    A Community Service Program for ACA Students

     ACA’s vision statement speaks about the importance of developing moral leadership skills in our students. The Griffin Goodfellows is a voluntary program designed to keep ACA students ever mindful of their responsibilities to their country, their community, and each other.

    If your student performs the required number of community service hours by May 4, 2018, they will receive a certificate and be acknowledged for their acts of service on their Awards Day. Students eligible for a Griffin Goodfellow Award are expected to complete the following service hours:

    •  3rd grade = 10 hours
    •  4th -  5th grade =  15 hours
    •  6th -  8th grade =  20 hours
     All hours need to be recorded at home.  If your child is completing service hours for a house of worship, social or non-profit group, those hours may be used for the Griffin Goodfellows program as well.

    To help you tally the hours, a copy of this form is always available at the front office and on the ACA website. Please discuss this program with your child if you wish to participate and return the sheet to school by May 4, 2018.

    If you have any questions, please ask your child’s teacher or the campus.
