Get Involved: Volunteer!

AJ Preschool and the Parent Association partner together in and out of the classroom throughout the school year. We welcome parents, extended family members, and special friends to encourage and reinforce the connection between home and school. One way for you to accomplish this is by becoming involved in a committee. Being a part of any of these groups will also help connect you with other parents and community members. There’s a way to volunteer for everyone! Please review the volunteer opportunities below and indicate the ways in which the volunteer(s) in your family would like to participate and support this year’s activities. Please fill this out and return with your other forms to the office by August 1.

If you have any questions, contact Shannon Benovitz, Chair of the Parent Association, at 502.295.6614 or shannonbenovitz@gmail.com

How You Can Help

Throughout the year, the parent association sponsors events for AJ students, families and staff. From serving on a planning committee to supporting any of the school-wide service projects, your time is valuable and a key component to AJ’s success!


Family Open House and Picnic

Our back to school kick-off event! Parents and children visit their classrooms and teachers to see what the students have been working on, then we all move across the street to Douglass Community Center for a picnic dinner, play, and music from John Gage.

Trivia Night
