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.

Metro-Arts Apprentice Fellowships Awarded to AHS Students

Two Assumption students received Metro-Arts Apprentice fellowships for the 2018 summer session.

Congratulations to Marissa Shell and Trenton McDonough. Marissa will be part of a group painting public murals in the QC area. Trenton will be pursuing a group photography project.

Metro Arts apprenticeships must be applied for through Quad City Arts. A lengthy application process includes letters of recommendation, portfolio review as well as one-on-one interviews.

Congratulations to both Marissa and Trenton!

National Speaker:  Silent Strength – April 26th and 27th – All are welcome!

National speaker Doug Reavis will share his Silent Strength presentation with Assumption students on Thursday, April 26th, from 12:30-2:00 in the Assumption Auditorium.  A parent presentation will be held that same evening from 6:30-8, also in the AHS auditorium. Please encourage any members of the Assumption Family and beyond to benefit from this powerful, and personal story of faith.  The Silent Strength message centers on kindness and, in faith-based settings, seeing God in every other person. It has been said that Mr. Reavis gives the best anti-bullying message out there without ever using the word “bullying.”  Assumption is excited to host all 6th-8th grade students from the Catholic elementary schools for a middle school presentation on Friday, April 27th, from 12:45-2:15.  Please mark your calendars to attend this great parent opportunity, and invite a friend (or several) to join you!  We can all benefit from the inspiration this presentation has to share.
