Second graders, recent First Communicants, were guests with family at a First Communion breakfast, after which the children lined up to form a procession. The May Crowning mass, for grades 2 through 8, was led by Student Council members, one of whom crowned a statue of Mary. After mass Fr. Hurlbert gathered the children in the labyrinth for picture-taking near the Marian statue.

May has always been a very busy month at Ascension, especially for our 8th graders. The Class of 2019 had two field trips last week, and 7th graders have also been on the move! It's an exciting time for all students, having made strides the whole year, culminiating in wonderful projects and activities. And ice cream!

This afternoon, medals were awarded for exemplary success in this year's Kathy Adams Run-a-Thon. Classes assembled in the courtyard with their Buddies to applause for running laps, and then students lined up for an ice cream treat for earning well over the amount projected! Congratulations to all medalists, all runners and especially the phenomenal Run-a-Thon Committee!
