The Harlem Wizards return to All Saints on January 30 at 6:30 PM.   Faculty and students will play on the court with the Wizards.  Souvenirs and food will be available too! It's a great show. The students enjoyed the short assembly last week. They'll love the show itself.  Don't miss it! Reminder, tickets purchased at the door will be $7 more than tickets purchased in advance. Don't wait! 

Volunteers Needed For Wizards
Want to volunteer but it's difficult to find the time? This is a great chance to give a little time to your school, meet other parents and have fun! Join us to volunteer at this event. If you can volunteer at the Harlem Wizards game, please click here to sign-up. 

Did you know? Studies show that students with involved parents earn higher grades and test scores, have better social skills, and show improved behavior. So, come and join us as a volunteer, your child will benefit and so will you! 
Report Cards
Report cards will be distributed on January 31 to all those students whose parents are up to date with tuition and extended day program payments. Please contact the school bookkeeper, Mrs Stapleton (Mrs.stapleton@ascs.net),  to check if you have any outstanding balances.  If you have a balance and are unable to bring your account current, please inform your child that he/she will not be receiving a report card.
