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 fieldtrip or working with school leaders to craft policy.
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
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.
The July-September 2018 entry form can be downloaded 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
