🎓Drumroll please! This March we are kicking off our Early College promotion! Did you know that ACS has an Early College (EC) Program? Today we will be kicking off our EC campaign with Mrs. Cordes, our EC Coordinator. From now until April 11th (when EC applications are due from 10th grade students) we will be highlighting our program, student accomplishments, college resources available to our students, and more! Today's feature is the introduction of Mrs. Cordes, our EC Coordinator! Did you know that ACS has a partnership with Alpena Community College that allows our EC Coordinator to have an office at the ACC campus in Alpena? Every Wednesday Mrs. Cordes can be found in her ACC office, room 110A in the Newport Center. Being on campus allows Mrs. Cordes to better support and meet with our full-time college students. This week when Mrs. Cordes was on campus, she ran into two of our 5th year EC students studying in the library and two of our past EC students studying! Join us March 16th to learn more about Early College. Current ACS 10th graders can apply to EC at: bit.ly/ACS-EC-App #AlconaSchools #EarlyCollege
Check it out! 6th-12th grade students are invited to join the fun run/walk club! Please contact Ms. Marsh at email@example.com or Ms. Oliver at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. #AlconaSchools #FunRunClub
ACS will now be in session for a 1/2 day on April 7th. Originally this was a scheduled day off school. Please get in touch with the appropriate office with questions or concerns.
