We Attend Thanksgiving Prayer

The entire school gathered to give thanks for all God has given us, and to be reminded eo be generous to those in need. Our non-perishable gifts were brought to the altar, and later boxed by the student council. After prayer, Mrs. Polega announced the Honor Roll for the first trimester. Ascension wishes  a Happy Thanksgiving to all.

The StoryBus

The students in PK 3 through 1st grade climbed aboard the StoryBus.  Inside the bus, the children were able to interact with many hands-on exhibits based on the story The Little Red Hen.  The children picked fruits and vegetables, ground wheat into flour, played with farm animal puppets, baked bread and cooked in the kitchen, and fished in the pond.
The StoryBus is a project of the Dolores Kohl Education Foundation.

PK 3 Conservatory Visit

All of our classes have visited the Oak Park Conservatory! We saw beautiful plant life. Some of our favorite plants were the Cacao tree, several Citrus trees, the Prickly Pear cactus, the "Old Man" cactus, and the Papaya tree...just to name a few. We enjoyed using our Binoculars to see the HUGE Koi fish and turtles in the pond. It was also fun to try and talk to the parrots; Sarah, George and Skipper also known as "I Bite".
