Volunteering

volunteers landscapingThe ASB School Parents’ Association has a policy that each family contributes 35 service hours to the school each year. (17.5 hours for single parent and preschool families.) These hours include one hour of traffic duty per child. Additional hours may be given in a variety of ways.

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 various opportunities available for you: participating on a committee, working with kids in the classroom or on a fieldtrip or working with school leaders to craft policy.

Volunteer Opportunities

Under the oversight of the Parent Association, ASB School has nearly 40 standing committees (organized into seven groups overseen by the Parent Board) responsible for carrying out specific responsibilities. Each year, the Parent Board recruits individuals to lead these committees. Committee chairs, in turn, are supported by volunteers who sign up through our Volunteer Form. The current opportunities are listed to reflect the Parent Board’s oversight structure. Volunteer Opportunities, including a complete description of all service hour opportunities, can be found here.

Recording Volunteer Hours

As you complete your service hours, you may enter them in the Family Service Hours form under “Online Forms” in Skyward. Once finished entering your hours for the year, you may submit the form from within Skyward. Instructions on entering hours in Skyward can be found here.

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 Mary Patneaude at mpatneaude@asbschool.org.
