WatchDOGS -Dads (or other male role models) get to spend all day with your kids in their classrooms. Sometimes teachers will have you assist in small groups or just roam the room helping during instruction. You will also help with Car Pool, patrol the school and perimeter a couple times during the day, as well as helping during the lunch time either in the lunchroom or on the playground as a monitor. Sometimes there might even be other odd jobs you can perform around the school.
Lunch/Recess -Our lunchroom could not run efficiently without our wonderful parent volunteers. Our Lunchroom League (think Justice League) volunteers assist our lunch aides in the lunchroom. Spend some time outside monitoring the students during the recess.
Lost and Found -Help clean, organize and straighten Lost and Found. Help items find their owners, any unclaimed and unlabeled items will be donated.
AM Carpool -The morning shift is from 7:40-8:15am. Please help open car doors for our students. Help keep traffic flowing and move students safely from the curb.
PM Carpool -The afternoon shift is from 3:15-4:00pm. Please help open car doors for our students on the sidewalk or you can help que cars in the parking lot. The more adults we have helps ensure the safety of the students, other volunteers and AVA staff.

AVA believes that the success of each student will be a shared responsibility of students, teachers, parents, staff, and community leaders. Volunteers enhance the school and its culture and character through their involvement. Accordingly, a strong family involvement program will be implemented. AVA expects 30 volunteer hours per family per school year. Single-parent families are expected to volunteer 15 hours per school year. The volunteer school year shall coincide with AVA’s fiscal year, and hours shall accrue from July 1 through June 30. If your family has special circumstances that make it difficult for you to meet the expected volunteer hours, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator. Many volunteer opportunities exist within AVA’s PTO. The PTO is an organization comprised of parent volunteers for the purpose of providing community support, fundraising and planning various events within our school community.
