A chess tournament was held Saturday, April 22, 2017, at BrainSurge in Alexandria, LA. The tournament not only drew students from local schools but from J.S. Leadership Academy in Opelousas and Ascension Episcopal School in Lafayette. Adults also participated in the tournament. Thomas Harmeyer, owner of BrainSurge, said tournaments like this are part of an effort to engage academically-inclined students.
Two Ascension students, Luke LeBlanc and Elliott Lynd, placed first and second in the Middle School division. Taylor Ducote, Sugar Mill Pond Campus faculty member and Chess Club sponsor, was a semi-finalist at the event. Way to go, Blue Gators!
For the first time ever, our Ascension Episcopal School Parent Support Organizations came together for a joint fundraiser as they competed to be named Blue Gator Boogie CHAMPIONS! Each organization - PTO, Booster Club, and Fine Arts Alliance - performed three acts on Friday, March 17, to win votes.
Congratulations to all our performers, choreographers, and volunteers for an incredibly fun, entertaining, and successful event!
Thirty Sugar Mill Pond Campus students, teachers, and parents joined together over Mardi Gras break for our annual SMP Service Trip. This year the destination was San Carlos, Costa Rica.
We spent the week painting and renovating a local mission center, spending time with the elderly, feeding and loving women and children in a poor community, and gathering in fellowship and praise. Our time there was indescribably impactful. Many students said this week was "transformative" and "the best week of my life."
It was truly incredible to see members of our Ascension SMP community banding together to love the less fortunate in the name of Christ. I believe that those we came in contact with had a bigger impact on us than we did on them. This trip has become a mainstay of our campus and we look forward to continuing it annually.
Our new welcome video gives an introduction to who we are, a glimpse of our halls filled with the leaders, developers, and creators of tomorrow fueled with enthusiasm and a thirst for innovation. Our students are tailoring their future though our emphasis on 21st century learning.
