Field Day/Fun Day 2021!

It was all fun and games on Tuesday afternoon! The many prayers said for decent weather definitely worked. The sun shone and there were too many smiles to count. The kids especially loved having their teachers join in the fun! 

Huge thanks to Mrs. Lisa Twining and Mrs. Bev Williams for organizing this great event and running it so smoothly. We are also very grateful to our PTC for providing the Sugar Shack visit. EVERYONE enjoyed the treats, and it was the perfect closure to crazy but wonderful school year! 

 

 

 

Gratitude for Health & Safety Volunteers 

Many of you came out early for mornings in the cold and rain to help us with the critical safety task of health assessments before our students entered the building. We are so thankful for your dedication to ensuring Assumption was a safe place to learn this year. We will remember the warmed rice bags fondly that kept our thermometers working and volunteer hands from freezing! 

Even more parents and grandparents adopted a regular shift for helping out as Playground Angels. Like our wonderful students, everyone adapted to our new (temporary) normal and made the best of things! Everyone was just so happy to be able to play together that we didn’t waste much time focusing on what wasn’t possible. Thank you for being true angels! 

We want to particularly thank two people who were instrumental in keeping these efforts up and running: 

Mr. Gary Blas (dad to Simeon, Jordan & Bella and Seattle firefighter/paramedic) helped to design our health screening protocol and was out there every single week to help us maintain classroom health by screening students and visitors. He showed new volunteers the ropes and arrived early every time with a smile on his face. We are so grateful for his leadership and constant willingness to help! 

Mrs. Jessica Sidhu took on the Playground Duty Supervisor role in February. It was a tough year to begin with, but to step into the middle of it as a brand-new staff member and take such ownership of our students’ safety was remarkable. She truly had their best interests at heart, and it was a great blessing to know she was taking care of things outside. We so look forward to having her as the Office Assistant on Thursdays and Fridays next year! 

 

 

Medication at School 

If you authorized us to administer medication at school this year, please pick up your child’s medicine no later than Friday, June 25th between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm. Anything unclaimed after that will be disposed of as it will expire shortly.  

 

 

Lost & Found 

Our collection of Lost & Found items was outside on display all day yesterday (thank you, Sara Rush!). Please call or stop by to look for any lost items by Friday, June 25th. After that, unclaimed uniform items will be donated to the used uniform sale collection and everything else will go to the Hope House. Thank you! 

 

 

Summer Packets 

Just a reminder that the paperwork sent home on June 2nd for the 2021-22 school year is due back in the office by Wednesday, June 30th.  

 

 

PTC News 

The PTC is so grateful to all the parents, teachers, and staff who helped make this unprecedented year a success in so many ways!  

We are still looking for a Scrip Coordinator for next year., which is an important year-round fundraiser. If you have any questions or would simply like to discuss what any of these roles entail, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Jessica, at volunteer.assumption@gmail.com.  

 

 

Class Photos 

Our resident graphic designer, Angie Huynh (mom to Hy and Di), is graciously helping us to put some personal touches on the informal class photos our 8th grade photography students took in May. We will be emailing those digital images to parents by class in the next week or so. If you like it, you’ll be able to make as many prints as you wish! 

If you enjoyed your child’s individual photo as it appeared in the yearbook and would like a digital copy, feel free to email Mrs. Dennis (ddennis@school.assumption.org). Many thanks to Mrs. Evans once again for her time and talent to supply them! 

 

 

Support for the Salcidos 

If you’re able to check in on the sign up this summer to see if the family may need a meal, our school support is much appreciated:  https://mealtrain.com/rw14nw 

 

 

Family Promise Bed Race 

The 4th Annual Family Promise Bed Races are on for Sept 26th! 

It would be wonderful to have Assumption School represented & promoted at this community event to help raise funds for children and their families experiencing homelessness.
