August Newsletter

After conferring with the City of Atchison and Emergency Preparedness Teams, ACCA has opted to close on Monday, August 21st.  After reviewing the increasing projections of visitors to Atchison, the potential traffic issues and general safety concerns during the Eclipse on Monday, August 21st, we will close our center.  Safety first, always.  Thank you for understanding.  Safety glasses will be sent home with each child.

We are looking forward to continuing care and adding class time to your child’s daily schedule.  Information about Nursery, Early Preschool/Fab 4 and Preschool will be sent  home the 3rd week of August.  Each child (except Kindergarten/School Age) will need to have an extra (weather appropriate) change of clothes and a new toothbrush to leave here at the center.  Infant/Toddler will need two weather appropriate outfits left in the cubbies.

Even though USD#409 begins on Tuesday, August 15th, ACCA will begin our Preschool classes on Tuesday, August 22nd.  Our teachers need those few days to get their rooms ready and to shift from summer program to our school program.  SBCS (1/2 day) and Trinity Lutheran both begin on Wednesday August 16th.

Kindergarten-Readiness Preschool, will be receiving an invitation to our open house.  The invitations will come in the mail during the first part of August.  Open house will be held on Friday, August 18th from 4-5:30pm.  We are asking each parent to come with their preschool child to drop by and visit all centers.  Your child will be able to meet their teachers and support staff, visit their rooms and become acquainted with the 2nd floor.  It is an exciting time for the children.

We will be updating our files for all children in the center.  We are requesting that you sign the bus transportation forms for your kindergarten through 6th graders from USD #409, either during enrollment or you may sign the form in the ACCA office.  SBCS and Trinity Lutheran we will need you to sign the transportation forms in the office for kindergarten through 6th graders, at your convenience.

Thank you so much for paying your account in full each and every month.  We are able to offer the highest quality and educational care as possible when accounts are paid in full.

My wish and prayer is for all children to have a wonderful time, enjoy the great learning experiences and close relationships during their time at ACCA.  I want them to look back and say “I was loved, treasured and wanted at ACCA”!! I fulfill my life’s mission each time this happens.  ACCA is blessed with a wonderful school family that also supports this mission!  We strive very hard and go the extra mile to accomplish goals for your child.  Thank you for allowing us to nurture and educate your child!  It is so wonderful to have former students come and visit and reminisce about our times together.

Carrie Sowers, Director
