St. John’s Soup Kitchen

The Class of 2024 spent this evening working in St. John’s Soup Kitchen in Perth Amboy, which has been serving residents for over 17 years! They arrived early to help Father Mike set up and feed about 75 hungry people. They served homemade chicken rice soup, baked ziti, salad, Italian bread, and a dessert. Students learned every detail of preparing and serving and they did it with a smile. At the end of the evening, some very tired yet, happy eighth graders left with an appreciation of giving back to their community.

**Grant funding for all food and supplies has been provided by the City of Perth Amboy City Council through the American Rescue Plan Act-Non-Profit Assistance. -Ukrainian Assumption Catholic Church.

2023 ACS Christmas Concert

The Assumption Catholic School auditorium was packed with parents and grandparents that had come to see and hear our 2023 PreK-8 Christmas Program. Every student was standing tall, singing loudly and smiling at the crowd. There were lots of Christmas songs that covered traditional Ukrainian carols, special presentation in Spanish and Italian led by our Sisters.  The clapping from the audience demonstrated their appreciation and love of every performance! All students in the school were very excited about being up on the stage singing for their families. Thank you to all who attended and a heartfelt thank you to the program planner and music teacher; Miss Anna Lawrence.

Merry Christmas!

St. Nicholas’ Visit to ACS

To celebrate his arrival, 21CCLC Junior Drama Club put on a production about goodness always overcoming evil. The St. Nicholas’ Day Play is a long standing tradition at ACS and we are so proud that our actors and actresses are able to continue carry out another beautiful performance. And we thank St. Nick for always remembering our teachers, support staff and students! The play concluded with the students welcoming St. Nicholas to ACS by singing the traditional St. Nicholas Song, “O kto, kto Nikolaja l’ubit.”

Amazing job Ms. Shumny, Mrs. Florez and the 21CCLC Jr. Drama Club.

Class Ring Ceremony.

The ACS Class of  2024 had an exciting day today. Not only did they receive their class ring, but their day was topped off with the annual visit from Saint Nicholas!
Father Ivan blessed the rings, and Mrs. Shumny called each child forward to receive their ring. After the ceremony, families took pictures and finished in the lower level with bagels and muffins.  Parents left and the eighth graders returned to school to have the rest of the school turn their rings. The day was topped off with a visit from Saint Nicholas and their last photo-op with him. This day will forever remain a highlight of rheir time at ACS.
Congratulations, Class of 2024!
