First Friday Mass

We were honored and excited to host Archbishop Hebda. On the feast of St. Joseph the Worker, Archbishop Hebda reminded us that we grow closer to God through our own work.  His visit was truly a blessing for the ASCA community.

Garden Request


We would like to plant mini trees in Mr. Lynch’s garden, which is located on 13th Street.  They will beautify the front of the school, and we will decorate them for the holidays.  We need your help, either in the form of garden material or a monetary donation.  Please send your contribution in an envelope marked Mr. Lynch’s Garden.  Thank you.


Kudos and high fives to our 3rd and 4th grade boys’ basketball team who finished their UNDEFEATED season yesterday by winning the championship!  Special thanks to Coach Hoffmann and Coach Kielb for giving so freely of their time, support, and expertise.  The boys couldn’t have done it without you!

Read All About It!

Do you know we have a school newspaper?  Under the guidance of moderator Ms. Hennessey, her staff of students in grades 6-8 have been working on writing articles and taking photographs to put forth the mission of The Paw Print:  to inform and entertain; to let us know about upcoming events and news in ASCA.  Click the tab at the side menu to start reading!

Congratulations, ASCA!

The results are in — all the  monies have been counted — congratulations to our ASCA student body for bringing in more money for the 2014 “Jump Rope for Heart”  drive than any other school in Hudson County!  Your generosity raised $7,753!  Kudos!

Thank you!

The 2013/2014 Home School Board would like to extend our appreciation to Tom Attisano for all his help with getting the blinds installed on the windows in the gym.  Thank you for all you have done!
