Cultural Arts Week

Did you know that we say cookie instead of biscuit because of the Dutch influence in America? Students at ACE will celebrate “It’s the Netherlands (not Holland)” for Cultural Arts Week, May 24 - 28. Students will be enveloped in Dutch music, art, history, and fun traditions. 

If you have any items to share, please contact Sydney Mercurio or Jeanette van Ginhoven.

Greenville Middle Academy 6th Grade Band

Hey ACE 5th graders, consider joining Greenville Middle Academy's 6th Grade Band.
In the fall, students will be able to try their instruments of interest. And a parent information packet will be sent home with each student. This packet will explain how to obtain an instrument and everything you need to know about getting started in band. Please do not purchase or rent an instrument until you have received this packet, because it contains valuable information concerning instruments and supplies. 

Here is more information on the Greenville Middle Academy Band.
