Monday, February 1 – Celebrating Our Students

  • “Dodgeball for Diapers” Event
  • Mass Schedule
  • Out of uniform day. Each student may pay $1.00 during lunches (and will receive a hand stamp) to dress in appropriate AHS spirit wear or theme dress for the day.  Theme Dress: Jersey/Sports Day
  • Dodgeball: 9:55-10:55 Large Gym (compete with 6th period classes)
  • All seniors will be allowed to watch all competitions from the large gym bleachers, and other classes will be called down as the bracket indicates for competitions. Each 6th period teacher should be sure that the 10 dodgeball players representing his or her class are ready to go when called.  Games will be played on a time-limit, and in each game, the team with the most players standing at the buzzer will advance to the next round.  Play will be single-elimination.  All members of the winning 6th period class will be allowed to go first in the lunch line on Friday, February 12th.
  • This event will also be used to promote the school-wide collection of diapers for the Scott County Catholic Schools K-12 diaper drive. Students should consider sacrificing treats/extras throughout the week in an effort to purchase diapers/baby wipes for donation. Diapers will be collected in the D-2 classroom Friday morning through the end of second period.  Total diapers will be calculated by Student Council, and the grade with the highest per/student diaper total will get Whitey’s malt cups at lunches on Friday, February 12th. No money will be collected in classrooms.  Students are encouraged to “go the extra mile” to physically bring in donated items to support these local organizations and families.

Educational professionals from CADS will visit AHS and offer presentations focused on the facts and dangers of vaping.  9th and 10th grade classes will have a presentation in the large gym, 11th graders will be in the small gym, and 12th graders will be in the auditorium.

St. Nick’s Bags

We would like the opportunity to maintain the custom of putting candy in the student’s shoes for St. Nick’s Day, but due to Covid feel we need to do it a little differently this year.

If you would like to donate any “King Size” candy or candy bar to the cause, we will make sure each student receives it in their shoe on St. Nick’s Day.

Please send any “King Size” candy or candy bar you would like to donate to the Front Office by December 1st.

If you have any questions, please contact Shelli Miller in the Front Office at shelli.miller@assumptionhigh.org or 563-326-5313, ext. 9-200.

Thank you for your help in keeping this traditon going.

Parent/Teacher Conferences – Thursday, September 24th – 3:30-7:00 – Cafe
