April 28, 2023 – Elementary Newsletter

Principal’s Corner

Dear ASCE Families,

We are well into our Spring session of NWEA, and we are looking forward to seeing everyone’s growth! We will communicate with all families about their child’s growth after testing concludes May 19.

This Thursday we will have our May Crowning. We invite all students to bring a flower to crown the statue of our Blessed Mother here at school. On May 4, we will celebrate mass beginning at 8:30am. After mass students will walk in a procession back to school with their flowers. Each student will have the opportunity to present their flowers to the statue of our Blessed Mother.

We are looking forward to celebrating our teachers during Teacher Appreciation week, which will be Monday, May 8—Friday, May 12. We are so happy to be blessed with a wonderful staff here at All Saints and it will be an honor to recognize all of them during Teacher Appreciation week!

Many Blessings,
Mrs. Rhodus


Lord Jesus, You are the way, the truth, and the life. Keep our faith strong, so that our hearts may never be troubled. 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 Prayerfulness.
Prayerfulness is being still, listening, and being willing to talk to God as a friend such as making the Sign of the Cross slowly and deliberately and talking to God as a friend.

Dear Jesus, I desire to have You as my friend, Give me a desire to spend time with You each day, as I do with my friends. Help me to always put You first in my life, even when I am busy. Amen.

Loons Fundraiser

Join us for our first annual All Saints Catholic End of the Year Loons Game on May 7th!! This fundraiser is being put on by our Home and School committee, and we are planning on this being our “end of year celebration”. The Home and School committee will earn $3.00 for each ticket sold towards the fundraiser. Tickets will be sent to your email or you can present the receipt upon entrance. 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.
