We welcomed to Assumption Catholic School our new students and their families during our Back to School BBQ on Thursday, 09/20. ACS faculty and administration members worked all day to make sure that everyone would have a good time. It was wonderful seeing our students, families and staff eating and laughing together. Over 150 Guests were treated to choices of hot dogs, hamburgers and chicken. Along with these choices they also had choices of homemade salads like potato salad, pasta salad, coleslaw salad, and some other tasty items. After finishing their meal, and if there was still enough room, the guests moved on to the dessert table where they found great selections of bake goods. Thank you to all who were able to attend the Annual Back to School BBQ. What a great way to begin our new school year! It was an enjoyable evening of food, fun and fellowship with friends and family. Special thank you to ALL our full and part time teachers for all of the hard work and labor before, during and after the event.
The students had a snack and sat around the table sharing one another’s Cereal Box Book Report! The students each presented their Book Box to the class telling us the Title of the book, The Author, Character Names and descriptions, Setting and a Summary of the book. They ended giving the book a rating! Mrs. Cooper and Mrs. Rosell are happy to report most books were given an average of ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.
We are all looking forward to an exciting and productive school year!
Last Sunday, 49 pilgrims on the bus and many more in their own cars returned safely after a wonderful trip to the Holy Dormition Pilgrimage in Sloatsburg, NY. The highlight of the pilgrimage was undoubtedly the Pontifical Divine Liturgy presided by His Beatitude Patriarch Sviatoslav Shevchuk and celebrated by many hierarchs of our Ukrainian Catholic Church in America and thousands of faithful from other parishes praying together. After a nearly an-hour drive filled with prayer and the recitation of the Rosary, our bus arrived at Mary’s House in Sloatsburg, where we were personally greeted with a smile, handshake and even hugs by the Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate, who organized this beautiful pilgrimage. It was a day of peace, prayerful reflection, spiritually uplifting and joy filled
On Saturday, June 23, 2018 the Assumption Parish in Perth Amoy, NJ held its 6th Annual Ukrainian Cultural Festival on the grounds of the parish. The Festival was a huge success, thanks to the hard work of our volunteers, the support of our sponsors, and the joy and energy of everyone who attended. We are truly blessed at Assumption parish to have so many parishioners who give of their time, talent, and treasure to support us. We estimate that well over 1000 parishioners and guests joined us for a fun-filled day that included delicious homemade Ukrainian food and deserts, Ukrainian beer, a church tour, a Beautiful Baskets raffle, money loterey and more.
This year our parish was honored with the presence of Wilda Diaz, a mayor of the City of Perth Amboy and His Excellency Bishop Andriy Rabiy, the Apostolic Administrator of the Ukrainian Archeparchy of Philadelphia, PA who visited the festival for the first time. Thank you again to all that attended and supported the Festival, and we are looking forward to an even bigger and better event next year.
ACS Classes of 2019, 2020, and 2021 closed out their science school year with a few extra activities. The Class of 2019 spent time putting their studies about DNA into practice. Students worked in pairs to remove DNA from strawberries. They were amazed with their accomplishment. Meanwhile, the Class of 2020 studied and tested the melting point of chocolate containing different amounts of cacao. The students happily consumed the left over chocolate from their investigations. Finally, all three classes made solar ovens out of pizza boxes. They cooked s’mores in their ovens and ended the school year consuming the results of their solar cooking attempts. This was a delicious ending to a busy, happy school year! Wishing everyone a safe and happy summer.
