Buddy Bowling


How do you give the entire school a Buddy Bowling adventure? Lots of planning from Home and School (and lots of buses!) Everyone had a pizza lunch, too. Thank you, Home and School and Room Parents!

Monday's Mass

Our Mass for St. Angela Merici, foundress of the Ursulines, was extra special! The first graders sang "Jesus' Love is Bubbling Over" for the school. Click the song to see a picture.

Colors Day


Ascension was a very colorful place Wednesday! Buddies dressed in like colors. The sixth graders and 3rds graders were in various shades of GREEN!
