Director's Corner

Hello Families!


Happy September and welcome to ACPS! I hope everyone is having a great start to the school year! We enjoyed our first week with your children. Everyone is settling into a routine and having a great time learning, playing and meeting new friends. Thank you for trusting us with your children. You will receive a monthly newsletter like this once a month and periodically 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.


Thanks,

Ms. Devin

The Frigid Frog Fundraiser - Thursday the 16th

Come join us for Max's Frigid Frog on Thursday right after school. We will start opening preschool doors at 12:15pm so that there won't be a long line of parents getting snow cones. This is a great time for fellowship to meet other preschool parent's. We hope everyone stays after school for a little while. Flyers are coming home in your child's folder.
