It is hard to believe how quickly the school year haspassed and come to an end. I would like to thank you for your faith, trust, and commitment to the mission of Assumption Catholic School. It is your belief in the Catholic education values that help us to sustain our school. We respect the sacrifices each family makes to send their child to Assumption, and we will continue to put your child first in everything we do! This was a very busy year and you, as partners in education, played a great role in making it a success!
Although it is a hectic time of year, it is the time when I most realize how blessed we all are to be part of the ministry of Assumption. Parents and teachers commit their time and energy every day toward creating a nurturing environment in which children can thrive! We wish our eighth grade students all the best as they journey on to new places. Eighth grade graduation is a time for celebration and reflection on the impact faith-based education has made on each student, and parents proudly see their child as an Assumption Graduate:
In closing, I take this opportunity to congratulate all students of Assumption Catholic School. I wish you all a very happy, safe and enjoyable summer. Please be sure to take time as a family to talk, play, and pray together. The Assumption community has been my home this year and I will miss you. As I pray for your future, please offer a prayer for me as I begin a new chapter in my retirement life.
In Christ’s peace,
Rosemary Nowotny, Principal
Assumption Catholic School is centrally located near downtown Jacksonville and adjoining to Bishop Kenny Catholic High School’s campus. Founded in 1923, Assumption is a thriving school with over 600 students in preschool through 8th grade. Assumption’s curriculum stresses academic achievement within a Christian community where children feel loved and respected by their peers as well as their teachers. United with each other in meaningful liturgy and prayer, the students can further come to an understanding of the Christian life.
The curriculum is marked by current content and fresh approaches to methodology. There is emphasis on principles rather than fact, on learning through problem solving rather than by precept. We offer our students an array of reading, research, multimedia resources, and technology options so that they may succeed in the rapidly changing world.
In addition to these formal studies, Spanish, art, drama, music, media research and technology, and physical education are woven into the curriculum. Students are also given the opportunity to participate in team sports such as basketball, soccer, volleyball, cheerleading, softball and cross country. Together, with the Assumption families, we strive to build the student’s character and Christian values, leadership abilities, and dedication to service through daily religious prayer and instruction by teachers, priests and sisters.
