April Knight began in 1987 as a time to gather and celebrate our school. It represents Assumption’s largest fundraiser and supports all areas of the school including academics, athletics, and fine arts. This festive and very fun evening, which includes fantastic food, open bar, live music, dancing, live and silent auctions and the grand prize raffle drawing, is held in the creatively transformed gym at Assumption. Many hands contribute to the great success of April Knight and we have a place for you, whatever your talent! Help make the evening a success by selling raffle tickets, procuring auction items, decorating, helping during the auction, putting your computer skills to work, assisting with check-in, check-out, set-up, or clean-up.

Backstage Angels are a key ingredient in what make the Knight Players so successful.

Band Boosters support Assumption’s band program by raising funds to support the band instructor’s needs in various areas including instrument purchase and upkeep, sheet music, uniform replacement, and sending students to summer band camps. Last year the biggest purchase was a beautiful set of 5 Yamaha Symphonic Timpani and covers. We saved for a couple of years to cover this $9,125 purchase! We had enough money left over to purchase a new keyboard, bench, stand, and amp for $1,600. A complete drum set worth over $900 was also purchased for just $400 after receiving a $500 special matching donation.
Contact: Bill Bush, email@example.com The AHS Century Club consists of parents and community members dedicated to supporting, encouraging, and advancing the athletic programs of AHS.

Knight Network's role is to support the mission of Assumption High School, to promote volunteerism, and to allow opportunities for parents of Assumption students to get to know one another better. This mission is fulfilled through supporting school events in the form of food, volunteers, and financial contributions.

Members also decorate the school for Christmas and organize the candy distribution on St. Nick's Day (a student favorite). This group plays a major role with regard to volunteer efforts for April Knight and Post Prom. Knight Network values the teachers and staff at AHS and provides monthly teacher treats for staff meetings. Lunch or dinner is also provided during conferences and select teacher in-service meetings. Knight Network is proud to be an integral part of AHS. Getting involved with this organization is an easy way to get to know people and support the AHS family.
