All you need is LOVE!

 Thank you to all our amazing families for voting us Best of Parenting for 13 years in a row! We wanted to celebrate by giving everyone their very own Ace the frog to take home. 

Ace is the name of our mascot for The Academy. He was named by a former Academy family. A.C.E. stands for Academy Children Excel. We couldn't agree more!!

Pumpkin Contest

 We are always so impressed with the hard work all the classrooms do for our annual pumpkin decorating contest. You can easily see the creativity everyone put into their pumpkin.

We place the pumpkins on display so all families had the chance to vote for their favorite. The classroom with the most votes won $100 worth of new supplies for their room from Discount School Supply. Check out all our awesome pumpkins this year.

Witches Brew

 Our Pre-K class had so much fun incorporating math with their spooooooky witches brew! Everyone had their own recipe that they had to follow. Some of the fun ingredients included bones, pumpkins, vampire teeth and even eyeballs. Once they followed the recipe and added their ingredients into the witch's caldron they had to give it a big stir. Check out all the fun they had.

National Fire Safety Month

 Visit from Ace the Fireman


This week at school we practiced all our safety drills as October is national fire safety month. We practiced our intruder, fire, and tornado drills this week. The highlight of our week was getting a visit from Ace the Fireman. He came to our school to teach us all about how to stay safe and what to do in case of a fire emergency. We also watched a video about what the inside of a fire station looks like. It was so much fun to see what happens when we need to call for help.
