Every year in the spring, ACA hosts it's Community and Volunteer Appreciation event. This year's event packed out our gym full of ACA staff, parents, volunteers, community organizations, elected officials and business partners. We work hard to nurture those relationships through joint endeavors throughout the year. We all get together to enjoy lunch and to recognize a few of our outstanding partners.
The theme of this years lunch was "Impact". Impact means to have a strong effect on someone or something. And that is exactly what our volunteers and community partners have on ACA. A tremendous impact!
ACA, 8th grader Cassandra Lopez gave a great speech about being a student at ACA since she was in kindergarten and the importance and impact our volunteers and community members have at ACA.
