The Irving Park ACES Program provides quality academic, enrichment and recreational activities for students currently enrolled at Irving Park Elementary School. The program is licensed with a 4 Star Rating from the North Carolina Division of Child Development, a Superior Rating from the Guilford County Health Department and is one of THE BEST programs in Guilford County!
ACES is offered from dismissal until 6:00 p.m. every day that school is in session for students, as well as from 7:30-6:00 p.m. on designated teacher workdays. ACES also operates from dismissal until 6:00 p.m. on Hunter's early release days.
A $15 non-refundable enrollment fee is due when the initial ACES enrollment application for the school year is submitted for each student. The enrollment fee is not required for students who have a DSS or other agency childcare voucher. During the 2017-18 School Year, the weekly fee is $46.00 a week and is due on Monday at the beginning of the week attending. Effective at the beginning of the 2018-19 school year, the ACES weekly fee will be $50.00, which will be due on Friday by 6:00 p.m. If your weekly fee is paid late (on Monday), a $5.00 late fee will be added to your weekly fee. The ACES Program will continue to accept subsidy payments from agencies such as the Department of Social Services (DSS), Guilford Child Development (GCD) and adoption services.
ACES activities include: Our ACES Curriculum - Growing Community Leaders: An ACES Curriculum That Serves, KidzLit® Literacy Program, Nature and Science Activities, Learning for Life and other Character Development activities, Academic Time, Book-It Reading Incentive Program, CATCH® Kids, Skillastics®, VersaTiles®, Computer Lab, Centers, Field Trips and Special Events. A nutritional snack is also served daily. (Breakfast snack and lunch are served on ACES All Days)
New this year is ACES Across the Nation! Our ACES program will “travel” to ten different states this year to explore some of the well known (and not-so-well-known) attributes of some of our great states. Here is the travel itinerary: we will focus on ten states per school year (one state per month) with different STEAM activities for each month/state. We hope that all ACES students will enjoy these activities and give input on the states that they have visited!

ACES Open Enrollment for the 2018-19 School Year will begin on Monday, April 9, 2018. To enroll your child for next year, you will need to fill out a new enrollment form, pay the $15.00 Enrollment Fee and pay the $50.00 deposit (which is good for the final week of ACES). If you hold a DSS or GCD Voucher, you do not have to pay the enrollment fee or a deposit.
