Girls, How should I ask out this girl?

There's this girl in my ELA class that I really like. She's smart, funny, beautiful, and more. She's a very nice person, who values quality of friends versus quantity. She also likes sports, which is a grest bonus.
I only met her this year, and have spoken once or twice in group discussions so far (started class in September).
How should I approach her? I'm thinking of staying something like "Hey, are you free this weekend?", or something along those lines.
I'd like some ideas on how to approach her, and what's the best way to ask her. This is my first time asking a girl out. I do plan on doing it in person.

Thanks in advance for your help.
