Christmas ConcertA beautiful concert from all of our students yesterday sharing with parents, alumni, and community about Jesus being the light in our world. What a beautiful representation of God's love and presence in this Christmas season! "The whole world was lost in the darkness of sin; Like sunshine at noonday His glory shone in, Come to the Light, 'tis shining for thee; Once I was blind, but now I can see;
The Light of the world is Jesus; The Light of the world is Jesus. Sweetly the Light has dawned upon me, The Light of the world is Jesus."
Alumni Reconnect NightWe had a great turnout for our first Alumni Game/Reconnect Night. With alumni present, the AACS varsity boys basketball lost a tough game to Emerson 35-34. Afterword, the alumni joined in games of basketball, dodgeball, volleyball and eclipse ball. It was great to see so many former students (15 in total), to get a chance to catch up with them, and to see how God is working in their lives since they graduated from AACS.
Medieval FeastThis evening was the annual Medieval Feast, a hallmark event for our seventh graders as part of their social studies curriculum. It featured parents preparing food items for the feast, students playing different roles, several skits and re-enactments by students, and music, dancing, and sword-fighting from a professional medieval performance group.
Pilgrim DayOur fifth graders enjoyed a day of candle making, yummy foods, and historical sports for their Pilgrim Day. They came to school in their own costumes and were able to live a "day-in-the-life" of a pilgrim.

Grandparent’s DayWhat a wonderful Grandparents' Day we had yesterday morning! We are so grateful for the role that our grandparents play in the lives of their children and their children's children. May God bless them. "I will establish my covenant as an everlasting covenant between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you." Genesis 17:7

There was so much energy in the building with parents, teachers, and students all excited to come together and kick off this new school year!
