Students in Room 108 are forging cross-cultural connections (and improving their writing skills) with letters to and from pen pals in Taipei, Taiwan. Ms. Kane's daughter is teaching English in Taiwan to students of about the same age. After matching up the classes, we wrote letters to our pen pals describing aspects of our lives here at Ascension and outside of school. We were thrilled to received informative letters back. We now know how to write our names in Chinese characters and can't wait to try stinky tofu!

Mr. Mueller leads an 8th grade class as they learn about coding. The flexible seating and iPads in the Ursuline center make it convenient to have a technology lesson. Because of its size, Mrs. Flowers can meet a student one-on-one for additional help at the same time.

Our Amazing Blue Tie Auction took place on Saturday, November 17 in the school gym. Wonderfully displayed items received plenty of attention from guests who were happy to bid! A delicious dinner was served, courtesy of Chef Vogel, and then the live auction began. A highlight of the evening was the Auction Video, encouraging our guests to fund Ascension's Mission with STEM curricula during the next year. Alumni John Pollard described his incredible parents, this year's honorees Jill and Chip Pollard. Enjoy our pictures and the 2018 Paddle Raise Auction video!

In honor of Veteran's Day this week, Ascension Student Council members are selling lollipops on Thursday and Friday. The suggested donation is $1, but they ask students and staff to be generous, as the proceeds will go to an organization helping veterans. Well done, Student Council!
