ALL ARE WELCOME! Please join us this Sunday, January 27, 2019, 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 2019 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.
There is an upcoming service opportunity open to all students this Sunday, January 27th at 2 pm in the AHS Cafeteria. We need help setting-up for the Spaghetti Supper (tables, chairs, signs, etc.)
Please let me know if you are interested and planning to come help (firstname.lastname@example.org). This is worth 2 hours of community service. Reminder- students need ten hours before May 1st!!!
Mrs. Natalie Imborek
Campus Minister, Assumption High School
Are you looking for service hours? In anticipation of Catholic Schools Week next week, we are looking for students/families to represent Assumption at each of this weekend’s Masses (January 26/27) at our supporting parishes. The job is simple- hand out “thank-you” flyers 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. The purpose of the flyer is to express appreciation to the community for its ongoing support of Catholic education at Assumption High School and to invite them to this Sunday’s AHS Senior Spaghetti Supper. The meal is complimentary, and is held from 4-7 pm in the Assumption cafeteria. This year marks the 60th year of this annual tradition of senior service to our school community!
Please click on the signup below to commit to passing out flyers at a given Mass. 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 hour of service for the AHS service log. Students are allowed to cover multiple Masses at their parish, if desired. Flyers will be distributed to students covering the first Mass at each parish on Friday, January 25th, in the front office. (Students covering subsequent Masses should look for the flyers in a cardboard flat in a back center pew of the church.)
Please consider helping with this appreciation effort. We are so grateful to our wider Assumption Community, and without this support, the education at Assumption High School would not be possible. Happy Catholic Schools Week 2019!

Looking for Volunteers at the Tim Tebow Night to Shine. This is a prom event for people with special needs, ages 14 and up. There will be ONE prom held in the Quad Cities on Friday, February 8, 2019.
An event of this size needs a lot of people willing to help. They are in need of buddies for the guests with special needs and any kind of help the volunteers are willing to give. Being a buddy would consist of making sure the guest has the best night of their life. A buddy would be 1:1 with a guest, dance with them, make them feel special. We have opportunities to help with all aspects of the event, for instance, helping with food serving, decorations, help on the dance floor, karaoke etc. This is a great opportunity for high school and college students to receive volunteer/service hours while having fun. This is also a great event for a team to volunteer together. This is a great video to share with anyone who is interested:
