  • ACT CLUB: Why not build your ACT knowledge, confidence, and understanding a little bit each week instead of cramming right before the test? ACT club takes only twenty minutes, and we finish so early, you won’t even have to miss practice! Testing is timed, and students are assisted in improving their testing speed. When time is up, either Mrs. Smyth, Mrs. Wallace, or Mr. Buchanan is available to answer questions and help students analyze their answers. ACT club meets TUESDAYS from 2:50 to 3:10. It is important to show up to ACT Club as frequently as possible before you take the ACT test.

Knights For Life AHS Family T-Shirt Order

In honor of this Respect Life Month of October, we are fortunate that a generous benefactor has offered to sponsor a reprinting of the original “Knights for Life” t-shirts that were printed several years ago.  All current AHS Students and Faculty/Staff are invited to order a shirt at no charge.  That said, we anticipate that others in our Assumption Family (alumni, parents, family, friends) may also want to participate in this stand for life through purchasing a t-shirt. If you would like to purchase a shirt, you can do so by completing this survey link below.  The cost is $10 for short-sleeved and $14 for long-sleeved. Orders must be placed no later than 3PM on Friday, October 22nd.  In order to complete your order, payment must also be completed at the following link: https://assumptionhigh.diamondmindinc.com/. Please just list “Knights for Life t-shirt Payment” in the memo of your online payment.  Thanks for your participation, and thanks so much to our alums who give back to our students and school community!

Please click here to place your t-shirt order!

Blessings,

Mrs. Bridget Murphy
