In April, over 300 students from ABSS take the stage to showcase their talents in music and dance. They spend many hours in class and after school perfecting their performances. This year the show will be held on April 1st at 7pm at the Williams High School auditorium. The money raised will go back into the schools through our Arts Grants program, as well as supporting ACE programs such as the Classroom Closet.
Our first annual Touch-A-Truck fundraiser was held on Sunday, April 30th, 2017 at the Gala Shopping Center in front of our very own Classroom Closet. It is a family-friendly event with opportunities for children to explore a variety of vehicles all in one place. The money raised from this event helps ACE make a greater impact in the community.
Political Candidate Forums:
In October, ACE hosts candidates for school board, county commissioner, and state offices to discuss their positions and views on education.
Dear Citizens of Alamance County,
We have some changes coming to the Classroom Closet that we would like to share with you. This is our letter addressed to you:
Imagine, from the comfort of your own sofa, or during your planning period at school, having the luxury of selecting items to place in your virtual cart to be delivered right to your classroom.
ACE is taking Classroom Closet into the 21st Century by closing the physical brick and mortar store and creating an "Amazon" model, where you can shop online for all your classroom supply needs.
We believe this new model will be convenient and more accessible for all Alamance County teachers.For a smooth transition, Classroom Closet will take a brief hiatus while we work to move operations online. The new platform will be up and running early this spring.
As a member of the Classroom Closet, you can continue to shop once each nine weeks. There will be very few limits on the supplies available and we hope this new online shopping model will be more useful for everyone.
If you don’t have a membership, go to www.aceed.org to sign up today.
Our mission at ACE is to strengthen community support for quality public education. Our first goal is to support Alamance County teachers. We believe by taking this new direction, we are meeting our mission and goals, making a greater impact in our Alamance County schools.
As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
