Common Vision will be coming to help us with our orchards on BOTH campuses, Saturday September 23 from 10AM to 5PM. Please bring your family and friends to help out during any of those hours! This would count as parent involvement hours for parents who work AND student community service hours for students who help!

Common Vision is the company that helped us start the orchards several years ago and we need more help to keep the orchards going or the district may remove them. Last year they replaced many of our trees, put down weed block, and updated the drip systems. Let's show them that we care about our orchards and appreciate having their expertise by providing several hands to make the work lighter for all!

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

Audience: Volunteer Opportunities

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.
