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.

2018 Educational Trip to Europe!

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.”

ASCA Pledge for Peace

All Saints Catholic Academy’s students participated in the Archdiocese of Newark’s First Annual Stem Expo. Students in grades Kindergarten through Four were invited to create an art piece revolving around the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals concerning Peace and Justice. After discussing Global Peace and Justice in Art class, students collaborated to create an “ASCA Peace Pledge”. Along with this pledge, students used recycled materials to create unique hand prints that are used as symbols of our students reaching out to bring peace to our world. The painted Earth with outreaching hands is a visual representation of how students intend to put our Peace Pledge into action.
