Student Life

Register NOW for Camp ASB 2020! 

Camp ASB registration forms are now available. Click HERE to download. Camp ASB will be open 7 weeks in June and July, with the month of August closed for maintenance and faculty in-service work. We are again anticipating construction activities, therefore the same cautiousness will guide our plans as we look to add more activities and new experiences to our schedule. It is always our goal to shape the program to best meet the needs of all of our families.

Finally, we are happy to announce that Camp ASB will once again be partnering with Ballard Basketball and Sara Wetstone to offer our very own Camp ASB Basketball Camp. 

The full Camp ASB calendar and KinderCamp information for 2020 will be available in the Bulldog Bulletin at the beginning of April.

Congratulations to the 8th Grade boys ASB basketball team, CYO Champions for the 2019-2020 season! What a great conclusion to their ASB basketball careers. A big thanks to Dave Reinhart, who continues to share his basketball expertise and time with ASB.

Congratulations also to the 8th grade girls basketball team for their 2nd place for the 2019-2020 season.  They finished their ASB basketball careers with a record of 28-1, played in three consecutive CYO Championship games, and won back to back championships in 6th and 7th grade.  We will miss you all; congrats on a great career at ASB!

Uniform returns: Basketball uniforms should be returned to each team's head coach or one parent or family designated by the head coach. Do not send your uniforms into ASB or to Dylan Pouley.  It is very important that each uniform is returned as a set that was given out to each team.  Thank you. 
Equipment returns: Basketball equipment can be returned mornings or afternoons at ASB Extended Care.  There is a wire shelf next to the Extended Care office on which coaches can return their equipment bags.  


Volleyball games begin next weekend, February 22-23. Please visit CYO Team Sideline to find the complete game schedule for each team. GO BULLDOGS!!
