Easter Eggstravaganza

ASCS students serve cotton candy and help with children's games at the St. Paul's Baptist Eggstravaganza, a community-wide event sponsored by the church annually. Thanks to the our families who attend the church, All Saints appreciates an on-going relationship with St. Paul's Baptist!

 

 

Valentines for Military Personnel

In addition to adopting our friend's, Robert McKenna's, National Guard squadron stationed in Qatar, All Saints students are also sending messages of support to our middle school teacher's, Carmen Murph's, daughter who is serving abroad in the Navy. Mansfield Murph and Robert McKenna recently sent messages back to our students after receiving Valentine cards created by All Saints Mass Buddies.

Three All Saints Teachers take the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics!

Mr. Wilde (Middle School Science), Miss Porter (2nd grade) and Miss Beale (Technology) inspired All Saints students to raise money for Richmond Special Olympics by holding a contest to see which of them could collect the most money for the cause. Combined the teachers inspired students to donate $933! Miss Porter led the way with over $400 raised.

Christmas Cards for a National Guard Troop


All Saints student sent Christmas cards to a National Guard squadron stationed in Qatar.  Robert McKenna, who is assigned to this squadron, along with his family are friends of the All Saints family.  Our students wanted to brighten the holidays for Robert and his troop as they are away from their families serving our country.

 

Helping the Ronald McDonald House

8th graders lead All Saints families in collecting pop tops to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House.  The class also cooked breakfast on a Saturday morning for the residents at the house.

Housing Families

An ASCS 4th grader presented 70 stuffed backpacks from ASCS to Housing Families First (HFF) Operations Manager Terri Iguina.  The backpacks were filled with books, stuffed animals, and blankets.  Items were donated by ASCS families and our Student Government did the packing.  HFF houses homeless families and connects them with housing and other services. 

 

Sock it to Poverty  

October is World Mission month in the Catholic Church.

The 2015 theme, 'I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink', focused on the work of Sister Rose Rasoavololona in providing physical water and spiritual support to the children of Madagascar—a country where access to clean water and proper sanitation is scarce, and sadly results in thousands of children dying from preventable diseases each and every year.  

All Saints Children filled socks with monetary donations to contribute to this worthy campaign against poverty.

 

 

Campaign for the Hungry

In the month of November, students show their thankfulness for God’s many blessings by collecting cans of food and non-perishable food items for the St. Paul’s Catholic Church Food Bank! Several All Saints students in a local girl scout troop led the charge in the 2015 campaign. 

 

Coats for Kids


All Saints partnered with Puritan Cleaners this November to collect coats for children (and adults) in need of keeping warm this winter.  Puritan cleans and repairs the donated coats before they are distributed.  All Saints collected over 50 coats!

Walking for Breast Cancer Awareness

Middle School Students lead the charge during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October to encourage their schoolmates to give to breast cancer research. Pink Ribbons line the front hallway in recognition of our gifts.  Students also showed support participating in Strides for Breast Cancer, an annual walk held here in Richmond.
