How many schools host talent shows that take three evenings to complete?
Introducing the annual Almaden Country School ASSETS – our All School Student Exhibition and Talent Showcase — a popular ACS tradition for more than a decade and a lively celebration of student success and skills. Each spring ASSETS exhibits highlight some of the students’ best classroom artwork, enrichment projects and live talent performances by individual students and groups across the grade levels.
The ASSETS celebration reflects the emphasis ACS places on project-based learning, creative and performing arts, and our belief that every child can shine if enabled to feel safe, special and valued. The ASSETS exhibits and performances are as varied and enthralling as the children providing them!
ASSETS is a festive recognition each year of the pure potential of children, and the celebration embodies the ACS mission: Discovering the gifts in every child.
