The school requires that parents volunteer for twenty hours of service to the school each academic year. It is our belief that once parents become involved they will want to do more than twenty hours. Volunteer activities will be as diverse as the professions and vocational backgrounds of our parent constituency. Activities will range from office clerical work to editorial and artistic services; organizing and hosting school events; fundraising; chaperoning field trips and numerous other activities. A monthly memo goes home with the month's upcoming volunteer opportunities. To review the March Volunteer Memo click here: May Volunteer Memo.
School Advisory Council
The purpose of the Council is to serve in an advisory capacity, and to provide a forum to facilitate communication among the HAAS parents, teachers, Hollywood community, and administration, as related to school-wide issues, in an atmosphere of due process, cooperation, and trust. The following committees were created in specialized areas that may concern you most. The concerns will be presented to the School Advisory Council and Administration. We value your participation.

Parents are required to volunteer 20 hours per family or prorated to two hours a month if their children are accepted after school has begun. Ten hours of volunteer service should be completed by December 15th. Students whose parents have not completed the 20 hours by May 15th will be placed on the waiting list.
Parents have many opportunities to volunteer their time both at school and at home. Volunteer sign-up sheets will be available at Open House before school starts and during Back to School Night. Other opportunities are announced throughout the school year.
To volunteer in classrooms, please make prior arrangement with the teacher so that instructional time is not lost.
It is suggested that a minimum of 2 hours of volunteer service be spent working on school fundraisers and special activities.
