The Advocate: Twice as nice? That was the story as Ashley Gill and Sophie Sierveld each won two events to help Ascension Episcopal finish as the Division IV runners-up at the Allstate Sugar Bowl/LHSAA State Swim meet.The two juniors set the tone for a young Blue Gators team from the start of the meet held Thursday at the SPAR Aquatic Center.
The Acadiana Advocate: Elect to recycle! Election day is Saturday, November 16th so how do you get rid of all of those campaign signs after an election? Ascension Episcopal School 6th grader has worked out a solution.Tre Bishop, the son of State Representative Stuart Bishop, is launching a pilot program to get all those campaign signs recycled and out of landfills. “The idea hit me when I was putting out campaign yard signs for my dad’s campaign. I thought where do all these signs go? So, I researched and I found out the signs go into landfills because only five states can recycle corrugated plastic,” Tre Bishop. If you drive anywhere across the state right now, you are going to encounter plenty of political signs. Since you CANNOT recycle campaign signs in your own recycle bins at home, there are now drop off locations to recycle unwanted campaign yard signs – corrugated plastic plus the metal stands. Drop off will end on November 25th.Drop Off Locations:• 400 Dugas Road, Lafayette• All three Ascension Episcopal School campuses – outside near student drop-off• All seven Baldwin Redi-Mix locationsIn local partnership with Republic Services, the Environmental Quality Division of Lafayette Consolidated Government and LA Scrap Metal, the signs and metal stakes will be recycled. Republic Services is generously covering all roll off costs.Tre Bishop, in partnership with his dad, Representative Stuart Bishop looks forward to having legislation passed for campaign sign recycling and to have something special such as playground equipment or park benches made from the recycled material.“My dad taught me since I was a young kid to go out and change the world every day and I thought that this is one way to change the world for my children and everyone else’s children,” Tre Bishop.Please note: This program does not seek to take campaign sign clean up responsibilities away from prospective candidates. Instead, this program hopes to connect candidates and residents with drop off points so that signs can be recycled instead of thrown in the trash.For more information on the recycling program, contact 337.315.1661 firstname.lastname@example.org
For the fourth consecutive time since 2011, Ascension was recently recognized as an Apple Distinguished School. We are currently one of only three schools in the state of Louisiana to achieve this honor!On November 12, our amazing Tech Team, along with the help of many Blue Gator students, faculty, and staff, hosted an Apple Showcase to share our one-to-one program and how it engages students at all levels. Guests included Apple representatives, leaders & educators from other schools, and preservice teachers from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Visitors learned how our technology infrastructure supports innovation in learning and teaching, heard from members of our school community, and toured classrooms to discover opportunities that mobile learning provides. It was a phenomenal day!THANK YOU to all who helped make it happen, especially our hardworking Tech Team.
