Take a neighborhood walk
Manchester - posted Jul, 31 2013
MANCHESTER - On Saturday, Aug. 10, students and families from Assumption School will walk through Manchester neighborhoods in an effort to reach out to community residents. Organizers hope to raise awareness of the outstanding educational opportunities offered at the school. While not every classroom has vacancies, the school would like to add an average of two to three students in each grade for the 2013-2014 school year. This year, no student will be turned away for financial reasons. Walking around neighborhoods might seem like an old fashioned approach but the school that prides itself in traditional values is definitely not old-fashioned. Last year the school obtained and implemented Chromebook computers for middle school students and established a student run technology club. The school is committed to ongoing innovation and capitalizes on leading edge technologies to enhance student achievement in every grade. Students, teachers, siblings, parents and grandparents will walk or ride in strollers or on scooters and distribute brochures and share information about Assumption School. Following their walk, participants will meet at the school’s main campus for a picnic. Assumption School serves students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade at two locations in Manchester. The main campus is located at 27 South Adams St.; the high school prep campus, which serves students in sixth through eighth grade, is located at 45 Ludlow Road. The school is fully accredited and features an innovative curriculum in an inclusive environment, where excellent educators are committed to enabling children to meet his or her potential for success.
