Principal’s Newsletter – April 12, 2019


Dear ACS Families,

It has been a very busy two weeks!  We had Parent Teacher Conferences and Report cards were given out.  If you were unable to make it, a conference is mandatory in order to receive the report card.

We also participated in the exciting Perth Amboy Art Show Case on April 4th – the Mayor was thrilled with ACS’s student’s art work!  There’s more….We hosted a Lenten Retreat for classes of 2019 and 2020 which included, St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic School in Passaic and St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic School in Minersville, PA. It was a day of reflection and inspiration.  This week our 8th graders participated in a Diocese of Metuchen Teen Outreach, “Because I’m Worth it”, an amazing presentation on abstinence and making good choices. 

This week also included a visit from Sisters of the Incarnate Word and Bishop Rabiy – we love to show our school pride and give tours!  We then celebrated the survey Raffle Winners and thank all our parents and students for completing their surveys for our AdvancED re-accreditation.  We thank our Principals for the day for the dress down day – they did a fantastic job!

We ended the week with celebrating our Honor Roll for the third Marking Period – Congratulations to all!
