Parent Involvement


A core tenet of our charter school’s educational program is parent participation. Parent participation is an asset that enriches the school and helps ensure the success of its students. When families apply for CCAA, they acknowledge that they are strongly encouraged to volunteer at school or school related activities with a goal of 30 hours of their time per year per family. We annually celebrate those families who fulfill or exceed this commitment! These hours can be acquired by volunteering at school, at school functions, or at home doing school related work. Earn TIME AND A HALF for cleaning litter/orchard work on campuses on weekends (schedule with office to ensure campus is open) and WORKING an event earns TIME AND A HALF versus JUST ATTENDING an event.

Thank you for honoring our school community by helping at and/or donating to our school events! Thank you for being role models of INTEGRITY and follow-through for your children! We believe that “many hands make lighter work.” ALL ADULTS MUST SIGN IN AT THE OFFICE BEFORE COMING ON CAMPUS AND MUST WEAR A VISITOR BADGE.
