Important Information for Homecoming 2018

Posted on September 14th, 2018 by cnickels

Homecoming Weekend is here! Get ready to celebrate this fun AC tradition with the important information below.

PARENT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Parent volunteers are needed for various roles on Saturday, September 22nd. Each year our parent volunteers do a wonderful job of helping us run the Homecoming activities. This year we are asking parents to volunteer through MyAC. Volunteering includes fun activities like bringing in a baked good, setting up popcorn, or helping the Lower School prepare for the Lower School Banner Parade.

Sign up online for these or other fun ways you can help make Homecoming 2018 a success!

BLUE/WHITE TEAMS

Students in grades 1-12 will participate in a fun-filled afternoon of activities with their blue/white buddies on Tuesday, September 18th. Every AC student has been assigned to the Blue Team or the White Team and should dress in their team color on Blue/White Day.

Please remember the new date is Tuesday, September 18th, and students can dress in their team colors and wear sneakers. Also, this year our Blue/White team partners are gender-neutral.

Nursery, pre-kindergarten, and kindergarten students will come out and cheer on both the Blue and White teams!
