The entire school gathered to give thanks for all God has given us, and to be reminded eo be generous to those in need. Our non-perishable gifts were brought to the altar, and later boxed by the student council. After prayer, Mrs. Polega announced the Honor Roll for the first trimester. Ascension wishes a Happy Thanksgiving to all.
Kindergarten classes shared an early morning Thanksgiving Breakfast Feast on Tuesday. We feel so fortunate to be able to share friendship and to be thankful for all that we have been given.
