Ascension does this cool thing called Girl Power Day for 8th graders. Professional makeup artists give them hair cuts, do their faces, and people teach what to expect in high school -- what to do with bullying and stuff. They get a special lunch and school photos. Kids beg to attend but must have good grades or they can't. My daughter brought her grades up just to be able to go.
This school has really gone downhill. From teachers quitting a week before school starts to no rules or regulations when picking up your children to the incompetent new principal. All this school main concern is that you sell sell sell or pay up what is due! No field trips no real one one with children as it should be for the money you are paying!!! Horrible horrible school!!!
