Catholic Schools Week is a celebration of Assumption School proclaiming our commitment to our 2017 theme:
Our philosophy is that Catholic Schools exist to cultivate in students a love for Jesus Christ, fidelity to His Church, and commitment to the dignity of the human person. We have confidence that our students will experience more complete development and unsurpassed academic and personal success. The reasons to believe Assumption School can deliver the promise of this success are:
• Catholic faith formation
• Nurturing community
• Reinforced family environment
• Rigorous academic curriculum

Celebrate Our School in Our Parish
Catholic schools benefit all year long from the religious guidance, prayers and support parishes provide. Many parishes join in the National Catholic Schools Week celebration by devoting a Mass to Catholic education. Schools start the week by inviting parishioners and community members to parish-centered events and school open houses that feature their outstanding academic programs, religious education and service opportunities.

A central aspect of Catholic education is learning the importance of service to others. When students take part in service activities—both local and beyond—they demonstrate the values and faith they gain through their Catholic education and learn how to make the world a better place. When they observe how others serve the community, they gain an appreciation for how they can continue to serve others their entire lives.

By focusing on faith, knowledge, and service, Catholic schools prepare children to use their God-given talents to the fullest later in life. National Catholic Schools Week offers an opportunity for students to explore the many life paths that enable them to use their talents well in the service of God and others — by answering the call to a religious vocation, by nurturing a family through sacramental marriage, by volunteering in church activities and charities, and/or by pursuing a career that makes the world a better place.

Parents, guardians, grandparents and other family members, play a vital role in Catholic education. They instill values and expectations for academic excellence in their children at home and beyond. We acknowledge the role of families in Catholic education and celebrate their contributions to the success of our schools.
