Does the "Assyrian Church of the East" celebrate the assumption of the Blessed Virgin in its liturgies? Do they even believe in it?

Thanks

I would think they do believe in it and celebrate it, since it is pretty ancient.  Doesn't the celebration of the Dormition/Assumption predate any of the Christological schisms?

The only Assyrian calendar I could find is this one:

On the 15th of August they celebrate the Holy Virgin Mary, but the calendar doesn't specifically state if it is for the Dormition/Assumption.  I would guess that it is.
