2017 National Blue Ribbon School

On Wed., Dec. 6, All Saints Catholic Academy  was recognized as a 2017 National Blue Ribbon School by the New Jersey Department of Education during an awards ceremony held in Trenton, New Jersey. Pictured are (rt. to left.): Arcelio Aponte, President, NJ State Board of Education, Kimberley Harrington, Commissioner Secretary, NJ State Board of Education, Mary McManus McElroy, Esq.,  NJ Director for Catholic School Families for the Archdiocese of Newark, Sr. Rita Marie Fritzen, OSF, Principal of ASCA, and Nicole Narese,  Chairperson for ASCA’s 2017 Blue Ribbon Bid.

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 Amazon.com 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.

Students in grades 6-8 are invited to participate in the June 2018 Educational Trip to Europe!

 

“Consider the Mediterranean Sea’s influence on the history—and modern culture—of three interconnected nations. From atop Montjuïc Hill in Barcelona, picture Christopher Columbus sailing into port to tell Queen Isabella I and King Ferdinand V of his voyage to the Americas. In Provence, notice how the lavender perfumes the salty sea air. And along the French Riviera, let the natural beauty and relaxed atmosphere inspire you.”

Ten Cents for Texas

Related image

We are all, undoubtedly, aware of the recent weather problems that Hurricane Harvey inflicted upon the state of Texas.

Part of ASCA’s Belief Statement, tells all that “We encourage our students to be charitable to others.”

With this in mind, the faculty, staff and students of our school will be holding a “TEN CENTS FOR TEXAS” campaign, Monday, September 11 through Thursday, September 14, 2017.

Students are asked to bring DIME donations to school, to be placed, at specific times, in grade canisters that will be set up in the gym. (This is strictly a good will gesture.)

In the meantime, you are asked to keep those Texans who have been affected in your prayers.

We will keep you updated on our progress.

 

Respectfully,

 

Mrs. M. Cole
