AXIS School Action Committee

The School Action Committee (SAC) brings together families, staff, and community members to create and implement a plan to promote high achievement within a school. This committee meets throughout the school year to present the opportunity for key stakeholders (namely parents and AXIS staff + teachers) to have a voice in their school.

The AXIS SAC is comprised of these subcommittees:
The Parent Engagement Subcommittee is is where all the volunteering happens! From school-wide events to classroom opportunities, SAC is in charge of organizing all the amazing human beings that want to help our school grow. In order to make sure our kids have the best experience and to support our teachers best, we need a lot of parent involvement. Click on the image to the left to see how we do it!
The Fundraising Subcommittee is the backbone to our SAC, as without funds, we wouldn't have the option to 
put on events like the Culture and Science Fair, Teacher Appreciation Week (did you see it last year?!), or in-class culture events. Click on the image to the right to learn more and bring your energy and creativity as we continue to support these awesome events for our kids.
The Communications Subcommittee maintains our public and parent-only social media accounts, keeping the information flowing and the engagement growing. It also decides on how school events should be marketed both to AXIS families and to the community.
The sky is the limit!! Here are some ideas - 
1. Join a Committee! Email the SAC Parent Engagement Chair if you have an interest in supporting any of the committees listed above.
2. Volunteer your time. Get started by clicking on the "Volunteer with Us" button below.
3. Attend SAC Meetings. Find meeting dates below and join us to find out what SAC is working on and how you can help. Or call in to share with us your own ideas!
4. Donate money or requested supplies (supplies will be requested via the volunteer button below and through your Room Rep, as well).
5. Support our fundraising efforts by selecting AXIS as your charity of choice at King Soopers, BoxTops, and Amazon Smile (same Amazon, but also donates part of your purchase to AXIS!) Learn more about how to support our fundraising efforts in our Fundraising Page.
6. Join the Facebook group for your child's partner language so you can connect with other parents.
We look forward to having you participate in the SAC, an organization meant to bring parents and teachers/staff closer to one another!
