Thank you to everyone who took the time to return the After School Survey. We are happy to announce that the After School Program will begin again on April 19th after Easter break. There will be a few changes. After school will begin at 1:45 p.m. and end at 5:00 p.m. for grades K – 8. PreK 4 hours will be 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Please remember this is not a drop in program. If you have not filled out a registration form for the 20/21 school year, you must fill one out before your child can attend the program. You can find the registration on the Assumption website under Back to School, After School Registration 2020-2021. Snacks and drinks will be provided as always, but if your child has an allergy, you must provide a snack for them. We’re looking forward to having the kids back with us for after school!

ST. JOSEPH’S TABLE – Next Collection April 26 – 30
School/Parish Food Drive during this Year of St. Joseph
In recognition of the Year of St. Joseph, the school and the parish will host a St. Joseph’s Table where we will collect nonperishable food items to be distributed to the Diocesan Catholic Charities food pantries during the week of March 15 – 19 and again April 26 – 30 in honor of St. Joseph’s upcoming feast days (March 19th & May 1st).
St. Joseph’s Table is a long standing Sicilian tradition. Legend has it that during a time of drought and famine, no rain fell on Medieval Sicily. Food crops for both people and livestock withered and died. The people prayed to St. Joseph for help. When the clouds opened, the desperately-needed rain poured down, and there was much rejoicing!
After the harvest, to show their gratitude, they prepared a table with special foods to honor St. Joseph and to share with the poor. After thanking and honoring the saint, they distributed the food to the less fortunate.
We invite you to send to the school non-perishable food items to be placed on the St. Joseph’s Table that will be set up in our lobby. We will have a special blessing on the food collected. All of your generous donations will then be transported to Hope House in Dover, Father English Center in Paterson, and Catholic Charities Food Pantry in Sussex County where it will become available to help our brothers and sisters in need. During this time of Lent, let us be most generous to help those who need it most.
