Congratulations to our two Annunciation teams that competed yesterday at the 2018 New Mexico Future City competition. Our 8th grade team, Elderado, won the NCEE Award and Best Finacial Design. Our 7th grade team, Vida Sana won Best Presentation, Best Virtual Design, Best Model and 1st place overall.
The 4th Graders worked hard to earn money at home by doing extra chores and projects. They earned $1487.25, which they then spent on supplies at Target. The supplies (musical instruments, art materials, strollers, shopping carts, play food, dolls, dress-up clothes, a couch, books, and much more) are for the new 4-5 year old classroom at the new Catholic Charities facility in the South Valley.
6th grade students from Annunciation Catholic School (ACS) traveled to Washington D.C. in February, during Engineers Week, to represent the New Mexico Region in the Future City Finals Competition. The Finals included 37 US regional winners, 2 Canadian teams, 3 Chinese teams and a team from Egypt. Last year Annunciation’s 8th Grade Future City Team represented New Mexico at the Future City Finals as well.
Thank you to our 1st grade students who bagged 117 bags of beans and 133 bags of rice to help us serve the hungry in our community. Thank you to our 1st grade teachers (Mrs. Olivas & Mrs. Coyle), 1st grade families and Catholic Charities for your support!
Thank you for ALL your support for the 7th Grade Project Give Bake Sale. They made $737.00, that will be used to adopt students currently enrolled at the Catholic Charities Childrens Learning Center. ACS 7th graders will purchase and deliver warm clothes to these students before Christmas. Also, CONGRATULATIONS to Ashton Bischoff & Luke Sanchez. They won the t-shirt decorating contest for the Project Give Shirt.
If you're interested in CPK gift cards for the holidays, or plan to dine there with your family in the future, stop by Uptown this week, November 1-6, and 20% of the gift card amount will be donated to ACS.
Congratulations to Annunciation tennis players! Our Yellow #1 team won first place in the Yellow ball Mix & Match division by beating teams from Albuquerque, Las Cruces, and Santa Fe. They also had an undefeated season! Our Yellow #2 team won the consolation bracket in the Yellow ball Mix & Match division. They played amazingly well in a tough division and beat a Las Cruces team to win the bracket final (with two tiebreakers). Our Green team earned third place in an even larger Green ball Mix & Match division. They won both matches on Saturday and just barely lost in the semifinals on Sunday. Most impressively, all of our players exhibited great sportsmanship and represented our school and faith well.
Established in 1998 with an anonymous gift to The Catholic Foundation, the Catholic Award for Teachers recognizes the accomplishments of outstanding teachers in our Catholic schools. Today Mrs. Cynthia Shropshire was honored in appreciation for her teaching excellence.
This year the proceeds will benefit LabLearner, school wide science program. If you cannot attend please consider a donation. Call or stop by the school office for more information. LabLearner is a 100% research-based, comprehensive, hands-on science system aimed at clarifying science in a way that is most understood and retained by students in the Preschool to 8th grade range.

We are the 6th graders at Annunciation Catholic School. Our class is making a newspaper for Go Orange. We are wondering if your business would please give us a donation. If you would like to purchase an ad in our newspaper, please fill out a form available in the school office or online. All of this is going to ending hunger in New Mexico. We have been raising money and want to get more. Thank you, ACS 6th Grade
