ACS is the top school in the state for the fifth year in a row in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge. Our students rock! Overall, our school logged 672,794 reading minutes and finished in the top 40 worldwide. We are so proud of our students, and all of their hard work! Just because summer is over, doesn't mean you should stop reading. Keep up the good work! Representatives from Scholastic visited our campus on November 8th to present us with our official award plaque and banner. A huge thank you goes out to our librarian, Mrs. Doumit, for coordinating this program every year.
#iGiveCatholic is the first-ever online giving day for the Catholic community. It is a call to share of our blessings with the Church and those the Church helps and supports in our communities. This year, #iGiveCatholic is being celebrated by the Diocese of Jackson along with five other dioceses. The goal of the #iGiveCatholic Giving Day is to inspire our Catholic community to come together with giving in support of organizations that shape our souls: our parishes, schools, ministries and not-for-profit organizations. #iGiveCatholic’s goal is to deliver $1,500,000 to our Catholic organizations in a 24-hour period.
So, on November 28th visit www.igivecatholic.org and search for Annunciation Catholic School. Please consider giving a minimum donation of $25.

On October 27th, we will hold our Annual Art Auction with a Fall Into Art theme at the Trotter Convention Center. The funds raised by this event will support our commitment to providing the highest quality education possible for our students. We ask that you participate by selling raffle tickets, selling event tickets, donating a silent auction item, sponsoring the event, and/or by simply giving your time to help set-up, clean-up, etc. Forms to sponsor the event and donate an auction item went home in brown envelopes on Wednesday. There is an extra incentive for parents; for every 2 sponsorships you sell, you will receive 1 hour of volunteer credit.
Your first opportunity to get involved is by selling raffle tickets, which went home in the brown envelopes on August 28th. The first drawing will be held at Concert on the Green, and the prize is a FitBit Charge II donated by the Floor Gallery. You must be present to win. The grand prize drawings will take place the night of the Art Auction. Grand Prize #1 is a Nikon Camera with Photography Lessons by Katie McDill. Grand Prize #2 is one semester of free tuition for one child. You do not have to be present to win at the Grand Prize drawings.
Raffle tickets sold prior to September 14th should be turned in to the office for the first drawing. Other tickets should be turned in to the office by October 25th. The student/family with the most ticket sales will win a $100 gift certificate to the Uniform Company. If you need additional raffle tickets, please contact the office.
It's never too early to buy your event tickets. The order form also went home in brown envelopes on Wednesday.
