AHS Parent Prayer Group

Please join us for a special prayer opportunity at Assumption High School.   Each Thursday at 9:00 AM, our entire Assumption family (parents, grandparents, alumni, etc.) is invited to gather in the AHS Chapel for prayer.  We pray for the students (each by name, one class per week), pray for the students’ intentions (prayer boxes are available in several of the teachers’ rooms), intentions for our entire AHS community, and then conclude praying the Rosary together.  Come as you are and come when you are able and your schedule allows.  Although many of you may work during the day and may not be able to join us, please know, we are happy to lift any intentions you may have and we ask that you remember our prayer gathering and join us in spirit.  

If and when you can join, just simply use the main entrance, register in the school office and find your way to the Chapel…if you aren’t yet familiar with AHS, the office staff or other parents will guide the way!  And PLEASE do not let praying the Rosary deter you – we are all at different levels with this powerful prayer and can learn and grow together.

Senior Parents,

Dear Class of 2020 Students & Parents,

Yes, we know it’s still fall… but it is actually time to start planning for graduation!

To keep things simple and allow you more time to place your orders, we are offering ONLINE ORDERING for your Graduation products, including your Cap & Gown, custom graduation announcements, accessories, senior apparel, and class rings.  At your convenience, please use the link below or visitwww.ringsandgowns.com, to place your order.

Since your school is covering the cost of the Cap & Gown unit for you, you will still want to order one online (so we can make sure we have the correct size), and then just use thePromo Code 2020GRAD during checkout, which will make the cost of the Cap & Gown Unit completely FREE to you.  You will only pay for the additional items that you want to purchase to help celebrate this milestone in your life.

Your order needs to be placed NO LATER than December 1st, 2019. Depending on the items you order, most products will be delivered to you at the school (and some custom products will be shipped directly to your home).  Orders placed by December 1st will have any pre-delivered items delivered to the school before Christmas.  If you have any questions, please contact Moments with Class at the phone number or email address below.  Thank you very much for your business and congratulations on your upcoming graduation!

Moments with Class has a huge variety of Senior Swag – apparel options and accessories!  Visit www.ringsandgowns.com to place your order!

The Festival of Trees runs from November 23 through December 1. This fund-raiser supports the arts.

 

Online Safety Guidelines for Parents

On Thursday, October 17, Officer Hank Jacobsen of the Davenport Police Department came to Assumption to speak to parents of the Scott County Catholic Schools about internet safety.  Here are a few of the biggest takeaways:

  • Consistently remind your student that anything they put online is PUBLIC and PERMANENT. Even when they erase content, many times a ghost image is saved.  Once words or an image is put online, they have no control over who sees it or how far it goes.
  • Don’t block all access to technology. Help your child learn to use technology safely and positively.
  • Be the parent. Set boundaries for technology and use monitoring/filtering software on all devices.
  • Know that a very high percentage of students have at least two accounts for many social media sites – one parents see when they ask to check devices, and one students keep in secret.
  • Keep lines of communication open and encourage your child to come to you when they see inappropriate material. Respond positively when they do come to you.
  • Remember the acronym YAPPY to teach your children what information they should and should not reveal online.
  • Your name- never tell a stranger your name. They could pretend to know you get access to your address and other personal information.
  • Address- Never tell anyone online where you live.
  • Password- Never tell anyone your password. Not even your best friend.
  • Phone number- Never give your phone number to people that you don’t know.
  • Your plans- Never tell a stranger your plans.
  • From Ms. Bush: Remember, a recent study has shown that over an hour and a half of screen time a day correlates directly with depression rates.  While there are many contributing causes to depression, excessive screen time has been shown to be a contributing factor. Balance screen time with “green time.”  Go outside, exercise, read offline, spend time with family and friends.

Warmest regards,

Kelly Bush, Director of Student Wellness
