February 14-21 was an extremely busy week at Ascension! Starting off with Valentine's Day, we had a wonderful Mission Day prayer service, followed by a very exciting Mission Day itself. Green Club met and as usual our classrooms were active with curriculum subjects, specials and STEM projects!

Along with our regular educational activities, students are celebrating African American History Month. Through Dr. Martin Luther King we are  learning ways of peace and love.

The Polar Vortex kept us home for two days, but before and since we have been active and engaged learners with so much to be proud of! Mrs. Kane's class investigated the reasons for the super-cold weather and we were back in school for three spirited volleyball games while wearing crazy clothes and hair! PK-4 also celebrated 101 Days of School!
