The afternoon of Halloween is a lot of fun – another chance to hang out with our Buddies! Younger classes played Sight Word Bingo, and most classes played the traditional game, often with new twists. Home and School deserves a big thanks for organizing the playing and the prizes, and as you see, we were in Halloween colors of black and orange. See our Buddy Bingo Gallery for a look at some of the classrooms. We're back in uniform tomorrow for the All Saints Day Mass at 10:00.

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!

Room 108 third graders and their Buddies in Room 210 got together to make bouquets and cards for Mrs. Jackie Smith. Known to all students as Ms. Jackie, she is our wonderful Lunch Lady. Ms. Jackie greets everyone with a smile  and makes sure hot lunches are ready on time. No one goes hungry in her lunchroom! Ms. Jackie was thrilled!
