How awesome to have visitors from our favorite all-girl high school, Trinity! They posted pictures and wrote: "So wonderful to be at Ascension Elementary School today to share the book “She Persisted” in celebration of Womens History Month. We shared the message of persistence, determination, and that no voice is too small and no dream is to big." Thanks for coming!
Third grader's constructed "Bunny Baskets" for the guests at Housing Forward (formerly PADS). Each month the 3 graders make placemats for the guests as part of an ongoing service project. Serving others with a joyful, creative spirit builds connections to those in need.

Take a moment to remember all those who have served in the Armed Forces, whether in times of conflict or times of peace, and those who serve our country today. The Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard are comprised solely of men and women who volunteered to serve and protect us. Fly our flag proudly, and find an opportunity to thank a veteran or active duty service member.
Ascension School did an amazing job donating non-perishable food items to the Archdiocese of Chicago and Catholic Charities Soup-er Stadium Challenge! We exceeded the donation goal and were invited to the Catholic Charities Warehouse to help deliver, sort and pack the last delivery of non-perishable food items. The Ascension School students saw first-hand the warehouse full of non-perishable donations that will provide more than 100,000 meals to Chicagoans in need.
