ASCENSION SUMMER MATH CAMP
It’s free-of-charge and open to all Ascension students who will be entering Gr’s. 6, 7 & 8 in the fall.
For the 7th straight year it will be instructed by our in-house volunteer math tutor and teacher’s aide, Mr. John Amback.
There are no tests, quizzes, grades or homework!
Each grade level has 7 one-hour sessions that are designed to both review and preview the upcoming year. The sessions are on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the month of July beginning July 6 and ending July 27. Gr. 6 is from 8:30am-9:30am, Gr. 7 is from 9:30am-10:30am and Gr. 8 is from 10:30am-11:30am.
Knowing that July is filled with appointments, vacations, camps, etc., 100% attendance is not required. Just let Mr. Amback know if your student is going to miss more than one or two sessions.
Reserve your spot today!
If the answer to this invitation is yes or maybe, then contact Mr. Amback at ambak@live.com with your student’s name and 2021-2022 grade level.
This is a great way to touch base with your classmates, meet new friends, and improve your math skills!

BOX TOPS COLLECTION
Did you know that Ascension is a Box Tops school? During this challenging time, our teachers and students need more help than ever. No matter what school looks like, Box Tops for Education is a fast and easy way for you to help out from home.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS: Buy participating products and use the Box Tops mobile app to scan your store receipt. The app identifies eligible products and automatically adds Box Tops to your school’s earnings online. Even if you’re shopping online or doing grocery pickup, you can still submit your e-receipts and earn Box Tops. Twice a year, our school gets a check!

The PTO uses money earned from Box Tops to fund our iPad program and other classroom needs for our students!

Here’s how YOU can help earn money for our school!
• DOWNLOAD the Box Tops app and select our school to support. This ensures that your Box Tops purchases count toward our school’s earnings.
• SHOP for Box Tops products and use the app to scan your receipt to add to our school’s earnings online.
• LOOK for any remaining Box Tops clips on packages. If you find some, clip them and send them to school!
• SPREAD THE WORD about Box Tops!
FUN TIP: You can also use the “Invite Friends” feature in the app to ask friends and family to help support our school!

Your earnings may seem small, but they really do add up. The more people that participate, the bigger the impact we can make. So let’s give our teachers the support they need and help give more kids the opportunity to dream. Little by little, we can help make a BIG difference.
