Rocket Report – Friday, December 17, 2021
This is the last Rocket Report of the semester. On behalf of the faculty and staff, we wish you all a blessed Christmas.
May your celebration of the birth of Jesus this season
Open you to the true joy and lasting peace of Christ.
May what began in a simple manger on that night so long ago
Continue in our hearts every day of the coming year.
HEALTHY AT SCHOOL: To keep our families informed of how COVID is affecting our school, we will continue reporting our COVID cases each week via the Rocket Report.
- Since the start of this school year, we have had 40 total COVID cases for this semester.
- This week (reporting since 12/10/2021- including today) there was one new COVID case – which is a student.
Mask Mandate: As we mentioned in our prior communication, AHS will also adopt a “buffer period” after Christmas break. There’s typically a spike in COVID cases after a holiday due to travel and visiting with family and friends. To help keep our school community as healthy as possible as we start our next semester, masks will be required the first week back of school which is January 4-8. As always, we are grateful to our parents and our students for their continued commitment and cooperation as we continue to navigate the many phases of this pandemic.
- CHRISTMAS BREAK: Assumption will be closed for Christmas Break from December 20 – January 3. Classes will resume on Tuesday, January 4.
- PARENT PRAYER: Parent Prayer will resume its weekly schedule on Tuesday, January 11, at 8:30 a.m. in the AHS chapel. All are welcome!
SECOND SEMESTER SCHEDULES: Hard copies of the second semester schedules will be given to students during homeroom on Tuesday, January 4. Students will have homeroom scheduled first on this day. Students will need to report to homeroom FIRST when they return to school. Students have already had the opportunity to meet with their deans with any scheduling questions. Drop/Add for second semester elective courses ends on Friday, January 14. Any elective schedule change request must be accompanied by a note from a parent and any necessary teacher signatures and recommendations.
SECOND SEMESTER BOOKS: Christmas break is a good time to check and make sure students have all of their second semester books. Please go to https://bnck-12.com/ahsrockets to review this list.
FIRST SEMESTER GRADE REPORTS: First semester grade reports will be emailed to parents on Tuesday, January 4.
UNIFORM UPKEEP: We have asked the girls to take care of any uniform issues over Christmas break. Skirts have started to get shorter and hems are falling. Also, please make sure your daughter has the official AHS uniform sweater or quarter-zip sweatshirt to wear over her uniform shirt in these colder months. Additionally, black leggings or tights are allowed to be worn, so those might make great Christmas gifts for your daughter. Please assist your daughter in evaluating her current uniform status and take care of any uniform upkeep so that we can start off second semester as well as we did first semester. We sincerely appreciate your help and cooperation!
FINANCIAL AID FORM: The financial aid link for 2022-2023 has been added to the school’s website. The due date is January 31, 2022, and the form must be submitted online to FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment. FINANCIAL AID APPLICATION LINK. As a reminder, you are required to file every year to receive assistance.
