Principal’s Newsletter – June 6, 2018


Welcome June! We are down to the last couple of weeks of school – we’re almost done! This is my last official Newsletter for the 2017-2018 School Year.

First, the fire drill we had this week was our regularly scheduled fire drill. Tuesday’s Lock Down and Shelter in Place were due to a student threat received at Shull School. I know many different versions of what happened at Shull School are circulating on social media and only the Police Department has all the facts. We, at ACS, take every notice from the Perth Amboy Police Department with the upmost seriousness and act according to our Emergency Plan – we did exactly what we have outlined in this type of situation. Our student’s safety is our number one priority. I know some panic set in when parents called the school office and no one answered– please know that we don’t pick up until the lockdown is over. I sent the school wide REMIND to keep everyone informed and I hope this helped. I am happy that no one was hurt in our neighboring school and that the Police Department acted quickly and God watched over all. These are turbulent times and we have to be ready and vigilant. I thank my teachers for being calm and following our protocol. Any questions please give me a call.

Second, a very special thank you goes to Mrs. Pickering and the 8th graders for organizing Field Day. All our students had a good time and our 8th graders did an amazing job coordinating the activities. Third, 2018-2019 calendar is attached.

Lastly, I invite all our friends and family tomorrow, June 8th to celebrate the Liturgy with us at 8:45am and then come back to the school for a presentation to our Sister Thomas and Sister Yosaphata. We have a surprise .

Please call the office if you have any questions or concerns.
