The primary purpose of the Co-Curricular Activity program at Assumption Catholic School is to promote the physical, mental, aesthetic, social, emotional, and moral well-being of the students through participation and competition.
December – March
The Archery Club, which follows the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP), is a program aimed at improving educational performance among students in grades 4th – 8th. Through it, students learn focus, self-control, discipline, patience, and the life lessons required to be successful in the classroom and in life. The emphasis of good sportsmanship and team relationship is enhanced during preparation to compete in the State tournament. Students have the opportunity to advance to the National tournament.

Winter Ride (Middle School)
Winter Ride is a much-loved and longstanding program for Assumption middle schoolers, and many students count the days until they are old enough to participate! It’s part of the Physical Education curriculum for middle school and gives students an opportunity to learn new skills and experience a winter sport with their classmates. Led by our P.E. teacher, Miss McIntosh, and made possible by parent chaperones, students have a choice of activities at Mount Baker or the Sportsplex one day/week during the month of January.
Chess Club starts in October and is open to 1st through 8th grade. Chess is an award-winning program, supporting excellent progression from novice to experienced competitors. The Chess Club is a competitive program that competes in tournaments all over Whatcom County, not only as individuals, but as a team as well. In April those who qualify will compete in the Washington State Elementary Chess Championships. The program is coached by Mr. Peter Witecki. The club generally meets on Wednesdays after school. Watch for specifics when to sign-up in the school newsletter.
