Dear Assumption Family,

Today I would like to send a special thank you to all of the dads in the Assumption Community.  Thank you for all you do for your children and families everyday. I would like to extend a special thank you to those dads that have come above and beyond to help our entire school community last week.

When we put out the call for help in preparing the outside of the school for a beautification project and general clean up help, two fathers answered the call immediately. Mr. Adamoski volunteered his time to lay the timber boarder for our new outdoor garden and seating area.  Mr. Kurzatkowski lent his expertise and equipment to trim trees around the building and clean up the roof and gutters. More dads offered to help with the April 5 clean-up that was rained out and I hope they can help this week on Thursday and/or Friday as well.

Saturday morning I had the joy of working with several of our dads to cook and serve brunch for our community at the Easter Bunny Brunch. I apologize if I forget anybody but, I extend our gratitude to Mr. Doak, Mr. Magtongab, Mr. Ramos, Mr. Mello, and Mr. Purzycki. These gentlemen have found the joy of volunteering and the friendships that form from this important time together. 

I encourage everyone, but especially the dads, to get involved. The stronger our community is the better educational experience you and your children will have here at Assumption.

Many Blessings,

Steven J. Santoli
