History

The children of HNJ parish attended Ascension School, which opened in September 1961, staffed by the Irish Sisters of Mercy, from Ardee, Ireland.

In March, 1964, the new school began with approximately 50 students attending classes in the church hall.

By September 1964, the school building was completed and housed the first four grades that school year. Each year an additional grade was added through the eighth grade. In 1965 portable buildings were added and in 1968 a kindergarten class was opened.

The HNJ School Board’s five-year plan, which included five new classrooms, was completed in time for the 1998-99 school year.
