Parents and Students,
As we finialize plans for our "NTI school year", please know that many plans are being developed and work continues for when school resumes in the Fall of 2020.
As of April 27, 2020 ... we have 4 classes in each grade level. We have 5 Related Arts classes: PE, Science, Library/Spanish, Creative Arts (Music, Art, and Drama), and NEW - Technology (with an emphasis on keyboarding), plus we will continue to have band and orchestra. We will have Primary Enrichment and GT service teachers, two intervention teachers, along with a District Mental Health Specialist and a Child Guidance Specialist.
All classes will be held inside the main building for the first time in many years.
Many hours of planning have taken place to offer some very exciting programs at ACE next year, while continuing with some of our traditional activities.
There will be a list of programs coming very soon, but we will continue with: Choir, Archery, STLP, Academic Team, Cross Country, Jump Rope and Coding, plus we will be adding a STEP team and a Bucket Drumming curriculum to our Creative Arts. We will still have the Veteran's Day program, the Holiday concert, and Talent Show. Plus we will have: Math Night, Reading Night, FUN RUN, Trunk or Treat, Yule is Cool, Living History Musuem, Sevice Learning Projects, Black History Month, I Love to Read Week/Career Days, Roller Skating, and Field Day.
ACE will also be adopting the AMPLIFY Science Curriculum and a new Social/Emotional Learning Curriculum. Teachers are planning and learning about these new endeavors as we speak.
I assure you that the ACADEMIC, Extra-Curricular, and Speical Programs will remain as strong as ever! Things may look a little different, but ACE will continue to be a place where ALL our EAGLES SOAR!
