Today is finally here! School will be over and summer vacation will begin! Students and teachers worked in their rooms before the Prayer Service at 10:00. Fr. Hurlbert, Mrs. Polega and the third grade helped us to think of our mission to do God's will and to help others. We celebrated teaching anniversaries, teachers who are moving on and Ms. Rafa, who is retiring! We are enjoined to "Go and Make a Difference!"

Ascension teachers are the best! To show their appreciation, the Home & School Association and Mrs. Polega have made each day of the week special.  Early in the week everyone enjoyed a coffee bar and yummy breakfast treats. Today teachers will receive a special treat as a thank you. More surprises are in store! Our teachers care for your children with wisdom and compassion and humor and love, kindness and respect. We thank them for choosing Ascension – we love our teachers (and aides)!

Our 4th graders wrote reports about almost every state in the United States. Then, using a donated pizza box, each student designed an interior with pictures and facts about his or her state. When closed, the outside of the box had clues to the state's identity. Here are 3 interiors, so you don't have to guess!
