Day of Service

While many took a day off, 50 ANC students and teachers chose to spend their Monday participating in Philadelphia's MLK Day of Service. They painted in Habitat for Humanity's ReStore, helped clean up at the Simpson Recreation Center in northeast Philly, worked at A Woman's Place thriftshop in Doylestown, and worked to set up for the Kuhl Skate in Bryn Athyn.

Our contact at Habitat said she was thrilled the kids were coming back this year because ANC student "are fun AND get a ton of work done." Organizer and Delta Mu adviser Cory Boyce adds, "It was a great day."

Sandy's Potential Impact on Calendar

Because of the school days lost to the storm in November, it may be necessary to add days to the calendar to make up for additional days which may be lost to weather or emergency over the winter. After considering different points of view and exploring multiple options, we determined that it would be least disruptive to families to subtract single-day holidays during the course of the year, as opposed to trying to add a week to the end of the school year.

Below is a link to the letter sent out to parents, giving the details involved in the decision, along with a link to the current calendar, so you can see where these holidays fall.

ANC Grad Gives Back to the Arts

Alumna Justine Brannon is back in town and working as an acting coach for our upcoming production of Irving Berlin’s White Christmas to be performed in December. Justine is no stranger to the performing arts at ANC. During her years as a student (2003-2007) she participated in just about every dramatic activity the school had to offer: she was a member of Theatre Club, performed in several main stage productions (Crazy for You, The Wizard of Oz, Honk!), reviewed shows as a critic in the Cappies program, and eventually produced her own one-act play in Senior Project. She now holds a BA in Theatre and English from Muhlenberg College, where she concentrated in Acting and Performance Studies. From 2011-12 she served as the Production Manager at Pennsylvania Youth Theatre in Bethlehem and is now a Greenfield Teaching Artist Fellow at the Philadelphia Theatre Company. She loves inspiring young people to express themselves through the performing arts and is so excited to return to ANC as an acting coach for White Christmas—her favorite holiday show!
