Principal’s Corner

Dear ASCE Families,

We are looking forward to celebrating our wonderful teachers this upcoming week. National Teacher’s Appreciation Week is Monday, May 8 through Friday, May 12. This is an opportunity for ASC to celebrate our amazing staff. Our teachers bear witness to Christ and Christian values to partner with parents to help develop each student in their growth as a disciple of Jesus. Our Home and School has a wonderful week planned for our teachers, full of treats, lunch, and a special gift. Happy Teacher Appreciation Week to our terrific staff! Also, Happy Teacher Appreciation Week to all of our parents who are teachers!

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, May 5, we will introduce Respect.
Respect is speaking and acting to our own and other’s rights, status, and circumstances. Respect looks like not laughing at others, only saying nice things about others, and listening to others.

Dear Jesus, Help me to show reverence to people who are in authority over me as I would to You. And help me give all persons the honor they deserve as Your unique creations. Amen.

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.
