Come be an integral part of the Parent Group's most important fundraising event of the year! This year, we have four awesome Co-Chairs and are looking for Parent Leads in the following areas: Communications (emails, website updates, signage), Ticket Sales and Marketing, Live and Silent Auction Donations, Class Project Donations, Corporate Donations, and Day-of Volunteer Management. Bring your creativity and skills to work for AVS while getting to know people throughout the community!

Long-term role

Lower School Sports Chair and Sports Team Coordinators

Approximately 40% of our LS students participate in organized sports with AVS, and we need lots of parents to keep all our various sports programs afloat. Sports Team Coordinators solicit team members and enroll teams in leagues well in advance of the season and help coordinate parent volunteers and coaches. The Sports Chair works with the school to help ensure the sports program, BookEnds, and use of school facilities are in sync, serves as a champion and resource for Sports Team Coordinators as needed, and facilitates faculty involvement in LS sports. If you love to see our Aviators challenge themselves physically, persevere, and learn good sportsmanship, please join us! No athletic prowess necessary.

One-time presentation
