Did you know that you can purchase gas with your Reloadable Grocery Cards at the Loaf N Jug near the Outlets, the King Soopers gas stations and at Safeway? You can! You can also reload the King Soopers Cards at the Loaf N Jug and the King Soopers gas stations and use them to purchase items in their stores.  For every $1 loaded on the cards, ACS earns 5% back.  Don’t have a Reloadable Grocery Card? Pick one up at the ACS front office for $5. The cards come preloaded with $5, so essentially, they are free!

Our Staff Appreciation Breakfast is NEXT Wednesday March 14 AND we still NEED a FEW ITEMS!  If you are in need of volunteer hours, this is a great way to get them in and do something nice for our amazing ACS staff!  They REALLY enjoy and appreciate it. Any time spent shopping, preparing and bringing your item to ACS counts toward your volunteer hours, as well as 1 hour for every $10 spent on items for the event.  For any questions, please contact the ACS Social Committee at

It is VERY important to have your donations delivered to ACS before 7:30 am to give the teachers time to eat before they start their day. We try to have enough to feed 75 teachers/staff.

**Please be sure to use disposable serving dishes. Include any recipes you can. The teachers would love to know how to make your delicious creations!

The Social Committee has started planning Staff Appreciation Week (SAW) for our wonderful staff at ACS.  SAW will be held the week of May 7th – May 11th.  Our theme this year will be the “ACS Walk of Fame”…think Hollywood!

Please sign up to donate items or help with this event.

We are working on gifts that will be handed out to staff during SAW.  We are needing your help to accomplish this by donating items and helping us put together gifts. This is an easy and fun way to earn volunteer hours.  Remember, all of your time spent shopping or putting gifts together can be counted towards volunteer hours, as well as, 1 hour for every $10 you spend.

Please email with questions or concerns.  Thanks for your continued help and support!

We will be doing one last submission in May (not the typical deadline) so please get your Box Tops into the school before May 11th so we can include them in the submission – remember, they expire! 

The Hertzler Family is the February winner of the gift card!  Great Job – your card will be at the front office by Friday March 9th.

Have you donated to ACS during the 2017 year? At the Spring “A Night in Monte Carlo” Gala or the “Let’s Get Silly” Fall Fundraiser?

Contact for a donation letter.

If you gave through sign in, go to My Account, My Donations, and hit Send Receipt.
