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.

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.
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.
