Last week Mrs. Ciolino's math groups were working on repeated addition. One group was rolling dice to put together a repeated addition sentence, and the other group was using cards and recording sheets. Sounds like fun! Visit her Teacher Page!
A Zero Waste Ambassador training session jed by Gina Orlando and Kathy Sullivan was held with the entire third grade this afternoon. As a service project connected with their role in the St. Francis Mass on October 4th, the third graders are all training as Zero Waste Ambassadors, who monitor and provide guidance with the disposal of waste into liquid, compost, recycling, and landfill containers in the Pine Room. See more on Mrs. Kane's Teacher Page.
The Buddy program at Ascension is one of our favorite traditions! Each Grade is matched with another, oldest to younger, and they become friends through doing activities and spending time with each other. The 8th grade is paired with 1st grade (and so forth) and the 4th graders get to spend time with our preschoolers! Thanks to Mrs. Kirchen and Ms. Sefton for sharing. Take a look!

Late last school year, 7th grade Mixed Masterpieces were entered in the Fenwick Art Contest. These paintings combine two masterpieces into one. May was a busy month, so here are a few samples, done by students who are now in 8th grade. Very impressive!
We are already down to business at Ascension! Students know and love their new teachers and are discovering new things every day. And everyone loves the new floors!
