Getting involved in your child's school benefits everyone... including your child. According to the National PTA, children of involved parents generally achieve more with higher grades, greater motivation and better self esteem.
- Parents are required to volunteer 20 hours per year and 30 hours if they have two or more children at ACES.
- Hours can be earned through Daily Help, Planned Events or Long Term and by attending monthly Parent Workshops offered during the year.
- There are so many ways to help with fundraisers, events & special projects.
How to Submit Volunteer Hours
To receive credit for the hours you serve, you will be required to:
- Pick up and fill out a form and get the form signed by an authorized ACES staff member.
- Turn in the white copy(signed) at the school front desk.
- Retain the yellow copy for your records as it will serve as proof of the volunteer hours served.
- There will be a sign-in sheet at the front door at most school wide events. It is your responsibility to sign-in at the school wide event and turn in the completed, signed volunteer form as mentioned above.
