Blood Drive Thank You

The Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center would like to thank the donors of Assumption High School for our recent Blood Drive.  Our group provided 43 donations for local hospitals served by MVRBC. Because each whole blood donation can be processed into multiple blood components, our blood drive provided up to 172 products for patients in need.

The MVRBC is very appreciative to all involved with the Blood Drive.

Senior Grandparent Slideshow

On Friday, April 27, we were blessed to share Mass as a school community.  Students welcomed Grandparents and guests to this special annual opportunity in the Assumption auditorium.  Families of seniors had the option to submit photos of their students with his/her grandparents.  Please enjoy the attached slideshow that was shared before and after the Mass.

Assumption Art Club News

A big thank you goes out to Assumption Art Club for service projects completed. Students created kite props for St.Paul’s musical Mary Poppins. Students also painted an Assumption-themed bags game donated from Mr. Dave Simpson to April Knight. Art Club members who worked on the projects included: Kenneth Nguyen, Marissa Shell, Alexisciel Dinh, Hannah Lerch and Amanda Herrington.

April Knight was also the benefactor of a couple more artistic endeavors. Gracie Miller beautifully painted a round serving platter in a floral bouquet theme. Advanced Graphic Art students Marissa Shell, Pamela Moya and Trenton McDonough teamed up to create a 3-D printed chess set which was auctioned off at April Knight as well.

Thank you to all these creative students who donated their time and talents to worthy causes.
