For each backpack you bring in you will receive a chance to win a Super Nintendo or a Classic Nintendo.

BOOK FAIR – OCT. 1 THROUGH OCT. 4
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 http://www.scholastic.com/bf/ascensionsch1.
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 bwagner@ascension-parish.com
