A.C.E Adventures

January News

Hello ACE families,


Happy New Year! :) We hope and pray you all had a blessed and restful Christmas. We are excited to be back and ready to learn and have a lot of fun!


We will be visiting Antarctica this month! We will be having fun with ice and snow experiments and sampling some freeze dried food. The only people that live in Antarctica are scientists so we will be putting on our scientist hats and diving deep into research and even using walkie talkies to relay our findings.


Did you know that Antarctica is actually the largest desert in the world? They get such little precipitation, it is considered arid enough to be a desert. Also, polar bears and penguins are not friends...or even enemies. Penguins live in the south and polar bears live in the northern region.

This month in GPS we will be watching some "cool" videos on Antarctica's geography and the penguins that live there. We will continue to celebrate Jesus' birth and learn what the Fruit of the Spirit "JOY" is all about!

A.C.E Amigos!

We're so excited to bring back A.C.E. Amigos this winter. A.C.E Amigos is a mentoring program that is designed to provide our after school aged children with fun, positive and character building activities (such as science experiments, crafting, and just good old playing - as well as a yummy snack that they prepare together) with a high school age mentor.


We have had great success in matching up our mentors with our 2-5th grade children and providing both the child and the mentor with a wonderful experience!


More information will come! We will be participating in fun winter activities!
