Director's Corner

Hello families!


Happy September and welcome to ACPS! We are excited for our first week of school next week and can't wait to get to know each of your children. You will receive a monthly newsletter like this once a month and special newsletters throughout the month. I try my best to plan at least one month if not more in advance so you will know what to expect. If you ever have any questions, please let me know. You can call or email anytime.


All students start their first day on Tuesday, September 6th and Ms. Macie's M/W will start on Wednesday, September 7th.


I hope you all have a safe and fun holiday weekend.


Thanks,

Ms. Devin
