Sponsor a blackjack table:

We have 6 blackjack tables still available.  If you know of any businesses that would like to be a sponsor and have their name displayed on their table, please let us know.  They are also welcome to provide business cards or other small give aways at the table if they'd like.  A sponsorship for blackjack table is $500.

Know of a linen rental place?

We are needing leads for anyone that has access to black table cloths that we might be able to borrow - We'll need a few that would fit 60" round tables, but we also need some that will fit rectangle tables up to 72'x30' and square cocktail tables that are 2' square.

Table Service Connections?

We'd also welcome any leads on wholesale pricing for disposable dishes, silverware, napkins and glasses (water, wine and beer).

Time to help in the office? We can use extra hands in the office for data entry and auction organization. Please let us know when you might help. Thanks!


§ Monday, Jan. 15th, Martin Luther King Day; No School.

§ Tues., Jan. 16th: Enrollment for the 2018-2019school year begins. Enrollment forms will be distributed for current children and their siblings at the beginning of each class period. Please be prepared to complete your forms and pay your enrollment fees. (Forms will be given to the M/W/F classes on Wed. and the M/F class on Friday.)

§ Saturday, Jan. 20th: Tour of school for prospective parents

§ Wed., Jan. 31st: Open Enrollment Day for new families



Because our Fundraiser is earlier this year, our Grandparent Days are scheduled a little bit later this year. These days are such special times for the children and grandparents alike. We hope that each child can have a grandparent, or two or three or four, come to share in an hour of fun! If a grandparent is unavailable, we hope another special friend might attend. (Because of limited space inside as well as parking, we ask that parents resist the temptation to tag along. Thanks! The schedule is as follows:

Thank You’s

We are very grateful for the kind families who made donations to the school during the holiday season. Big Acorn thanks go out to Sue Oppenheimer, Rebecca Nathan and the Oppenheimer Family Foundation, Boeing Gift Match, Rugely Ferguson Foundation, David and Stacy Schlagel, the Vaughan Foundation, Joe and Diane Ness, Brent and Liza Warrilow, Mark Garza and Jacqueline Ruiz, John and Dannielle Brenner, The Kerr Family Charitable Foundation, and the Julian Lange Family Foundation for their generous gifts. Our hearts are warmed by your thoughtful support of The Acorn! The school could never exist without your kind and generous donations.


We also appreciate the Murphy family who raked and removed leaves from our entire playground over the holidays. Thanks, too, for those who volunteered to help move mulch and sand to the playground: Johnny Sytsma, Brian Shipley, Chris Bain, Jeff and Amanda Hale, Ramon Lopez, Billy and Wendy Starnes. Big thanks to Johnny Sytsma for donating all the materials!
