Assumption Catholic School families attended Divine Liturgy on Sunday, January 29, 2012 with parishioners to officially open Catholic Schools Week. During the homily Father Ivan spoke of the theme for the week, Faith, Academics, and Service. He also introduced three ACS students that had written essays about how ACS is out of this world in faith, academics, and service. Jillian of Grade 4, Emily of Grade 5 and Steven of Grade 8 read their essay to the parish and ACS families in attendance. At the end of Liturgy Student Council members passed out small candies that gave parishioners “a hug and a kiss” for their heartfelt support.”
Monday began many activities that students and teachers alike enjoyed. There were brunches and breakfasts, movies and scavenger hunts. Younger children participated in a reading marathon sponsored by the Class of 2012. Pre K children were helping hands around the world while Student Council spent each lunch day counting pennies for our “Pennies for Technology” fundraiser.
On Wednesday every class from Pre K to fifth grade had the chance to play games at the carnival sponsored by the Classes of 2012, 2013, and 2014. After dismissal Father Ivan took the teachers out to lunch at Olive Garden.
Friday closed out the week with lunch provided by our FSA, followed by a pep rally and Class of 2012 vs the Faculty volleyball game. Mrs. Shumny had everyone on their feet cheering for each other. The volleyball game was almost as exciting as the Super Bowl The score went back and forth until finally the faculty was able to seal the game with a 15 – 13 win over the students.
As another Catholic Schools Week came to an end, students could take with them the memories they made with their teachers, their classmates, and the rest of the school. Be sure to view the pictures that can be found on our ACS web site.
