Assumption Chaplain, Fr. Jake Greiner, accompanied 4 AHS students on Thursday, May 3, to the Project Andrew Dinner in Iowa City. Students were able to meet and converse with Bishop Zinkula and even had the opportunity to have their picture taken at the event.
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.
If anyone is needing service hours, or would just like to help out, we have someone looking for help with raking her lawn. If anyone is interested, please contact: Mrs. Lisa Schwanz, 563-320-9457.
Volunteers are needed for the JDRF Walk on Saturday, May 5th. Check-in volunteers need to be 18 years of age, but there are plenty of other opportunities, such as manning inflatables, kids activities, walk route cheering and wearing mascot costumes. Volunteers will receive a free t-shirt.
We are still in need of Host Families for the NET team members that will be coming for the Sophomore Retreat. NET- stands for the National Evangelical Team and is comprised of college-aged youth taking a semester off in order to spread the love of Christ. The team members arrive on Sunday, April 22nd and retreat is on Monday, April 23rd (they leave after the retreat.) Host families must be able to provide sleeping arrangements for two students. Please contact Mrs. Natalie Imborek for more details or if you are willing to host. email@example.com
Northgate Hy-Vee is building a fundraising campaign for JDRF (formerly know as Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) and their “One Walk” to help find the cure for Type 1 Diabetes. This campaign will last from April 1st to May 1st. They are looking for students who are in need/want volunteer hours. They need students who would simply staff JDRF tables in their Hy-Vee store for allotted shifts where they would educate people about JDRF, why they are raising money to find a cure, sell root beer floats, JDRF shoes, and JDRF bars. It should be a fun volunteer experience and you can do it with friends! Also, if any students want to join the Hy-Vee team for the JDRF “One Walk” on May 5th at BlackHawk College you are more than welcome to! This would be an excellent experience for any student, but especially those pursuing a career in the health and wellness field. If you are interested, please contact: Katie Lashier, RD, LD at firstname.lastname@example.org
On April 27th and 28th, the Humility of Mary Housing is looking for students who can volunteer to help with packing, carry out, loading and set up and tear down at their Fresh Start Benefit Sale. They are especially looking for teens for the noon to 4 shift on Saturday afternoon . During ‘tear down’ they bag left over winter clothes and prepare the racks for hanging up summer clothes the following Monday.
If you are interested in helping, please call the office at 563-326-1330, ext. 105.
The class of 2018 hosted the 59th Annual Spaghetti Supper on January 28, 2018. Guests were treated to the homemade sauce (recipe courtesy of Father Colonese-Director of the first AHS Spaghetti Supper). This longstanding tradition was yet again a cherished opportunity for the Assumption Family to celebrate the many blessings of our community. Thank you to all of the many benefactors of Assumption High School, and thank you to the class of 2018 for your leadership. Happy Catholic Schools Week!
Are you looking for service hours? In honor of “Cathedral Sunday” (and in an effort to support our Diocesan Cathedral), we are looking for students/families to sell raffle tickets after each of this weekend’s Masses (February 3/4) at our supporting parishes. The job is simple- stand at the back (tickets in hand) and be available for sales as parishioners exit Mass. The sign-up timeframes list the Mass times at each parish, so volunteers should expect to stay 15-20 minutes after Mass to complete the service opportunity. We are so blessed to have our beautiful cathedral so near. Fortunately, we are able to host our annual Baccalaureate Mass there, as well as a variety of choir and retreat events throughout the year. Supporting this effort is but a small way we can assist in keeping this beautiful place of worship (that we all share) at its best.
A single student name can be entered (the student’s siblings and/or parents are welcome to assist with covering the multiple exits of the church), or a few students can sign up together. Each Mass a student covers will count for 1/2 hour of service for the AHS service log. Students are allowed to cover multiple Masses at their parish, if desired. Students covering any Mass should pick up a packet of tickets by the end of the day on Friday, February 2nd, in the front office.
Please consider helping with this effort. Click here to sign up via the SignUp Genius. We are blessed to be a part of this vibrant Catholic community, and many hands make lighter work. Happy Catholic Schools Week 2018!
One in the Spirit,
Join us Sunday, January 28, 2018, in the Assumption High School Cafeteria 4 – 7 p.m. for the annual Senior Spaghetti Supper! Your attendance and support are greatly appreciated. This event is our special gift to the Assumption Community.
The meal includes salad, spaghetti, bread, drink, and dessert. Meals are complimentary, and Rev. Louis Colonnese’s sauce recipe (used at the first AHS Spaghetti Supper in 1960) is the secret! Take-out orders will be packaged upon request. Please help the Assumption Class of 2018 in this service effort. The class is attempting to raise funds to give a gift back to the school upon graduation. Donations will be accepted at the door.
Thank you to all our Winter Blood Drive Donors from Assumption High School! Our group provided 37 donations for local hospitals. With those donations, we were able to provide up to 148 products for patients in need.
