We are opening registration for only 24 hours to give students a chance to register for activities that still have space available. Please keep in mind that students may only register for a total of 3 activities for this semester. Please refer to the table below for available activities.  

ASA Second Round Registration Timeline:

Please Note:

  • If your child is unable to attend his/ her after school activity, please notify Abeer Dajani, before 2:00 pm, at adajani@acsamman.edu.jo or by cell phone at #079-943-3855.
  • If your child usually rides the bus, but will not be riding due to alternate arrangements, please notify adajani@acsamman.edu.jo before 2:00 PM. This is an imperative step as we want to ensure that all students arrive home in a timely fashion and that the buses are not waiting for your child.

Looking forward to a lot of laughter, joy and learning after school.

Wednesday Activities
Activity Description Grades Location
Arabic Arts and Crafts

Ready for a fantastic crafting session? We have a lot of engaging arts and crafts activities for kids.

Our aim is to make crafting fun and exciting using supplies most households already have at hand.

Crafting with kids has many benefits. Crafting is good for hand-eye coordination, coloring crafts help with pencil grip and let’s not forget the development of fine motor coordination skills. Crafting creations also helps to  build self-confidence and focuses on the sense of self expression. The most important benefit is the strong bonds that you create with other crafters.

1 - 2 Room 112
Arabic Arts and Crafts Students will be introduced to a variety of Arabic Art and handicrafts. They will learn, explore and discover new ways of thinking as they create Fine Arts and basic crafts. Splashes of Arabic language will also be integrated into each session. 3 - 5 Room 114
Gardening Club Students will learn how to grow and care for plants. We will be working in both the greenhouse and ES garden spaces. It’s a great way to green up the school and to learn about the important role that  plants play in our environment as well as learning about where our food comes from! 3 - 5 Room 310
Changemakers When students learn to be empathetic, they develop the skills to see different points of view (a key part of becoming a critical thinker!). Through the Changemakers Club, students will consider multiple perspectives and learn that we are stronger together. When kids have a clear sense of their values, they are able to envision and create a better world. The Changemakers Club will allow students to experience knowledge in action and will learn that their voices matter. During the course of the club sessions, students will explore their core values, passions and interests and tap into opportunities to make positive change in their world! 3 - 5 Room 309
Girls Basketball Yes...just for girls! Students will learn and develop basic and fundamental basketball skills. The program will cover dribbling, shooting, ball handling, passing, athleticism, defense as well as positional play.They will also get an opportunity to participate in a variety of shooting games and take part in friendly competition.
