Choose Kindness

We would like to thank the ladies of Junior Auxiliary of Columbus for presenting their program, Choose Kindness, to our 2nd - 4th graders. Choose Kindness was started to address bullying in the younger grades to hopefully combat the behavior before it starts. The goal is for students to take away the following from this program: the ABCs of a positive bystander, the difference between bullying and conflict, and the various ways to address bullying in a positive manner.

Pinwheels for Peace

ACS students will create pinwheels and then write their thoughts about "war and peace / tolerance/ living in harmony with others". On International Day of Peace they will "plant" their pinwheels as a public statement and art exhibit/installation.

On September 19th keep a lookout for the pinwheels – the spinning of the pinwheels in the wind will spread thoughts and feelings about peace throughout the country and the world!

Parents are welcome to join us on September 19th, immediately following Mass, as we "plant" our pinwheels.

Save the Date

On November 8th, we will hold our Annual Art Auction with an Anchored in Faith theme at the Town Creek Pavilion, West Point. 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 Tuesday, September 3rd. There is an extra incentive for parents; for every 2 sponsorships you sell, you will receive 2 hours of volunteer credit.  

Your first opportunity to get involved is by selling raffle tickets, which went home in the brown envelopes on September 3rd. The first drawing will be held at Beats on the Blacktop, and the prize is a set of Apple AirPods. You must be present to win. The grand prize drawings will take place the night of the Art Auction. Grand Prize #1 is an IRobot Roomba. 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 18th should be turned into the office for the first drawing. Other tickets should be turned into the office by November 4th. 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 forms will be going out in brown envelopes periodically between now and the event. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door. This year, tickets can be purchased through the office or ONLINE at http://bidpal.net/acs2019
