The Spring Orchestra Concert on April 15 was a delightful evening of music from the Medieval era to the present! Congratulations to Mrs. Becky Coffman and her student and to Mr. Mark Anderson and his cello students, and to Evan and Chloe, 8th graders who are graduating from Chamber Orchestra, but continuing to play in high school.
Ascension's first track meet of the year was Friday April 12th at Triton College. Everyone did an amazing job considering how cold and windy it was! Thanks to Tara Waysok for these great pictures of the running, jumping and relay races!
Monday, April 15 will be a very special evening at Ascension School! The Spring Orchestra concert will begin at 6:30 PM in the Pine Room. Featuring students of Mrs. Becky Coffman and Mr. Mark Anderson, the concert will feature Beginners, Intermediates and the Chamber Orchestra. It's sure to be a lovely, enjoyable evening of music, and all are welcome!
Yesterday, the Green Club worked outdoors to plant 54 pansy plants they had painted at the previous meeting. The pots and plants were donated by Empowering Gardens, a garden center in Forest Park that is owned by parishioner Dick Biggins. Next Tuesday, third grade students will distribute the flowers to parishioners who attend the daily morning mass with them as Easter gifts.
