Congratulations to our winners.

Each year, the Knights of Columbus sponsors an essay contest, Keep Christ in Christmas, for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students who are enrolled at All Saints Catholic Academy and parish CCD classes.  This year, ASCA boasts all three first place winners.  Pictured (from left to right) are Mr. Policastro (head Knight), Gavin Skowronski (grade 7A), Eric Tonne (grade 6B), Alessandra De Dios (grade 8B), and Rev. Peter Wehrle (pastor, Blessed Miriam Teresa Demjanovich Parish). Congratulations!

Thank you!

ASCA’s faculty would like to offer our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to Sr. Rita, our secretarial/ business staff, nurses, and maintenance crew this 2017 Christmas season. Without you, ASCA wouldn’t be the same. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Toys for Texas

All Saints Catholic Academy’s Student Council sponsored a “Toys for Texas” Drive benefitting Archdiocesan of Houston schools and families affected by the historic flooding of Hurricane Harvey.  The 3 week drive yielded over $450 worth of gift cards to store like Toys R’ Us, Walmart, and and over 360 toys or games that will be distributed to students and families at Sacred Heart Catholic School in Crosby, TX, and Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School in Galena, TX. Ryan Divan, a 6th Grader, and his father, who generously offered to pay for the shipping costs of all collected items, brought this idea to ASCA’s Student Council because Ryan wondered how he’d feel if his family lost his belongings in a flood.  ASCA students also sent homemade Christmas cards to both schools.

Individual photo retakes (Grades Pre-K – 7) will take place this Thursday, December 7th. Please be sure to send in forms if you are having a photo retaken. Any student who was absent for the first Photo Day will have his/her photo taken Thursday as well.
