Parent involvement is vital to the operation of ASA and keeping tuition rates as reasonable as possible. When parents enroll their children at ASA, they commit to volunteer 40 hours of their time to the school each year (20 hours for parents of half-day students).
The Parent-Teacher Partnership (PTP) is the parent organization that interfaces with the school teachers and coordinates many of the volunteer efforts of the parents.

The fundraising committee manages our seasonal fundraisers and the scrip program. Our fundraisers have included fundraisers like Chinook Books, Poinsettias and hanging Flower Baskets. The scrip program is a year long program that allows families to purchase gift cards and certificates for local stores and restaurants at face value with a percentage benefiting the school. Research and oversees fundraisers (such as candy sales, dine-outs, flower baskets), touching base with individual event coordinators to make sure they understand and follow our “Fundraising Guidelines” and providing support when needed.
