FAMILY NETWORK FLYER
Attached to this email is a flyer for the Family Network. The Family Network is made up of all the students, parents, families, and teachers at ACA.
The group has a board of volunteers that are always looking for other parents and family members to volunteer and help out ACA. Please fill out the form and return it to school so that other parents may contact you to help out during the school year.
All families are asked to volunteer 40 hours per year, and helping out the Family Network is a great way to accumulate those hours.
