Several CCAA students are doing a Community Service Project for the New Hope Street Ministry. They service around 500 homeless people a week. We are asking for donations to help out the homeless. The ministry does not accept any kid items, stained clothes, house or garden items.

 

They have two drop-off locations which are 1290 Antrim dr, Roseville and 7213 Three Sisters Court in Citrus Heights. You can drop off any items at either of the CCAA campuses on April 5th - CLEARLY MARKED AS DONATIONS FOR NEW HOPE.

 

Or you can call Crysta at (916) 534-3633 for any other things you would like to discuss. We may be able to arrange pick-up between March 27- April 7th. We will be joining New Hope Street Ministry April 8th to pass out the items received. If you would like to set up a date to volunteer, call Wilma at (916) 709-8157.  

 

The items they are in great need of are listed in the attached file.

As you know, we have been sending volunteers to work concessions at Levi Stadium to earn money for specific programs.  YOU decide where the money within our PTO accounts is placed.  This is ideal for EAST COAST TRAVELERS but it is open to ALL CCAA parents who would like to raise money for extra-curricular activities, including other non-profit organizations like outside sports, gymnastics, etc.

 

We have now just received word that we can sign up to work concessions at the BRAND NEW Golden One Arena in downtown Sacramento! We need to know who is committed to work some of the events so we can gauge how many workers we can guarantee for each event.  Volunteers must be 18 years old or older and over 21 to serve alcohol. The group receives an 8% commission from the gross sales of that stand which will be divided equally among the volunteers working that event. There will be no parking provided so you will have to find your own parking. Uniform must be provided by volunteer (black pants, white tee-shirt, black shoes preferably nonslip). Three mandatory training sessions (TIPS, Food Handler, TEAM) must be completed by each volunteer before first event worked. Current Levi Stadium volunteers will only have to complete the TEAM training if they have a certificate of completion already on file with Yuvonne for TIPS and Food Handler. There will be evening and weekend sessions available (schedule TBA). Typically volunteers report to the arena 90 minutes before an event, work the event, and then clean stands before leaving.

 

If you commit to working an event and do not show, CCAA will be charged a $75 fee. At this time we need to determine how many events we can commit to and how many people will be willing to work these events. Please look at the list of events below and reply with those you can commit to FIRMLY.

 

Send your dates and questions, please contact CCAA parent, Yuvonne Ramirez, email yuvonneramirez@gmail.com

We always need parents to volunteer to drive for field trips and other school events!

 

The process can take up to 8 weeks, and must be be completed annually.  Please do this process early in the school year. We have had some drivers not getting qualified in time and not able to drive for their event.

 

To ease the time, energy and small fee you will earn 15 parent involvement hours (if you qualify)--that's half your hours for the year just for signing up!  You can then earn additional hours for time spent driving and at events.

 

According to the Transportations policy, this process is required each year.

  1. If you do not already have a staff or volunteer badge a volunteer form must be filled out and signed by the principal. Call the district 916 566-1600 and they can guide you through the time, and requirements of getting your badge.
  2. Proof of liability insurance with coverage of at least $100,000 per person and $300,000 per incident.
  3. Proof of a valid California Driver’s License.
