2017-2018 A Year in Review
This was a good learning experience for me. I learned how to do the things a doctor does, like surgery and checking reflexes. I also learned about investing and how to be a financial advisor.
At the beginning of the year, we did Bible studies with Mrs. Long and Jamison. We learned about special women in the Bible and also how to crochet. I really enjoyed it!
For Eclipse Day, we learned about the solar eclipse. We also got to watch it take place in August using our solar safety glasses. We did Experiments with Oreo cookies and had a solar day snack.
Last week, we planted the school garden. Mrs. Olson called us in groups to help. Everyone was happy doing this. I hope some of the church members will help take care of it during the summer.
Going to the Slim Goodbody science presentation was total fun. We learned about having a healthy body. After, Eliza, Ms. Schebo, and Mrs. Glazier took us to eat cupcakes.
For Bible we have to learn memory verses. We have a fun way to learn them. We make songs make clapping beats to help us remember them.
We picked apples at Mrs. Olson's farm. We backed them with Ms. Schebo. We put the ingredients in and we baked them. Then we ate them.
Mrs. Morrison taught Kindergarteners. She came every day in the morning to help. We love Mrs. Morrison.
Keigan's farm is a farm I will never forget. When we went there, some people were scared of the big dogs. When the baby cow sucked my finger, it felt weird. What I loved about Keigan's farm is when he grandma told us about the cows and dogs.
Last fall in social studies, we were studying about the Caribbean. We talked about Jamaica. We talked to Ms. Schebo's Jamaican friend, Trezzie. She sang us a song. It was fun!
Every year, grades 3-8 participate in a veteran essay contest. We write about a theme presented to their grades. There is the opportunity to win 1st, 2nd, or 3rd prize, and sometimes higher. This year, 6 students from our school place. We are truly appreciative.
We went to Osbourne Days last fall. It was so cool! We saw an old school house, made rope, and built a cabin. They even had buffalo stew. It was awesome!
We had a Reformation Festival in October. Pastor dressed up as Martin Luther. We tried some food from the past and a lot of it was very good. We watched a movie about martin Luther's life and that's how I now know much about him.
Men of God was really fun with Pastor Scott and Kolby. We learned how to work on cars and change a tire. We cooded some of the best food. We also learned how men had to step upp in the Bible. It was a fun experience!
Mrs. Olson had chicks and ducklings in her room this spring. I loved them so much! It was fun to watch them grow. They were so addictive to hold and pet.
It was fun collecting seeds at Wickiup Hill. We collected them to spread in the field near the school. Some got in my eyes, but I still had fun!
This month, the lower graders went to Ms. Schebo's house. We took turns learning how to bake brownies and cookies. It was fun!
I really appreciated everyone coming to the school to pray for us. It was very special. You were fighting for us through prayer. The fact that you care about each and every one of us amazes me. Thank you!
I liked that we got to dress up for Spirit Week. We had Hawaiian Day, Twin Day, Wacky Wednesday, and Pajama Day. My favorite was Pajama Day.
I want to thank Mr. Eugene and my Friend for helping take down the tree at the school. We didn't help becuase we wanted to get out of class but instead because it was the right thing to do. I learned the number one rule when you use an ax is to never lose a foot.
On a Saturday night, people brought delicious soups to the school. Church memebers as well as students came. The soups were so good. I like it because I love to eat.
We started school in August. I felt happy and excited. I didn't know anyone. Then I made friends. I still like school!
For 8th grade fundraising at school, we served pizza on Thursdays. There were healthy side dishes like vegetables and fruit. One slice of pizza was $1 and a bag of chips was 50 cents. We have earned much these last two years for our class trip and we thank all who gave.
We have a sweet pastor. He does worship and plays with us at school. He is amazing. Thank you Pastor Scott! Then we have Robert. He is an amazing guy who comes to play at the school. We could not ask for a better man! Thank you!
We got to do a fun thing. We made our own silly fairtales. We acted them out. It made people laugh and it was fun.
