Attention Middle School students and families:
We are looking forward to seeing you on orientation day! Come meet and greet your teachers and see your friends that you’ve missed all summer! Bring your smiles, but don’t bring all your school supplies just yet! It can be a little crazy and frantic with beginning of the year excitement on orientation day, so here are some suggestions of what to bring on orientation day and what to bring on the first day of school.
On orientation day, DO bring your locker shelves and any locker decorations you might want to put inside like magnetic white message boards, magnetic pencil cups, mirrors, or decorative magnets. Feel free to set up your locker in preparation for the first day of school! Please also bring items from the supply list such as tissues, wipes, hand sanitizer, and paper towels and leave them in your homeroom classroom.
Use the list below to identify what items to bring on the first day. Your teachers will guide you through setting up and labeling your materials during the first week of school.
Remember to save a few brown paper bags from the grocery store as they make great book covers. Check out the following for step-by-step directions on how to make a book cover from a brown paper grocery bag.
All Saints teachers have prepared a list of learning activities for each of the grade levels designed to reinforce math skills and to encourage reading during the summer break. After reviewing the assignments, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher should you have any questions.
For the first time, All Saints was pleased to live stream our Eighth Grade Graduation Ceremony. Our thanks to Mr. Ryan Osial. an associate of Mrs. Pora, for providing us with this opportunity to share the ceremony with those who were unable to attend!
Students gathered to test their knowledge of the Catholic faith in All Saints’ 6th Annual Catholic Cup. Winners of their classroom competitions from grades 4-8 advanced to this final round of The Catholic Cup, an academic-style competition.
As the event emcee, Mr. Tessier posed questions related to Catholic theology and teaching while participants provided answer after answer until the group of contestants came down to just two finalists for the championship round of the competition.
Sample questions during the event included:
What is the word that means to promote unity among all Christian religions (winning question) … Ecumenism
What is the term used to describe the changing of the bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ … Transubstantiation
Which part of Mass helps us to prepare for worship and includes the Opening Prayer? … Introductory Rites
Congratulations to Abby Yelvington, our 2017 Catholic Cup Winner, and Emma Reynolds, our runner-up.
We would like to congratulate all of our classroom winners for their outstanding participation:
We want to acknowledge the wonderful work of Mrs. Bill and Mr. Tessier who serve as our faculty coordinators, and extend a very special thank you to the members of our 2017 judging panel:
Fr. Noah Morey – All Saints Parochial Vicor
This uplifting event provides a wonderful way for all of our students, those directly participating and those watching from the audience, to learn and grow in their faith.
Last Friday both the All Saints beginner and advanced bands performed at the High Note Music Festival in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Our advanced band performed extremely well and was awarded “Superior” ratings from both judges. Our beginner band, performing for the first time ever at the Festival, earned “Excellent” ratings from the judges and played their best ever. The trip to Hershey was a tremendous success, beginning with a traditional Amish breakfast in Lancaster, followed by the bands’ performances and the remainder of the day spent at Hershey Park. Congratulations to Mr. Ward, Mr. Sawasky and all of the students on this wonderful achievement!
All Saints announced plans to celebrate the school’s 60th anniversary in style during a surprise student assembly on Monday, May 22. The event featured a birthday skit written by former All Saints teacher Mrs. Lewis and performed by an all-star cast of All Saints teachers and clergy (Fr. Juan). The Master of Ceremony was none other than Mr. Tessier, All Saints religion teacher and Director of Youth Ministry. The end of the skit featured the introduction of a surprise guest … the All Saints Eagle mascot.
