Why Volunteer?


Volunteering takes less time than you think and has a greater impact than you can imagine! In fact, it is a vital component of your child's education. Loaning your heart and hands to our school benefits all students, faculty and staff. Taking part in school events and projects is also a great way to connect with other parents, teachers, and members of our community!  


There are many fun opportunities available throughout the year, so there's something for everyone.  Even in a world of busy schedules, you might find that volunteering actually fills your bucket in a way that nothing else can.

Where is the party at?


Homeroom parents (HRP) are a vital part of school life here at ACM. It's also a great way to get to know other parents and your child's teacher better.


Primary volunteer duties of the HRP are to plan and carry out the 2 classroom parties for the year and serve as a point of contact for any help the teacher needs. The Winter party is held in December, and the Valentine's Day party is held in February. We appreciate your help!
