Parent Involvement

Parent Involvement Opportunities

Parents are an integral part of our school activities and your involvement is welcomed. Below are some specific areas where we can use your assistance.  Please sign up by emailing Kathy Carriveau, Business Secretary, at

Kaleidoscope Board: The KA Governance Board is an eleven member board to oversee the vision/mission and operation of KA based on the charter contract entered into with AASD.  Applications may be filed with the school to serve on the Board at any time.  The Board currently has a vacant seat that would ideally be filled with a parent.  The time commitment can vary, but would normally be about 2-4 hours a month depending on the subcommittee a person serves on.

Coordinator for 8th Grade Farewell Dance/Activity Night: This person (or persons if they want to co-coordinate) works with the principal to help organize a group of parents to plan the Farewell for our outgoing 8th graders.

Coordinator for Staff Appreciation Team: This person works with the team to organize and carry out the staff appreciation activities throughout the school year. Once the activities are named, the coordinator creates and monitors the “Bring It” list and then assigns other team members to specific roles. The coordinator also provides financial accountability for the funds collected and spent.

Staff Appreciation Team: Receives instructions from the coordinator to help with specific tasks (shopping, setting up, clean-up, cooking, etc.). May be monthly or less frequently depending on number of team members.

Reading Buddies Chaperone: Third Fridays of the month, 1 parent needed to walk the students to Columbus for Reading Buddies program in the morning and 1 parent to walk the students to Columbus in the afternoon.

Coordinator for Parent Sponsored Dance on February 3: Create and monitor the “Bring It” list for the dance, purchase any supplies not donated, set-up, assign parents to roles on night of dance.

Lunchroom assistant: Come in one day a week/month or more often to assist with recycling efforts and clean-up, approximately 11:15-1:00.

LMC Volunteer: reshelf books and assist with organizing the library. Help at your convenience (during the school day).
