Volume:4  Issue: 3 September 16

Dear Assumption Family,

I invite all parents to one of our most important events of the year, Back to School Night is this Wednesday at 7 PM.  The night will begin with a meeting and presentation in the Parish Hall.  I will take the time to discuss our progress as a pilot school for the Personalized Learning Initiative.  You will learn about our new instructional methods and how this will allow all of our students to learn at their own pace and meet individual learning goals.

You will have the opportunity to explore some of our new equipment from the newly created Maker Space, and you will learn how each child will use and learn in this space.

There will also be information provided about the adaptive technology we will use to facilitate and personalize learning for all students. 

Following the presentation in the Parish Hall, all parents are invited to the school to tour the classrooms and meet your child's teachers. 

A Catholic school community is a partnership between the school and home. Our students succeed because they have the love and support from home and in the classroom. Attending this meeting is a great first step in strengthening this bond and setting your child up for a successful year at Assumption.

Many Blessings,

Steven J. Santoli
