Parent Involvement

Many volunteer opportunities exist for parents at Assumption Catholic Schools. From helping out in the classroom and supporting athletic teams to planning fundraising events and welcoming new families, parents can find a volunteer role that suits their interests and their schedule. Our parent volunteers find that not only do they help make ACS an even better place for their children, they form lasting friendships and in the process become part of the Assumption family. The school has four major parent volunteer organizations that provide opportunities to be informed and to help serve the students, faculty and staff.

Volunteer Opportunities

Education at Assumption Catholic Schools is not limited to the classroom where students learn the Catholic faith. ACS students and their families are also called to answer the Gospel message by living it as disciples of Christ.

Service outside the school challenges even the youngest ACS students and their families to learn more about their community and its needs. Opportunities for service abound as do those in the Assumption family willing to emulate the actions of Jesus by showing compassion and empathy in order to relieve the burdens of others.

ACS Student Volunteer Opportunities

There are a number of community service sites around the Wisconsin Rapids area that have well organized volunteer opportunities. We encourage students to choose sites that match their interests and challenge them to grow as individuals.

For additional information please contact your child’s school office.

 

Student Ambassador Program:
  • Pope Francis recently stated, “Go, do not be afraid, and serve.  If you follow these three ideas, you will experience that the one who evangelizes is evangelized; the one who transmits the joy of faith receives more joy.”    Service to others is at the heart of the Catholic faith, and it is part of Assumption Catholic Schools’ mission.  We believe that the spiritual growth students experience as they give of themselves through ministry to others will lead to a lifetime of commitment to service. Our hope is that they incorporate service as a core value in their lives and see it as the heart of what it means to be a leader in society. To this end, Assumption Catholic Schools has developed a Student Ambassador program. This program is a formalized volunteer program for our students and will provide opportunities to volunteer in our schools, our parishes and our communities.  The Student Ambassador program will be offered at grade school, middle school and the high school levels.
