Elementary Student Life
Welcome to ASB's student life programs for the elementary school. We are pleased to offer developmentally-appropriate programs for our KG – Grade 5 students that run throughout the school year.
Student life at the ES campus is about inspiration, dreams, skills, courage, and optimism—some of the key values of our school mission. We inspire our students to enhance an existing area of interest, or explore a new learning opportunity through a range of co-curricular activities. Some of these are held after school, while others extend the school day and occur on Saturday mornings.
ASA (After School Activities) and Studio: ES programs come under the umbrella of Student Life in the Elementary School. Studio:ES Programs provide Grade 3-5 students with the opportunity to extend their school day (between 2:15 pm and 3:50 pm on Thursdays, with some courses on Saturday mornings). It offers a rigorous 90-minute period for students to go deeper into exploring an area of interest or passion.
We hope you find all the information you and your child to make an informed decision about the programs that she/he can participate in when not in the classroom. We also encourage parents to read the weekly Friday Flash for updates and important information on student life at ASB.

American Red Cross Swimming
The American Red Cross Swimming and Water Safety program teaches children to swim and be safe in or around water. As participants develop these skills, they become safer and better swimmers. This is the program to sign your up children if they need to learn how to swim, want to advance their level of swimming, or if they have been recommended to take extra lessons.
Students sign-up by level: Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, and Level 4. Parents are required to register their children for the appropriate swim level class. If you are uncertain of your child's current swim level, please email the Aquatic Coordinator for assessment.
