Assumption Home & School

Welcome to Assumption Home and School!

Assumption Home & School is a volunteer parent organization that aims to enhance the overall educational experience for students and staff. We also facilitate and/or support school fundraising efforts and coordinate many of the volunteer opportunities available at the school. (Similar in many ways to a traditional Parent-Teacher Association/PTA.)  We welcome your involvement and encourage your participation in Assumption Home & School!

 

 

News

Support Walla Walla Catholic Schools at the Fair!

Assumption Home & School, along with DeSales Home & School and the WWCS Booster Club, run 2 food booths at the Fair over Labor Day weekend.  Please help by volunteering for a shift and/or eating our delicious food!  

 

Events

  • We coordinate 2-3 entertaining/educational all-school assemblies each year. We implement the “Miles Club” lunch-hour run/walk program. We host a Scholastic Book Fair, and coordinate a Leaf-Clean Up Service Day in the Fall. We also represent our school with a float entry in the Walla Walla Fair & Frontier Days parade.
  • We provide an all-school “Back-to-School Lunch” and an-all school Thanksgiving Feast, as well as support Grandparents/Special Friends Day in November and the school’s “May Crowning” live rosary presentation each Spring.
  • We show appreciation to our faculty and staff by hosting a Christmas Lunch, celebrating birthdays, coordinating classroom/teacher “Christmas Wish Lists” and supporting “Teacher Appreciation Week” each Spring.
  • We also provided financial support for special projects to better our school. Past projects include updates to the gym, installing library bookshelves, subsidizing a new Hot Lunch Program, and purchasing materials and supplies for our teachers’ classrooms.
     

This Year's Special Project Goal

Every year, Assumption Home & School uses funds raised for a special project for the school.  The 2-year project for 2013-14 and 2014-15 is an electronic readerboard outside of our school.  Stay tuned for more details on this exciting project!  Plans for the 2015-16 Project are still in the works!
 

Fundraisers

To fund these projects and programs, we implement TWO major school-specific fundraisers each year;

  • We coordinate parent volunteers to staff two very popular Walla Walla Catholic School food booths at the Fair in August.
  • We implement an Assumption Home & School Raffle in Jan-Feb. 
  • We also encourage and assist in coordinating volunteers to support the larger Walla Walla Catholic Schools fundraisers: Sausage Fest in early October and The Hope Auction & Dinner event in the Spring.
