Parent Portal
All third through eighth grade parents should be viewing their child's grades regularly on the school's Rediker Parent Plus Portal. An email and link was sent to all families at the beginning of the school year. The portal serves as the vehicle of communication between you and the teacher. If you have a question about a score on an assessment, please ask your son or daughter about it first, then email the teacher. For those of you new to this system, progress reports are no longer sent to parents. If you are not able to access the school portal, please contact the school office for assistance at office@ascs.net.
Introducing the ASCS Grandparents Club
 
We are pleased to announce the formation of the All Saints Grandparents Club. Being a member means grandparents will receive letters every month or so with information on events, Masses, service projects, fundraisers, stories about what the students are doing and updates on what's happening at school. In addition, we let them know about the many opportunities to get involved and volunteer should they be interested. They are not obligated to do anything but will enjoy receiving our notes, photos and videos about all the great things going on at our school.If you'd like to join or know a grandparent who would like to join, please fill out this form or contact Mrs. D'Andrea with any questions.
