IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO SIGN UP TO HELP WITH OUR SUMMER FESTIVAL
Ways to support Summer Festival are underway! Reminder, our two-day picnic full of family fun is Friday, June 2 and Saturday, June 3. Save the date and spread the word! Each night includes good food, live music, games and prizes, bouncies, gambling and raffles.

Speaking of raffles—help sell Capital Prize, Handmade Quilt and Pot of Gold tickets. If your student(s) sell(s) ALL raffle tickets, an out of uniform day and popsicle treat is scheduled for May 12! Please return ALL tickets (sold & unsold) by Thursday, May 4. Need more tickets? Contact the school or parish office.

The Raffle Booth is another opportunity to win amazing prizes. Follow the link to purchase pre-sale items:

Other ways to contribute:
• Donate to our 100% profit booths!
– Books, Games & More! needs your gently used books, games, puzzles, DVDs, CDs and video games
– Goodie Bag Booth needs new items with values up to $5 (think Dollar Store & Target’s deal section). Items for both kids and adults are appropriate.

• It’s no secret that picnic-goers travel far and wide to take a chance on a delicious dessert. Help fill our Cake Booth with countless tasty treats. Commit to a cake by baking or donating money towards the purchase of a cake ($7 increments). You’re just the ingredient we need! Stay tuned for TAKE & BAKE (cake pans and mixes will be available for the taking after Mass closer to Festival).

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.

REMINDER
Student’s who are absent should be phoned in or emailed to Ms. Thomas by 8:15am. There is a 24 hour message system for you to phone in absences, 451-2535 ext. 22.
Also, it is very important that your child/ren arrive at school on time daily! Students should be in their class and chair by 7:55am. If your child is late, you must come in to sign them in. Thank you!
