Educational Resources for School Closures
ACS Parents - During this extended school closure period, the ACS teachers wanted to provide a space where they could share resources with parents that might be fun and helpful for our students. These are in addition to many that have already been shared with you by the teachers! We will continue to add resources as we go, and did not want to overwhelm by emailing when we found a great source. The first list contains resources from our specials teachers. The second list contains other resources that may be very valuable as you support your kids at home.
Resources from ACS Specials Teachers:
