Junior Boys Basketball Team Plays Well at Riverside Tournament

The Junior Boys had a successful tournament this past weekend at Riverside. After a first round victory with a score of 62-29 the Raiders found themselves as the only Tier Two team  on the winner's side of the tournament. This put us in the difficult position of playing teams with much larger school populations, but the team competed for the most part even though we were unable to secure another victory. In our final game we rallied but came up short 54-45 against Kennedy. Every player dressed was able to see action in each game and we hope the experience received on the weekend will help us when we return to regular season action Tuesday at home against first-place Kingsville at 4:00. The coaches and the team would like to give special thanks to Ms. Groves for not only giving up a good portion of her weekend to be our teacher-sponsor but for also purchasing snacks for the team. This is what true RAIDER spirit is about

Business students win another competition!

Students from the BMX3E marketing class competed in the YouthX Entrepreneurship Competition last week at the Odette School of business.  After running their own micro-business for 8 weeks, the top 11 groups from around Essex County were invited to present their enterprises to a panel of judges.  

Round 1 presentations were in three separate rooms, and the top 2 groups from each moved on to the final round.  Both Assumption groups won their preliminary round and advanced to the finals.

After the final presentation, 3 Axis Printing from Assumption was named the top group overall and won a $700 investment to help them grow their 3D printing business.  The other Assumption group ended up in 4th place.  It was an ourstanding event overall, and several of the judges (including local entrepreneurs, lawyers, professors and bankers) shared their business cards with the Assumption students hoping to foster long term connections with them in the business community.

Congratulations to Enzo Campa, Dan Burns and Jacob Schwab on their victory!

Please take a moment to watch this video:     - it was compiled during the first 4 hours of the event and shows what our business competitions look like

Holocaust Guest Speaker

Last Thursday on December 4th, one of our students Alex K.L. invited the Grade 10 IB and Grade 11 World religions classes to come and dialogue with Magda and her husband about their experiences of the Holocaust. Magda shared her story about being in Hungary during the Nazi occupation, and how she was victim to anti-semitism,discrimination and bullying. Her story brought tears to many students, and all promised they would never forget about the atrocities suffered. She asked students never to support those who are holocaust deniers,but to always stand up for truth and justice.
Thank you once again Mrs. Sauro
