Come support Blessings in a Backpack and Ascension School by attending the breakfast!
For each backpack you bring in you will receive a chance to win a Super Nintendo or a Classic Nintendo.
You will also have a chance to win one of 5 Easy Money Sweepstakes tickets.

The book fair will be open Monday through Thursday and will also be open during conferences Wednesday and Thursday. Credit cards, debit cards, checks and cash are accepted! Online shopping is also available
Proceeds from the Book Fair are used to support our Library.
You are welcome to have lunch with your child/ren on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. Lunch meal tickets will be available in the school office for $4.00 per lunch (students do not need lunch tickets, they can order as usual and pay from their account).
We are doing this to help with food preparation as we have run out of food in the past because people show up without letting us know.
Of course, you are welcome to sit with your child at lunch and not eat – no ticket necessary.

The PTO has generously allocated $5.00 for every Ascension student K-Gr. 8 to purchase a book from the Book Fair. The 3’s and JK will receive $5.00 for the Spring Book Fair.
Volunteers are needed! If you are able to help, please email Barbara Wagner at

Our goal is to raise $2,000 in FREE money for our school! Neatly cut and collect unexpired box tops and send them into school on a collection sheet or in a Ziploc bag with your child’s name on it to the PTO mailbox located in the school office. Ask family, friends, and neighbors to save Box Tops for you! We will have two submission dates: October 15 and February 15. For each submission date, the class that brings in the most box tops will receive a popsicle party!
