Volcano Vista Parent Advisory Supported Activities
The Volcano Vista Parent Advisory works to support the parents, teachers, and staff to bring a closer relationship between the home and the school which promotes a quality learning environment.
Following is a partial list of programs and services that the Parent Advisory has participated in the past. If you can help, in any way, please let us know. We need parents to plan and organize, in addition to providing assistance for carrying out these and other programs:
Academic Boosters: Parents plan and coordinate programs that recognize the academic excellence of VVHS students. In conjunction with the administration, we organize the TOP 10 DINNER and ACADEMIC LETTER CEREMONY (Letters are awarded to students with at least three consecutive semesters of a 3.5 GPA).
Parent Yahoo Group Email List: Provides EMAIL UPDATES about school information, activities, and events at Volcano Vista. This is our main communications tool for getting information and news to the parents. See the back page for sign up instructions.
Fundraising: We are mostly funded by the generous support of our parents, but we also have organized the SMITH’S EARN & LEARN program, and we run a COAT/PURSE CHECK (for a minimal fee) at some of the formal dances. This gives the students a secure place to leave their belongings during the dances.
Teacher/Staff Appreciation: Parents SPONSOR AND CATER APPRECIATION EVENTS throughout the year. Donations of food and drinks are appreciated in this endeavor.
Senior Art Award: The Parent Advisory sponsors an art contest for senior students and awards a monetary prize to the winners.
Volunteers: We coordinate with the school to PROVIDE MUCH NEEDED HELP AT THE SCHOOL (chaperoning dances, helping with registration, working in the library etc.).
