Dear Assumption Family,

I am privileged and humbled to announce that I am being  honored on July 12 at the New Haven Lawn Club by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for my leadership in the community and excellence in my field of education.   At this event 20 other professionals will be honored alongside me from throughout New Haven and Fairfield counties.  As you may know, my wife Rebecca works for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in CT and previously in NY.  Our family is dedicated to finding a cure for this disease and I am very honored they are recognizing me.

With this honor, I have committed to raising a minimum of $1500 to help the foundation reach its mission of controlling and curing cystic fibrosis.

On Wednesday, May 9, CFF will host a Jeans for Genes Day at Assumption Catholic School to help reach the $1500 fundraising goal.  All students and staff are asked to make a donation of at least $1 for the privilege to wear jeans (or any other dress down clothes)  to school on Wednesday.  As a special incentive, any student or staff member that donates $5 or more, will receive a CFF t-shirt.  

I hope that you will participate in this worthy coause and help find a cure for patients like Mattia, pictured above.  To donate directly to the cuase visit my fundraising page at my fundraising page  .

Many Blessings,

Steven J. Santoli

New Uniform Now Available
New Design and Uniform  Supplier for 2018-19 School Year

The official school uniform for Assumption Catholic School will change effective at the start of the 2018-19 school year. Along with the change, a new exclusive provider has been selected. Blake's Uniform in Stratford will be our uniform provider effective immediately. 

The school uniform has been redesigned to include our updated logo and incorporate the color blue to honor our Blessed Mother Mary. Affordability, comfort, and simplicity were guiding principles in the redesign.   

Blake's Uniform is a locally owned and operated business with a convenient location, unparalleled customer service, and a simple to use online ordering system.  Unlike the previous supplier, Blake's has a large variety of items on hand and applies logos while you wait. This means that there should be no shortage or backorder issues on high demand items.

Samples of the uniforms are on display in the main lobby of the school and pictures are included below. Also find attached a spreadsheet outlining the new uniform code and requirements.  

Students are invited to wear the current uniform through the end of this year. Our current supplier will not be able to meet the need for warm weather uniforms this Spring.  On April 16, when we arrive back to school after Spring Break students are invited to wear the updated uniforms supplied by Blake's should they choose.
