The University of Iowa

Due to the pandemic, the University of Iowa will not be visiting Assumption in-person this fall. However, they do have virtual options available to students. These options include overview sessions on admissions, honors, diversity, and academics (click on links for details). Students will also have the opportunity to explore campus virtually and sign up for a one-on-one meeting with an admission counselor.

I’ve also included a 5 minute overview video, for students and parents who would like a brief overview of Iowa.

Assumption’s University of Iowa’s admission counselor is Marcus Phillips. If you are interested in connecting with Marcus please contact him at marcus-phillips@uiowa.edu.

Volleyball Attendance Guidelines for Spectators

Dear Assumption Community,

As we head into our fall competition seasons, I would like to visit with our community about the guidelines and expectations we have for our home volleyball contests.  We will be expecting everyone that attends our games to follow all guidelines as set by the IGHSAU.  We will discontinue selling admission if we feel the capacity has reached a level where these guidelines cannot be met.

We will have one section of bleachers available for player’s family seating. All students must view the game from the upper level. Chairs are available to use on the upper balconies. Please maintain 6 feet of separation when using these chairs.

Guidelines:

  • Those in attendance are asked/expected to socially distance whenever possible and consider wearing a face covering when this is not possible.
  • Anyone that is sick or is experiencing any symptoms should not attend.  Also, please do not attend if you have recently been around anyone that has tested positive in the past 2 weeks.
  • Fans must maintain social distance from all players, coaches and officials.

We will not have any concessions available for our first contest on Tuesday, August 25th vs. Davenport West. We will allow personal water bottles and food/drink within reason. We will make adjustments to our guideline if necessary for future games.

We certainly want our parents, students and fans to enjoy our athletic contests, but please understand the individual responsibilities of attending Assumption Athletic events.  Good Luck to all participants and Let’s Go Knights!

Wade King
Athletic Director

AHS Thursday Prayer Group

The AHS Prayer Group invites the entire Assumption family (parents, grandparents, alumni, etc.) to gather for prayer and Rosary each Thursday at 8:45 a.m. in the Faculty Parking Lot. Please bring a chair and join us in offering intentions for our entire AHS community!
Every Thursday the AHS Prayer Group prays for the students (each by name, one class per week), 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, 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.
