A.C.E Adventures

Hello A.C.E families!

Happy March! :) We hope and pray you are all healthy and happy and ready for Spring. We have been busy, busy, busy here in ACE and I wanted to check in with you to share some of our excursions. We will be exploring Europe and also focusing on St. Patrick's Day.


We will venture to the Western European countries of Portugal, Spain, and the UK. While there, your child may have the opportunity to paint a traditional Portuguese tile, an azulejos, or taste a yummy Portuguese custard cake; Pasteis de Nata. We will also be experimenting with materials that sink or float, as cork trees are native to Portugal.


While in the UK, we will have the opportunity to taste traditional British fish and chips along with mushy peas, and to also learn the game of cricket. In Ireland, we will celebrate St. Patrick’s day and learn more about the shamrock, Ireland’s national symbol.


We will also be hosting our own March Madness competition to see whose favorite animal will the the ultimate favorite. Have your son or daughter consider which land and sea animals they will nominate!

Mission

"Drop Your Drawers!"

The Captain Underpants Undie Drive! Tra-la-la-la


Did you know that Underwear is the most under-donated, and most needed item of clothing? No one should be deprived of the simple, daily necessity of clean underwear that many of us take for granted.


During the month of March, we will be collecting

boys and girls underwear from size 4T to size 12/14.


Please drop your donated items in the lobby!

GPS

The Fruit of the Spirit is Faithfulness and we will be looking at Bible stories from the “Faithful Hall of Fame” as well as how we can be a good, loyal friend. We will have some fun exploring Spanish countryside, Italian artist Leonardo Da Vinci and learn a French song! And, to top it off - “The True Story of St. Patrick’s Day” followed by a party!☘️

Newsies

Look for our second edition of Newsies coming out mid-month! The kids are really enjoying using their creative abilities to develop this newspaper.

A.C.E Amigos

We are so excited to start our A.C.E Amigos this month! It will be twice a month, have a fun and yummy snack, enjoy science experiments, and play all kinds of fun games and crafts with their mentor. Our Amigos are all high school kids that are volunteering their time. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Prayer Requests

  • Prayers for Sean F. as he undergoes open heart surgery on March 1st.

Wellness Wednesdays

This year, instead of giving up something for Lent, try taking a different approach. As Luke 10:27 states, we are to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and love your neighbor as yourself. Try spending the Lenten season spending time enriching your heart, mind, body, and soul. Each week, we will offer different "classes" or opportunities for growth in each of these areas.


Of course all of these things still require some degree of “giving up”. If you attend one of these classes, you may have to “give up” some time you’d normally spend online, watching television, or attending another activity.


Don't worry about dinner!

We will offer dinner for $3 a person from 6:00 - 6:30 and then you can choose the class you would like to participate in from 6:30 - 8:00.


We are so excited to offer the following classes:

*an additional fee will be charged for supplies
