Principal’s Corner

Dear ASCE Families,

We had a wonderful Fun Fair last Friday. Thank you to our Home and School for putting together this amazing event! We also appreciate all the families who help to work the door/games/prize table as well as donated items for both prizes and cake walk.

Thank you to Ms. Chris for popping the popcorn. We truly appreciate all the help!

We are very happy to have received the t-shirts from Home and School and love the design that Nellie Cathcart, Peyton Douglas, Haley Neeb, and Grace Wetters created!

Our volleyball teams wrapped up their season last Tuesday, a very big thank you Ms. Taylor, Lili Costilla, Frances Courtmanche, Priscilla Cruz, and Eleanor Warren.

We started NWEA testing this week and are looking forward to seeing the great growth our students have made this school year.
Please make sure your child(ren) get a great night’s sleep and a good breakfast so they are prepared for the day! Thank you!

Many Blessings,
Mrs. Rhodus


We remember Lord Jesus, that when we welcome others in Your name, we welcome You. Help us to open our hearts, minds, and homes to the needs of others, so your community of believers may grow here on earth. Who live and reign with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Virtue of the Week

On Monday, April 24, we will introduce Responsibility.
Fulfilling our duties; accepting the consequences of one’s words and actions, intentional and unintentional. Responsibilities look like keeping your room clean, helping to take care of your pets, taking homework home and completing your homework.

Dear Jesus, Please help me to be faithful in all the duties You have entrusted to me this day, fulfilling each with great care and love!

Book Fair

The last book fair of the school year begins Monday, April 24 and ends Friday, April 28. The book fair will be open for families to browse after school on Wednesday and Thursday until 3:30pm. Students will browse the book fair with their class and will then bring home a book fair “wish list”. There is no obligation to purchase anything. This is simply a list of their favorite items. If you wish to purchase any items, be sure it is clear on the form, the total is added (including tax), and the correct payment is sent in. The orders will be filled, then given to the students.

These funds will be used towards activities next year such as the STEM bus, Science Day with the Ann Arbor Hands on Museum, Fun Fair, Teacher Appreciation Week, Field Day, various field trips and classroom activities, etc. Seating will be located in the lawn section. Bring your chairs/blankets, and plan on having a great time while spending time together as the All Saints Family. Wear All Saints spirit if you wish! Kids eat free at the games on Sundays. There is a softball/baseball clinic before the game from 10:00am– 12:00pm. Which is free with the purchase of a ticket. (Ages 5-12). We look forward to seeing you there! See attached flyer.

All Saints Catholic Elementary School Mission Statement

All Saints Catholic nurtures academic and personal excellence in all students while emphasizing Catholic values and service to others in Christ’s name.

Parish Info and Mass Opportunities

With the decline of young families attending church and with so much evil and hate in this world today, we need God now more than ever. It is our responsibility as Catholics to go to church weekly. By doing so, we set good examples for our children and do our part to lead them in the direction of Christ our Savior. Attending church as a family is so important and rewarding. It helps to create a special bond between you and God and between your family members. Children need to know and understand the importance of going to church consistently and having a relationship with God. There are many Mass options to accommodate busy lifestyles. So please take a little time out of your busy lives each week to grow closer to God and to enjoy Mass as a family.
