REMINDER: HSA Christmas Collection 

EXTENDED-Now due Wednesday 12/2 

There is still time to participate in the HSA Christmas Collection for our faculty and staff. Each year families are invited to make a donation to this collection which is shared with our faculty and staff as a Christmas thank you from our Assumption families. Theteachers are very appreciative of this remembrance during the holiday season. 

If you are able and would like to make a donation but cannot find the flyer and envelope that was sent home a few weeks ago, please just be sure to label your envelope “HSA Christmas Collection” and include your family name on the front.  Cash or checks payable to “Assumption HSA” are both accepted.

Many thanks for your continued generosity to our dedicated faculty and staff.


Final weekend to order Assumption Sweatpants in time for Christmas. Navy & Black with White lettering OR Grey with Maroon lettering. $25 each. Please email your order to Susanne Sweeney at susannesweeney3@gmail.com by end of today-Sunday, Nov. 30.

The cloistered Carmelite Sisters of Morristown are devoted to praying more than eight hours a day for peace in our community and in the world. They are dependent on the goodwill of the community to meet their basic needs and unfortunately, the Assumption Church annual bake sale benefiting the Carmelite Sisters cannot be held this year due to the Covid pandemic.

In lieu of the bake sale, volunteers have created a cookbook of desserts, “Sweet Carmel,” which includes Catholic themed photos taken by a professional food photographer!

There will be a limited number of printed copies available by mid-December. The 80+ page cookbook will be high end magazine quality with a bounded spine. There is also a digital version that can be downloaded immediately upon payment.

Thank you for your consideration and your support. Please keep the Carmelite Sisters in your prayers, especially during these trying times. Blessings.

The world’s thy ship and not thy home

Just a reminder to Pre-K families that all preschoolers need documentation of a flu shot by December 1.  Please send it to the nurse ASAP.
