ASB stands for Associated Student Body and it represents the interests and goals of the entire New Vista Middle School Student Body. Currently there are two ASB classes - one for our 7th grade students to develop leadership skills and our 8th grade class that is part elected and part appointed. Students who enroll in ASB do so because they recognize that there is more to being successful in school than simply doing homework. Having a positive atmosphere during the school day where students feel wanted and accepted is critical to their success. To that end, the officers and appointed members of the ASB class focus on providing engaging activities that ensure a well-rounded middle school experience.
Students in ASB plan, organize, and participate in such activities as formal and informal dances, Spirit Week, grade-level competitions, community awareness projects, cultural events, and Staff Recognition throughout the year. Most of the funds for ASB come from fundraisers as well as the student-run vending program where snacks and drinks are made available during school events throughout the year.
Students must maintain high academic and citizenship grades to remain in the class and are additionally required to perform 10 hours of community service throughout the school year. Students are elected or appointed to the class each spring for the following school year. If you are interested in being a leader at New Vista, consider running for an office or applying to be appointed to the class.
