An email was sent out this summer regarding a diocese upgrade to our iXL website.  While all students usernames and passwords remain the same, the web address/site to login has changed. Please remember the new website to log in for iXL will be https://www.ixl.com/signin/paterson.

Alternatively, you can also add @paterson after the login id, to enter the site. Any work they have completed thus far has been moved to the new platform.

Any questions or concerns, please contact support@assumptionnj.org.

Check out our Ad Journal opportunity and the various donation options for our Gift Auction, Silent Auction and Chanel committees as they create a fabulous array of gifts for our show.
