AC Advisory Council Meeting - Friday, January 6 at 7:30 a.m.

The next ACAC meeting will be on Friday, January 6 at 7:30 a.m. in Building D, Conference Room B. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. The first part of each meeting is typically set aside for Public/Parent comments and questions. Please come and let your voice and opinion be heard!

Recap of ACAC Meeting on December 2, 2016:

Thank you to Ms. Phillips for the holiday treats and festive mood! December's meeting included an update of the Student Voice committee's work, a report from the Budget Committee on November funding, which included new software, money for curriculum development and computer carts. Planning for AC Graduation 2017 was brought up! AC Senior student reps are needed as well as parents (from all classes) willing to volunteer to make the event a nice one for this year's seniors. Every year, each learning community hosts its own graduation event in addition to the event for all seniors at the Greek Theater. Last year, AC parents worked hard to make the AC graduation on par with the events of other learning communities. In previous years, let's just say the AC graduation  was underwhelming. If you have a senior and can volunteer for planning of this year's AC graduation, please reply to this email and we will be in touch with you! And if you have a frosh/soph/junior but would like to be involved to see a preview of coming attractions, we need you too! Last year many frosh/soph/junior parents volunteered to help with the event to 'pay it forward' and let senior parents enjoy the event. Hint, hint.
