CHEERS, DAN! Please join us on Sunday. May 19th from 3:00 – 5:00 pm for an open house farewell in the Assumption gym for our beloved ACS principal, Dan Anderson!

As you all know, Dan and his family are moving back to California this July, where he will serve as Superintendent of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Monterey. Come out to show Dan our gratitude for his incredible servant leadership for the past eight years and raise a glass to his new adventure!

You can pitch in to give Dan the send-off he deserves. We need folks to set up, keep food and drink coming, clean up and keep an eye on active kiddos outside. Each shift is just one hour so helpers can also enjoy the party and there are even opportunities for middle schoolers to earn a service hour or two.

Please sign up for a spot if you can: Dan Farewell SignUpGenius

Saint Question of the Week!

If you think you know the answer to the question below, then write your name, grade, and guess on a piece of paper and turn it in to Mrs. King in the office.  We are and strive to be lifelong learners of our Catholic faith.  There is so much to learn!

Last Week:  St. Joseph is attributed as doing miraculous work on a spiral staircase in the Loretto Chapel in Sante Fe, New Mexico.  It is truly amazing.     

New Saint Question: St. Francis de Sales wrote two books: An Introduction to the Devout LifeandTreatise on the Love of God. These books greatly influenced which saint?

  1. St. Joan of Arc
  2. St. Padre Pio
  3. St. Vincent de Paul
