Thank you from Mrs. Cole!

You May hear it referred to as:  tiring, chaotic, or confusing, but,
After a fun filled, action packed, fast paced, hectic Catholic Schools Week, I am happy to make the following report:

As a school, we donated over 200 canned goods to 3 local food pantries.  ( By the way, the students predicted that  the Philadelphia Eagles will handily defeat the New England Patriots)

The children in the Oncology department of Hackensack (Childrens) Hospital are the recipients of 316 boxes of character band aids.  ( A parent of a former cancer patient informed me that the choice of a Super Hero band aid, as opposed to a flesh toned one,  can be an instant attitude changer for both parent and child).

We almost reached our goal of 5,000 box tops for education!  We ended the week with 4,039.  Thank you for supporting our Physical Education/Field Day program.

We learned a great deal about students through our daily ” Acts of Kindness”.   Thank you for raising such conscientious, caring students!

ASCA , as a community, donated 31 pints of blood to the New York Blood Center.  Thank you to those parents, relatives, friends and 8 teachers who participated.  Together our donations will help 93 people!

To the Spirit Club, who once again, went above and beyond  exemplifying the Word of the Month.  Good job.

To the Eighth grade, sincerest thanks for a valiant effort in the competition against a small, determined faculty squad, who kept the winning streak alive.

To all who sent in family photos for our family tree.   Thanks.   (Stop by the front hall to check it out.  It will be posted until Friday, February 9, 2018)

Thanks to all of those students are parents who displayed their athletic ability in the Annual Parent vs 8 th grade student 6 base kickball game.  Congratulations to the victors!  (8th grade)

These are the only activities that I was directly involved with,  my appreciation for all of the support that you and your children  showed.  It is truly appreciated.

2017 National Blue Ribbon School

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 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.

Photo Retakes


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.
