Assumption Home & School

Welcome to Assumption Home and School!
We would love to hear from you! Please email us at homeandschool@thewwcs.com

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!

This Year's Special Project Goal

Every year, Assumption Home & School uses funds raised for a special project for the school. Our current project is "Safety in the School" with a new P.A. and Bell system. Funds from our Raffle fundraiser will cover the entire cost of this major safety improvement to our school.  Our goal is to continue to add to the safety of our school by installing security cameras in the future.
 

Fundraisers

To fund these projects and programs, we support 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 utilize Signup.com – an online volunteer management program for most of our projects. We will post links on this page with coordinating volunteer opportunities, as sign-ups open for each.
