We are just about ½ way through our campaign and yet we have only reached 25% of our goal. If you have not sent in your 4 Grand Raffle books for your family, please do so as soon as possible! Given that this is our only fundraiser for the entire school year, your donation will make a great impact to our school. All books must be turned in by Friday, March 12th if you want to be entered to win the $10,000 AMEX gift card. If you would like purchase additional books, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Online Giving Campaign is also available if you would like to make a tax-deductible donation as well. A link can be found on the main page of the school’s website by clicking the “GIVING” button or following the link here (https://assumptionparish.org/assumption-school-online-giving-campaign)

MAALL MORRISTOWN AREA AMERICAN LITTLE LEAGUE
All Assumption School students are eligible to play for Morristown Area American Little League regardless of where you reside! Registration is now open. Visit the following link to register for the 2021 spring season: https://maall.sportngin.com/register/form/765860200
MAALL is confident that we will be able to provide a SAFE environment for our kids this spring season and will follow every precaution possible, similar to how we ran a safe but fun summer league in 2020 with more than 125 players. As an extra precaution, we have decided to start the season later in April this year to allow for kids to practice and play OUTDOORS ONLY.
*As with last season, if baseball is not permitted refunds will be issued.
