Friday, May 5 was a wonderful day for Ascension, our annual Grandparents' Day! Our favorite guests arrived in the morning to visit classrooms, peruse Ms. Makowski's Art Show in the Pine Room, attend a warm reception in the gym and even have pictures taken. The school community attended mass at 19:30 and then many students went out to lunch with their grandparents or specials guests. Our thanks to the Development office and the School office for coordinating this marvelous event!
Thanks to Ascension's fabulous Home and School, students were treated to a presentation of Donizett's comic opera, The Elixir of Love on May 5th. "Opera for the Young" came with portable sets and props, and Mrs. Leanna trained the 5th graders to sing the chorus parts, while the 4 professionals sang the arias, duets, trios and a quartet! Students were thrilled and amused , since the opera was now set in the Old West. Thank you, Home and School!

Students preparing for First Eucharist spent Saturday morning, April 29 together. With their catechists and parent volunteers, they learned how bread is made and each child shaped a small loaf for his or her family. First communion masses are the first two weekends of May. God bless each one of you!
Thank you to the Ascension Student Council for hosting a wonderful Easter Fun Fair!
The Junior High volunteers were so kind, patient, and silly with the Preschoolers and Kindergartners.
Early Childhood students in attendance had so much fun playing games, winning prizes, eating treats and getting their face painted.
Thank you "Big Kids" for a great time!
