Senior Buddy Tradition Continues at ACA

Senior Buddy Tradition Continues at ACA

Our students were given the opportunity to step up and help collect supplies to send over to the Ukraine through Dalraida church of Christ.  We had buckets and supply lists available to give our students the opportunity to play a big part in this service project.  We had a full week dedicated to prayer over the Ukraine; each morning we would have a devotional and pray for specific people involved in the war.  After the whole week of prayer ended, we had every bucket filled and more bags to send over for anything extra they may need. We even had a class who wrote scripture in Ukrainian. It has been amazing to watch these students get so involved in helping others.  This has opened the eyes of many just how blessed we truly are.

ACA Welcomes Back Tim Perry!

ACA Welcomes Back Tim Perry

ACA is excited to announce the return of ACA legend Tim Perry.  Tim has been part of ACA’s story in several powerful ways over the last 35 years. He previously served as Athletic Director and Head Football Coach from 1985 -1988 and then returned as Athletic Director and Head Football Coach again from 1991 – 2000.  Tim will come home to ACA beginning July 1st, 2022, to lead ACA’s efforts in athletic advancement, coach mentoring, and leveraging over 40 years in coaching to achieve excellence in enhancing ACA’s community partnerships.  Tim comes to ACA with extremely strong connections in the River Region community.  He is widely known and respected in our community and his legacy of Christian leadership has impacted generations of our ACA alumni family.
Tim and his loving wife, Gayle, of 21 years, and his two stepdaughters, Ashley Coker Heim and Amanda Coker Alford, (both ACA graduates) have each left their mark on ACA.  Earlier this year, Tim completed his 41st year in his coaching career.  Most recently, he served as the athletic director and head football coach at Wetumpka High School from 2011-2021.  Additionally, he served as the Offensive Coordinator at Harding University from 2008-2009 and from 2001-2008 he served as the Head Football Coach at Central Arkansas Christian School. The CAC Mustangs won the 3-A State Championship in 2004, the first in the school’s history, and returned to the 3-A State Championship in 2005.
ACA’s Head of School, Mr. Greg Glenn, had this to say about Mr. Perry, “His name is synonymous with excellence.  In athletics and in spiritual development, he has tirelessly worked to build students into the adults that our world needs – humble, achievement-oriented, team-minded, confident, and Christ-like. His heart and his passion to serve are going to be well received on this campus.  Tim also comes to us with a rich spiritual maturity and depth of insight well equipped to train our young people to be spiritual warriors.  He, alongside Aaron Greenwood, (Athletic Director) will be speaking directly into our coaches, who in turn will speak into our players.  We are excited about his connections with alumni and the entire Montgomery and Elmore County area.  We look forward to seeing how he can help ACA continue to grow.  Please join us in welcoming Mr. Tim Perry!”

T.E.A. Christian Academy, Inc. Positive Perspectives Mentoring

T.E.A. Christian Academy Inc. Positive Perspectives Mentoring

In May, Charlene McCall-Jackson (consultant and retired educator) mentored T.E.A. Christian Academy students on the importance of positive perspectives. Students can become overwhelmed when trying to meet the demands of school requirements, along with being exposed to negative and positive viewpoints. How can they make wholesome decisions? If more emphasis is placed on positive thinking, students can develop a more structured and balanced approach to learning.
Mrs. Jackson used five words to discuss positive perspectives:
1. Accountability – Everyone is accountable for his or her actions.
2. Process – Assessment: Weekly tests (formative) and final tests (summative) are necessary to ensure students are meeting the benchmarks.
3. Strategy – Use the S.M.A.R.T. Chart to help students achieve goals for meeting assessments, lesson plans, and life goals.
4. Goals – What you aim for. Have a plan of action and use strategies.
5. Confidence – Self-assurance. Feel good about yourself and be self-motivated. Develop your “reason why”. Students must understand their role and what is necessary to keep them on track to meet the requirements for their grade level. Jackson’s final words to the students, included “Compete against yourself, and work hard towards being better every day.”
