Nearly $4000 Raised To Serve OthersToday at our annual Christmas Carol Sing, Jim Gajewski, Executive Director of Hope Clinic, was presented with a check for the almost $2000 raised by our students during the Haiti/Hope Multiplication Project in the fall. Through Jim's sharing, we hope that the students see that their efforts have real impact on the hundreds of lives impacted by the Hope Clinic ministry. Another check of almost $2000 was mailed to God's Littlest Angels Orphanage in Haiti.

The Champion's award recognizes a team that fully embraces FLL's core values, while achieving excellence and innovation in both the robot game and science project. As part of this season's theme (Animal Allies), AACS's team researched how to prevent bird strikes on airplanes, built a working prototype of their solution, and presented their project at the 2016 USA Bird Strike Conference in Chicago. They also designed, built, and programmed an autonomous robot to accomplish tasks in the robot game. Their robot (Smooth Jr.), won the Robot Performance award for achieving the highest score in the tournament (out of 40 teams). The team will next compete at the FLL state championship on December 17.

New chapel banner revealed on Grandparents’ Day
We had another beautiful Grandparents' Day in which we honor and celebrate the special bond between grandchildren and grandparents (and a few great grandparents)! During the day, the new chapel banner for the year was revealed as well. We thank God for the role that grandparents play in shaping the lives of students at Ann Arbor Christian School in helping to raise the next generation of Daniels and Esthers who will hold God close to their hearts despite the tremendous pressures and changes around them and show Spirit-filled wisdom, humility, and conviction on how they engage and love the world around them.
Deuteronomy 4:9: Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them slip from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to your children’s children.
Come to the Haiti/Hope Craft Fair & Pancake BreakfastEarly Christmas shopping? Come this Saturday from 8:30am-10:30am for our Haiti/Hope Craft Fair, featuring a huge assortment of amazing and creative items made by our very own students at Ann Arbor Christian School! The Craft Fair will occur during our Annual Pancake Breakfast, so bring friends and guests and enjoy great food, fellowship, and our students' projects. Please see the photos for a sneak peek!
