Today is Veteran’s Day, formerly known as Armistice Day., which remembers the end of WWI – which went into effect on the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour.Today, we celebrate the services of all those that have served in the Armed Forces. While, we should always be appreciative of those that have served, today is the day that businesses make it a point to say thank you with discounts and free meals. We should also always keep the struggling veterans in our prayers. Many find themselves with sickness, both physical and mental as a result of their sacrifice for our countryOne of our alumni, Yahnie W., asked current ACS students to join her in participating in a campaign to write letters and cards to those in the military. Our students created over 150 cards for those who serve and protect us! ACS wishes to acknowledge this beautiful day!

Mrs. Garcia’s Coding Club was loud and AWESOME!! About 25 students were creating music using Make Code – the excitement of creating a beat was exciting and could be heard throughout the school. Next week the group will be using Scratch and will acquire the skills to use our Sphero Robots. They can’t wait. Exposure to different programs and tech skills enables our students to build skills for the future and spark an interest in technology …. now if they can create a program to grade papers!
