Volunteering

volunteers landscapingIf you have any questions about volunteering, email your question to pb.president@asbschool.org with “volunteering” in the subject line. The current volunteer coordinator will get back to you.

The 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 field trip 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 groups overseen by the Parent Board) responsible for carrying out specific responsibilities.

Volunteer Leaders and Roles for 2019-2020 are listed here: Volunteer Leads. There are still some open volunteer positions. If you are interested in filling one, using the school directory, contact the parent board lead associated with that position or email pb.president@asbschool.org with “volunteering” in the subject line. If you would like to be part of a volunteer committee that already has a lead, contact the lead associated with that committee.


Recording Volunteer Hours

Volunteering is an essential component to the collaboration and partnership between ASB School and our families. All families are required to complete 35 volunteer hours each school year. Volunteer hours are tracked quarterly. Families will receive a tracking sheet at the end of each quarter to complete and return to school. Parent Board coordinates volunteers to compile the hours and report final numbers to the school office. All incomplete hours will be billed via FACTS in June.

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.
