Room 108 third graders and their Buddies in Room 210 got together to make bouquets and cards for Mrs. Jackie Smith. Known to all students as Ms. Jackie, she is our wonderful Lunch Lady. Ms. Jackie greets everyone with a smile and makes sure hot lunches are ready on time. No one goes hungry in her lunchroom! Ms. Jackie was thrilled!
Mrs. Fogarty's class has been very active! They've gone to the Oak Park Conservatory to study conifers, but in the classroom they've been busy making posters and placemats and using technology in the new reading program. Visit Her Teacher Page – you'll be impressed! Mrs. Kane's class has been busy, too, visit her Teacher Page as well!
Ascension's 4th grade team played the Ascension 3rd grade team this evening and the game resulted in a 0-0 tie. Both teams gave it their all, and it's wonderful to see smiles all around at the conclusion. Good Game!
Thanks to Mrs. Bernard for the outstanding photos.
A walk down the quiet halls of Ascension belie what's going on within the classrooms. There are Science experiments, physical workouts, language lessons in English and Spanish as well as activities to foster a firm foundation in Faith. All homeroom teachers began a new year of Olweus anti-bullying lessons.
ICE CREAM! Every treat is $1 and benefits the Class of 2019!
