At ACA, we do our very best to celebrate! Celebrating accomplishments both big and small, go a long way to increase morale and to put appreciation where appreciation is due. One of our school wide values is Thoughtfulness and ACA Integrated Academy of Studies students exemplified that kindness when at their student assembly celebrating student academic achievements, students wanted to turn it around and also celebrate the amazing teachers at ACA.
This whole effort was student inspired and student led by the Leadership class.
Students announced the awards and said a small blurb about why they were presenting that award to the teacher. Teachers were very pleasantly surprise as they went up to receive their awards.
