Elementary Lunches: Please be sure to send a disposable fork or spoon with your child if they need one for soups, etc. The school does not supply utensils for lunch.
Study Tip of the Week: Flashcards are a super way to commit the material to memory. Whether it is multiplication facts or sight words, using flashcards can be a huge help, if they are used wisely. Here are a few tips:
- Have the student make the flashcards themselves. This is a valuable part of studying. Write the question on one side (5 + 6) and the answer on the back (=11). Make sure that the material is written correctly (spelling and neatness) so that the student is not studying incorrect or confusing material. Also, make sure that the answer is written lightly enough so that you cannot see it through the card.
- Have the student go through the stack of cards. Every card that they get right should go on the ‘right’ stack and the wrong ones go on the ‘wrong’ stack. Study the ‘wrong’ stack a few times and then go through it again dividing it into two stacks. This focuses on the information that needs the most attention. Eventually, remix the cards and test on all of them, repeating the process until they have it down.
- Break study time into small bites. It’s usually best to focus on two or three intense fifteen-minute sessions rather than a solid hour with the attendant distractions and bathroom breaks.

Lunchtime Gym Monitors Needed: Mr. Wiggins is looking for regularly scheduled volunteers to supervise students in the gym during secondary lunch (12:05-12:40 daily). Interested parents, please contact Mr. Wiggins.
ACCS Choral Festival: On Friday, November 11, the high school choir will be traveling to Spokane for the ACCS Choral Festival. Due to the number of high school students in choir, we will not be holding classes for the 9-12th grades on that day. If your high school student is not traveling with the choir, they should stay home on that day.
