Highlights from Our Holiday Talent Show

We held our first holiday talent show and choir concert on December 15th, and it was the place to be seen!  ACCE and YCHS students showcased their vocal and piano talents and wowed our judges with their performances.  Thank you, ACCE community, for coming out to support our students' greatness!

Congratulations to our ACCE 200 Club Members for scoring at least 200 on your Winter NWEA Math Assessment!

Mental Health Day 2023 was a huge success!  Students learned from Mr. Fisher (our PE/Health Teacher) about healthy and unhealthy ways to deal with stress, identified strategies that worked to calm and chill their minds out, so they could focus on school.  Students created art, moved their bodies, did Yoga, visited the new Zen Room and had a wonderful catered lunch by Stuf'd.  Thanks to the Corner Health Center, Underdawg Nation and Si of Relief Massage Therapy!
