Elementary Parent-Teacher Conferences  will be held October 21 & 22 from 5:00-8:15 pm. The schedule can be found here->    Conference Form If you need a hard copy, please have your child swing by the school office to pick up one.

Middle School Parent-Teacher Conferences   The middle school teachers will send a Sign-Up Genius link via email after the elementary conference schedule is sent home. Middle School c onferences are not mandatory; you will only be assigned a conference time if you sign up on the link! Specific information about how the sign-up will work will be communicated in the coming weeks.

Specials Teachers will not be present at Parent-Teacher Conferences . If you have a need for a conversation with any of the specials teachers, please email them and they will set up a time to talk.

The lost and found table is in the rotunda . Please check it out while you are here for conferences! Always be sure to put your child's name in clothing, especially if the item is black snowpants!

As Halloween is approaching , we wanted to remind families that ACS does not celebrate or participate in Halloween activities, in classrooms or as a school.

ACS is looking to add substitute teachers to our call list If you are interested in being a sub (teacher or aide), or know someone who may be interested in being a substitute, please email Brian Koetje-  bkoetje@allendalechristian.com  for more information.

Students at ACS would love to have a 9-square court constructed at ACS . This fun game is very popular and would make a great addition to our campus. Ideally, we would have metal poles, but we are open to options. If you are willing to help make 9-square happen at ACS, please email me at  bkoetje@allendalechristian.com .

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  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.
