1st Graders Studying Dinosaur Fossils

No Bully Zone!

ACA's Campus has been all a flutter with some very special guests for the last few weeks bringing a very special message. Arizona Charter Academy has partnered with World Slam Dunk Champions Kenny Dobbs and Gary Smith and the makers of the no bully app, Raadr to bring an amazing series of No Bully activities to the campus.
