GREEN RIBBON ANNOUNCEMENT
It is with great pride that we would like to announce Ascension has been named a 2022 National Green Ribbon School. We are one of only two schools in the state of Kentucky to receive this award. The National Green Ribbon Schools demonstrate sustainability practices that:
1. reduce environmental impact and costs;
2. improve the health and wellness of schools, students, and staff; and
3. provide effective environmental and sustainability education
Ascension School began thinking about ways to improve our environmental impact after Pope Francis published the encyclical “Laudato si”. Basically, we need to take care of our planet. After doing many things to propel us in this direction (water bottle refill stations, zero-waste cafeteria, recycling, composting, butterfly garden, vegetable garden, etc.) we decided to apply for the National Green Ribbon. We are so excited to have received it! We hope it inspires others to improve sustainability practices and take care of our Earth.

CAPITOL PRIZE & QUILT TICKETS
Please remember! Student’s will earn Out of Uniform the week of May 9th if they sell all of their Capital Prize & Quilt Raffle chances and complete the Cake Order Form agreeing to bake or donate a cake! They must be returned to the school office by May 4th! Please remember this is per school family and not per student. Thank you for your support of our 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.
