What’s Happening at AHS

United Way Day of Caring – May 16, 2019 – Service Hours

 

Volunteers are stepping up on multiple fronts.

Flooding has displaced businesses and homes and now, more than ever, our community needs to band together. Volunteer and advocacy efforts around this crisis will take place now and long after the water receeds.

That means it’s time to expand our volunteer efforts. Our work with the May 16 Day of Caring will continue. Volunteers can lend a hand to meet local nonprofit needs. In fact, right now, projects like preparing a learning garden, mentor for a day, camp clean ups, reading with kids, indoor and outdoor updates and so much more are waiting for volunteers like you.

Teams of all sizes, and individual volunteers, are invited to join us to complete these half or full-day projects. So roll up your sleeves and use your muscles – alongside the 1,400+ volunteers already registered – to help all Quad Citizens live their best life.

Quad Citizens are generous. Register now for Day of Caring. Stay tuned for flood volunteer needs.

Prom Update Letter and Post Prom Sign-up

Student Council members will be selling tickets during lunches until Friday May 3rd for $40 per person in order to provide everyone the opportunity to attend.

If your student would like to bring a guest from another school, they need to see Mr. Frieden for the proper dance guest permission form.  Please choose your attire with a standard of modesty in mind.  Any students who need assistance with acquiring appropriate attire or with purchasing a ticket should see Mrs. Murphy or Mr. Frieden, as there are means in place to make sure that financial barriers do not prevent any student from attending this fun event.

 

 

Thank You for Supporting April Knight

Dear Assumption Family,

I want to personally thank everyone who supported April Knight, Re-U-Knighted…and it feels so good! Whether you attended the event, donated an item, were a corporate sponsor, or purchased a raffle ticket, we could not have made the evening a success without you. A special thanks to Bill Obenauf, Dan DeVries, and Nick Haut for their leadership during the live auction – their commitment and comedic timing proved just the right mix for a fruitful auction.

As the income generated at April Knight supports such a variety of areas (including tuition assistance, academic programming, technological upgrades, and capital improvement projects), I thought it was important to share that revenue from this year’s event was well over the five year average, and we saw an incredible 10% increase when compared to last year alone!

On behalf of our students, faculty, and staff, thank you – you are what truly what makes Assumption special. Through your dedication and commitment it possible for us to continue providing an excellent Catholic education to our students.

Sincerely,
Andy Craig, President

ACT

The next ACT test date is scheduled for June 8, 2019 with a registration deadline of May 3rd.  I have attached the ACT registration flyer, giving you instructions on how to register, as well as the preparation booklet. Students are welcome to pick up a hard copies of these materials in Student Services.  JUNIORS, please remember, if you have not already done so, you are strongly encouraged to take the ACT by the end of your junior year. 

Please don’t forget about the ACT Club we have available for you here at Assumption:

  • ACT: Why not build your ACT knowledge, confidence, and understanding a little bit each week instead of cramming right before the test? ACT club takes only twenty minutes, and we finish so early, you won’t even have to miss practice! Testing is timed, and students are assisted in improving their testing speed. When time is up, either Mrs. Lamp, Mrs. Wallace, or Mrs. Eliopulos is available to answer questions and help students analyze their answers. ACT club meets TUESDAYS from 2:50 to 3:10. It is important to show up to ACT Club as frequently as possible before you take the ACT test.
