Y'all! Check out this BEARY Good Thing! The very first ACES Welcome Wagon literally rolled out last Friday. Our Quest classes have formed a Welcome Committee to welcome new students as they join our ACES family. Each month, students that have moved to ACES that month will be welcomed by a student on the committee and receive a bag full of goodies, such as a PAWSome bracelet, gummy bears, and a handmade card. The first Welcome Wagon of the year also visited our new 2023-24 staff members. The students were so excited to hear about some great things to look forward to this year, and our committee members exhibited excellent leadership skills. We are AC! #CKH *More to come to this album

ACES Message: Attendance is crucial in the elementary grade levels. Each day that a child is late for or misses school, they are missing vital instructional time on skills that they need to know. We urge all of our parents to ensure that their child is present and on time daily so that we can capture their heart, capture their mind, and grow them intellectually, emotionally, and socially.
ACES Message: Parents of car riders, please ensure that the ACES car rider line leaves ample room for our buses to make it safely to their appropriate unloading locations in the mornings. While the line isn't moving, the ACES car rider line should not go past the edge of the bleachers. This will allow the required spacing for buses to safely pass through. The safety of our students, staff, and community is always our top priority and we truly appreciate your patience and understanding. Have a wonderful evening!

Please welcome new staff member, Stevie Ligon. My name is Stevie Ligon. This is my 5th year teaching special education, and I absolutely love it!! I couldn't see myself doing anything else! I enjoy getting to spend time with my husband and our 3 children, going on beach trips, and reading. I am so excited about my new Journey at ACES.
Please welcome new staff member, Megan Welsh. Megan is joining our third grade team! Hi! My name is Megan Welsh, and I am so excited to join ACES’s third grade team this year! I’ve been a teacher for six years in both general education and in special education. I earned my degrees from Spring Hill College in Alabama and from the University of Notre Dame in Indiana. I’ve lived a little bit of everywhere (including Wisconsin, South Carolina, Texas, and Oklahoma, to name a few!), but am thrilled to call Corinth my new home! My family includes my mom, dad, and younger brother, who is studying to be a vet. I also have a silly little rescue dog named Floop. He likes taking walks, escaping from his kennel, chasing tennis balls, and making nests out of laundry and blankets! When I’m not teaching, I like reading mystery and fantasy books, trying new recipes, doing arts and crafts, and binge-watching my favorite TV show (Parks and Rec). I can’t wait to start this fantastic year!
