Be A Part of This Moment In Time

Bring a rock with you:

Bring a rock with you from home or a special place, and make a commemorative rock creation while at our 50th celebration. Your rock will later be placed at Acorn School around the many outdoor learning spaces, hidden in our 100 Aker Wood for children to find, used to hold children’s artwork down on windy days, and used in so many other special ways. It will always be there for you to find when you come and visit!

Bring a printed picture with you: 

Are you or your family Acorn alum? We’re making a visual “Acorn’s Visual Life Cycle” at the 50th Celebration. Please bring a printed picture(s) from your time at Acorn School and add it to the memory board while at the 50th event. These pictures will turned into a memory book and put into a time capsule with various items from Acorn’s 50th year.  Please write the name(s) and date on the back of each picture.


Your end-of-year memory book(s):

Acorn families: Bring your book(s) and/or pictures to share the memories!
