Dear Friends,

I would like to thank the 60 families that have already returned the registration form to return to Assumption for the 2017-18 school year. To ensure that everyone has equal access to finacial assistance, the registration process is slightly different this year.  I encourage every family to return the completed registration form with full payment of the $200 fee (one fee per familiy) and the Bishop's Scholarship Application to the main office by February 15.

The period of priority registration for current Assumption families will end on February 15.  Open enrollment for new families begins on Wednesday.  We will continue to accept current family registrations until all seats are filled, but a place in next year's class can not be guarenteed after February 15.

Remember, your registration is not complete without receipt of the $200 registration fee.  Additionally, if your 2016-17 tuition account is past due please contact the bookeeper, Patrica Johnson, at 203-255-0556 ext. 178 to make payment arrangements.

Should you plan to not enroll at Assumption for the upcoming year please return the registration form and indicate your intentions and the reason for leaving.

Last week we hosted the largest open house in recent history, each day the office fields numerous calls from families interested in enrolling their children at our school. To be fair to all parties, we need to know how many students we can accept and still have room for our current students to continue their exceptional education at Assumption.

I look forward to having your children in the upcoming school year.

Many Blessings,

Steven J. Santoli

2017-18 Bishop Scholarship Fund Applications
BSF Application Process  is Ongoing

All families should have received a registration packet for next year. Included in that packet was the application for the Bishop's Scholarship Fund. 

Any family seeking financial assistance of any kind must complete the paper application and the online FACTS financial needs assessment to be considered for financial assistance in 2017-2018.
Financial assistance is granted on a yearly basis.  

No BSF application can be submitted for consideration without a signature from the school principal certifying that the students have been accepted and enrolled at the school and the $200 fee has been paid.

The deadline for the BSF application is April 1.  Notification of awards will begin on April 15.  Applications will be considered in the order in which they are received.

Assumption will host a financial assistance night to help with the application process later in February.

Please feel free to contact Karen Guastelle with any questions or concerns at 203-334-6271 or

Uniform and  Spirit Wear  Clarification
Items Purchased Through Dennis Uniform can be Worn During the School Day  

The official school uniform is outlined on our website, click here for a link to the uniform section of the homepage. Below are some guidelines to remind you of the uniform expectations.


Only the 8th grade has permission to wear hooded sweatshirts as part of the official uniform. 

All other students may wear their spirit wear sweatshirts to school, but they will be asked to take them off during the school day.  There are several options available through Dennis Uniform if your child is cold in the traditional uniform during the day.  

On dress uniform days girls can wear the cardigan sweater and boys can wear the sweater or sweater vest over their shirt and tie. Both boys and girls can wear the long sleeve or fleece vest throughout the day.

Shoes and Sneakers

Casual shoes such as loafers, boat shoes, Mary Janes, or lace up dress shoes are to be worn on dress uniform days.  Boots or sneakers are not acceptable!

Modest sneakers are to be worn on gym days.  Sneakers should be of a solid color, preferably black, white, blue, or gray.  Bright, flashy, neon, or light up sneakers are not permitted. 

Gym Uniform

During the colder months students must wear the sweatpants for gym days.  Stunts should also wear the gray gym shirt with the logo on gym days. Should they choose to wear the gray sweatshirt, the official tee shirt should be work underneath.  

The tie dyed spirit wear shirt is not acceptable for gym days. Only the pink breast cancer shirt may be worn as an alternative to the official gray tee shirt.

Spirit Wear

Spirit wear can be ONLY worn to school with an official dress down pass or on designated Spirit Wear Days.

Please make every effort to acquire the proper uniforms through Dennis Uniform or the school uniform store.  Contact the HSA at to inquire about uniform store access.
