Ascension Lutheran in Torrance is blessed to have a dedicated, full-time Music Director on staff. All students participate in music classes as part of the Ascension curriculum. Choir groups are also available as an extracurricular activity, including “Ringing Angels”, a handbell ensemble for 4th through 8th grade students. “Ringing Angels” is an amazing opportunity for students and requires a commitment for the entire school year.
Ascension staffs a dedicated Art Teacher for grades 5 through 8. Every classroom participates in arts & crafts projects or art instruction associated with their curriculum and grade level. Ascension is also glad to be a part of the South Bay HandsOnArt (SBHOA) program. This is a local, non-profit organization that designs special art projects for area students. SBHOA then trains parent volunteers to become art docents for their own school. These “parent docents” then teach and facilitate the monthly art projects for their own school.
