If you're spending a long time at home, it can be a challenge to keep yourself occupied. Luckily, 10 Ways to Survive Life in a Quarantine is full of handy solutions, from putting on a musical with your dog, to becoming an announcer for a made-up sport, to falling in love with an inanimate object.

6th Grade Turns the Wheel on Nov 16th

Hello 6th Graders (& Parents),

Most of your classes are on a semester schedule. The exception is your Elective Wheel course in Period 1 &/or Period 2. This course is on a quarter schedule. When we are in-building - we usually escort the groups to their new wheel class at the quarter. Being in remote ... we miss out on that transition fun.

The end of first quarter is November 12. What this means is on Monday November 16 - you need to log into your new 2nd quarter wheel classes as shown in your Quarter 2 schedule. We will be testing the remote transition to see if we have any kinks... watch for further instructions in the week to come.

Please look at your Quarter 2 classes using StudentVue. The following diagram shows how to find the schedule for Quarter 2 once you are in your StudentVue account.

PTO Fundraiser at Panera - Nov 17th

THANK YOU to all ACMA families for their outpour of support for the recent fundraising event at Chipotle. We are humbled by the enthusiasm and participation that helped us exceed our event fundraising goal.

Our next ACMA PTO Restaurant Fundraiser will be at Panera Bread on Cedar HIlls Boulevard on NOVEMBER 17th from 4 pm to 8 pm.

The recent event was a huge success for ACMA and Chipotle, yet we learned a few logistics details need to be coordinated with the restaurant itself to ensure the safety of the ACMA patrons and the restaurant staff. As the PTO coordinator for the event, I have discussed the event with Chipotle and Panera Bread. The lessons learned will lead to a safer experience at Panera Bread.

Online (pick up or curbside) and in person orders will qualify for the ACMA fundraiser. Unfortunately, gift cards, delivery services, like DoorDash, Postmates, and catering will not count. More information will be provided as we approach the event date. Thank you again.
