Principal’s Newsletter – March 22, 2018


Dear ACS Families,
Happy Spring….well, almost! This last snow storm took us all by surprise. Apologies for the late change in the school cancellation decision Wednesday night. I was hoping a delayed opening was the best option, but once Perth Amboy Public Schools closed we decided to close as well. Unfortunately, we do have to extend our school year by one day, so please note that Monday, June 18th (12:30 dismissal) is now the last day of school and report card distribution day. Graduation days will NOT be changed.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all our parents who participated in the Gertrude Hawk candy sale. I know it is an obligation for our Plan 1 Tuition Plan families but I am grateful that everyone went above and beyond with this candy sale. If you have any issues with your order please email me as soon as possible. All FSA fundraisers subsidize tuition costs and all funds come back to our students. FSA fundraising supports our building’s maintenance, special programs, curriculum enhancements and special projects.
A few important reminders….
• We are waiting to see if Bishop Ahr & Union Catholic High Schools will reschedule the play performance. If they will not, we will either return money to parents or apply it to the Liberty Science Trip (May Trip).
• Please review our calendar and menu REGULARLY – both are available online.
• Apple Store Field Trips: Please remember we need both permission slips!
Tuesday, March 27th – Gr. 2 & Gr. 3
Wednesday, March 28th – Gr. K & Gr. 1 Thursday, April 12th – Gr. 4 & Gr. 5

Thank you for all your support! Please if you have any questions or concerns, give me a call.

God Bless,
Mrs. Shumny
