Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord

In Sunday's Gospel reading, the disciples pay homage to the ascended Jesus. They worship a human being who entered a divine realm, who belonged there. They worshiped a human body that was changed and glorified, that ascended to sit at the right hand of the Father and is rightfully declared "Lord."

A further significance of the Ascension is that now that Jesus has departed, it is time for the Spirit to be sent to his people as his continuing presence among them. Next Sunday we will celebrate the great feast of Pentecost, when the disciples will be "clothed with power from on high" as Jesus promises in today's Gospel.

From The Principal

Dear Parents/Guardians,

All School Field Trip

Tomorrow, Thursday, the whole school will be traveling to St. Mary's Cathedral for a presentation on St. Francis and Junipero Serra. The day will be in the format of a Cinco de Mayo festival. Our school will be with two other schools from the Archdiocese for this special event.

We ask that all parents who drop children off in the morning leave the parking lot immediately after the morning assembly as we will have the buses come into the lower parking lot for students to board.

Teacher Appreciation Week

This week we celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week for all Catholic School Teachers across the country. To be a Catholic School Teacher is a ministry in education. Our teachers make many sacrifices, and we are very fortunate at All Souls to have a wonderful staff that support the children we serve. Congratulations teachers!!!!

Talent Show

I wish to congratulate all the children who participated in the Talent sShow. It is always wonderful to see the many talents that our children possess. Well done!!!!

Thanks to Miss Johanson for organizing the show this year.

Magic Dan - Magic Show

On Tuesday, our students from K - 4 were entertained by Magic Dan. Magic Dan has been coming to our school for several years and promotes a positive message about caring for each other.

Spring Musical - Wednesday May 18th

The spring musical will be on Wednesday, May 18th at 7pm in the Church. Students from all grades participate in the program. I do need to remind everyone about respect for the sacred space. Clapping is appropriate but no hooting or hollowing.


All monies for 8th grade parent accounts need to be settled by May 15th. Parents from grades K to 7 need to have their finances, including tuition, Scrip, and Fundraising Commitments settled by May 30th.

In the event finances are not settled, reports cards and year book is held by the school until all monies are paid.

Spring Holiday - Friday, May 6th: There will be no school on Friday, May 6th.

Minimun Day - Monday, May 16th: On Monday, May 16th there will be a minimum day and students will be dismissed at 12.20pm. There will be a nacho sale at 12.20 to support our preschool.
