Vice Principal For Academics
At this time we are preparing for the end of the year activities which include final exams and graduation. Below are the dates and times for specific exams. Parents of seniors have already received information regarding exams and end of the year ac-tivities and responsibilities in the mail. Please be attentive to them and help to make sure your child does the best he/she can in order to properly reflect what has been learned throughout the year. For graduation activities, all seniors need to make sure all is in order – academically, financially, resource obligations like athletic uniforms and school materials. Please be aware, that senior i-Pads must be turned in as a condition for participating at the graduation ceremony on May 18.
Parents of the middle school will be, or already have received, specific information regarding the exams for middle school. Please be attentive to the details regarding dismissal and student pick up.
Our Academic Awards ceremony is Tuesday evening, May 7, starting at 7pm. Invitations have gone out so please respond fa-vorably to the invite. It is a great way to recognize those who have achieved academically throughout the year(s). Even if your child receives only one award, it is an accomplishment and should be treated as such. I am expecting 100% attendance by all invitees and their parents.
On a personal note, I am stepping down as the Vice principal for Academics as of July 1, 2013. I am remaining at ACND as a full time teacher and will be director of our foundations program, working with the students, parents and faculty to better serve the needs of those students. Over these last three years, I have tried to see that the Essential Elements of a Christian Broth-ers Education have been incorporated into the curriculum and into the instructional styles of the instructional staff. And, while I may miss some aspects of the position, I am certainly looking forward to being that classroom instructor again.

- Tuesday, June 4th: English 8:30 / Science 10:30
- Wednesday, June 5th: Math 8:30 / Social Studies: 10:30
- Thursday, June 6th: Theology 8:30 / Foreign Language: 10:30
