At ASB, we partner with parents to provide an excellent education rooted in Catholic values and social justice teachings. Serving as the Catholic parish school for Assumption and St. Bridget parishes, our commitment to service is a defining feature of our culture.
The ASB community supports the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry each month by collecting donations. In addition to monthly food drives, our annual Apple Cup Food Drive is held during November to stock the food pantry in time for the holidays. It is a fun way for students to participate in a friendly completion for a wonderful cause. During the winter students participate in a Sock and Glove Drive for the Seattle Winter Shelter and are challenged to make their own monetary donations during Lent through The Rice Bowls Program. In the Spring, ASB Student Leadership Team leads the Pennies for Patience Drive benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in memory of ASB Alumni Henry Strueli class of 2015.
Students learn through first hand experience the act of service. In the fall, our 1st grade students lead our annual Breakfast Cereal Drive Food Drive. As part of our community outreach, 3rd grade students volunteer at our neighboring Ida Culver to build relationships with the elderly residents. Our 4th grade students bake pies every Thanksgiving for the Blessed Sacrament Food Bank.
Middle school students participate in a three year Missionary Discipleship program in which classroom learning is applied through action that addresses an authentic community need and provides structured time for reflection on the service experience and demonstration of acquired skills and knowledge. Upon graduation, students acquire the skills and motivation necessary to live as a person for others.
