We love grandparents!

Grandparents Day

Grandparents are our favorite guests!
Grandparents Day 2019! 

Ascension School celebrates Grandparents Day on Friday, May 3th, 2019. We are pleased to send invitations to the grandparents or to a special aunt or uncle, neighbor or friend who might serve in the role of grandparent for your student. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to show off their school to some of the most important adults in their lives.

Grandparents will be welcomed into the school to see classrooms, enjoy a special reception and to attend an all-school liturgy. Early dismissal and a half-day of school allow students to go out to lunch with grandparents! Grandparents are our favorite people, and we look forward to a wonderful day.

 Please contact the Advancement Office at 708-434-1541 to request an invitation, or if you have any questions about Grandparents Day.


Preschool students who do not ordinarily attend school on Fridays are welcome to attend with their Grandparents, and must stay with their adult guest throughout the event.  

Students in PK & Kindergarten may attend Mass with their grandparents as long as a permission slip is returned before May 1st.

Schedule for the Day
8:30  Open House 

Grandparents can enter the school at 8:30. Please do not arrive earlier than 8:30, as they will not be admitted to classrooms before 8:30. Enter at either the Pine Room entrance or at the Gym entrance.
A tour guide will meet them at either the Gym entrance or Pine Room entrance and direct them to their grandchild’s classroom.


Refreshments will be served in the school’s Gym after the Open House. Student artwork will also be displayed in the Gym, and our Chamber Orchestra will perform.


Photos will be taken in the Pine Room. The cost of the photos is $12 for one print and $20 for two prints.

10:30 Mass Our special school mass is in church. Students will sit with their classes.
11:45 Dismissal for Lunch

New this year! Because it is a half-day, students will return to their homerooms after Mass, and will be dismissed like a normal school day.

Students will be allowed to leave campus with their grandparents for lunch as long as they have a signed permission statement from a parent. Please have that permission in the office no later than Wednesday, May 1,



   If you have more than one grandchild at Ascension, we encourage you to visit the oldest child's classroom first.



  •     Ascension’s Gym and Church are handicapped accessible.
