11/4/10 and 11/11/10 Spirit Days

During this brief hiatus on the blog, the Academy has hosted two more A.S.C. spirit days! First on November 4th, we had 'Crazy Hair Day', and then just yesterday on the 11th, we had 'Wacky Sweater Day'. We got a nice turnout of people, so here are a few pictures of our students participating!

Also on the A.S.C. agenda, we surveyed a large chunk of the student body to see what they would like our current budget to be used for, and we received an overwhelming response to kleenex in the classrooms. It IS that season, and we're going to be needing alot more than just harsh paper towels. So starting Monday, we will be walking around handing out kleenex boxes to all the classrooms, and if we have extra, to the student lounges!

10/20/10 Spirit Day

In honor and remembrance of the recent gay-bullying suicide cases across the country, the Academy took part in a worldwide support-driven day to wear purple to school, work, or casual errands. Faculty and students alike came through for the cause and have helped to spread the message throughout our building, our city, and our homes. This vicious hatred will NOT be tolerated.

 Our school is a family, and we will support it no matter the race, gender, orientation, or age. Spread the love!

10/11/10 Meeting

At the last A.S.C. meeting, we discussed several projects to be put into work at the Academy. The first of these is livening our student lounges. We all know that anxious yellow color can be a little, well, unnerving. So we'll be working with our staff to try and change the paint, as well as utilizing student suggestion in hanging some new posters with contemporary AND classical art references.

We believe this will help boost the student's day while simply giving us an update to keep us fresh, even for visitors!

The next topic we discussed was a possible one day Art retreat, held right here at the school, perhaps on a Friday. This retreat would feature visiting artists, workshops, lectures, and much more. The faculty has taken a strong liking to this idea, so we hope to make progress on that very soon!

Also coming soon, suggestion boxes for the lounges!

There are a few more side projects we're working on and we'll keep you up to date on what all is going on! Stay tuned, and feel free to see us at our next meeting, Monday the 18th.
