ASB's Purpose


Welcome to De Portola Middle School ASB! ASB is a group of student leaders who are representatives for all the students of De Portola Middle School. The central goal of ASB is to promote school pride and spirit and build community. We aim to include all students! Other aspects of ASB include: promoting school activities, events, service leadership, as well as creating positive bonds among all students, staff and our community. Normally this would all be done in person, however we are adapting for this distance learning world!
