Spring Concert

The end of the school year is full of many different celebrations and this afternoon was no exception! Parents gathered to see our students perform one last time for the 2023-2024 school year. Our Ukrainian dancers debuted two new pieces, an all-girl basket

dance and a piece dedicated to the Ukrainian soldiers on the frontlines.
Our chimes and show choir performed one of our favorite songs, De Colores. Students from pre-k up to seventh grade sang a selection of songs from Sesame Street.
There was the “Baa Baa Bamba,” performed by our Pre-K and Kinder students accompanied by our seventh grade students on ukuleles, “Dance Myself to Sleep” which featured our 3rd and 4th graders singing and tap dancing, and classics like “One Small Voice” sung by 1st and 2nd grade and “Sing” performed by our 6th and 7th graders in both English and featuring a Spanish language solo by 6th grader Luis. The program was rounded out with a few other Sesame Street classics that definitely had some parents singing along, reminiscing about their own childhood. All agreed that the students were fantastic and put on a show enjoyed by all.
Thank you to Ms. Lawrence for her dedication to our students and ACS

Graduation Class 2024!

Assumption Catholic School presents its 55th graduating Eighth Grade graduating class. Twenty-four strong, smart, funny, kind, and helpful teenagers gathered with their teachers and families for Divine Liturgy on Saturday morning. Following the service, Mrs. Shumny and Father Ivan awarded them their diplomas, and it was time for pictures.

Afterward, students and their families returned to the school for breakfast and an awards ceremony. Our Valedictorian, Timofey, Salutatorian, Lucas, and Honorable Mention, Elijah, delivered heartfelt speeches before the awards were handed out. Each student was recognized for their achievements and received monetary awards donated by teachers, parishioners, and supporters of our school. Our generous supporters contributed nearly $6000 to honor our students’ excellence in academics, community service, heritage, and faith.

The weather was perfect, and the ceremony was beautiful. May God these beautiful students as they start their High School years.

Congratulations to the Class of 2024

Warren Park Picnic

Another end the school year adventure took place today!
On this beautiful, cool, sunny morning ACS students met at Warren Park for their annual picnic. They went on hikes, played basketball, had fun in the playgrounds, and just enjoyed being out in the sunshine. The FSA prepared the food that was enjoyed  by all. Many parents and alumni were so helpful and we are so appreciative of everyone’s time and help! Many students went on a hike with Ms. Roque,  where they met the challenge of making  it up “the hill.” The day could not be complete without saying thank you to Mr Lee, our benefactor, who made this day possible and of course the delicious ice cream truck!

Hershey Park Trip

Assumption Catholic School students in grades 3-8 had a fantastic opportunity to visit Hersheypark today! What began as a creative proposal from our enthusiastic Third grade class has become a reality, and we couldn’t be more thrilled!

A big shoutout to our amazing FSA for funding one of the charter buses, making the trip more affordable for everyone.

Our day was filled with thrilling rides, delicious food, and most importantly, unforgettable moments with great friends.

Sodality at Assumption Catholic School

On Friday, May 3, 2024  Sodalists from Assumption Catholic School (ACS) in Perth Amboy, NJ participated in a special Liturgy and a consecration ceremony of 26 new members. Fr. Ivan Turyk delivered a homily about Mary’s journey to Elizabeth and gave a special blessing to each of the girls.
ACS Sodality is a sisterhood comprised of young ladies and women (grade 3 and beyond) who practice the ideals set forth by Our Blessed Virgin Mary. Sodality has been part of ACS’ history for over 50 years and our young ladies are committed to growing in personal holiness and serving their school community through their consecration to Jesus through Mary. The young women of this Sodality, under a spiritual guidance of our school sisters Sr. Veronica, Sr. Trijtsi and Sr. Svitanku were preparing for this day for the whole year. They attended meetings, learned songs and deepened their knowledge about the Blessed Mother of God.
Our Sisters, who belong to the order of Sisters Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará, also decorated a church, personally have sew all caps and prepare a very moving ceremony for our sodalists and their parents,  who were in  the attendance.
During the consecration ceremony, the candidates made their Marian pledge and received from Fr. Ivan and Sisters a medal and a blue blessed garment as an outward sign of their consecration with the Sodality.
