Grandparents Day program will be held. More details will be provided as we get closer to that date. With our growth, it is likely that the program will have to be done twice in order to have all Grandparents be able to have a chance to watch their grandkids.

Absences due to illness: For the current school year, students will be able to return to school when they are fever free for 24 hours and have significantly improved symptoms. Families have the option to keep a student home longer if they choose. Quarantines will not be mandated for students and staff that have been exposed to an illness.

Volunteer Opportunity! Throughout the course of the month, teachers will have the opportunity to meet with their grade-level team and our Director of Learning, Rachel Reed, for continued professional development. These meetings will be held during lunch, and we are looking for volunteers to help provide classroom coverage for these meetings. We would love it if you could please check out our sign-up genius and sign up to help with classroom lunchtime coverage in order to make this possible. We appreciate your help in this way! Sign Up Genius link


The Walk-a-Thon is quickly approaching on Friday, September 23rd! This is one of our largest fundraisers and the students have so much fun participating in it! Your child(ren) should have come home with an information/pledge sheet, along with an envelope. Pledge sheets AND money are due by the day of the event. Each student has a $100 fundraising goal, and the money raised is used for field trips and items to enrich the teachers' classrooms. Thank you for sharing in your child's enthusiasm for this event and helping make it a successful fundraiser!
