Working with the Cook County Farm Bureau, Mr. Sengstock spent three days at various farms learning more about Illinois agricultural production, science, technology, and economics. Did you know that Illinois grows more pumpkins than any other state? Did you know all milk is free of antibiotics? Have you heard of the EverCrisp apple?  It’s the next big thing in the apple business. The 13 destinations on the trip included visits to a dairy farm, a beef farm, a vineyard, an apple orchard, a goat farm, a wool fiber mill, a distillery, and a dog treat factory.

Ascension boosters  Grade 2 and up formed a festive contingent of Oak Park's 4th of July parade this year! Student participants received a bright red Ascension Chargers tee and the chance to toss treats to the crowd along the way. The weather was hot and sunny, but they braved the elements and even got a cool shower along the way. Thanks to the Development Office for organizing our group and to all the students, alumni, and parents who marched!
