Student Council Elections – The election process is under way for next year’s Student Council for 2019 - 2020. The campaign days will be this Wednesday and Thursday, May 29 & 30 with speeches and voting on Friday, May 31.

FULL PAYMENT TUITION OPTION - Interested in paying the 2019-2020 tuition in full? There is a discount for families who wish to pay full year’s tuition up front. Any family who pays the 2019-2020 tuition in full will receive a $100 per child discount, and the Smart Tuition fee of $50 will be waived. If you wish to take advantage of this option, please let Gina in our office know by June 1.


USED UNIFORM SALE IS COMING: On Thursday and Friday, June 6 and 7 we will host our annual Used Uniform Sale in the Mulcahy Center. Parents bring their children’s clean uniform items with payment envelopes and prices attached. The hall is open for parents to shop all day both school days, and after school. This is a no-host sale, not a school office sale. Please plan ahead and bring small bills, as our office will not make change! It’s a chance to get great deals on uniform items. Dennis and ProForma Uniform do NOT do on-site sales in Ventura during the summer. New items may be purchased online or in their stores. The last week of school, June 10 - 13, will be Non-uniform Dress days for all students.

Registration will be available in early May through the Parish website. Youth and adult volunteers needed! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to teach children what faith is and how to put their faith in God! We are looking for individuals of all ages, including middle school and high school students, who may be available to share their gifts in support of this year’s VBC! We need you! Interested?

ATTENTION NEXT YEAR’S 7TH GRADERS AND PARENTS: Proof of a Tdap booster is required for your child by the first day of school in August. If you have already completed this requirement, please bring in the paperwork now. Whooping cough, also known as Pertussis, continues to threaten students in California. To help stop the spread, California state law requires all incoming 7th graders IN ALL SCHOOLS to show proof of whooping cough booster (Tdap) shot. Students will not be allowed to attend without an updated shot record indicating this immunization. As of January 1, 2016, a personal beliefs exemption is no longer an option for vaccines currently required for entry into school in California. In addition, all immunization requirements for age and grade need to be met prior to the student entering 7th grade. Mrs. Baloyo sent home a flyer about this a few months ago. If you have any questions, please contact our office.


SUMMER CONSTRUCTION AT OLA – The long-awaited school reroofing project will happen this summer. The roof will be replaced on the school buildings and a new skylight installed. Plans call for demolition to start on June 17. The school office will be closed during demo and part of construction, so all business with the school should be done before June 17, or a message left with the church office. The work will be completed in August.


APA BOARD –The Assumption Parent Association Board is a fund-raising and classroom support group that meets monthly and assists with classroom projects and all school activities. It’s a great way to get involved with school and earn ALL your parent hours. If you are interested, please join us for our first meeting on September 4 and see if you would like to join us! The school calendar includes all the meeting dates and times.


LAST DAY FOR A.R. TESTING – Please note that THIS Friday, May 31 will be the FINAL DAY for students to take AR tests.


KARMA DAY - The room parents from all grades will once again present Karma Day on Wednesday, June 12 from 11:30– 2:30pm.  If you would like to help with a game or activity, please volunteer. Any parent hours worked will count toward next year, so you can get a kick start on 2019 - 2020! If you can help, please contact Jen Colitti at or (805)407-2335.
