Celebration of the Assumption Family – New AHS Admissions Video!

Assumption Family,

As we close this 2021 Homecoming Week, we are so excited to share our recent effort to highlight the Assumption experience in video form!  Thank you to our students, faculty and staff, parents, parishes, alumni, and friends who have worked so hard to make the educational opportunity at Assumption so high-quality.  Our Assumption Family is truly blessed, and we are grateful for any efforts you can make to share this video with new and potential families.  We want any student and family who desires the Assumption Catholic education to know that this opportunity is possible and accessible.  All are welcome at Assumption High School!

One in the Spirit,

Mrs. Bridget (Duffy ’97) Murphy

Principal, Assumption High School

Assumption High School: A Tradition of Excellence

 

Freshman and New Student Orientation Reminder

Orientation will be held Tuesday, August 17th, and all incoming freshmen and new/transfer students are required to be present from 2-5pm. Students are asked to be in dress code for orientation. The student-only portion of the day will be devoted to meeting teachers, learning student schedules, accessing lockers, and familiarizing students with lunch procedures. Parents/Guardians are encouraged to arrive at 5:00pm for an opportunity to get more parent-directed orientation information in the AHS Auditorium. This evening portion is intended for students and their parents to have the opportunity to not only feel comfortable with a variety of school personnel but to also connect with future classmates and their families. A picnic dinner will be provided by AHS in the school cafeteria following the parent presentation. Contact Mrs. Stephanie Schroeder, Director of Admissions, at stephanie.schroeder@assumptionhigh.org if you have any questions.

Fresh Start Picnic – Thursday, July 1, 2021

I hope everyone has started to enjoy summer—it’s a much-needed break from such an unusual school year!  Plus, I’m sure your children are excited to end their grade school days!

Earlier this spring, we sent out a postcard with a couple of upcoming events for registered incoming freshmen.  As a reminder, the Fresh Start Picnic is rescheduled for Thursday, July 1st.  We will serve Hungry Hobo sandwiches, drinks, and treats.  There will also be a few games and activities—rain or shine.  (If there is inclement weather, we will hold the picnic inside in the cafeteria.)

Students can begin checking in at 1:00 near the tennis courts at the back of the main parking lot.  If it’s raining, please drop your students off around back at the main student entrance between the gym and the auditorium.  The picnic will end at 3:00, however, we invite all the incoming freshmen to stay for the varsity baseball double-header starting at 3:00 (weather permitting).

In order to make an accurate order for food and drinks, we would kindly appreciate your student’s RSVP by Monday, June 28th at the latest.  (I will send out a reminder email as that day draws closer.)  Additionally, we ask that you verify your child’s t-shirt size in case it has changed since filling out the Assumption application for admission.

Enjoy the rest of your June, and we hope to see your student at the Fresh Start Picnic!  (Pray for good weather!)
