Yesterday the Ascension Class of 2014 spent the afternoon with us! It was a joyous get together, greeting each other and the new principal, Mrs. Polega. The students spent time with the soon-to-graduate Class of 2018 and offered some friendly advice in the Q&A session. They paraded through the school as current students clapped and cheered! We are so very proud of all of your accomplishments, and wish you all the best as you embark upon your next adventure! Enjoy comparing yourselves to your 2014 graduation picture!

The Class of 2014 walks the halls to cheers!

Last week we had the pleasure of hearing Mrs. Coffman's orchestras play in concert. Tonight individual students will each play a piece her or she has been working on during lessons and at home. You will be amazed at the prowess of these young violinists, violists and cellists! Please come to the Pie Room at 4:30 (youngest students) 5:30 (middle-grade students) or 6:30 (older students) or come and stay for all three! All are welcome!

Grandparents arrived at Ascension at 8:30 this morning for Open House.Visits to classrooms made children and grandparents very happy! In the Pine Room, a photographer was available for family pictures, and then a marvelous reception with refreshments was held in the gym. The entire student body and grandparents (and parents!) attended mass at 10:30, enhanced by the angelic voices of our Choristers. Students "spelled out" the reasons that grandparents are so special. Then most children went out to lunch with their favorite relatives!

The Buddy program at Ascension is a true success story. Our older students get to know the younger ones, and introduce them to the kind, respectful character of our community. Today, 8th graders help 1st graders, 7th graders cheer on 2nd graders, and so on, until every child has a Buddy. What fun to bowl together, and then have pizza lunch, too! More pictures added on Friday!
