Welcome to Ascension

Mark Your Calendar


It's Halloween!


This week's celebration included special lunchtime concerts by the Band and Orchestra! On Friday, students are in black and orange clothing while Kindergartners parade in costume! PK-4 students were in costume, too.

A Walk to the Park


The Kindergartners took a walking field trip to Fox Park on Thursday, Oct. 23rd. We ended our "Friends" reading unit and celebrated by going there with our "classroom friends." It was a beautiful day!

The Art Institute


Mrs. Pesce took the 8th graders to the Art Institute of Chicago this week. The docent interpreted Paris Street Rainy Day by Caillebotte.

Blue Tie Auction

Mark your calendars and gather your friends for the 2014 edition of Ascension's fabulous Auction! The Blue Tie Auction is Ascension’s most important fund raiser of the year. Join us on November 15th, 2014 as we honor our fabulous Pastor, Fr. Larry McNally. This will be a celebration you will not want to miss!
