Dear Assumption Family,

This weekend I had the pleasure of attending the awards ceremony  for the Connecticut Women's History Month Essay Contest sponsored by State Representative Brenda Kupchick at the Fairfield Museum. Representative Kupchick instituted this contest about 8 years ago to expose young girls in Fairfield schools to the wonderful history of powerful and influential women in Connecticut and help to inspire their future greatness.  

All sixth grade students in the town were asked to write an essay about a famous Connecticut woman and how they influence their life. Julia B. and Alana D. wrote spectacular essays and represented Assumption Catholic School with poise and grace.  The skill in their writing and articulate presentations set them apart from the rest of the students, and that is not just a proud principal's bias. The girls read their essays to the collective group and received a citation from the state of Connecticut as well as a monetary award from the Fairfield County Bank.  

Anytime we get the opportunity to celebrate our students fills me with joy and pride, but this occasion was extra special. At the end of the ceremony I was approached by two principals from public middle schools in Fairfield. The first said, "Boy, were those Assumption kids prepared!" Both principals then asked if we teach public speaking at school. They were impressed at how well our students spoke and made eye contact during the presentation. As I beamed with pride I explained that one of the many special advantages of a small Catholic school is the confidence our students gain, and the comfort they feel in public speaking. I attribute this to the supportive and nurturing environment in our school and the copious opportunities to lead and participate in Mass. 

I left the ceremony filled with pride in our students and gratitude to our teachers for their hard work in preparing our students for lifelong success. Of course I continue to thank God everyday for the opportunity to work with you to help your children grow into exemplary young women and men.

Many Blessings,

Steven J. Santoli

On the 12th: we will spread new playground mulch, paint trim around playground and complete all other projects.

To celebrate our accomplishments, Rita's Ice will be served for all those in attendance!

During the week leading up to these service days, we are seeking parent volunteers with landscape experience to prepare the site and also with trucks or large vehicles to help pick up mulch, plants, etc.
