Saints Speak from Mrs. Marshall - 1/13/2022 - Martin Luther King Jr Day of Service
This coming Monday, January 17th, is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. At All Saints, this isn’t just a day off school. It is a day to honor Dr. King’s life and legacy through an act of service. All students are asked to some form of service this weekend or on Monday. While no act is too small if it helps another person, please encourage your child to go above and beyond their daily responsibilities.
There are school-sponsored opportunities to serve at Feed My Starving Children or make cards For St. Elizabeth Seton’s card-making ministry, or you can choose your own act of service. After completing their act of service, students should do this reflection form (hard copies were distributed by homeroom teachers) and turn it in to their teacher by Friday, 1/21. Thank you for joining with the ASCA community to serve others in honor of this important holiday!
I mentioned last week that we are looking ahead to Catholic Schools Week at the end of the month. Our week kicks off with Open House on Sunday, January 30th, from 1-3pm. To prevent overcrowding and follow our COVID protocols, this year’s Open House is focused on prospective families who are interested in enrolling new students for the 2022-2023 school year.
If you have a friend, relative, or neighbor with a child entering 3-year-old preschool through 8th grade, encourage them to attend the Open House and learn more about All Saints! They can visit our website to sign up for a personalized tour. If you share our Open House ad on social media or refer someone to the Open House, your child(ren) will get a special Out of Uniform pass! Thanks for helping our school community grow!
We are less than 60 days away from the biggest party of the year – the All Saints Dinner Dance Auction (DDA) ! As we get ready for the event, there are a few things you can do NOW!

Use the new year to start a new tradition - pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet! Every weekday starting at 3:00 in the afternoon and going for about a half-hour, The Drew Mariani Show on Relevant Radio (930 & 950 AM) prays the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. Many of you are either driving to or waiting outside the school building in your cars for your children at this time. It has been suggested by another parent that All Saints’ parents join in listening and praying together during the half-hour that you’re waiting for your children. It’s a good time to join as a community to pray for our school (children, teachers, staff), our four supporting parishes, our community, our nation, our world and one another's never ending needs.
Many blessings and even miracles have been reported by listeners as a result of their prayer requests, - so why not make good use of your drive time and your time in line by joining together to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet daily! For more info on Divine Mercy - go to www.relevantradio.com & click on the Divine Mercy LINK or tune into Relevant Radio (930AM or 950AM) today at 3:00!
Last weekend, a group of 7th and 8th grade students participated in the St. Francis High School Math Contest. All Saints won 1st place overall, and Team A also won 1st place in the 5-person Team Contest! Congrats as well to these individuals who won awards on the 7th grade contest: Alex Wold (2nd place), Sydney Dieter (4th place), Katie Deckard (8th place), William Shields (10th place). Congrats to 8th graders Gavin Freeston (2nd place) and Paige Maurer (10th place) for their individual awards as well. Way to go, Saints!
Lastly, I’d like to recognize the students who earned Saintly Acts this week: Ivana K (7th grade), Evan B. (4th grade), Krystian M. (4th grade), Jenna J. (7th grade), Lucas J. (6th grade), Jencarlo (6th grade), Will G. (2nd grade), and Anthony H. (2nd grade). Keep being Saintly!
