Volunteering at American Academy
There are many ways to get involved and volunteer at American Academy! We always need volunteers for carpool, lunch and lunch recess duty. In fact, even if the sign-up is full, feel free to come on by and help out! We never turn away the generous offer of help from our parents.
This page lists just a few of the different volunteer opportunities that are available at the school. Your room parent and/or teacher may also publish volunteer opportunities. Room parents often coordinate opportunities to volunteer for in the classroom, and the PTOs offer volunteer opportunities on a variety of committees.
If you would like to get started as a volunteer, check out the sign-ups below (activated during the school year) or attend one of the monthly PTO meetings at your campus. If you would like to learn more about the inner workings at American Academy, feel free to attend an SAC meeting! The PTO and SAC meeting dates are posted on the front page Event Calendar during the school year.
PLEASE NOTE: Volunteer hours must be in service to American Academy (classroom, PTO, PAB, SAC, recess, carpool, library, etc.), not an outside organization, even if it’s a really good one, even if it meets at the school or is made up entirely of American Academy students (for example, volunteering to help TGA Tennis teach American Academy students in the gym doesn’t count; volunteering to run a Girl or Boy Scout troop at the school doesn't count).
Volunteers may only log hours for actual time spent, NOT in exchange for dollar value of items purchased. In other words, volunteer hours are not awarded for monetary donations. But time spent acquiring donated items or gift cards absolutely counts (time to drive to the store, etc.).
Thank you for volunteering!
