Notes from the Principal

Greetings ALCS Family,


February has been dedicated to "goodness," the sixth Fruit of the Spirit. Each chapel Wednesday our pastors reiterated the importance of showing goodness in thoughts, words, and actions. I hope you had the opportunity to view Ascension's chapels via FaceBook. If not, I encourage you to check them out.


As we wrap up "goodness" let's try to display goodness and catch others in acts of goodness! Jesus, the perfecter of goodness, healed the sick, comforted the lonely, advocated for the marginalized and much more. By His examples of goodness, we are invited to do the same.



Peace & Blessings,


Mrs. Reeves

ALCS Head of School

Black History Month

This week concludes our tribute to influential African-Americans. However, we do hope that you will continue to learn more about how African-Americans have helped to shape the United States and the world.

Happy Birthday...

May God continue to richly bless you!

IREAD-3

All Indiana 3rd graders are required to complete the IREAD-3 assessment. The testing window is open from Monday, March 8-Friday, March 19. Remote students are required to take the IREAD-3 at school. Mrs. Reeves will be contacting the parents of our 3rd grade remote scholars to schedule a time to complete the IREAD-3 assessment.

Remote Scholars

Beginning Monday, March 15, Ascension's remote scholars will receive instruction from their Ascension teacher. This will be an exciting learning experience! Our Ascension teachers and scholars will connect and all of Ascension's scholars will learn and grow together.


More information will follow, including a day to test the system so that we provide seamless instruction on March 15!


If you are interested in enrolling your scholar for in-person learning, starting March 15, we can arrange that opportunity.


Please contact the office if you have questions.

Inclement Weather-Update

Now that Gary Community School Corporation (GCSC) has returned to in-person learning, ALCS will follow GCSC for school weather closures.


Please contact the office if you have questions.
