The PTG’s Back to School Picnic is a great way for new and returning families, staff, and alumni to start off the school year.  Food, fun and games for all.  A wonderful time to meet the teachers, welcome new families, and see old friends.

 

Family Bingo Nights

Family Bingo Nights are loaded with games, laughter, food and prizes for all.  Come out for a night of silliness, shouts of "BINGO!" and family fun. 

 

Spooktacular

Celebrate Halloween in style at our annual SPOOKTACULAR!  Parents, teachers, and students always outdo themselves hosting this awesome Halloween party. Whether you stroll through Trick or Treat Lane to collect wonderful candies and prizes; dare to step into the Haunted House that will give you a fright; or just walk around and enjoy the music, food, face painting and games for all ages, Spooktacular is a Halloween extravaganza that you won't want to miss!   

 

Monthly Speaker Series

Every month the PTG hosts at least one workshop for parents on subjects relevant to having school aged children from PK to Grade 12. Learn many relevant tools that help parents navigate through the ever changing challenges facing our children.

 

Scholastic Book Fair

The PTG is happy to sponsor the Scholastic Book Fair to inspire the love of reading for all of our students, teachers, staff and parents.  Come join us and see the wide selection of books for all ages.

 

Holiday Bazaar

Join us for our annual Holiday Bazaar that is fun for the entire family.  Enjoy a holiday breakfast while carolers fill the room with festive music; Santa will be there to taking pictures with everyone; and there will be abundant supply of vendors selling unique items. Don't forget to enter the raffle where you could win amazing gift baskets and remember to get all your gifts wrapped for free! You won't want to miss this highlight event of the year! 

 

 

Elementary Talent Show

The Elementary Talent Show is one of our most endearing occasions of the year.  We are blessed with brave, amazing kids who are willing to stand up and put on a show like no other at ACS.  Lots and lots of fun for all involved from the parent volunteers to the teachers and of course the students! 

 

Celebration of Cultures

The ACS Celebration of Cultures is our most rewarding event.  ACS is a melting pot of families from different parts of the World and this is our opportunity to share our national origins through food, dance, dress and music. Our day begins with the Country Parade where everyone can show off their traditional dress and walk proudly through the parade. Country booths feature samples of ethnic foods and desserts, traditional music, flags and handicrafts.  There are also performances running every 15 minutes that show off national dances, routines and music.  It is a day filled with immense pride as we all share our traditions and cultures with our ACS community.

 

Teacher / Staff Appreciation Week

Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week is filled with gifts, food and many displays of our unending appreciation for all that our staff, teachers and administration does for our children.  This is our time as parents to remind our teachers how much we value all the time and effort that goes into making great educational experiences for our children.
