Weekly Word – May 14, 2017

“The loveliest masterpiece of the heart of God is the heart of a mother”.

Dear Moms and Grandmoms,
All of us here at Assumption School wish all of you a wonderful Mother’s Day.      – Sister Merris

Enrichment Day – Not only does Assumption School rock –  the Assumption Enrichment Committee rocks as well! Thank you for making Enrichment Day such a musically special day.

Tentative Assumption School 2017-2018 calendar is online.

Lateness at school has become very problematic.   I hate to do this, but from now until the end of the year any child who is late is going to have to miss recess.  There are always one or two exceptions, but I see the same children walking in late almost every day.

Please remember to check the online bulletin on our school website for important daily announcements and updates.

Please come support the Assumption students who have worked so hard!

Tickets are available for Assumption School’s performance of The Wizard of Oz on Friday, May 19 & Saturday, May 20 at 7pm in the school gym. Tickets are $12 each. Please send in your ticket orders as soon as possible to the attention of the main office. Make checks payable to Assumption HSA.  Please write in the memo of the check what night you would like to attend and tickets will be backpacked home.

Tickets may also be purchased in the main office.

The students have worked really hard – this is a show you don’t want to miss!

If you have any questions please contact Maureen Byrne:  mhbyrne2@gmail.com


We rocked it!!!  Thanks to all who made Assumption’s School of Rock another successful Enrichment Day for our children.  This day would not have been possible without the help and support of Sister Merris, the faculty and staff, and countless parent volunteers who worked hard to provide our children with a fun and enlightening day of activities.  We would also like to thank the following businesses who donated their time and talents to us for the day:

Aimee Morrill Briant, Crescendo Suzuki
Alan LeBoeuf
Art in Motion Academy of Dance
Happy Hawthorne
Mayo Performing Arts Center

The Original Music School

Rock on,

Christine Dam, Aileen Philbrick, moncler cluny careers and Laura Santoriello


ALL students who are 11 years old and entering 6th grade MUST have the Menactra (meningitis) and Tdap (tetanus, diptheria, acellular pertussis) vaccines.  If your child has already received these immunizations, great!  Please send a copy to the school nurse as soon as possible, but definitely before the start of the 2017-18 school year.

If your child has not already received these immunizations, please make an appointment now, to get it done promptly.  Your child must show documentation of these in order to enter 6th grade this fall.

Thank you for your cooperation and please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions.



Fashion Show Gift Auction is in full swing for Spring! A Gift Auction letter with donation envelope was backpacked via your youngest child this past week.

During the 2016-2017 school year, students at Assumption School have been introduced and using Google Classroom in grades 2nd-8th.  This cloud-service is part of the Google Suites for Education.  Classroom is a web-based application designed to help teachers create a “virtual” classroom to post announcements, assignments, share resources and knowledge, as well as interact with students.

In addition to Google Classroom, students have also been using Google Applications (Docs, Sheets, Slides, Draw, and Drive) to complete assignments and projects and submit online.

Over the next few weeks, the Weekly Word will feature an inside look at Google Classroom and other technologies being used at Assumption School.  This week we would like to introduce you to Google Classroom with this short video: Introduction to Google Classroom:
