The Annual Giving Campaign - LAST DAY!
This is it! The Annual Giving Campaign officially ends today, and soon we will announce how much was raised against our $525,000 goal.
Please join us! To donate or make a pledge (and pay later), simply contact Kimberly Ahlgren or go online to make your gift/pledge today. Knowing your intentions now will allow us to count your gift towards the goal.
To the families, volunteers, faculty members, PSA Board, and Board of Trustees who have already committed to the campaign, a sincere "Thank You" from your AGC Chairs and everyone here at ACDS.
Pick Up Your Copy of Raising Kids!
If you didn't attend our 11/3 event to pick up the new book by Sheri Glucoft Wong and Dr. Jorgenson, please visit the front office. The school is providing one complimentary copy per ACDS family. The recording link for the event is available under the Parent’s Corner on the school website. Please use your login credentials to access it.

Faculty Appreciation Holiday Luncheon & Raffle - Help With a Wonderful Tradition!
This well-loved, PSA-sponsored event is when we take time to thank the entire ACDS Faculty & Staff for their hard work throughout the year. A beautiful luncheon is held off-campus for our Faculty & Staff, followed by an exciting live raffle.
As we approach the holiday season, please consider donating a gift basket or single gift item to be included in the big raffle. Donations are due by Wednesday, December 14. Volunteers are also needed to provide childcare for staff children during the luncheon on Friday, December 16. Click here to view complete details and sign up using iVolunteer.
Thank you for supporting this wonderful tradition as we head off to the holidays!
Our Winter Book Fair is Coming!
December 5 - 11
The Book Fair, which takes place inside the ACDS Library, is a spectacular, week-long event where children and parents can purchase specially selected books from Hicklebee's. Proceeds from the Winter Book Fair go directly to our students through the various activities in our ACDS library. There are lots of opportunities to volunteer this year. Sign up now!
Thank you to all of our student and parent ambassadors for volunteering to share your love for ACDS during our recent Open Houses. Not only did we have record registrations and attendance, we have already received numerous applications from these families because of the great experience they had with you.
LOVING THE NOW. READY FOR NEXT.
