Ascension boosters  Grade 2 and up formed a festive contingent of Oak Park's 4th of July parade this year! Student participants received a bright red Ascension Chargers tee and the chance to toss treats to the crowd along the way. The weather was hot and sunny, but they braved the elements and even got a cool shower along the way. Thanks to the Development Office for organizing our group and to all the students, alumni, and parents who marched!

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!

Ascension teachers won the first two games, but the 8th graders gave their all and won the third game! We hope you enjoyed watching the game, in person or on Facebook Live. Here are a few more pictures from the game and of the mis-matched outfits. Thanks, Mr. Sengstock!
