The Montala staff is off to an exciting start as we begin to produce the newest edition of the yearbook. However, we are a small group and have come to the realization that there are more activities than we can cover by ourselves. In order to get the best coverage possible for all groups, we are asking for your help.
Our publisher, Herff Jones, has a program that allows our school community to submit pictures for use in the yearbook. If you are at a game, on a field trip or in the classroom and capture a great memory, please share it with us. Though we will not be able to use every photo shared, we will certainly use as many as we can.
To help, simply go to
http://www.hjeshare.com and enter the code: acamontala. Or, you can copy and paste the URL,
http://www.hjeshare.com/eShare/Index.jsp?code=acamontala to bypass the login page. Once there, you will have the opportunity to enter the site and upload photos. You will be prompted to enter the names and grades of students as well as a description of the event in the picture before the process is completed. Please be sure to complete this information to aid the staff in transferring the images to our files.
If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Cook at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your support and assistance in creating a memorable yearbook for all of us to enjoy.

Due to the generosity and support of our students, parents, employees, and community stakeholders at this year's Spring Benefit Dinner, we were able to purchase a coach bus and have it painted in ACA's colors. This bus is an answer to our prayers and is a much needed addition to our school. After this bus was unveiled during an assembly program on Monday, May 15, 2012, it was announced that an anonymous donor had contributed enough funds for ACA to purchase a SECOND coach bus like the first. What a blessing!!!! Thanks to all who helped us with this year's project.
