The Knights of San Salvador Council # 299 presented their annual Shield Awards. Each year, the Council honors a firefighter, an EMT, a police office, a Senior Citizen and a good local hero who have performed exceptional service during this year. This year, the Council also honored two ACS teachers with the Teacher of the Year Award : Kindergarten teacher Miss Drayton for the year of 2020 and Seventh Grade teacher Mrs. Lombardi for the year of 2021.
We bid our little graduates best of luck and farewell from their ACS home. Kindergarten here they come! Find information for enrolling your child in HPCA for 2022-2023! http://
The sky was gray and full of clouds but there was sunshine in our hearts. It was picnic day for Assumption Catholic School at Warren Park in Woodbridge. ACS students played basketball, soccer, catch, went on hikes, talked, went on swings, and just enjoyed the park. Our Family and School Association grilled burgers and hot dogs for everyone, plus provided watermelon. All the smiling faces told us it was just the perfect day.
Mrs Shumny welcomed all of the dads/stepdads and then the students entertained with songs and poems, followed by coffee and donuts. Mrs Shumny had several prizes that were given away with a grand prize of $100. She explained that at the Moms’ tea the grand prize was a $100 gift card to a spa. So, the dad that won the $100 could use the money to purchase a gift card for his wife for a trip to a spa! Dads/stepdads ended the morning taking pictures with their children at the special photo spot. Special thanks to the Class of 2023 for serving all of our families. Thank you to the FSA for making this day possible!
Assumption Catholic School is proud to present our 53rd graduating Eighth Grade class.
Nineteen strong, smart, funny, kind, helpful teenagers prayed together Saturday morning with their teachers and families joining them in Divine Liturgy. They received their diplomas from Mrs. Shumny and Father Ivan, and then it was picture time. Afterwards, students and their families came back to school for their breakfast and awards ceremony. Our Valedictorian, Alayne, Salutatorian, Ethan, and Honorable Mention, Kiera made speeches and then awards were handed out. Each student received recognition for clubs and activities they participated in, and received monetary awards donated by teachers, parishioners and supporters of our school. Our generous supporters donated over $8000 to our graduates to recognize our students’ achievements in school subjects, community service, honoring their heritage and living their faith. The weather was perfect and the ceremony was beautiful. Congratulations to our graduates!
