Lunchroom and Recess Help is needed. This is a 3 hour shift and you can log 6 hours for helping (double hours!)

WatchDOGS -Dads (or other male role models) get to spend all day at your kids school. You will help with AM and PM carpool, patrol the school and perimeter throughout the day, as well as helping during all the school lunch times either in the lunchroom or on the playground as a monitor. Sometimes teachers will have you assist in small groups or just roam the classroom helping during instruction. There might even be other odd jobs you can perform around the school.

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. When the temps are below 20 degrees, bundle up and come help. We will give you double hours.


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. When the temps are below 20 degrees, bundle up and come help. We will give you double hours.


The PTO also has many volunteer opportunities and ways to get involved. To see those, please go to the PTO pages. 


Volunteers are expected to make child care arrangements for younger children prior to volunteering at the school. Younger children/siblings are not allowed in the classroom while volunteering. 


We are no longer using the Raptor System to log your volunteer hours. All volunteer hours should be logged into HelpCounter within 48 hours. There is a computer in the front lobby so you can log hours while you are at the school; you may also log hours at home for any PTO work, at home projects or if you forgot to log your hours while you were at school.

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.
