Here we go, another new school year. I hope everyone made the most of their summer break. I am excited to be back at ACE and the way we do things here at ACE are setting us apart from other classrooms. I look forward to working with you, and I appreciate your support and patience as we continue to create great post-secondary options for your son/daughter. I encourage you to email me with any questions or concerns and use this website as a place of reference.
