 Athletics

YMCA Basketball League

Heart-breaking action and last-minute thrillers! ACA's 5th and 6th grade basketball teams are making waves. For the first time in the school's history, our teams are competing in the YMCA Basketball League.

Parents, family and friends have shown their support all season and cheered our team on. Mehdi dribbled his way through bruising defenses and shooting three pointers from the deep end. Husnain is known for snatching rebounds and blocking shoots. Muiman and Sayer are our lock-down defenders. These boys have a bright future and put their blood, sweat and tears into making this team successful.

Head Lice Prevention

Head lice infestation, or pediculosis, is spread most commonly by close person-to-person contact. Dogs, cats, and other pets do not play a role in the transmission of human lice.  They are tiny wingless insects that live on human scalp, multiplying rapidly and can only be eliminated with proper treatment. 

The following are a few steps that can be taken to help prevent and control the spread of head lice:
  • Avoid head-to-head (hair-to-hair) contact during play and other activities at home, school, and elsewhere (sports activities, playground, slumber parties, camp).
  • Do not share clothing such as hats, scarves, coats, sports uniforms, hair ribbons, or barrettes.
  • Do not share combs, brushes, or towels. Disinfest combs and brushes used by an infested person by soaking them in hot water (at least 130°F) for 5–10 minutes.
