Volunteering

One of our greatest blessings is our large, active and committed group of parents who do so much to make our children’s educational experience as rich as possible.  Parental involvement, whether it be volunteering in the classroom, providing administrative support, or lending special expertise, is essential to the strength of our community and each child’s educational journey.

Each family commits a minimum of 35 total volunteer hours (17.5 hours for single parent and preschool families) to the school and/or the parishes. Parents, students, other relatives, friends and neighbors may contribute the hours. There are many varied and rewarding service opportunities for you to help. You can find a calling that matches your skills, the level of commitment you can make and your schedule. There are no requirements regarding how the volunteer hours are performed.  Some families choose to support a specific project each year, while others prefer to volunteer in the classroom throughout the year.  Parents may sign up to help during the school registration process in the spring; at back-to-school sign-ups in the fall; and on an as-needed basis throughout the year.

Please note that the Archdiocese of Seattle requires all school volunteers attend a Safe Environment training class through VIRTUS.  Volunteers are required to register and monitor their own compliance through the VIRTUS program.  If you have any questions, please email Jen Rioja.

Current volunteer needs are published each week in the Bulldog Bulletin in the Parent Board section. For questions please email volunteers@asbschool.org.

Volunteer hours are tracked quarterly. Families will input their hours in FACTS Family Portal. All incomplete hours will be billed via FACTS in June.