In Ms. Schebo's class, we played an escape room game. You have to work together as a team to figure out puzzles, answer questions, and find clues. It was so awesome!
We went to a park. We arn so fast that I ran out of breath. After, we ate and played.
Ms. Schebo invited us to her apartment (awesome apartment, by the way). She invited us for games, pizza, and snacks. The games were fun and the food was great! We definitely enjoyed it.
All who were able to come and prayed at the school. We gathered around the flag pole and held hands. When some prayed, I gelt the Spirit come upon me.
In September, we went for a biginning of the year picnic. We ate and played games. Then we went to a fire tower and climbed up the steps. It was so high. That was my favorite thing that day.
With Mrs. Olson, we learned in science how food is digested. We used bananas and bread to show the whole digestion process. We mashed it up, used lemon juice, and squeezed it through bags. It was good to learn.
In March, we celebrated reading. We read Dr. Seuss books, watched a movie, made hot air balloons, and got to dress up. It was fun!
Megabooking is a program for grades 5-8 at ACA. It gives students an opportunity to communicate with those in surrounding neighborhoods. We also spread God's Word. We are blessed to have this program!
While K-4 were at Slim Goodbody, the upper grades went to Olive Garden. The food was super delicious and we had a fun time. It was my first time being at Olive Garden and everything was amazing. We even listened to Italian music. My favorite thing was dipping the garlic breadsticks in my soup.
In Ms. Schebo's room, we got iPads this year. I like that we get to play learning games. W take turns and do not fight. It is fun!
Music Festival was really fun this year. We got to see all our friends from Outdoor School. We sang a lot and we got to learn how to play some new games.
I love the 5K. We ran it in September. It was fun because I got to run with friends. Afterward, we ate good food and got to play at the park.
In Ms. Schebo's room, one of the types of poems we studied was cinquains. We wrote one for Mother's Day on a paper flower pot. We traced our hands for stems and made petals from paint. It was hard but fun!
We have made many trips to the nursing home and enjoy talking with the residents. We perform and play bingo or outdoor games. The people are kind. It is so much fun!
The 6th graders went to Outdoor School in the fall this year. We had the opportunity to learn about animals and health. We made lots of new friends we will never forget!
We made thank you cards and birthday cards for many people this year. We got to decorate the cards beautifully. I like doing it because we can make people happy on the inside.
A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL
I Am So Thankful We Have Christian Education Available To Support Our Families!
Deuteronomy says, "These commandments are to be on your heart. Impress them on your children. Talk about them from the time you get up in the morning to when you fall into bed at night." As a parent, this reminded me of the importance of how my children spent the majority of their day. As an educator, I am committed to fulfilling this purpose.
At Andrews Christian Academy our desire is to ignite a love of learning, prepare students to serve, while ultimately impacting their hearts for eternity.
Adventist Education is recognized as an excellent education scholastically. We teach Godly values and non-compromising morals, while daily challenging our students to think critically, lead selflessly, and boldly reflect Christ's character.
Mrs. Olson, Principal
I will be forever grateful for the education that I received at Andrews Christian academy. No words can express the level of love and care the teachers have for every student. It goes beyond the classroom, they become family. God bless the staff at Andrews Christian Academy as they continue to touch the lives of the children that attend.
Andrews Christian Academy is a fun and loving environment. After six years of schooling there, I’ve learned the importance in my education and faith. It has impacted me and helped me transition into the woman I am today. From the amazing hardworking teachers to the great long lasting friendships, I grew to closer towards Christ with the help of ACA. I highly appreciate the people I’ve come to know and the knowledge I’ve gained
My wife and I felt like our son got a really good Christian education at Andrews Christian Academy. He was challenged academically and the best part was that the name of Jesus was lifted up every day! The teachers are very dedicated and loving. They care very much about every student. We highly recommend Andrews Christian Academy!
The best decision my mother ever made for me was enrolling my siblings and I at Andrews Christian Academy. The eight years I spent at the school were filled with laughter, lots of love, and fun. I will be forever grateful for what the school and the teachers have done for me. I wouldn't be where I am without their aid and support.
