CCA values our volunteers and are grateful for those who complete their 40 (or 20 for single parents) hours. It is very important that you login your hours. To log volunteer hours go to www.cherrycreekacademy.org, "Community''. This is our only record of your contributions so it is important that you keep it up to date. Parents are notified of accrued volunteered hours throughout the school year.
Copiers and Laminators: The copiers in the building are for school use only. Parents may not use these for personal copying without permission from the office staff. Parents must have training before using any of the copiers or laminators.
- While we greatly appreciate our parent volunteers and the time devoted to copying, please recognize the need of any teacher or staff member to use the machine at that time, and allow him/her the priority to complete his/her task before completing yours.
