What’s Happening at AHS

AHS Booster Club – Position Open

Knight Nation,

The Assumption Knights Booster Club is still looking to fill the following position:

Apparel – Mary Oxendine and her husband John have been with the club for eight years and are credited with outfitting Knight Nation and our student athletes with the best apparel the industry has to offer. Mary has also created awesome statements on our state qualifiers and state championship T-shirts.  This is a big job, but Mary has many trade allies/references to pass on to the new person and will also help that person get started.

Go Knights.

Sincerely, Chris Martens AHS Booster Club, Chrishmartens@gmail.com 563.529.9863

Student Service Hour Opportunities

Please see below for Student Service Opportunities:

Campus Ministry is looking for donations of yarn and/or crochet needles. Ask Mrs. Imborek for details.

Mrs. Smith is looking for students to tutor Spanish.  Contact her at:  jodi.smith@assumptionhigh.org

Students will have the opportunity to attend Adoration every Tuesday in the Chapel. It is a great way to spend some time with Jesus and pray for others during your study hall. Mrs. Imborek will also be providing crochet materials (set up in the chapel everyday) for students to learn and be able to make gloves, hats and scarves for the homeless.

Hand in Hand’s annual Chili Cook Off is Saturday, January 26, 2019 from 2:30-6:30pm. Volunteer shifts are from 2:30-4:30pm or 4:30-6:30pm. All volunteers receive free admission to the event and a Hand in Hand Chili Cook Off shirt!
