S.T.E.A.M. Discovery Week April 5-9, 2021

“Towering Above”

This past year has been full of challenges. Here at ASM, we want to celebrate our ability to rise above the challenges as we continue to strive towards excellence in all facets of learning and life. Therefore, the theme for this year’s S.T.E.A.M. Week is “Towering Above.”  Students will be challenged throughout the week to express their views of this theme through projects in science, technology, engineering, art, and math.

Ways to Get Involved!

ASM Engineering Design Challenge

Towers are built in all shapes and sizes as well as for many different purposes.  In this challenge, students will explore how tower design impacts stability and strength.

KG0-KG3: Students will explore examples of towers, how to build towers, materials that can be used in tower building, and then will be challenged to see how tall of a tower they can build.

G1-12: Students will compete within grade levels to see who can build the tallest paper tower. View the introductory video below. Modifications may be allowed at the teacher’s discretion for elementary students.




Winners from each grade level will be announced on Friday, April 9th.  The winning projects will be displayed in the main reception and photos will be posted on ASM’s social media pages.

          Introductory Program

          It’s not too late to switch to an American Education system!

          Would you like for your child to receive a top American Education?  If your child is attending a non-English speaking school and they are still less than 13 years of age, they could qualify for a spot in our intensive English Language Program called Introductory Program.

          We welcome students with little to no English into our Introductory Program which prepares them to follow an American curriculum in English.  
          This is a very small and highly specialized class of no more than 12 students total.  Spots are limited.  Inquire today.

          PROGRAMME D’ACCUEIL INTRO

          Il n’est pas trop tard pour transférer votre enfant dans le système éducatif américain!

          Souhaitez-vous que votre enfant reçoive une éducation américaine qui le prépare à entrer dans une université de son choix ? Si votre enfant fréquente une école non anglophone et qu’il a moins de 13 ans, il pourrait se joindre à notre programme intensif d’anglais appelé programme d’accueil INTRO.

          Nous y accueillons des élèves qui ont peu ou pas d’anglais: Ils suivent un programme spécialisé dans l’enseignement de l’anglais langue seconde, dans une petite classe de moins de douze élèves. Nous les préparons à suivre le programme américain régulier en anglais, en une année scolaire.

          Les places sont limitées. Renseignez-vous dès aujourd’hui.
