Over the past two years we’ve made great progress in coordinating the efforts of our many parent volunteers across all four campuses. We formed a committee and gave it the name Volunteers In Partnership, or VIP. After much thought, this team is ready to launch into the next phase with some exciting plans and a NAME CHANGE.
Jennifer Brown has graciously and generously offered to be lead this new and growing volunteer organization. When asked why the name change from the original Volunteers In Partnership, or VIP, she had this to say:
“In 2014, the Volunteers In Partnership (VIP) Committee was aptly named. Each and every member of the AACS community is a VIP - Very Important Person. However, the name can also sound exclusive, which wasn’t our intention. Our intent is to connect with ALL of the AACS community, so we decided a name change was in order. We chose Parent Teacher Fellowship because it’s familiar and it reflects the goals of our committee. These AACS PTF exists to support our students, parents, faculty and staff through volunteering, outreach, and communicationy.”
The PTF Steering Committee will continue to provide leadership and coordination for our newly founded PTF. This Steering Committee will meet at least once per month. See the VOLUNTEER page on our new website for the names of these committee members. We are still looking for a couple more members. The Steering Committee is responsible for:
- Volunteer coordination for school-wide community events
- Providing advice and feedback on school culture for AACS leadership consideration
- Assisting with efforts to bless our teachers and connect our families
A major distinction between AACS and other schools is our Christ-centered culture and community. This is not something we take for granted. It takes continuous nurturing and attention and the PTF is part of this effort.
