Ascension has some new student  gardens!  These gardens and their upkeep support more STEM learning in our students. Thanks to HOME team members, teachers, staff, our amazing students and also to some donors.  We are grateful. Currently we have 4th and 5th graders involved with their dynamic teachers and STEM learning. Well done, everyone!

One of the STEM projects in 4th and 5th grade this year was designing a raised garden bed. The bed will be built on the Green Space, but it needs a name! Here are a few of the signs that the 4th and 5th graders made with names for the raised garden bed. I wonder if one of these will be chosen?

Third graders recently completed a favorite project: researching a famous person, writing a report, and presenting the biography in costume! Photos are on Mrs. Fogarty's Page and Mrs. Kane's Page. Enjoy!

If you have been following Ascension's coin collection, you remember that the top-collecting class would get to throw a pie into Mrs. Polega's face!   PK 4 collected the most money for the Teach the Children Fund Raiser.  However, PK-4 students opted to eat pie with Mrs. Polega instead of throwing one at her. That's Love, Kindness and Respect!

We are getting so close to the end. . .of May! So much to do! From May Crowning to field trips to end-of-the-year programs, Ascension is a busy place! Walking the halls this week, you would think the classrooms were empty, but the students were just that engaged!
