A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Last week at ACE one of our community partners, Home Depot in Summerwood, donated all of the materials to build 6 student gardens at ACE behind our beautiful library. But they didn't stop there! They sent a number of the employees from the store to actually construct the gardens on site! We are so grateful for their donation to us which included wood for the gardens, a weed mat for the bottom, and 150 bags of soil! For many years to come, students will be able to grow fruits, vegetables, and flowers in these spaces while learning the science of plants!


Students from the Summer Creek High School Ag department also came to help with construction. We really have some wonderful local partners who care about our kids.


Here are a few pictures from the event.

MODIFIED SCHEDULE THIS WEEK DUE TO MOCK STAAR

We will be operating a modified schedule on Tuesday March 8 and Wednesday March 9 due to a mock STAAR test we are administering to 3rd through 5th graders. If you plan to eat lunch with your 3rd through 5th grader on either of these days, please check the schedule as their lunch times have changed.

Thanks Watch D.O.G.S for responding!

Last month we challenged our Watch Dogs to serve between February and the end of the year. Already we have gotten a good response, especially on Fridays! If you haven't done so already, sign up to serve with one of our options which include half days, full days, or a 2 hour block of time. Your presence really makes a difference!
