Pumpkin Run Coming on October 15
Mark your calendars for the Pumpkin Run on October 15th! Last year’s Pumpkin Run raised just over $7500 for our school and gave our students a fun afternoon filled with fresh air, exercise and fun! This year funds will be used to support field trips, assemblies and other events and services the PTO provides to all of our students.
We’ll kick off the pledge collection with a pep rally on October 2nd and will distribute forms to students that will allow them to collect donations and pledges as well as provide the link if people choose to donate online. We will also be looking for volunteers to donate snacks and to work the event so keep your eye out for the sign-up. More information to follow in Wednesday Folders and the Buzz!
Respect, Responsibility and Success
Saint Ambrose School is a small school with a big heart. The faith-based education offers a nurturing and challenging academic environment for children in kindergarten through eighth grades. The diverse student body is represented by children from five of the seven continents. Students are welcomed from different ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. The shared vision of the Catholic faith promotes unity and appreciation for each person’s unique gifts, encouraging understanding and cooperation within the student body. Weekly Mass, daily prayers, and a shared culture of faith build a true community.
Service to Others
St. Ambrose teaches service as a natural part of school life. The students take leadership in organizing and carrying out service projects such as a Thanksgiving food drive, Christmas toy collection, a penny drive for a school in Haiti, preparation of care packages for military men and women in Afghanistan and Iraq, and a baby shower for young mothers in need. These projects instill in the students a sense of mission and concern for others. For eight years, the Crochet USA Club has met weekly and crocheted over 50 blankets for wounded soldiers.Older students are paired with a “buddy” in a younger class and participate in activities with them. Through these activities, students learn to serve as an active member of the community, and thus grow in faith and maturity. Our graduates continue this spirit of service in high school and college
A Day in the Life . . .
Our safety patrols greet students each morning as they arrive for school. Students proceed to their classrooms to organize their materials for the day. After morning announcements, students hear a selection from the children’s lectionary and join in traditional Catholic prayers… (read more)
When we think back to the “good old days”, we dream of a time when everyone knew each other, and people truly cared about one another. That special spark is what makes our school so precious. In a school with 200 students, teachers have an opportunity to really get to know their students. Families develop bonds and a strong community is born!
