Promise | 4th Grade at Ascension

Promise’s favorite subject that she studies at Ascension is math.

“You can use facts that you already know to learn new stuff,” she says.

But, like a lot of students at Ascension, she has multiple subjects that she’s excited about.

“Sometimes I just make up random stories. Like in third grade I made up a story called The Scary School Bus. It’s a long, long, long, long paragraph. I like to read chapter books. We’re reading one right now, it’s called “Mister Popper’s Penguins.” When you’re reading a chapter book you can imagine in your head and you can predict what’s going on next. ”

Promise’s wide range of interests can be attributed to a synergy between Ascension, her NAZ coach Tamera, and NAZ afterschool programs. She’s not sure what high school will bring, but she’s already thinking about her college plans. When she grows up Promise says she’d like to be a teacher at Ascension Catholic School.

“I want to be a second-grade teacher or a third-grade teacher. I want to teach kids about reading and math.”
